  2. Mount Gay 1703 Master Select

    Proof86 (43% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Mount Gay Distillery is located in Barbados. The brand dates all the way back to 1703 and is said to be one of the oldest rum houses in the world. The Distillery, initially named Mount Gilboa, was renamed at the turn of the 19th century, adopting distillery manager Sir John Gay Alleyne’s namesake.

    Today the distillery produces high-quality rum using the best ingredients, which includes coral-filtered water, a combination of naturally-occurring yeast and their proprietary strain. They employ a combination of pot and column stills, blending together the intense aromas and flavors of the first with the smoothness of the second. Over the past 4 decades they have had 4 Master Blenders, the current one being Trudiann Branker. The spirit matures in American Whiskey, Bourbon, and Cognac oak casks, with others being brought in for various special editions. Mount Gay is home to the largest stock of aged rum in Barbados.

    The 1703 Master Select expression is a limited annual release and a blend of their finest liquids. Each year the Master Blender marks the very best casks which are then used in this rich, elegant, and sophisticated rum. A combination of copper pot and column still rums that have been aged between 10 and 30 years in American oak, it embodies the best the Bajan Distillery has to offer.

    Situated in northern Venezuela, Hacienda Santa Teresa (hacienda is Spanish for plantation) was founded in 1796 by the Count of Trover, and was originally devoted exclusively to the production of sugarcane. At the time, most of the sugarcane consumed in Venezuela was imported from the Dominican Republic, despite the fact that Venezuela's tropical climate and generous rainfall made it ideally suited for the cultivation of fresh, raw cane. Today, over two centuries later, the estate harvests nearly 45,000 tons of sugar cane each year.

    Santa Teresa 1796 Rum is made from fresh, ripe sugarcane harvested exclusively from Hacienda Santa Teresa. After the sweetest sugarcane growing on the estate is harvested by hand, it is crushed and the remaining molasses is fermented with a proprietary strain of yeast. Following fermentation, a portion of the wash is distilled through column stills, while the remainder is distilled through pot stills. The wash distilled through the column stills produces a rum that is light in flavor and body, while the copper pot stills produce a rum that is more intense and robust.

    Once the rum has been distilled, it is matured through a solera composed of French Limousin oak casks. Solera aging is a process that has generally been reserved for cognacs, ports and sherries. It involves filling a series of casks at different intervals over a long period of time. As rum from the oldest cask is emptied and bottled, the cask is re-filled with an equivalent amount of rum from the second-oldest cask in the solera. This cascading effect continues until the youngest cask in the solera is filled with new rum. As a result, no cask in the solera is ever fully emptied. In addition, as the younger rum cascades through the solera, its average age and complexity gradually increases over time.

    Santa Teresa 1796 Solera Rum is made from a blend of rums that have been solera-aged and are up to 35 years old. The rum has an aroma of sweet caramel and creamy vanilla, with touches of toffee, cherries and raisins. The aroma opens up to notes of dried fruits (particularly oranges), molasses and berries on the palate, which fade into hints of toffee, chocolate and cinnamon. The finish, which is long and layered, has notes of dark chocolate and caramel.

    The rum earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2012, and earned a score of 96-100 points from Wine Enthusiast.

  4. Balcones Texas Rum

    Proof127.8 (63.9% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Handcrafted in small batches, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is made from 100% malted Golden Promise barley. Golden Promise is an early-maturing spring barley that has a depth of flavor ideal for single malts. While it was popular in Scotland for many years, it gave way to cheaper barely that was higher in yield but lower in quality.

    After mashing the malted barley, they slowly ferment it at cool temperatures for seven days. Their fermentation process, which takes nearly twice as long as most other distilleries and is done at much lower temperatures, ultimately produces a richer, smoother whisky. After distillation, they age the whisky using a unique barreling process. "The main difference between Balcones and other single malts," they explain, "is the barreling. The cooperage we use and the care we put into blending and reblending the casks defines a lot of what makes our malt what it is. All of the barrels used are bespoke casks made from fully yard-aged oak with custom toast and char profiles."

