Now that relations with America have recently warmed, thawing the remnants of our Cold War stand-off, we're finally bringing real "Caribbean" rum back to our thirsty rum drinkers. This unsweetened 100 proof edition brings richness from 17 years in oak, but it's still a dry and ester-driven rum with loads of fruit and a little bit of funk to balance it out. Those picturing Havana Club need to imagine a bit less sugar and bit more tropical fruit with an earthy cane finish. Without a doubt, however, this is one of the best rums we've ever carried and if you've got a hankering for cigars, this "Caribbean" edition makes for a fine pairing.
