Overview

Captain Kidd Rum 30 year old Rum 40% ABV (1x 700ml), Canary Island, Spain. Cork

The oldest rum from Destilerías Arehucas, Captain Kidd is bottled in a ceramic decanter reminiscent of the past. Each one of its nuances represents our spirit and the years that go by in our centenary cellars. Nothing less than 30 years maturing in oak barrel… patience, without rushing is the only way to achieve the result desired, that of satisfying the most demanding palates.

Tasting NotesTasting Notes Captain Kidd`s shows a golden amber color in your tasting glass. Legs bead quickly and many after swirling, dripping thin and slowly; suggesting a drier-style rum without undue residual sugar. Several legs re-form and drip from mid-glass, well under the original crown of beads that formed from swirling. Ah well, there`s only so much that appearances can suggest to the eyes (or mislead them). The nose knows, and the mouth speaks the truth, so let`s press on. A bouquet of sweet caramel & milk chocolate emerge gently from the flagon bottle, then carry on with purpose until the atmosphere in your space is awash in this rum`s perfume. The aromas are considerably deeper and more intense, presenting the smells you find in a rum distillery`s musty barrel aging bodega. Charred oak, leather and vanilla come to mind first, nutmeg and walnut shells riding on that beautiful caramel blanket, then lesser notes of golden raisin and dried apple. While the aromas are big and heavy, the initial taste is less so, with dry mellow spices and less caramel than the nose suggested, spice forward, flavors of exotic hardwood. The body is considerably lighter too, then the very smooth finish wows with wonderfully balanced wood, sweet caramel and dry spices with the addition of star anise, white pepper and pecan.

A cool brown ceramic ``Onion bottle`` is the shape you could imagine Kidd drank from on his 17th Century ship. A broad base ballasts the valuable contents, preventing spillage as the ship heels. Wooden cap with natural (257917-1)
