Hi, it’s Robert Burr and welcome to the Rum Wreck Dive Bar for another episode of Rum Minute. Today, we’re looking at Yolo Gold 10 year old aged rum. Produced in Panama by master of rum Don “Pancho” Fernandez, Yolo Gold aged rum rests for ten years in charred bourbon barrels, developing a complexity of flavor and a deep mahogany color. With a lifetime of experience in brand development, Philip Guerin and his wife Jessica assimilated their talents, their passion and love for quality rum into their Colorado-based Yolo brand. This dark amber aged rum offers aromas of charred wood and toffee before a hint of burnt sugar balanced by a vegetal sweetness over cigar box. On the palate, cinnamon brûlée leads then fades to reveal a cognac-like wet wood into the long dry vanilla finish, well balanced between sweet and dry, offering a subtle hint of raw cocoa in the aftertaste. Yolo Gold aged rum is the winner of numerous medals, including a Gold Award at the International Rum Tasting Panel Tasting Competition in 2015. The 750ml bottle sells for $44.95.
