SelvaRey Cacao Rum
Selvarey // Panama
SelvaRey (translated from Spanish "king of the jungle," hence the gorilla on the label) is created by former Havana Club master blender and ex-Cuban Minister of Rum Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez. The rum is a selection of 5 year old rums from copper column-stills, aged in ex-bourbon casks with an infusion of locally sourced chocolate instead of cocoa-flavored syrup.
Flavored RumRum that has been flavored, either naturally or artificially, with the predominant flavor(s) stated on the label.
"Most flavored rums tend to be cloyingly sweet and overbearing, but this one is well-balanced. True flavors of dark and malty chocolate fan out elegantly while allowing the rum-ness of the spirit to do its thing. It's a rare exception of a flavored rum one could sip neat, although it would make a fine addition to cocktails calling for chocolate flavors, or even a winter toddy."
