Distinguished by a warm amber hue, with a deep red glow. It displays toasted pecan and spice aromas which reveals more robust origins with tobacco aromas and the presence of wood character. A rounded palate leads to a more complex, flavourful, full-bodied palate of cocoa, coffee, sweet tobacco and brown spices. A pleasant smoky oak and spice finish blended with caramelised fruits to give the experience a remarkable balance. Enjoyed by rum connoisseurs as a slow sipping rum, neat or on the rocks.
Background: In order to create "Selección de Maestros", the Maestros Roneros select the finest aged rums that had one by one been put aside for their truly exceptional quality. These prestige hand picked rums are blended, then put to age again in specially selected barrels, each chosen for the powerful, aromatic potential of the wood, which they develop their character and intensity. At the end of this final stage in the ageing process, the Maestros Roneros get together to select the rums that will compose the final blend, which will be bottled straight from the barrel at 45% proof. This unique finishing process, the "Cuban Barrel Proof", gives the rum its unequalled aromatic bouquet and an exceptional quality. Already recognised as a high-quality, ultra-premium rum, Selección de Maestros has been awarded a Gold medal by three of the world's most influential spirits competitions; the San Francisco World Spirit Awards, the Beverage Testing Institute's International Review of Spirits and the International Wine and Spirit Competition.
