The game of rum as we know has been changed by one of the most honored rum blenders in the world. Never before having put his name on a label, Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez from Panama, Cuba has finally marked a bottle of his handiwork. By making rum for more than 45 years, he has perfected the “Cuban method” and he has been recognized as one of the best in the business. With the release of Don Pancho Origenes 30 Year Rum, he is namely establishing the brand that he has created.
With every sip you will taste the exquisite soft caramel bouquet, accompanied by deep aromas of vanilla and oak with strengths of tobacco, praline, pecan and orange peel. Containing a full body texture, it echoes cognac and toasted nuts through hints of figs, bourbon and a very long dry and warm finish. This luxury rum is limited to only 600 bottles in the USA and each bottle is hand numbered and signed by Don Pancho himself. This is his vision of what true aged rum should be and is his way of honoring his past and those before him who were also depositaries of the Cuban tradition of rum making. Consume this splendor neat on special occasions. And don’t forget, “This is not an aperitif but a digestive, drink it slowly, drink it neat. Never Alone.” –Don Pancho
