Ruby Port Cask Finished Rum

80 Proof, 40% ABV

The first in a series of cask-finished products, this Ruby Port Cask Finished Rum offers an intriguingly delicious re-interpretation of Virago’s flagship Four-Port Rum. Having spent months in freshly-emptied casks of ruby port from Portugal’s Douro Valley, this spirit exudes an earthy depth, featuring layered notes of campfire, brown sugar, black cherry, pipe tobacco, and leather with a finishing hint of candied almond. Virago Spirits’ Ruby Port Cask Finished Rum is a distinct blend of pot and column-distilled rums, aged up to eight years, from four ‘ports’ across the Caribbean: Barbados, Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Panama. Platinum medal winner for Best of Show in the 2018 World Beverage Competition, and the gold medal winner in the 2019 Judging of Craft Spirits, American Distilling Institute (ADI).
