George Bowman Pioneer Spirit Colonial Era Dark Caribbean Rum

George Bowman Pioneer Spirit Colonial Era Dark Caribbean Rum Wine Details

Description: This special pot-still rum has been distilled, aged and blended much like it was centuries ago. Imported from a small rum maker down south amidst the palm trees and sugar cane, this rum spent years aging in the Caribbean heat to garner its dark color and full flavor. This dark colonial era rum is hand bottled in Fredericksburg, Virginia, but the taste will remind you of warm Caribbean beaches. The subtle aroma of coconut and vanilla are followed by the rich flavors of molasses, honey and brown sugar. Drink straight, over ice or in your favorite rum cocktail.

Varietal Definition
Rum is a distilled beverage made from sugarcane by-products such as molasses and sugarcane juice by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak and other barrels.


Reg says...
Good - but not as intense or subtle as some dark rums - probably less time in the barrel ?
