What I’m Drinking Now: Montecristo 12 Year

Montecristo 12 Year RumWhen it comes to sipping rums, my flavor palatte leans towards the Guatemalans (and to a lesser extent the other Central American rums). Something about the slow aging in the cool mountain air …

Montecristo Rum’s natural amber color is created by using charred American oak barrels previously used for bourbon. It has a smooth texture, complimented by vanilla and honey overtones, and is created from hand-blended barrels of 12 to 23-year-old rum. Excellent on the rocks.
