Just like the other rums by this brand from the Dominican Republic, Ron Barceló Imperial Onyx is made from 100% Dominican sugarcane juice rather than molasses. Its Imperial Onyx has aged for 10 years in ex-bourbon barrels with a heavy char. However, there’s an innovative twist that sets this rum apart. After the initial aging period, Ron Barceló Imperial Onyx is filtered through onyx stones to obtain a rum “with intense, deep notes and a unique character.”
The Appleton plantation already existed in 1655, when the British captured Jamaica from the Spaniards. Since 1749, in addition to the cultivation of sugar cane, also rum is manufactured. This rum is a blend of 15 rums, all aged between 5 and 10 years in ex Jack Daniels barrels. After blending the rum is poured into new barrels and ripens a few months so that the different flavors and aromas merge well.
El Dorado Rum is produced at Diamond Distillery, the last surviving rum distillery in Guyana. All El Dorado rums are made using molasses produced by the local sugar factory from 100% Demerara sugar. Diamond Distillery can produce a slew of different rums, which benefits the El Dorado 8-years-old. It is a blend of aged rums from no fewer than four of the traditional stills, including the original wooden Coffey still from Enmore, and the double wooden pot still from Port Mourant.
Founded in 1796, Hacienda Santa Teresa in Venezuela is where it all happens. Sugarcane is cultivated and rum is distilled, aged and bottled. Santa Teresa Claro is made from Venezuelan molasses and has aged for up 2 years in ex-bourbon casks. Finally, it is lightly charcoal filtered, a process which removes some of the color imparted by the casks.
After the establishment of the republic of Panama, José Varela started a cane mill in Pesé in 1908. In 1935 he started making Rum. Abuelo is a recognizable Panamanian Rum in the Spanish style; soft with beautiful sweet influences. The Rum has matured for 12 years according to the Solera principle (the barrels are filled with new Rum every year). The Gran Reserva is fruity with herbs and nuts; a wonderful example of a Panama Rum.
An overproof rum from Ron Colón Salvadoreño, at the heart of this expression sits column-still rum from the Licorera Cihuatan Distillery in El Salvador, a subsidiary of one of the largest and oldest sugar producers in the country. There's also unaged pot-distilled Jamaican rum produced by Worthy Park, Hampden and Monymusk, as well as some age Worthy Park rum too. Tropical, full-bodied and lots of funk.
Plantation Rum is an artisanal range of rums from the great terroirs of the tropics, founded by Alexandre Gabriel. Plantation Original Dark is a rum sourced from Barbados and Jamaica, distilled in both continuous stills and large copper pot stills. While the rum from Barbados has aged for 1 to 3 years, the Jamaican rum has spent 10 to 15 years in wooden casks. After a final period of aging in a wooden vat in France, Plantation Original Dark is born – a rich and intense style representative of the best Jamaica and Barbados have to offer.
Brugal Anejo is an experience, and to sip it will make any day a little more special. Don Andres Brugal Montaner had one dream: to perfect the art of rum-making. That’s how he came to move to the Dominican Republic in 1888. Currently the 5th generation of the Brugal family ensures that the high standards set by their forefather are being met. Brugal Anejo matures in ex-bourbon American oak casks for up to 5 years. The result is a clean, smooth and not-so-sweet spirit that you won’t soon forget.
In 1703, the production of Rum by the Mount Gay distillery on the island of Barbados was already a fact. This probably makes them the oldest working Rum distillery in the world. Traditionally, they still work in the English style with copper pot stills, in which they distil twice. Eclipse is named after the total solar eclipse and the appearance of the comet Halley in 1910. The roasted ex-bourbon casks also have light smoke notes.
The Pampero Distillery was founded in 1938 in Caracas, Venezuela. The rum is distilled from local sugar cane molasses in Column Stills, in the tradition of Spanish style. The Pampero Aniversario was first made in 1963 in honour of the 25th anniversary of the Pampero distillery. The rum has matured in ex-Bourbon barrels. The difference in temperature between the day and the night is big in Venezuela, which gives an optimal ripening.
Flor de Cana (flower of sugar cane) is the most famous rum of Nicaragua. The distillery was opened in 1890 and is located at the foot of the San Cristobal volcano in the northwest. The distillery was set up by the Pellas family. The fifth generation is now in power. Their Rums are made of sugar cane molasses in the Spanish style. The 7-year-old Rum is a Gran Reserva and has matured on ex-Jack Daniels barrels.
Bacardí Reserva Ocho was created in 1862, making it one of the oldest private rum blends in the world. Since then, the Bacardí family has enjoyed it as their personal reserve—for seven generations long. Aged for a minimum of 8 years, this unique golden hued sipping rum is now available globally for everyone to enjoy. It works great neat, but don’t overlook the classic Old Fashioned cocktail—just with a rummy twist.
