A relatively recent variant for Zacapa, this is slightly lighter in style than the famed Solera 23, and a fantastic rum in its own right. Winner of a Gold Medal at the International Cane Spirits Festival 2008.
Not to be confused with Zacapa Centenario, this Fundacion 20yo is made by Centenario Internacional, who hail from Costa Rica. Sweet and easy-sipping, this is a rum of complexity and depth, and is packaged in a rather fancy leather jacket.
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.
The "Pistol" bottle and blend are similar in flavor to the Planters Gold - Pyrat XO Reserve. It is slightly lighter in body and very drinkable. A blend of Caribbean rums assembled by the Anguilla Rums Ltd, this is a sister brand to Patron tequila.
R. St Barth Chic Rum is an agricole rum from the island of St. Barths in the Caribbean. Aged for 4 years in re-charred ex-bourbon barrels before being bottled at 40%, this would make a sweeter 'Ti Punch.
Matusalem 23 Gran Reserva Rum is aged in a traditional solera system. Produced in Dominican Republic, the company's history goes back to 1872. A rich and toasty rum that's perfect for sipping by the fire on a cold evening.
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.
