Aged rums are the pinnacle of rum production. What are the best aged rums? These sophisticated rums are designed to be enjoyed without being mixed in a cocktail, although some rum enthusiasts use them as premium ingredients in libations. The best premium rums are served as one might serve a fine single malt scotch or cognac, neat in a fine snifter or on the rocks. The labels often contain a statement of the age.

Bundaberg Double Barrel
- Aged rum with additional barreling in port and sherry casks. Initial aromas of Bourbon and sherry notes develop into aromatic cedar/cigar box, with a pleasant sweetness balanced by dry fortified wine and over-ripe fruit, vanilla, raisins and dates, dry wine grapes, dark banana and toasted oak. On the palate, sweet ripe banana and warm honey lead to dried cherry and tart grape (wine) with a mature woodiness building to a traditional "Bundy heat" mid-palate followed by a lingering dark dried fruit long after.
