The soul of rum is that Spanish gold that gradually reached the remotest corners of Patagonia, setting off from Hispaniola on 12th October 1492. This was the start of a tremendous to and fro of missionaries, monks, conquerors, pirates, cadets of all sorts and more besides; bringing passion, a longing for redemption and a desire to succeed, all compelled to leave the old world behind and start anew. We’ve all imagined (or will imagine) at some point, climbing aboard a caravel, a sailing ship or a transatlantic liner to sail west on the ocean waves. Enlivened by this “nuevo” sentiment, we resolved to create a Spanish style blend, with the burning passion of the tales of Don Quixote and the raucousness of Pamplona during the festival. The opulently scented bouquet is dominated by hints of tropical plants and fruits. The first whiff on the nose brings an immediate, powerful punch of molasses. The glass then gradually reveals a powerful body, with good structure propped up by a round, enveloping flavour. The aromatic finish veers towards scents of tobacco, vanilla and liquorice. “Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
