Review: Cane Island Nicaragua Rum (12 Years Old) 

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 17, 2020

Cane Island is a rum brand owned by Infinity Spirits, who appear to be based in Amsterdam. The purpose of the Cane Island Brand appears to be to showcase Rums which are sourced from a single distillery from iconic Island rum nations in the Caribbean and elsewhere in the world. Each one of these countries has a long history of rum production with their own styles and traditions.

Cane Island Nicaragua Rum was distilled at an undisclosed distillery in Nicaragua. The spirit was column distilled from molasses and tropically aged for 12 years in ex bourbon barrels. The spirit is bottled at 43 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my review of a truly exceptional rum:

Review: Cane Island Nicaragua Rum (12 Years Old)

“… The rum is smooth, and I taste a delicious mixture of vanilla, oak spice, butterscotch and orange peel. Some grassy tobacco is apparent, as is an underlying nuttiness that reminds me of almonds. Baking spices (cinnamon and hint of nutmeg) and a fruity impression of canned apricots …”

Earlier in the month I stated that Don Omario’s Vintage Rum was the finest in the 2020 – 24 Day’s of Rum Advent Calendar. Cane Island Nicaragua has me re-examining that statement.
