Distilleria de Sancti Spiritus Sherrywood Finished Fine Cuban Rum 2003
This has to be one of the most exceptional Cuban rums to have ever crossed the path of Harvey Nichols. Distilled in 2003, finished in Sherry casks and bottled in 2016, this tot is brimming with barbequed pineapple sprinkled with Demerara sugar, dried fruits from the Spanish barrels, cinnamon-spiced cocoa like a Mexican hot chocolate, vanilla and grassy notes. Despite being much-loved by premium independent bottlers, very little is known about the obscure Sancti Spiritus Distillery in central Cuba, other than that it’s also known as Paraíso and has been rumoured to have supplied Havana Club with some liquid during its history. That air of mystery only adds to the excitement surrounding this sipping rum.
John Barrett of Bristol Classic Rum lovingly seeks out rare rums of distinction produced by individual estates. Sometimes just single barrels from single stills, these rums spend years maturing in damp dark cellars on the British mainland. Effectively John Barrett follows the model akin to that of an independent whisky bottler. Whisky expert Dave Broom says that: “His firm is, as far as I know, the only one to attempt to do for rum what malt whisky has done for Scotch – premium, small batch, top end, single distillery/single still spirits with individuality and character.” Bottled straight from the cask with only the lightest of filtration, these limited edition rums should be sipped as you would a malt whisky, aged calvados or the finest cognac.
