    Re: Is There an Anejo Rum Style?

    I think the choice to use the word "anejo" mostly has to do with whether or not the producing country is Spanish-speaking. Appleton V/X, for example, is classified by BarMedia as an anejo rum, but Appleton--from English-speaking Jamaica--doesn't use that term on the label.

    As with Tequilas, the term seems to be applied to the older aged spirits, more than 8 years.

    Style differences in rums seem most apparent when you sample the different language groups, i.e., Spanish, French and English.

    So, if the question is, is there among long-aged rums a specific style that uses the term anejo, I have to say the answer is no. BarMedia, for example, uses the term generically to apply to any long-aged and, therefore, snifter-worthy rums, regardless of whether or not the word "anejo" appears on the label.

    Re: Is There an Anejo Rum Style?

    Frodo kindly gave me some samples of malt whisky and rum plus a bottle of Alberta Springs 25 year old Canadian whisky. (I will deliver the superannuated Alberta Springs to Tim Sousley in Chicago together with a bottle of the fine, Maryland rye-like Three Grain from Kittling Ridge).

    The rum is a Brugal Extra Viejo (extra old) which possibly is in the anejo style even if not so-labelled. He said no age statement is on the bottle. This is rum from Dominican Republic. A version of Brugal is available here but the EV was sourced outside Canada.

    I find it very good indeed. It is, first, rainwater soft, a trait I much admire in any distilled drink. Second, it has a fine flavor, well-aged with oak wood in evidence but with the rum esters still showing through. Dry and elegant, a rum to ponder and linger over.

    This is for the setting sun or later in the evening when a coolness pervades the air.

    Thanks again Frodo for this, I'll review over the next little while the other samples you gave me.

    Re: Is There an Anejo Rum Style?

    For a tequila to be considered an anejo is must be aged for at least one year. Many anejo tequilas today are aged 3+ years. It seems there is also an extra aged category emerging of 5+ years as well, although its not an official term...yet.
