This rum is a distinct blend of pot and column distilled rums from four ports across the Caribbean. The rums include: a Barbadian 8-year-old, a Jamaican 4-year-old, a Nicaraguan 5-8-year-old, and a Panamanian 6-year-old. It finishes for months in freshly-emptied casks of ruby port from Portugal’s Douro Valley before being bottled at 40% ABV.

  • 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

"Appealing mix of sweet vanilla, toasted nuts, beach fire and Port richness. Lean and a bit spare on the palate after the opening promise, it finishes the same with the tang of old leather and pot still funk."
