A very high-strength overproof pot-distilled molasses rum from Mauritius, Tilambic is aged for up to seven years. The 151 represents the strength in US proof, which means that this rum is 75.5% abv and as such should be used extremely carefully and not ingested neat.
Another top-quality Trinidad rum - superb. Double distilled in small copper potstills before 12 years of maturation in oak barriques - a rum of exceptional depth and profundity. Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2008 International Rum Festival.

An aged sugar cane juice rum made in Puerta Vallarta for the ever-so-slightly colourful Martin Grassl. As with all Porfidio products, this comes in a truly eye-catching bottle, handblown glass with a little palm tree inside.
A bottle of Depaz Rhum Agricole Vieux VSOP. Produced using sugar grown at the foot of Mount Pelée on the French-owned island of Martinique. A complex rum that is equally at home being sipped neat as a postprandial drink as in a variety of cocktails.
A single barrel rum produced in the last remaining wooden coffey still in the world at Enmore. One of three single barrel rums in the El Dorado range, each from a different distillery. A complex rum with notes of caramel, vanilla, leather and tobacco.

A rum made in the last remaining operational wooden pot still in the world at Port Morant (spelt by El Dorado as Mourant to avoid confusion with the distillery of the same name in Jamaica). A complex rum with notes of smoke, liquorice, molasses and a hint of peat.
One of three single barrel (and indeed single still) rums in the El Dorado range, this example was made using the traditional techniques of the French Savalle Still at Uitvlugt distillery. An intriguing rum with notes of spice, tobacco and shortbread cookies.
