Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 53

Captain's Choice La Isla Bonita Vintage 2002 57.2% vol. 100cl

Op voorraad

After more than 20 years of aging on the volcano, this rum experienced an eruption just before our good ship arrived in the port of Santa Cruz de La Palma. 

Only nature and the skills of rum maker José have influenced this spirit. It was distilled on a wood fire from locally made Guarapo, and later matured in Spanish oak barrels. The rum then matured for another year in Pineau des Charentes and Sherry Oloroso barrels. 

What does Captain's Choice mean?

Captain's Choice is a special limited edition. So there is only a limited number of bottles. It is literally the best rum as only the captain can choose. The difference with the non-Captain's Choice bottles is of course not only in the fact that this rum is still at cask strength and has not been drained. Of course, the captain doesn't tell all the secrets either...!

Origin and distillation

20 years after maturation, this characterful and strong rum finally left the island in Pineau des Charentes and Sherry Oloroso barrels. 

The sugar cane is grown on Aldea's own fields. It is grown without the addition of fertilizers or pesticides. After distillation, the rum matured for 20 years in ex-Bourbon and Spanish oak barrels before receiving a second maturation in the cargo hold of the Tres Hombres.

Because the ship is constantly in motion, contact with the wood is intensified again. The Pineau des Charentes and Sherry Oloroso casks infused the spirit during the time on board for a memorable finish. 

Design 

The design of this special bottle was made by one of the crew members. The beautiful drawing represents the work of the figurehead of the Tres Hombres.

Bottling

The rum of this Captain's Choice selection was bottled entirely by Stokerij Amsterdam with the help of the Tres Hombres team.

The story

 

The life of the brigantine Tres Hombres began in 1943. At the time still without masts and in a wreck-like condition, she was discovered in 2007 by three friends in Delft, the Netherlands. With an incredible amount of diligence and dedication from many volunteers, she was brought back to life. Within just over 2 years we managed to completely restore the ship and convert it into a sailing ship that now crosses the Atlantic Ocean every year, sails the Northern European seas and covers these long transport distances exclusively with the power of the wind. 

 

Route

From Amsterdam to La Palma and back via the Caribbean and the Azores

Map route Tres Hombres

The rum of this Captain's Choice edition was collected in La Palma during the winter trip. The first crew boards in Den Helder on a ship that is in tip-top condition after the refit has been completed. Trainees, and sometimes crew, rotate occasionally during various stops, where cargo and food supplies are also loaded.

Loading/Discharging ports:

  • Douarnenez, France 
  • Baiona, Spain
  • Santa Cruz de la Palma, La Palma
  • Fort-de-France, Martinique
  • Grand-Bourg, Marie-Galante
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Boca Chica, Dominican Republic
  • Horta, Azores

 

Previously used barrels are loaded in Douarnenez and Baiona and later filled with rum from La Palma and the Caribbean islands. These barrels provide an extra special taste that makes the Tres Hombres Rum unique. The rum of this Captain's Choice edition 53 is matured at sea in Pineau des Charentes and Sherry Oloroso barrels. 

In Santa Cruz de la Palma, Fort-de-France, Marie-Galante, Bridgetown and Boca Chica the barrels are filled with different types of rum. Other products are also loaded on some islands, such as coffee beans and cocoa beans in the Dominican Republic.

Food supplies are stocked during the stopover in Horta on the Azores. Every now and then tea and tuna are also loaded there.
