Aged and Filtered Light Rum.
Cana Brava Rum is a very clean and fresh rum blanco with notes of sugar cane and citrus supported by flavors
from oak. A balanced nose of fresh cut green grass with honey, coconut, and molasses. On the palate, it is smooth and clean with plenty of citrus and slight oak notes offering a touch of vanilla, cacao butter,
and dark chocolate. It has a silky mouth feel with a medium/long and dry finish. We recommend this rum in
Daiquiris, Hemingways,El Presidentes, and many other classic cocktails.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - A dusty herbaceous nose is balanced by muted honey aromas. Fresh cane comes through on the palate supplemented with creamy vanilla notes and a touch of coconut. Herbal notes emerge on the extended finish (Apr 2014)
The palate has great pure fresh sugar cane juice and citrus with notes of dark chocolate balanced with molasses, cacao butter, vanilla and spices hinting allspice and cinnamon. Dry with just a hint of sweetness, medium to full bodied with a silky mouthfeel and with a finish that is clean, long and surprisingly fruity.
|Las Cabras Distillery was first erected in 1919 as a sugar mill. Since then ownership has passed between the government, international investors, and failed businessmen. In the mid-nineties, Don Pancho and Carlos Esquivel discovered the neglected warehouse, and beneath the overgrown grass, they uncovered a copper column still with a small medallion inscribed with ‘Cincinnati 1922’. Don Pancho’s skills and experience were soon put to good use, and Las Cabras was transformed into one of the great rum distilleries of the world.
