Volbeat have announced the release of “Volbeat Rum III.” The band previously released two other limited batches of rum, but this one is expected to be more widely available.
The following was said about the drink on volbeatrum.com:
“A hand-selected, premium blend sourced in The Dominican Republic, Guyana, Jamaica, Barbados, Guatemala, and Trinidad. Dark, complex and aged up to 15 years, it exhibits flavour notes of exotic dried fruits, caramel and wood.”
Frontman Michael Poulsen also commented:
“You will never taste anything like it.
If you learn how to mix it right, and do it right, it is something you can drink easily.
When you are a youngster, you can’t afford to buy good liquor. You start with crappy beers and just want to get buzzed. As you get older, you discover better beers. We had our own beer for a short while and went through a process to find the right taste. Later on, I got into whiskey. You start with a standard whiskey and think it’s the best thing in the world until you discover the higher quality stuff.
The good thing about rum is that it’s not always about the price. You can make a quality product at a decent price. It’s about how you blend it and the process.”
