Drawing on the Netherlands long history of sourcing and blending rum, Denizen is looking to bring a more classic sensibility to your rum cocktails. Merchant’s Reserve combines Rhum Grand Arome from Martinique and rums from four different Jamaican distilleries: Clarendon, Hampden, New Yarmouth, and Worthy Park. 60% of the rum has been aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon barrels.

  • Aged Rum
    Rum 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".

Tasting Notes

"At the risk of not being considered a “crowd pleaser”, Merchant's Reserve pulls no punches. Pronounced notes of petrol, iodine, cinnamon, pear, and a hint of grass and fresh herbs. The taste is equally earthy and intense with flavors like leather, tobacco, sweet potato, and smoke. There is nothing boring or mediocre about this rum, it is a must have for top quality cocktails."
