Until the age of majority, this rum matures in selected oak barrels to inspire the connoisseur with a fragrance and taste experience like no other.
Malecon Reserva Imperial 18 years is probably the most popular rum in the portfolio. Perhaps because with its 18 years it is considered to be of age and thus triggers above all good associations? But most certainly it is due to the unique quality that is in the glass after the 18 years of wooden barrel aging. Even among experts, the rum enjoys a great reputation and has already received many awards for its quality. The rum, which is best enjoyed in a glass swivel and at room temperature, has developed multi-layered aromas in the course of its maturation and requires a quiet minute to be enjoyed appropriately.
In the glass, the rum immediately develops an intense, sweet character. Let the rum stand for a bit and then smell it again. Notice how the rum evolves in the glass? Aromas of dried apricots and a hint of chocolate have joined the potpourri of scents. The rum has also earned its time on the palate. Let the sip linger in your mouth for a few seconds and enjoy the moment when the alcohol reveals its complex flavors. The Malecon Reserva Imperial 18 years is amazingly smooth yet intense. Aromas of vanilla, cocoa beans and dried fruit spread throughout the mouth. In addition, there is a clearly noticeable note of maturity in the form of spicy wood notes, which is particularly noticeable in the finish. A taste which lingers long and makes time pause for a very special moment. This is not a rum for every day, but a rum for every special day.
By the way, those who enjoy an Old Fashioned cocktail should try this once with a Malecon Reserva Imperial 18 years.
