Bacoo Rum hails from the Dominican Republic, and this one here has been aged for a whole 11 years. It’s column distilled from molasses before it’s aged in bourbon casks. The name comes from a Caribbean legend, the Bacoo, which is similar to a genie in a bottle, though in this one you’ll just find good ol’ tasty rum.
Brilliant bronze colour. Aromas and flavours of toasted fig bread, spiced chocolate pistachio toffee, tres leche cake, and crème brulee with a velvety, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, engaging, long sarsaparilla with spumoni gelato, pink peppercorn, hint of bitter bark and roots, and honeyed espazote finish. An interesting, lightly herbal aged rum.
