Ron de Jeremy XXXO

2019 LIMITED EDITION

Single batch one time only experience crafted with love and filled with passion.

 

At Trinidad Distilleries very fine rum was put to age in American Oak Barrels way back in another century in 1991. That exquisite and rare 27 year old rum was blended with 18 year old rum from the renowned Foursquare Distillery to form the heart and soul of the 2019 XXXO Limited Edition. This blend does not only have a hint of the precious old rum; it represents 12,5% of the total volume. The blend was then completed with another batch from the Foursquare Distillery, providing backbone and balance, and fine rums from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Panama bring woodiness and texture to the equation.

 

The 2019 Limited Edition Ron de Jeremy XXXO is a beautifully balanced and sophisticated rum. The elegant nose brings forward hazelnut, coconut, vanilla and toffee. On the palate the XXXO is rich, velvety and balanced showcasing delicate notes of dried fruits such as banana and prunes, honey, dark chocolate and nougat. The oak comes through beautifully. For such an old rum the XXXO is unbelievably smooth. The luxurious taste lingers on, forever.

 

True colours, no added sugar.

 

Only 4772 bottles of this one-time only rum were made.
