Some friends went to Puerto Rico and brought back some Ron del Barrilito rum.
I wouldn’t normally consider rum a sipping drink and instead normally use it in cocktails. However, this rum has a unique sweet flavor (from the molasses) and smooth taste that makes it a pleasure to drink on its own.
The brown sugar nose and layered taste mean that instead of a flat, sweet flavor you get a complex liquor that slowly builds in sweetness and ends with a hint of citrus.
While going to Puerto Rico to get it sounds wonderful, you can order it online.
