This special edition from Dominican producer Brugal has been double-distilled and matured in American oak before a second maturation period in sherry casks to add a dose of dried fruit and leathery sweetness to the flavours.
A magnificent Venezuelan rum aged in a solera system, Santa Teresa 1796 has established itself in top bars as one of the best South American rums in the world. A deserving winner of a Gold Medal and 'Best In Category' at the International Cane Spirits Festival 2007.
A fabulous Venezuelan dark golden rum, distilled from molasses in a copper potstill before 12 years of ageing. Rich, sweet and fruity, just how we like 'em. Fantastic quality for the money. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is one of the most awarded rums with more than 20 awards to its name.
An interestingly matured rum from Murray McDavid's Renegade series, bottled as usual at the Bruichladdich distillery. A 2001 vintage Diamond rum from Guyana, selected by Jim McEwan, matured first in bourbon casks and then 'enhanced' in Ribero del Duero Tempranillo wine casks before bottling in 2012.
A recent bottling from a historic brand, the original of which is based on the recipe for the official rum that was given as a tot to sailors in the British Navy. Pusser's is traditionally dark and strong, however this version is a more standard 40% abv. A bargain for a rum of this age and provenance.
A blend of rums from five distilleries, each aged between three and twelve years then filtered to remove the colour. The rums are from Trinidad, Jamaica, Barbados and Guyana, with the intriguing addition of some Batavia Arrack from Java. As you'd expect, this is a big, characterful rum that sits well in a posh daiquiri.
