Ron Aguere Blanco is the opening entry in this Canarian rum producers range. The Canary Islands were one of the original major western producers of sugar cane and this rum comes from that long tradition.
A litre bottle of Ocumare's excellent white rum, produced in Venezuela, where rums have to be aged at least two years. The colour is then removed by filtration, making this a white anejo rum and extremely smooth and silkily-textured to boot.
The spiced rum scene has ignited following the demise of the old Sailor Jerry recipe. This addition to the fray is from the well-respected St. Lucian brand Chairman's Reserve, and has been described by one of the TWE crew as 'sex in a glass'.
A balanced blend of pot still and continuous still distillates, the majority of which have been aged around five years. Gosling's Gold is a great easy-drinking Bermudan rum, suitable for mixing in cocktails or drinking straight over ice with a slice of lime.
