Rum Makers Are Elevating Sugar's Nectar to Higher Levels

RON BARCELO IMPERIAL (Dominican Republic)
An aggressive, fiery rum, the Barcelo calms down somewhat with water and shows its simple charms: citrus, honey and caramel. It seemed to balance well with the cigars, but didn't give any extraordinary results. It was a good complement with the La Flor, giving it a cedary quality. It stood in, but faired a little worse, with the Hoyo, which became gassy. The rum gained some improvement from a match-up with the Ashton. --JB
