Product Details

Dark amber in the glass, this rum from Panama is rich and full-bodied, with overt notes of oak and smokiness along with a touch of sweetness that’s coaxed out with the addition of water. The spirit reflects the producer’s passion to craft the finest aged rums in the world. It’s made from estate-grown sugarcane and aged twelve years in small oak barrels. Its smoothness and complexity will fulfill the most sophisticated palate, and it’s best enjoyed neat or with a little water or ice. It was named Best in Class at the 2010 RumXP Tasting Competition at the Rum Renaissance.

About the Producer

In 1908, Don Jose Varela Blanco, a young Spanish entrepreneur, opened the first sugar mill in Pesé, only five years after Panama seceded from Colombia.  Along with his three eldest sons, he began distilling spirits there in 1936.  Today, Luis J. Varela, Jr. is the third generation of the Varela family running the company. "Our brand is the expression of our long and passionate quest to produce the finest Aged rum in the world," he says.
