Review: Ron Inmortal Colombian Rum (Aged 12 Years)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 5, 2021

In the historic port of Barranquilla (Colombia), situated between the Magdalena River and the Caribbean Sea, three generations of the Riascos Family have been producing rums at Casa Santana for over two decades. They source sugar cane spirit from various producers in the Caribbean to produce rum for a variety of independent rum companies.

Ron Inmortal is produced at Casa Santana for Yotomo Imports a Texas based spirits company. According to the marketing presentation for the Inmortal Rum the spirit is targeted towards the growing North American Market for Premium rum. The rum is distilled from sugar cane molasses, aged  for 12 years in American Oak barrels, and bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Ron Inmortal Colombian Rum (Aged 12 Years)

“… Toffee and oak meld with vanilla and baking spices (cinnamon, allspice and clove). There is a indication of orange peel in the breezes which seems to be moving towards marmalade as it joins with the vanilla and the caramel toffee. There are also nice hints of bitterness with treacle and dark chocolate notes evolving …”

Please enjoy the review of this tasty Colombian Rum.

Chimo!

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.

Chimo!

Review: Tullamore Dew Finest Old Irish Whiskey (12 Years Old)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 10, 2017

irish-splash-sam_3025Tullamore Dew Finest Old Irish Whisky has been replaced in the Tullamore lineup by the new 12 Year Old Special Reserve, however bottles of the 12 Year Old Finest are still available (at least in my locale).

Tullamore Dew Whisky is composed of three different mature Irish Whiskies: Irish Pot Still Whiskey, which is distilled three times in a giant copper ‘pot’ still from a mash of malted barley as well as other cereal grains; Irish Grain Whiskey which is distilled on a multiple (two or three) column continuously operating ‘patent’ still from a corn (or maize) based mash with small amounts of malted barley; and Irish Malt Whiskey which is distilled three times on a pot still using only malted barley.

The Tullamore Dew Finest Old Irish Whisky was matured for a minimum of 12 years in oak barrels and bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Tullamore Dew Finest Old Irish Whiskey

“… The initial breezes above the glass bring fine oak spice and punky caramel with light almond and vanilla accents. As I let the glass breathe the fine oak spices gained momentum, cereal grain joined in along with light baking spices (vanilla, ginger and cinnamon) and the almond aroma deepened somewhat towards marzipan …”

Please enjoy my review which begins a short series of Irish Whiskey reviews which I will publish on the run-up to St. Patrick’s Day.

Chimo!
