The flavor profile of these rums have such a special aromatic and spice-laden quality that it actually takes you back for a minute. ,For ageing, the barrels come from the Chivas Brothers distillery. They may be oak of Spanish or American origin, and French Limousin oak is used for some of the aged rums. The multiplicity of barrel origins adds complexity to the resulting rums. The barrels for the white rums are washed with water laden with citrus fruits, neutralizing the stronger flavors of the scotch whisky previously aged in the barrels. This imparts subsequent citrus aromas and acidity to the white rums.
