Unsweetened, uncolored and only lightly filtered, these vintage rums represent the finest, truest expression of their producer and country of origin. Once the Cellar Master has discovered a particularly exceptional rum, he sets it aside for maturation. Under his patient watch, the rum slowly ages in ex-bourbon oak casks until it has reached the height of its potential.
This small batch of 5000 bottles was carefully blended from rums produced by several different Jamaican distilleries.Our master blender has carefully selected the age and ester content of the chosen spirits so that it contains the best of the typical pungency and tropical flavors of Jamaican rum. Every batch of Mezan XO is re-aged after blending to encourage the marriage of flavors and enhance the structure and subtlety of the rum.
This distinctive soft molasses-based rum is distilled in modern multi-column stills.The distillery grows its own cane for the production of both aguardiente and rum and also cultivates historical yeast cultures, which add character and individuality to the production of their rums.
