Review: 1 Barrel Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 9, 2014

Baron Bliss1 Barrel Rum is a product of Belize, the northernmost mainland country of Central America. A former British Colony, Belize lies just south of Mexico with the Caribbean Sea to the east and Guatemala to the west and south. Travellers Liquors Limited has been involved in the production of 1 Barrel Rum in Belize since the early 1960s originally working with independent distillers. In 1989, Tavellers acquired full control of their own distillery and has remained in full control of the brand ever since.

The 1 Barrel Rum is made from locally grown Belize sugar cane. According to the Travellers’ website, this cane is cut and crushed in a manner which retains its natural flavors, and the all of the rum is aged in Kentucky oak barrels for at least one year.

You may read my review of 1 Barrel Rum by clicking the following excerpt link:

Review: 1 Barrel Rum

“… The aroma from the glass is not overly complex; but it is nice with what I will call a laid back, lightly sweet quality. The initial scents and aromas I receive are very reminiscent of butterscotch and caramel, and I notice some subtle baking spices and a touch of tobacco appearing after I allow the glass to decant …”

Note: Included in the review is a nice tall cocktail (Baron Bliss) which pays homage to Henry Edward Ernest Victor Bliss, more commonly known as Baron Bliss. He was a British-born traveller who bequeathed approximately two million dollars ($US) to a trust fund for the benefit of the citizens of what was then (March 9, 1926) the colony of British Honduras. That colony of course is now known as Belize.

Please enjoy the review!

    Hey chip, have you had a chance to try the latest product from Travellers? Its called Tiburon Rum its in a ultra cool bottle that has a sharks tooth from Belize tied around the neck of the bottle. I know if I ever get out to Belize I’ll be stopping by their retail center and grabbing a bottle of the vintage Don Omario 15 year Rum.

    Hi there! Been a long time browser of your website, and this review finally got me to comment. Went to Belize a couple years ago, and this stuff is everywhere. Rapidly became a favorite–when you can get a 1.75L bottle for $10-15, how could it not? At a place called Yoli’s in Placencia I had a Cran Barrel, 50/50 cranberry juice and rum, and I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite cocktail still (though to be fair, it might just be nostalgia). I can’t get any in Colorado where I live, but my brother in Wyoming can, and I always make him bring a couple bottles when he comes to visit. I’d say it’s well worth seeking out and trying.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
