I'm the taller one on the right in the black shirt. I will be posting some photos on my site over the weekend along with ones of the Bacardi tour and the Don Q museum, etc. etc. I don't think I can beat Rum Runners story though. It was a great day out. It ended for me at Koco Rum Bar and I had to be up at 3:45am eastern, for my flight back!! It was great to meet Rum Runner and Federico, especially talking rum over breakfast. I don't often get a chance to meet other people who are as passionate about rum as I am. The Barrilito tour was fantastic, like stepping back in time. I could have stayed all day and would have worked for free (or maybe a sip of rum or two). Along with the rum I bought some shirts and hats at about $5 a piece. A must see for any rum lover when you go to Puerto Rico. Thanks Jim and Federico, I will be back!!

Paul. I was taking the photo. Rumelier is on the right, Federico is in the middle, and Don Fernando is on the left.

Ha! Rumelier did get some shots of me in the group he may be posting on his site, and the Bartender at the Bacardi show bar got a pic of the three of us so I'll post that on the Bacardi tour report.

Will do that over the weekend, busy catching up after a few day in PR!! I will try and post the photos first and add some storyline for those you are not members of the MOR.
Update:- I have added some photos of Barrilito today, will add the story and Bacardi tour, etc. over the weekend.

Both tour stories and Don Q are up and running on the Puerto Rico Trip page on my site. They are loading slow right now, but Rumdog 46 has been re-sizing all the photos on my site, so that it loads quicker for everyone. It should be finished in the next few days.

After some extended conversation Don Fernando confirmed that the base rum is bought from Bacardi and that indeed 10 ingredients are used in making the blend that becomes Ron del Barrilito.
What a terrific post and story, thank you very much! The story of rum continues to amaze, amuze and enrapture. And a great job of reportage. One question jumped out for me.

You state the "base rum" is from Bacardi, and that "10 ingredients" are used in the blend. Do you have any idea what the ingredients are? Thanks...

Don Fernando did not offer what the ingredients are. Out of respect and courtesy to our host we did not presume to ask. A web search will reveal some citing honey, dried fruits, and local nuts. I cannot confirm any of those additives.

The one thing I can confirm is that the ingredients added are very small in percentage. And the end effect of tasting Ron del Barrilito Two Star and Three Star shows a wonderfully crafted aged rum.
