Just 600 Bottles Of Private Reserve Available In The USA
Already an outstanding rum from the Dominican Republic, Ron Barcelo Rum puts out a special edition once a year, and it’s available again this fall.
Barceló Imperial Premium Blend 30 Aniversario is a private reserve of the excellent Barceló Imperial, a 10-year-old blended rum aged in American white oak. Retailing for $120 per 750ml bottle, only 9,000 bottles are bottled annually, with just a precious 600 allocated for distribution in the United States.
It is being released in October.
“We wanted to honor the Barceló family tradition of blending the best-preserved collection of naturally aged rum, and celebrate more than three decades of our signature rum, Barceló Imperial,” said Ron Barceló Master Distiller Eduardo Galindez.
“Getting to the highest grade of excellence and seducing the most discerning tastes of our consumers around the world is our core motivation.
“We believe creativity is an integral part of rum making and this philosophy is evident in every drop of the Barceló Imperial Premium Blend 30 Aniversario which we consider the finest jewel among Dominican rums.”
Available once a year, each bottle is hand-numbered with an engraved horse shoe shaped wooden display pedestal and comes in an embossed collectable tin, making it a very desirable addition to any serious rum enthusiast’s collection.
Set aside for additional aging in barrels made from selected cuts of French white oak previously used for aging highly prestigious Bordeaux wines, the intense amber color of the rum in each bottle is achieved during this extensive aging process.
The aroma is rich and involving with hints of dried fruits, vanilla and caramel coated chocolate. The taste is that of an exquisitely aged rum with notes of mocha, melted toffee, spiced nuts and crème brulee.
The Imperial Premium Blend 30 Aniversario is 43% alcohol by volume and can be found in select stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Texas.
The brand is imported by Shaw-Ross International Importers.
