Undisclosed Distillery in Trelawny Parish
A rum with pungent and impetuous aromas on the nose and palate. The Jamaica Rum selected by Cuspid Spirits is characterized by high esters and a full mouthfeel texture.
It was aged in Scotland for 13 years in an ex-bourbon cask. We liked it for its typicality, its strength but also for its balance.
Trelawny, the area where the distillery is located in the north-west of Jamaica, historically represents the “grand crû” of Jamaican rum and is characterized by an incredible biodiversity. The distillery is located just a few kilometres from the pristine Cockpit Country where the last crocodiles of the island still live.
Founded in 1753, it is considered one of the best distilleries in the world and produces one of the most aromatic and intense rum. The distillation process quality is based on: the use of its own spring water; the prolonged fermentation characterized by the use of wild yeasts; the distillation exclusively in copper still with discontinuous distillation and the absence of any adulteration.
Rum defined as industrial are obtained with a continuous distillation and they are almost devoid of taste. The discontinuous distillation which characterizes the Jamaica rum selected by Cuspid allows the distillation of other aromatic substances, such as esters and other congeners, besides alcohol, which migrate in the moisture. The rum that flows from the still has a distinctive flavour and oily texture.
