1888 is a truly extraordinary rum. 1888 is first matured in hand-picked ex bourbon American oak casks, then in European oak, first-fill sherry casks. This blend of two worlds gives 1888 a complex yet balanced spirit that stimulates the senses and evolves in the glass.
Enjoy 1888, sip by sip. Dark amber color slightly reddish, clear and bright. Presents multiple aromas that evolve as time goes. Featured spicy, with presence of chocolate, roasting and flavors reminiscent of cinnamon and dried fruit. In the palate is nice and soft. Is happy, alive and with a good body. Perceiving caramel flavor, wood and licorice. Remarkably long aftertaste, woody, complex, elegant and slightly sweet.
A limited-edition rum, newly launched in August 2011, and finished in previously used Sherry casks. That Sherry finish contributes so much: the bright copper-penny color, the lush aromas of burnt orange and raisin and the smooth, full-bodied texture. Enjoy the elongated flavors of toffee flavor dusted with Mexican-spiced chocolate while you can.
