Proof66 Notes

Vizcaya rums are made in what they describe as a "Cuban formula" made from pressed sugar cane juice and an old-style traditional distillery. Using sugar cane juice rather than molasses is often called rhum agricole and will be familiar to those drinking French style rums or Brazilian cachaca. The distillery once made rum in Cuba but moved to the Dominican Republic in 1960; they still use a "secret family recipe."

A sweet, light bodied rum that is really mellow and has a bright vanilla citrus character, and some extra grapey sweetness that tastes more like it was aged in a port barrel (instead of the bourbon barrels it actually uses). I know it says it's a dark rum, but it is gold colored and is made from cane as opposed to molasses so it isn't nearly as dark as something like Myers. Classy and agreeable, about on par with Zaya, or maybe Jameson 18 year (in terms of how smooth it is). Doesn't need mixing at all, it's good straight out of the bottle with no need for decanting either.
