Dominican Republic. Barcelo Rum Imperial 750ml 80 proof.
Our history begins in 1929 with a young entrepreneur's dream. It didn't take long for the Barcelo brand to become a standout among local rums, and its growth created one of the largest and most prestigious Dominican enterprises.
Ron Barcelo Imperial, distilled from Caribbean sugar cane, is a blend of rums aged up to six years in used bourbon barrels. On the nose, pronounced aromas of brown sugar, cocoa, and tobacco leaf are complemented by hints of leather and oak. The palate is warm and rich, with sweet notes of caramel, vanilla, and honey that extend through to the finish. Balanced, complex, and impeccably smooth, this rum is perfect for cocktails, but can also be enjoyed on its own.
Aged ten years, it was selected as “The Best Rum in the World” by the Beverage Institute of Chicago in both 2000 and 2001. It reached the highest qualification (97/100) never before awarded to a rum by the Institute, after calling it “a superb world-class drink”.
