The 1985 vintage from Malecon is also one of the oldest. The fine interplay of aromas of vanilla, spices and dried fruits develops into a sensual composition on the palate.
With the Malecon Selección Esplendida series, brand owner Marco Savio opens the doors to his rarities chamber. These are absolute collectors’ items and works of art of the highest quality. It is almost too bad to open one of these rare bottles. But true art is hardly made to spend a life in darkness behind closed cabinet doors. The true art of bottlings unfolds only when the bottles are opened and the rum can unfold its aroma. For the Selección Esplendida, only the best and oldest vintages are selected from Rum Malecon’s stocks and bottled as vintage rums. These multiple award-winning drops are very popular not only among experts and collectors. But beware, when the vintage is out of stock, there is no more supply.
The Malecon Selección Esplendida 1985 was bottled in 2015 and is thus just under 30 years old. This rare vintage reveals aromas of vanilla and spice, and a pleasant woodiness from the long aging. Coffee, tobacco and dried fruit are underpinned by a harmonious sweetness.
