Cane Island Dominican Republic Aged 5 Years is the final review in the recently released trio of rums from Cane Island.
As mentioned previously Cane Island are a new Independent bottler – at the moment their rums are only available from shops in Amsterdam. Luckily most of these stores deliver to the UK so I didn’t miss out on trying these rums.
Ron Varadero is a Cuban rum brand which is extremely popular in Spain. They have a number of different expressions. Mostly at the younger end of the scale.
This is one of their two more premium rums. They also have a 15 year old rum in the range. As mentioned Ron Varadero is popular in Spain where, despite its age is often taken with cola.
Cane Island are a new Independent bottler. We have already covered their 8 Year Old Barbados rum – a rather good one from Foursquare.
Up next is an 8 Year Old from Trinidad. Which means it is to young to come from the the now defunct and much heralded Caroni distillery. Leaving us with the only remaining option on Trinidad – Angostura.
Jefferson’s Very Rare 24 year Old Rum is the second release from “The Rum Story” visitor attraction, based in Whitehaven, Cumbria, North West England.
The attraction explores the history of the rum trade and in particular the Jefferson family who until 1998, when the shop the attraction is now housed in closed, where the oldest Wine and Spirits Merchants in the UK. With a history tracing back to 1785.
Another independent release from Berrys’ Bros and Rudd. This time they have bottled a Latin style rum from Panama.
Perhaps the best known rum brand from Panama is Ron Abuelo. Until recently you could argue that one of Don Pancho’s many blends – Ron de Jeremy Reserva was better known/ more infamous. That rum is no longer from Panama – it is now a Caribbean blend.
Blackadder let’s be honest about things. It’s in your head and in its my head. No doubt it gets into the head of everyone who ever buys a Blackadder Whisky or Rum and is familiar with BBC comedy.
I don’t even know whether there is any connection between the Rowan Atkinson series and this Independent bottler. Appearance wise I am certainly getting a feel of “The Black Adder” which was the first (very different) series of the popular comedy. My recollections come mainly from the 2nd and 3rd incarnations. And yes that bloody ludicrous folky theme tune………
Cane Island are a relative newcomer to the market. Last year they released a range of aged rums from Cuba, Barbados and Jamaica. These were blends of rums from two different distilleries from each location.
This year they have followed those releases up with three more rums. This time though they are all given definitive age statements on the bottles. The rums hail from Barbados, Dominican Republic and Trinidad.