    While most single malts age in a single, large cask of a certain variety their entire lives (for Scotch, this is typically a used bourbon cask), they blend and rebarrel each cuvée of Balcones Texas Single Malt through several barrels of different sizes and oak profiles in order to create uniquely round and complex flavors. While a batch of Balcones Single Malt may begin aging in toasted American oak barrels, it may also age in French oak and European oak barrels before being bottled by hand.

    Round and full of flavor, this rum is double distilled in hand-built copper pot stills from the finest molasses available. The result of their unique cooperage program (consisting of a variety of oak species and multiple toast profiles) is a bold and robust rum with rich deep fruit flavors, and smooth, warm notes of vanilla and caramel. A rum for both the rum purist and the committed whisky drinker.

    Bacardi Limited is the largest privately held, family-owned spirits company in the world. They are renowned for their eponymous Bacardi white rum, but their portfolio has an extensive 200 labels. Founded in 1862, Bacardi has been family-owned for seven generations. Bacardi is currently sold in more than 150 countries. Headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda, Bacardi is led by the founder's great-great grandson, Facundo L. Bacardí.

    The Bacardi family is the lifeblood of Bacardi Rum. They first began producing Rum in Cuba in 1862. The subsequent years that followed brought a revolution to wild Havana nights during the American Prohibition. Emilio Bacardí Moreau refused to support the Spanish government, fighting staunchly for the independence of Cuba, and was consequently exiled for his beliefs. When he later returned to Cuba, he became the first freely-elected mayor of Santiago de Cuba. Cuba in the 1960s was undergoing a revolution, which eventually led to the Bacardi family’s exodus out of Cuba. The members of the family moved to the United States and shifted their distillery to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.

    Often depicted in red, a color of joy, bats represent "good fortune" in traditional Chinese culture. This is the Bacardi symbol, and it is a reflection of their prosperity. Eventually, they began to rebuild the empire that they had left behind in their Cuban homeland. Bacardi is now in their seventh generation, and they are in constant pursuit of perfection in the art of rum-making.

    Bacardi Gran Reserva Diez from their Premium Range was meticulously blended and aged for at least 10 years in charred oak barrels under the scorching Caribbean sun. The dark gold rum is charcoal-filtered and bottled at 80 proof. It's as smooth as it is luxurious, extra smooth and full-bodied with prominent caramel, candied fruit, vanilla, and oak notes. There are plenty of tropical fruit notes on the palate, including banana, kiwi, as well as pear.

    In 1824, Dr. Johann Siegart, a German doctor serving as Surgeon-General of Simon Bolivar's army in Venezuela, was working to find a medicine that would enhance the appetite and digestive well-being of his soldiers. Dr. Siegart eventually settled upon a mix of herbs and spices that he called "Amargo Aromatico" — today, this world-famous concoction is known simply as Angostura Bitters.

    Building on his early success, Dr. Siegert established the House of Angostura in the eponymous Venezuelan city, where he began to manufacture his bitters on a grander scale (the business would later become the sole purveyor of bitters to the King of Prussia, Spain, and King George V). As he continued to expand, Dr. Siegart, along with his younger brother and his son, moved the House of Angostura to Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1876 and began producing rum. Today they are one of the leading rum producers in the Caribbean, offering a wide range of the famous spirit.

    Butterflies have long been associated with Angostura’s rums. The House of Angostura is actually home to the Barcant Collection of more than 5,000 butterflies. Their butterfly logo is also said to represent the phenomenon when swarms of butterflies gather around ripened sugar cane plants when the cane is ready to be harvested. The House of Angostura is open about the value that they place on nature, and the tropical environment in the Caribbean community in which their award-winning brand is headquartered.

