Robust, dark amber rum is a revelation for all coffee fans. Toasty aromas of coffee candy, maple cherry fudge, butter praline and bright dried fruit. Clear on the palate with a semi-dry body and a long, distinctive, peppery and creamy finish of brown spices, raisins as well as hazelnut latte macchiato.
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 1987 matured for about 28 years in former bourbon barrels before Marco Savio selected the best barrels for his bottling. The robust, dark, amber-colored rum is a revelation for all coffee fans. It develops roasted aromas of coffee candy, maple cherry fudge, butter praline and bright dried fruit. The finish is long and distinctive with peppery and creamy notes of brown spices, raisins as well as hazelnut latte macchiato.
