Bloomsbury, Atelier Cubana

RRP £250

Flavoured and spiced rums have had a rather tacky reputation, but a few new releases are now trying to take the sector upmarket. Created by the Bloomsbury Distillery for Fine + Rare, Cubana is a blend of Jamaican rums seasoned with distillates of Cuban cigar tobacco, cacao nibs and lime. The pale gold result marries pungent, esthery tropical fruit – mango, pineapple – with mellow amber leaf and a finish bitter with citrus oils.
