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.
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.
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!
I am not much of a rum fan, personally prefer the subtlety of cognac. That being said I have had my fair share of rums in my time and by far this is one that I remember vividly. It was head a shoulders above the rest. I wish I have another bottle stashed somewhere.
I bought this rum by accident. I was travelling to Venezuela and ended up with a handful of the local currency at the airport. With limited options to spend, I settled on the most exclusive bottle at the airport. It had its own pedestal in the middle of the shop.
I took it home and left it unattended for years, not making much of it. One summer night sitting late with a friend we decided to open and quaff this rum. It was sublime! It is a shame this distillery is deep in the shadow of Diplomatico in terms of popularity, what they deliver is exquisite!
I was really excited to find this at Potomac Wines and Spirits, as this bottle was very hard to find.
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.
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.
