Tiburon double aged rum from Belize

See also

A double barreled aged rum from the Central American country of Belize, Tiburon is a small batch hand crafted spirit made from molasses at an old family owned distillery near the shores of the Caribbean Sea.

After initial time resting in American Oak whiskey barrels, the rum is re-casked by master blenders into Kentucky Oak Bourbon barrels for the second maturation to allow the natural tannins to give the rum a rich golden color.

Tiburon double aged rum was developed by Basil DeStefano in his quest to bring the finest aged rum from Traveller's Liquors of Belize to the United States. The extra attention to detail in the aging process delivers subtle hints of vanilla and salty caramel with ripe banana, butterscotch and toasted oak, followed by a semi-dry smooth finish.

The spanish word for shark, Tiburón evokes a sense of the majestic, untamed tropical spirit of Belize, known for its outstanding coral reefs, blue holes and pristine beaches.

The bottle includes a shark tooth around the neck and an image of the shark placed dominantly on the label. The 750ml bottle carries a suggested retail price of $34.99.
