Happy anniversary baby, got Rum on my mind … and this special Rum Nation Barbados 12 YO “Anniversary Edition” is a party we will never forget. 
 
Rum Nation is an Italian company that was started in 1999, when founder Fabio Rossi became interested in Rum. Rossi has a long history in importing Whisky and it was, ironically perhaps, on a distillery visit to Scotland that he first discovered his penchant towards Rum. Years after this visit, Rum Nation was born, and has been distilling and bottling Caribbean Rum ever since.
 
Every edition of Rum Nation is special. Heck, almost by definition, special is what they do. Rum Nation Barbados 12 YO is called the “Anniversary Edition” because it celebrates the 15th edition they have offered over 15 years in existence, and this is a very special anniversary indeed. 
 
For this edition, Rum Nation has returned to Barbados and the famous R. L. Seale Distillery. The Rum is created from molasses in column stills before being aged in ex-Bourbon barrels. Now, for the average Rum, this would be more than good enough, but not for Rum Nation. They send their cut of this already amazing Rum back to Piedmont, Italy, to age two more years in ex-Brandy and Oloroso Sherry casks for good measure. And this Rum tastes as good as all that and more. So bust out those party favors and put on your dancing shoes, because this is an anniversary we will not soon forget.

The traditional gift for a fifteenth anniversary is crystal. This seems fitting enough, since the bottle for Rum Nation Barbados 12 YO is a beautiful, oval decanter worth hanging on to, even when the Rum is long gone.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses; the sweet and syrupy residue left behind after sugar crystals are extracted from sugar cane juice. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, which can contribute to the final flavour.
