Out-of-this-World Rums
“Houston, we’ve detected possible signs of life out here.”
“Interesting, Johnson. Can you get a detailed read on it?”
“Looks like it’s own universe, Houston. And it smells suspiciously like...Rum.”
“Rum, you say? Hold tight, Johnson. We’re sending back up.”
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to explore the depths of the Rum Galaxy.

Your galactic expedition will take you to the far reaches of both hemispheres, where undiscovered worlds of Rum awaits. Here, the French / Caribbean, Grenada, Peru, Pacific and Costa Rica hold court—drawing intrepid Rum seekers into their orbit.
Now, it’s your turn—and there’s no time to waste. Are you bold enough to seek and savor these superstar Rums before they go supernova? Remember, luck favors the bold. Let the journey begin!
Ah, the Rum galaxy. Truly a wondrous place. But much like our universe, its origins are a bit, uh, murky. It’s likely Big Bang moment: the 17th century.

Caribbean sugar plantations had a serious problem on their hands—an oversupply of industrial waste in the form of molasses. Clearly, 17th century planters weren’t up to snuff on their gingerbread cookie recipes. As a result, they were left with more molasses than they knew what to do with. Turns out, slaves on these Caribbean sugar plantations had a solution for all that sludge: fermentation. Through a bit of tinkering, the result of this process yielded the drink you know and love today—Rum.
Today, the effects of this Caribbean Big Bang have rippled across the Rum galaxy. One of its biggest stars? All of these 3 stars will take you their own part of the universe if not even into a black hole.
But don’t take our word for it. The time has come to taste. We’re counting down to lift-off! In 3…2…1…      

Smartass Corner
1. Rum’s got tropical blood coursing through its veins. Most of it is produced in the tropics because of how easy it is to grow and cultivate sugarcane in that climate. But to be honest, Rum can be distilled anywhere that you can ferment molasses (or sugarcane juice).
2. You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like RonRom and Rhum.
3. The difference between a dark and a light Rum all lies in how it’s aged. Dark Rums get their brown hue from the barrels and casks they’re fermented in. Steel drums are usually used to produce light Rums, hence the absence of color.
4. Technically, NASA astronauts are banned from drinking alcohol in space. In the 1970s, however, they briefly flirted with a “space wine” (a creamed Sherry) for the astronauts aboard the Skylab space station. The U.S. public was so outraged over the thought of astronauts boozin’ it up, NASA decided to ban alcohol indefinitely.
5. The Russians though? They’ve been known to enjoy Cognac on their space travels. Doctors even  recommended Cognac as a remedy to “neutralize the harmful effects of the atmosphere.”
6. In 2011, NASA sponsored an experiment that studied microgravity’s effect on Whisky and the charred oak wood that helps age it. They found that after 1,000 days in space, the Whisky’s tannins were unchanged, but the wood chips imparted a higher concentration of flavor in space than they did on Earth.
7. If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.

An interesting selection. I have a suspicion that the Spytail rum is used for Hercules Mulligan. Big fan of the Centenario, but the Millionario was a miss.
Wasn't sure about trying rum instead of whiskeys but I was more than pleasantly surprised. All are good, but if I were to rank I'd go Ron Millonario, Spytail, Ron Centrino. Very nearly a 10/10 from me.
Mostly great!
Centenario is absolutely stunning, the millonario is good and the spy tail is ok. If I was to have these 3 again, I would finish with the Centenario because if you have it 1st, it definitely leaves the others in the shade.
It is an outstanding sampler of rare rums!
The Ron Millonario 15 year was my favorite, but all 3 are excellent sipping rums. I think the Spytail Black Ginger rum could be a great twist in a cocktail.
This trio is a mix of some perfect sipping runs.
The Ron Centenario 30 year old was our favorite, smooth and leaves an excellent taste
If your into rum..... the ginger one was a waste. The other two were enjoyable.
All 3 are excellent. Really loved the Ron Centenario and Millonario.
Loved it overall, 2 out of the 3 were some of the best rums I’ve ever had and retail for $50 and $130 for full size bottles respectively so those two alone make this worth it given what you’d pay for a shooter of each in a bar. They were both sweet smooth and rich. Now the third one, spytail, was garbage, tasted like captain Morgan cannon blast and was a throwaway.
Interesting box, good for a starter to understand how different rums can be from your usual cuba libre.
A wonderful tour of delicious rums!
Very very good introduction of rum. The ron millonario and ron centenario were very impressive if not a reference point by themselves. They were different in style as well, thus chosen very well. The spytail was nice, but more of a cocktail rum than a tasting experience and a bit of an odity in this tasting box.
Not the biggest fan of sipping rum, but this tasting pack was fantastic! Would get it again!!
Really nice diversity for exploring the beauty of rums.
This is a great tasting set with really interesting rums.
Great tasting... But no bottles to buy:( Love the sweetness of this trio. The Ginger one was definitely interesting. Favorite was the Ron Millonario!
Great tasting rum. Best I’ve had so far
A great mix! We went from sweet, to syrupy, to spicy.
