Virago Ruby Port Cask Finished Rum
An intriguingly delicious re-interpretation of the flagship Four-Port Rum. This delicious spirit spends months in freshly-emptied casks of ruby port from the Duoro Valley in Portugal.
Enjoy an earthy depth from the charred ruby port casks: layered notes of campfire, brown sugar, black cherry, pipe tobacco, and leather with a finishing hint of candied almond.
This exceptional spirit was named London Spirits Competition's 2019 Rum of the Year.
750ml & 80 Proof
Experience Ruby Port Cask Finished Rum
On the nose, fig dried plum, and black cherry. The taste of brown sugar, toasted marshmallow, campfire, pipe tobacco and leather and that Jamaican funk. A lingering, candied almond finish.
Drink on a little bit of ice. Or sip neat with a cigar.

Virago Ruby Port Cask Finished Rum Production Notes
This starts with the flagship Four Port Rum from Virago, which is a blend of four different Caribbean rums, all of different styles and flavors:
Barbados, aged 8 years, pot and column distilled
Jamaica, aged 4 years, pot distilled
Nicaragua, aged 5-8 years, column distilled
Panama, aged 6 years, column distilled
That liquid then spends months in charred, freshly-emptied casks of ruby port from Portugal, which provide wonderful smoky nuance and complexity to the flagship rum.
