Hispaniola XXIII Solera System – 50cl.

Bourbon casks stored this rum for many years in the Caribbean heat of Santo Domingo. Two Madeira barrels and 5 months of sailing the North Atlantic brought excellence to this spirit. Salud!
As many people know Oliver & Oliver use the Solera system to mature the rums.
The truth is that the word ‘Solera’ reveals much about the Rum before you’ve even tasted it.
So, how does the Solera system work?

The Solera system was first conceived in Spain and has been used for many different liquids, Sherry being the most obvious, and balsamic vinegar perhaps the most surprising. The goal was (and still is) the creation of a consistent, reliable, and therefore quality product.

In Spanish, solera means “on the ground”.  And when it comes to aging liquids in this particular way, the barrels are organized in rows from the ground up, with the lowest layer of barrels containing the oldest aged liquid.

The next row of barrels is called first criaderas (or “nurseries” – the translation really tells you all you need to know) and contains the intermediate average age and the second criaderas, the highest level in a three-row setup – will contain the youngest average age liquid.

Solera System
Tasting note:

A smell of orange and earthy peat. Wow, hard to describe,  so you will have to try yourself! But certainly a fine explosion of tastes.


Each bottle is lavishly decorated with motifs from the Tres Hombres and their travels. The design is made by Lynx Guimond who, not only made the famous figurehead on Tres Hombres, but also made this masterpiece of woodcarving right above the steering wheel. Closed with a natural cork and sealed with beeswax. Each variety has its own color. To achieve this, the wax is mixed with color pigments that are ground from natural raw materials in a traditional windmill in Zaandam.
