A break-through golden Rum from Tanduay aged seven years in ex-Bourbon casks.

The original distillery that would become Tanduay was founded in Hagonoy, Philippines, in 1854. Let’s just say that record-keeping in the Philippines was problematic at the time. But we do know that there was a series of mergers and acquisitions and primary distillation was moved to Manila in the early 1900s and the grandchildren of the original known managers reacquired the distillery and brand through their Elizalde & Company, Inc. The business continued to flourish, becoming a beloved producer of Rums and other Spirits in the Philippines. The mammoth LT Group purchased the entire operation in 1988, which still produces some of the most popular Spirits in Southeast Asia. 

Tanduay Asian Rum Gold was the second of two Rums designed to break into the US market. And it’s a well-designed effort indeed.

Tanduay Asian Rum Gold is a blend of top-shelf Asian Rums that have been aged in refill ex-Bourbon casks for up to seven years. It’s silky-smooth and a bit sweet with plenty of flavors — from almonds and vanilla to exotic spices. And the quality has been recognized internationally with a dozen international awards.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma opens with turbinado and then blooms into a melange of exotic spices, vanilla, and orange zest.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It has a nice viscosity and full body over notes of mixed woods — oak, sandalwood, cedar — and butterscotch with coconut milk, plantains, dried apricot, and molasses.

Finish
The finish lingers with a long butterscotch note.

Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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.
