Bones Aged Rum is a small batch pot still rum aged in both French and American oak barrels, as well as Sherry Casks, for a minimum of six years.
Playing on the pirate-age sailor’s theme, the company likes to say this is “smooth rum for the rough seas.”
Aromas of oak and vanilla dominate the nose, with trailing hints of burnt sugar, almond and light banana. On the palate, brown sugar leads to bold vanilla, cherry-almond and baking spices over toasted oak before hints of bitter cocoa.
Bones aged rum from the Virgin Islands is an easy sipper with a few good ice cubes, and brings some rich rum flavor to your favorite tropical cocktails.
When visiting the Bones Rum store in Saint Thomas, check out the very popular “Pour Your Own Rum” bar on the Charlotte Amalie waterfront.
Bones Aged Rum is available at popular liquor stores in at least twelve states and several online outlets.
The 750ml bottle, at 40% abv, sells for about $29.
