Copacabana 1940 Rum Añejo
Copacabana Rums // Panama
Panama’s PILSA and its Master Distiller, “Don Pancho” Fernandez, have built a considerable reputation supplying well-executed, Cuban-style rums to independent labels such as Caña Brava and Ron de Jeremy. Add New York’s Barrio Spirits to that list; they also source their seven-year, column-distilled, Copacabana 1940 rum from PILSA.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"The nose of the 1940 is subtle--a bit of fruit and nail polish. Sipping it reveals a light, ethereal body with stone fruit and pineapple. It’s a dry rum in the Spanish style, with a moderate amount of astringency, but not as much in the way of oak or vanilla compared to other PILSA rums. The finish has pepper and a flash of eucalyptus. While the name and bottle imagery might make you initially dismiss it, there’s quality rum within. This is a decent sipper for fans of dry, Panamanian rums, but it works best in cocktails. "
