Copper and cedar rum distilled from fermented molasses. Aged 25 years in used whisky and bourbon barrels.
The copper and dark cedar color invites you to sip this rum as soon as you pour it from the dark glas bottle.
Distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2006, this is the oldest rum from the Antigua Distillery Limited. Smoky wood is evident in the first breath of the aroma followed by black cherry and currants. The initial taste doesn't disappoint with more dry wood, caramelized dark fruit and roasted cashew in the body.
The finish is dominated by smoky wood balanced with cinnamon and soft nutmeg tones. Though the finish is slightly shorter than that found in some old rums, there is nothing ingenuous in this bottle.
The bottle pictured was bottled for the European market so you'll have to look for this rum as there wasn't a lot of this rum left in the barrels.
Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
There are 9 sugar cane spirits distilled by Antigua Distillery Limited.
