Mocambo 20 Year Rum
Mocambo // Mexico
This rum is distilled in Mexico at Licores Veracruz, S.A. de C.V. It is made using a combination of continuous column-still and pot-stills to create their rums from molasses and sugarcane juice. After distillation the rum is aged in European white oak barrels. The rum bottle is presented in a bottle wrapped in amate tree fibers. This is called the "Art edition" because each bottle is a work of art created by artist Master Victor Fernandez. He uses Amate Tree fibers to create the design wrapped around the bottle. Each bottle is individually numbered and unique. The rum in the bottle has a dark chocolate with rusty amber highlights. In the glass the colors lighten to a mahogany with amber highlights. Agitating the liquid created a thick band around the glass and slowly releases legs that crawl down the side of the glass.
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 aroma delivers notes of burnt caramel, sugared figs, toasted tobacco leaf, roasted coconut, and Madagascar Vanilla. The rum enters with notes of spicy oak immediately followed by a rush of caramelized dried fruit. As the rum is imbibed these flavors become better defined as the dried fruit manifest as figs, raisins, and prunes. The aged oak tannins manifest as roasted tobacco, old leather, and coffee. All of this settles into a long dry finish."
