Denizen Merchants Reserve Rum 8 Year Old 750ml
Intensely aromatic and unapologetically funky. Denizen Merchant’s Reserve is a deep amber-colored molasses rum with a refined taste profile revealing bright fruity caramel flavors balanced by earthy notes that lead to a long smooth spicy finish.
Denizen Merchant’s Reserve is the first rum consisting of aged pot still rums from Jamaica and a rare component of strongly aromatic Rhum Grand Arome from Martinique, yielding a flavorful base spirit that will make cocktails shine. The rums used in our blend have been crafted using the finest slow working yeasts, which extend the fermentation time and allow the high ester flavor compounds to fully develop.60% of the blend has been aged a minimum of 8 years in small once-used American oak bourbon barrels giving Denizen Merchants Reserve an unparalleled level of smoothness to rival the world’s best-sipping rums.
An excellent blend of 8 years Plummer style Jamaican rum and a rare component of Rhum Grande Arome from the island of Martinique. Bright, fruity, and caramel flavors balanced by earthy tones with a smooth, spicy finish. Awarded Double Gold Medal at SF World Spirits Comp 2019.
Drawing on the Netherland’s long history of sourcing and blending rum, Denizen is looking to bring a more classic sensibility to your rum cocktails. Merchant’s Reserve combines Rhum Grand Arome from Martinique and rums from four different Jamaican distilleries: Clarendon, Hampden, New Yarmouth, and Worthy Park. 60% of the rum has been aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon barrels.
