ARÔME Press and Articles
“As the name suggests, the blend is powerfully aromatic, exuding not merely scents of banana, toffee, and nutmeg, but also traces of old leather, coffee, and black walnut. Yet the smooth texture, which coats the palate in silky warmth, sets this pour apart.”
Authenticity is hard to come by, nowadays. However, it is an exciting, orthodox, old school authenticity that Andrew Troyer is bringing to the spirits world, and it is being undertaken with a level of panache and style hitherto missing from the rum shelves."
- Benjamin Mitrofan-Norris, Old Liquors Magazine
"With the guidance of a renowned Cuban rum master, Troyer created ARÔME 28 from a reserve of aged Panamanian rum. (The “28” in the name signifies 28 years.) It’s matured in uncharred oak barrels previously used for bourbon. Troyer additionally designed the bottle and label to complement the idea of a gentleman’s sipping rum."

"In January 2017 ARÔME Spirits Corp donated one of the first twelve bottles produced and offered a private tasting event at the Naples Winter Wine Festival, raising money for the Children of Collier County. In addition to this, ARÔME participated in After School All Star's Miami event raising money to fund after-school-programs which help children succeed in school and life. It doesn’t stop there, they also donated the first ARÔME Voyageur Case to help raise money for the Florida Children’s Hospital."

ARÔME 28 exhibits a dark mahogany color revealing a mature oak-aged rum. The bouquet of old wood precedes rich aromas of toasted wood, tanned leather, dry tobacco, caramel, nutmeg, and walnut. ARÔME 28 delivers flavors of caramel, and oaken vanilla on a medium-weight body before finishing off dry with great depth of flavor. The flavors hold up well over ice, only slightly subdued. ARÔME 28 is pure seduction – an ultimate Panamanian rum."
