Pot- and column still distillates are base of our smooth and dry rum from Barbados molasses. A bold selection of barrels as PALO CORTADO, RUBY PORT, and MOSCATEL finished this 8 years old Bajan rum at sea.
Pot still distilled from molasses in 2014 on the Foursquare distillery in Barbados, this rum rested in Bourbon barrels until January 2022, until our ship Tres Hombres arrived with Palo Cortado, Ruby Port, PX and Moscatel barrels in Bridgetown.
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 motifs from the Tres Hombres and their 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 color. To achieve this, the wax is mixed with color 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-colored into the glass and lets the time run down inside the glass.
The nose is spicy, oak is easily recognizable, 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.