    The No. 1 Oloroso Sherry from their limited-edition Cask Collection series is a blend of colum-still rums aged up to 22 years and the very first Angostura rum to be matured in sherry casks. After its initial maturation in American oak, it goes into oloroso sherry casks for an additional 9 months, resulting in a smooth and complex spirit with dried fruit notes. "Angostura® Cask Collection No. 1 Oloroso Sherry is a masterwork, a one-of-a-kind rum that reaches the highest achievement in the rum world – an exquisite roundness and smoothness without sacrificing personality," said Angostura CEO Genevieve Jodhan of this release.

  8. Cihuatán Sahumerio Limited Edition Rum

    Proof90.4 (45.2% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Ron Cihuatán’s story dates all the way back to the ancient Mayan city of Cihuatán. According to legend, a Goddess bestowed Cihuatán with riches and fertility. Her spirit still watches over the sugarcane fields, remaining in the shape of the Guazapa Mountain. This Salvadorean rum is named after this legend ― the Nahuat word "Cihuatán" translates to "the land beside the sleeping woman". It's the local culture, legends, gods, and spirits, that served as the main inspiration for El Salvador's first rum distillery.

    The spirit is produced by Licorera Cihuatán, a subsidiary of Ingenio La Cabaña of El Salvador. This rum is made using a 100-year-old sugar cane mill. The Licorera Cihuatán craft distillery was established in 2004 and began distilling and aging their rums. After fermentation, the rum is mostly aged in used American oak bourbon barrels. The team has complete control over the process, starting with the sugar cane seeds, overseeing distilling, aging, blending, and bottling with Master Blender Gabriela Ayala channeling her passion into each bottle of the finished product.

    With the Mayan legends serving as inspiration, each of their rums pays tribute to a different god or spirit. The Sahumerio is a limited-edition blend of 4 rums that have spent between 12 and 14 years in ex-Bourbon casks. It's the blend itself that is directly connected to spirituality ― each of the aromas is meant to invoke the smells of the Sahumerio ritual. The ritual involves burning treats in order for the Mayan goddess Chantico to grant the home with love, unity, friendship, and protection. Bottled at 90.4 proof and numbered by hand, it's a rich and complex sipping rum.

  9. Holmes Cay Jamaica Wedderburn 2011 Single Cask Rum

    Size750mL
    Holmes Cay is an independent bottling company from New York City. Founded by New Yorker rum aficionado Eric Kaye in 2019, they focus on finding the very best rums and bottling them at cask strength. Kaye used to work as a producer and music composer for film, TV, and commercials, but has also been an avid diver for decades. His favorite pastime brought him into contact with fantastic rare Caribbean rums. He felt he needed to share these with his fellow Americans, which is how Holmes Cay came to be.

    Passionately standing behind the tradition and supporting producers of traditional, unadulterated rums, Holmes Cay age statements are real and their unmistakable taste is created with aging alone without any sugar, color or flavorings. Kaye hopes to bring incredible as-of-yet-unknown rums to the US, introducing spirit-lovers to the best-kept secrets of the rum world. Their very first release ― Holmes Cay Barbados 2005 ― fittingly comes from the legendary Foursquare Distillery in Barbados.

    To honor Wedderburn, a classic Jamaican Rum style, Eric Kaye and his team created Holmes Cay Single Cask Rum Jamaica Wedderburn. This 100% pot still rum was distilled in 2011 at the Clarendon Distillery, Jamaica, and bottled in 2021 in New York State. First tropically aged for 3 years in ex-bourbon casks in Jamaica and then for 7 additional years in the UK, it was bottled at cask strength or 118 proof. This outstanding expression is not chill filtered and founder Eric Kaye said that "it is a pleasure to offer this superior example of a medium ester, pot still rum to US spirits lovers. Its characteristic flavors ― created through lengthy open tank fermentation of molasses with natural yeasts ― are approachable and harmonious. Despite the intensity of the tropical fruit, tobacco and oak flavors, a balance is created."
