What You Can Expect
Jump right into your first premium rum, Ron Del Barrilito, which comes from one of the oldest rum-producing companies in Puerto Rico. As you sip the rum, listen to your bartender’s explanation of its origins, how long it ages, what flavors go into it and what distinguishes it from other premium rums.
Then do the same with your next three tastings, trying to determine what’s different about each. Sip on Bacardi 8 (mega-producer Bacardi’s once-private label, aged for at least eight years), Trigo Reserva Añeja (aged for at least 12 years) and Don Q Gran Añejo (an award-winning high-end rum from one of Puerto Rico’s largest rum companies).
Finish your tasting with small trio of tapas.
This tour was amazing!
This rum tasting was awesome. The host was congenital, knowedgeable , and informitive. The rooms we were seated in were filled with historical pictures and the building spoke of past eras. It was the highlight of our San Juan.
The rum tasting tour was amazing!!! My guide was Genesis she was so great and knowledgeable!!! This was the greatest part of my trip!!!!
Was wonderful! If you're in the area and what to do something. I would say this.
Very informative guide with excellent personality.
Very nice location.
The rums tasted were all from Puerto Rico which I was pleased to see, taste and learn about. The food was also very good.
Highly recommend this event.
I thought it was a good value for the price too.
What a fabulous trip! The Mezzanine was very easy to find. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained everything so well. We LOVED the rums we tried. And the tapas we so tasty. Our guide, 'sas" was extremely helpful. It was nice to compare the different rums and hear the differences between them. Would highly recommend taking this tour!
Awesome tasting. The guide was extremely knowledgable and provided a weath of history of PR in general!
Make sure to eat before this tasting tour.
This was a great short tour for our group of nine people. It occurred at a designated bar in Old San Juan and our host provided many laughs as we learned about the history of 4 top-shelf tasting rums and Puerto Rican culture. We did an early afternoon tour and it lasted for 1 hour. Fortunately for us, this tour occurred on the only day that it rained for a long period of time during our 4-night stay in San Juan. With being an indoor event, it provided us a welcomed break from the rain. When our tour ended, the sky had cleared up and we were able to enjoy walking around and shopping in Old San Juan. Be sure to book this tour 1-2 months ahead of time if you want to do the rum tasting tour at night. The early afternoon tour worked out for us, despite mother nature's weather plan for the day.
We loved this rum tasting so much! The host was super nice and funny. We the hotel is super cool and it has the only rooftop bar in OSJ. We learned alot and learned how to appreciate rum. We even bought some at the duty free shop and sip on these at home. This was something we added to our trip last minute. And it was a great choice! Also the food was super delicious!!!! I highly recommend the tour. :)
Our guide was very informative. I thought we would be having the tapas in between the rums and instead they came all at the end. Would have liked it better the other way.
