From ArteNOM tequila mastermind Jake Lustig comes a new rum project that celebrates the Panama-Pacific relationship between San Francisco and the South American country. From Panama's famed growing region of La Provincia de Herrera comes a delicious sipping rum distilled from estate-grown sugar cane molasses that is then barrel-aged in 220 liter ex-Bourbon casks. Aged for twenty-three years and imported directly to CA by Haas Brothers in San Francisco, it's an incredible new step into another exciting genre for Jake. The 23 year is a smooth and silky revelation that relies on the quality of the distillate rather than the introduction of caramel or sweeteners. It finishes robust and dry on the palate with a savory note and hints of pepper and spice. True 23 year old rum for a ridiculous price that can stand on its own merit. Everyone should own a bottle of this.
