Ron Colón Salvadoreño coffee infused rum is made with a base of 6-year-old column-distilled rum sourced from Licorera Cihuatán distillery in El Salvador. Small additions of unaged Jamaican rums sourced from Worthy Park, Hampden and Monymusk, as well 3-year-old rum from Worthy Park estate bring a rich flavour experience. The 111-proof coffee infused expression is made with the addition of whole bourbon coffee beans sourced from Jags Head Coffee in El Salvador. The infusion is made in a cold brew style; the beans are blended with the rum for 48 hours, imparting a rich chocolate, cherry fruitiness into the spirit, creating a balance between the coffee and rum. Can be enjoyed in a coffee highball or Negroni.
Easily consumable in a bind
I think this is such a fun building block for some old Fashions .... or any bourbon cocktail.
Aromas of tropical fruits are most apparent with fresh banana and sticky pineapple. Ad- ding to this there is a deeper aroma of rich raisins and prunes.
I am a fan
Initially very powerful taste and feeling of the 55 ABV, followed by strong notes of coffee and subtle hints of honey
In comparison to their other coffee infused rums this one strikes a better balance between the strong taste of coffee and rum
In aroma is the coffee not much presented. Taste is mix of three different tones - jamaican tones with pepper, coffee and smooth aged rum. Interesting experience, but not my "cup of tee".
Wow, this was an experience. Very different to other high ABV rums, crisp and smooth. Nice funky tunes.
Mix with tonic and win the party. Easy.
While personally the Blue Label for me is the real winner, I was pleasantly surprised by this expression. The coffee flavour coming from an infusion of whole coffee beans from El Salvador is strong, but not overpowering. The Rum blend and the coffee pair beautifully, creating a long lasting caramel finish. And as a bartender the mixing possibilities are endless. If you are looking for a liqueur this is not it. No sugars, no BS, high quality rum and high quality coffee beans, represented here with transparency and out most respect for the components. I like.
Quite an unexpected flavour with lots of coffee on the nose, but quite a delicate flavour. Certainly very different from coffee rum products I've had in the past which tend to be sweet. Worked great for a Negroni, definitely one to try!
