Back to Columbia, our next rum was from Gobernador, with the oldest rum matured for 12 years. Now this rum was a real treat!
Ron Gobernador 12 year 35%
- Nose – Prunes, dates and plums! Christmas pudding, very rich, lots of candied dry fruits, simply gorgeous
- Palate – Wow! Rich and complex without being overly sweet, just superb
- Finish – Very dry finish, slightly salty at the end
For most of this, this was a clear winner. It also went beautifully with a cigar.
Here are the Columbian rums we enjoyed that same evening:
Plus a bonus rum from The Syechelles:
