A delectable Panamanian rum from Malecon.
Based on a traditional Cuban recipe, this rum takes its name from a famous street in Havana. It is distilled from molasses in column stills.
A 1996 vintage, aged for 20 years, this is a rum of a rare quality indeed.
The rum opens with notes of sweet, smoked oak and tropical fruits (mangos and bananas especially), soon followed by milk chocolate, leather, vanilla pod, prunes and dried cherries, slight grass, a touch of mint and burnt sage.
20 years is a mighty maturation in the heat and humidity of Central America, and it shows with this rum delivering a dizzingly, luscious complexity.
Bottled at a cask strength of 48.4% ABV, this ensures the drinker enjoys this spirit’s full intensity.
As good a Cuban-style rum as you are likely to encounter.
