15 Gran Reserva Rum
First produced in Santiago de Cuba in 1872, Matusalem was forced to cease operations during the Cuban Revolution. Resurrected by one of the original founders’ great grandsons in the Dominican Republic, the spirit of Cuba and one of the rum world’s true icons was reborn.
This Caribbean molasses rum is aged in a Solera system rather like those used for Sherry. The Solera system is a series of barrels with the oldest on the bottom and the youngest on the top. Rum is bottled from the bottom row, that row is then topped up from the next oldest on the level up and so on up the system, the gap at the top is then filled with young rum. For this bottling of Matusalem the average age of the rum in the Solera is 15 years old, in reality some is a lot older and some a little younger. Rich and smooth, but this has fire in its belly. Expect freshly baked hot cross buns, flambéed banana, poached pear, cherry liqueurs, campfires, cognac-soaked prunes, dates and raisins, orange peel, quince jelly, butterscotch, vanilla, cigar smoke, malt biscuits, cashews and so much more. Drink neat or grab your cocktail shaker and get creative.
