An exceeding rare rum from Panama. This company takes its name from a famous street in Havana, Cuba, the nation from which the recipe that they use originates.
This is a small batch, 2003 vintage. Malecon is “slow-distilled” from Molasses in Column Stills. What’s most notable about this rum is its extraordinary age. 13 years of maturation in the heat and humidity of Central America is quite some time, and as such, the rum has developed a real depth of flavour.
Drinkers can expect notes of dark chocolate, toasted coconut, treacle tart, vanilla, tropical fruits, nutmeg, a little leather, dark oak, toasted nuts, mixed spice and banana bread.
The rum is bottled at a cask strength of 50.5% ABV, ensuring full intensity and thick mouthfeel.
A cracker, one of the best available from this distillery.
