This is some very flavorful 22-year-old rum from Trinidad. It spent part of its life aging in used sherry barrels before being bottled at a healthy 92 proof. It's the color of oxblood, just beautiful...plus its aroma fills the room with aged, sweet sherry. The rum itself certainly has a palpable sherry presence, and they (Bristol) suggest adding a few water drops or an ice cube, but I like it as is. It's a really tasty rum, very easy to drink and enjoy.
