La Favorite – Martinique

Style: ron agricole.

A natural sweet. Citrus and fresh cane scents. Balanced taste.


El Dorado 25 – Guyana

Style: blend.

Dense, sweet and rich, yet very fine. Dark and roasted chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, caramel and espresso. They come together with earthy walnuts and smoked tobacco. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves.


Don Papa – Philippines

Style: vintage

Sweet aromas: vanilla, molasses, butter cream, cake batter and orange peel. On the palate, the rum is dry and sufficient fruit acids stand out to balance its intense sweetness. In the spices, the cloves extend this spicy sensation and the finish attacks with a spicy bite.


Zacapa – Guatemala

Style: solera

A perfect rum to drink neat. First notes: roasted coffee, butterscotch, vanilla and dark chocolate. Then, fresh citrus and apricot hints refresh the palate, and are joined by green herbal notes, nutmeg and ginger. Long finish with flavors of caramel, pipe tobacco, cedar and toasted nuts.


Diplomático – Venezuela

Style: blend

Bold, dark, fruity and full-bodied. Notes of sweetened honey and butterscotch are accentuated along with notes of sage and thyme, and a hint of citrus fruit peel. Both sweet and spicy spices provide a warmth that does not burn, but rather creates a pleasant tingle. Perfect for drinking neat.


Chalong Bay – Thailand

Powerful profile with exotic hints of coconut milk, vanilla and lychee, and fruity notes of various citrus fruits. Aromas of fresh cane juice and agave are combined. To finish, lavender honey, spices and inebriating flowers.


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
