This rum is 25 year old (no blending), youll get the pure taste from a single barrel. Only 500 hundred bottles of this rum are made per year. Impossible to find in the US. I was lucky to find a bottle at a duty free overseas.
El ron Carúpano Legendario, añejado en Carúpano, ciudad ubicada en el Oriente del país, es uno de los más exclusivos y costosos de Venezuela. Edición limitada.
I was really excited to find this at Potomac Wines and Spirits, as this bottle was very hard to find (is it possible this is counterfeit?)
I compared it against my low 10 rated rums, and this wasn't quite there. This was a 9, however. Definitely a great rum.
Smells and tastes of spice, candied fruits, molasses, walnuts, and oak. Somewhat sweet and very nice.
Was lucky enough to get hold of this exclusive bottle. Too good to be shared...
E' uno dei migliori Rum del mondo. Lo consiglio a tutti i veri appassionati di rum di altissimo livello.
Ron Carupano is a small, independent Venezuelan distillery producing masterpieces. The best of the bunch are Legendario and Zafra, but there is good quality throughout the aged rum range. The only problem is getting hold of bottles outside of Venezuela!
Ron Añejo Carúpano Legendario se obtiene con 25 años de añejamiento cerrado sin reposición de mermas, logrando una mezcla de notas de avellana, nuez y esencias frutales que se ven sienten en su color ámbar intenso. Anualmente se elaboran solo 500 botellas.
