A real Richard Seale rum from 2006, made exclusively from molasses. The rum was provided with a fine complexity during the years of maturation in Barbados, partly due to the influence of the Bourbon barrels used.
In 2022 we loaded this rum into an Oloroso barrel on board the Tres Hombres and sailed to Amsterdam to let the sea add even more character.
Now this extraordinary rum is released as a real Tres Hombres Captain's Choice at full cask strength!
What is Captain's Choice?
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
Pot distilled from molasses at the Foursquare distillery in Barbados, this rum rested in bourbon barrels before finally being deemed worthy to be transported in its hold by Tres Hombres in January 2022.
When the ship anchored in Bridgetown it was decided to select this 2006 vintage rum that seems much older than you might think when you look at the label.
At Foursquare the rum was transferred from bourbon barrels to an old Oloroso barrel and then loaded aboard the Tres Hombres. This age-old tradition has been revived for over ten years now.
Four months of sailing through the Caribbean and back to Amsterdam have given this excellent rum a distinctive “Tres Hombres” worthy finish. Natural fermentation with Caribbean yeast.
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.
This Captain's Choice selection was bottled entirely by Stokerij Amsterdam with the help of the Tres Hombres team.
