Product Details

This Solera-aged rum from the Dominican Republic rum house first tempts with its dark honey and golden hue. Its complex nose features caramel and toffee, along with notes of roasted coffee bean, vanilla and coconut—a seductive bouquet wreathed in the warm, creamy aroma of molasses. The palate is pleasant and silky, balanced between the flavors of nutmeg, vanilla caramel and oak, leading to an exceptionally enjoyable finish. Ten years of aging for this classic golden rum lends it a versatility that makes it very mixable in your favorite cocktail.

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.
