La Palma Puro bio, the youngest of Tres Hombres Rum family
This rum was distilled by family-owned business Destilerias Aldea (1936), they stand for the unquestionable symbols of quality, craftsmanship & tradition.
The main ingredient of this rum is organic sugar cane. This grows on the windy hills at the northeast side of La Palma, La Isla Bonita of the Canaries. The cane is harvested in May, fermented, and distilled shortly after. This fresh and smooth rum rested a few months at the distillery in 80-year old, wood-fired copper kettles.
Finished in a Moscatel barrel, this fresh sugarcane distillate absorbed the movement of nearly 10.000 miles at sea, crossing the Atlantic Ocean twice on its journey from La Palma to Amsterdam. Before bottling the rum was kept in the barrel for a full year. This gave it a very soft and smooth color and taste.
The rum’s nose is very pronounced and sweet-spicy for a young rum. The taste of the rum is very distinct for its kind, which clearly shows the fullness of sugar cane. The finish is nice, warm, and long.
This young rum is delicious to drink pure, and it is also fantastic for cocktails.
