Aged Rum

To benefit from the title Aged Rum, A rum must be stocked in an oak barrel for a minimum of three years. When it is put in the barrel, Aged Rum is a White Agricultural Rum (made with pure sugar cane juice and vesou). According to French legislation, all the varieties of Aged Rum are the result of ageing in oak for at least 3 years without interruption. Aged Rums are mostly blended. That is to say that several vintages are mixed to obtain an Aged Rum. So, Aged Rum comes from this mixture of several different vintages, of complicated blends, subtle harmonies and rigorous aromatic balance.     For complete transparency with regards to the age of Aged Rum, only the youngest can be indicated on the label.

Aged Rum can be distinguished visually by its golden colour, and on the palate, by its woody robe which is reminiscent of Dark Rum or Brandy. As a result of its conservation in wooden casks, Aged Rum is often darker than Dark Rum. With time, rum is impregnated with the brown essences of the wood. When circulating in the wood fibre, the rum extracts the tannin, so the wood transmits an atypical colour and flavour to the rum. The wooden casks in which Aged Rum are conserved may already have stocked bourbon, brandy or whisky. Logically, the previous use of the wooden barrels has an influence on the flavour of the future Aged Rum.

A comparison between Dark or Paille Rum and Aged Rums:

  • Dark or Paille Rum: 18 months conservation in a wooden barrel
  • Aged Rum VO (Very Old): 3 years conservation in a wooden barrel
  • Aged Rum VSOP (Very Special Old Pale): 4 years conservation in a wooden barrel
  • Aged Rum XO (Extra Old): 6 years conservation in a wooden barrel
  • Traditional Aged Rum: 5 to 7 years conservation in a wooden barrel
  • Aged Rum “hors d’âge”: 8 to 12 years conservation in a wooden barrel
  • Vintage Aged Rum: 15 years or more ageing in a wooden barrel. Vintage Rum can be aged for up to 70 years in a wooden cask.

Aged Rum in starred gastronomic restaurants

Aged Rum is highly appreciated and often consumed in starred gastronomic restaurants. There is a large number of Aged Rum references proposed on the wine menu of the greatest names in gastronomy, as Aged Rum is one of the most noble Rums. Its conservation for several years in a wooden cask means that Aged Rum is rare. It is also an exceptional Rum with regards to its unusual flavour and aromas. Thanks to its long conservation in oak casks, Aged Rum has sweeter notes than White Rum. Aged Rum can therefore be a good accompaniment to deserts. During a gastronomic meal, Aged Rum is mainly consumed as a liqueur.

Traditionally, Aged Rum is savoured slowly then sipped to appreciate its delicacy like Brandy. There are similar flavours between Aged Rum and Brandy as their methods of production are related. Aged Rum is a fine alcohol which is drunk neat, this allows the full enjoyment of all its aromas. It is drunk in a narrow glass to allow the fragrance to be concentrated and consequently appreciated.

For a starred gastronomic restaurant, it is natural to offer the most delectable bottles of Aged Rum. It is important to realise that the rare quality of these alcohols results in an increase in the price of the bottle and therefore in the price of the glass in starred gastronomic restaurants. Aged Rum is drunk in small quantities by the glass. Its potency permits each Rum amateur to be satisfied with a small quantity of this drink.
