An ultra-premium aged rum from the Dominican Republic, this spirit is the result of a blend of rums aged 23 years in the Solera system. Deep and intense golden hues combine with a unique flavor and unmistakable character suited for the sophisticated palate. Considered the producer’s finest achievement, it was awarded a Silver medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"The rum hits the back of the throat with a rich ripe plum flavor suggesting some sort of fantastic chutney. As I stop to appreciate the finish, my mouth remains in a heightened state of joy as the bright notes f"ade and give way to baking spices and caramelized sugar.

Product Details

The highly attractive and appetizing hue for this ultra-premium rum hailing from the Dominican Republic is composed of deep amber and an orange, coppery iridescence that comes from twenty-three years of ageing in the Solera system. Its complex, multi-layered aromas include dried fruit over sweet pastry tones, fresh honey, magnolia, almond flower, caramelized sugar, toffee, exotic woods, cedar, white chocolate and almond. On the palate, the rum is very fine, elegant and creamy, with flavors of licorice and overtones of almond and hazelnut. Highly complex, it evolves to boast fresh, even fruity flavors, gradually becoming more sophisticated, with a finish that’s reminiscent of Sherry. It is considered the producer’s finest achievement, and offers up an unmistakable character for the true connoisseur.

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.
