Referred to as the Cognac of rums, this ultra-premium spirit from the Dominican Republic is aged 15 years using the Solera system. Complex, with a velvety smoothness and a marked bouquet and flavor, it’s ideal for drinking neat or on the rocks by those seeking exceptional quality and exquisite flavor.

"It took everything I threw at it and asked for more. It’s got butter and vanilla up front, an understated mid-palate without a lot of heaviness, and a nice, quiet finish that begs for another sip."

Jeffrey Morganthaler, bartender and writer

Product Details

This Solera-aged ultra-premium rum from the Dominican Republic rum house first tempts with its amber hue and its hints of reddish, copper and ochre. Its complex, fine and intense nose has dry, persistent woody tones, and the palate is very pleasant, with rich flavors of toasted dried fruits and caramel. Its smooth texture is joined by a finish that evolves from oak, to cocoa, to Cognac. Fifteen years of aging for this classic rum lends it sip-able spirit neat or on the rocks, for those who seek exquisite flavor and exceptional quality.

About the Producer

Matusalem & Company was founded by brothers Benjamin and Eduardo Camp, who left Spain and settled in Cuba to launch a rum distillery. In 1872, the Camp brothers, along with their partner Evaristo Alvarez, established the Matusalem brand in Santiago de Cuba, bringing with them their knowledge and expertise in the Solera system of blending and distillation used in making Spanish brandy. (The name "Matusalem" is Spanish for Methuselah, the Old Testament patriarch said to have lived for 969 years, and it was chosen as a reference to the Solera aging process used in producing the brand.) In 1956, under Castro's regime, the Alvarez family left Cuba, and the brand became fractured and neglected until 1995, when a settlement resulted in control by Claudio Alvarez. The brand was re-launched in 2002, and today, Matusalem Rum is owned and managed by Proximo spirits, and produced in the Dominican Republic. Its master blenders are all descendants of the original founders, and experts in the centuries old technique of Solera blending that is a signature of the house.
