Pot- and column still distillates are the base of our smooth and dry rum from Barbados molasses. A bold selection of barrels such as PALO CORTADO, RUBY PORT, PX and MOSCATEL finished this 8-year-old Bajan rum at sea.
Four months of sailing through the Caribbean and back to Amsterdam has given this excellent rum a distinct Tres Hombres finish. Natural fermentation with Caribbean yeast.
Each bottle is lavishly decorated with motives from the Tres Hombres and its travels. The design with the small handle is reminiscent of old, maritime times. Closed with a natural cork and sealed with beeswax. Each variety has its own colour. To achieve this, the wax is mixed with colour pigments that are ground from natural raw materials in a traditional windmill in Zaandam.
As soon as the cork is opened, the aroma flows into the room. The rum flows mahogany-coloured into the glass and lets the time run down inside the glass.
The nose is spicy, oak is easily recognizable, and salty caramel. After a minute or two, you can see the light coconut tone that is so typical of Barbados rum, plus some chocolate and spicy tones.
By the way, the chocolate from Tres Hombres with 75% cocoa is a great companion for this rum.
This time the Tres Hombres team bottled all bottles themselves by hand.
