Meticulously selected by the Cellar Master, Mezan vintage rums capture the depth and diversity of the Caribbean and offer a taste of its purest, most authentic flavors. Distilleries old and new, some founded centuries ago, others no longer in operation; all are subject to the Cellar Master’s discerning eye.
He tirelessly travels throughout the region, seeking out its hidden treasure; untouched rums, artfully crafted from a single year’s distillation by a singe distillery.
Unsweetened, uncolored and only lightly filtered, these vintage rums represent the finest, truest expression of their producer and country of origin. Once the Cellar Master has discovered a particularly exceptional rum, he sets it aside for maturation. Under his patient watch, the rum slowly ages in ex-bourbon oak casks until it has reached the height of its potential. It is then immediately bottled, one casks at a time, thereby preserving its singularity and ensuring that an unforgettable sensory experience lies within every drop of Mezan.
| Sa le Ends points
This delightful rum smells of a bag of mixed dried fruit with a splash of burnt butter. The palate is powerful, but not overwhelming and finishes with a hint of savory herbs that act as a counterpoint to the initial tropical tones.
|Wine maker notes
|Distinctive soft molasses based rums distilled in modern multi-column stills. The estate still produces its own sugarcane and the distillery was rebuilt in 1976 and is equipped with modern multicolumn stills. The company grows their own yeast culture, which adds to the individual and characterful rums.
