Flor de Cana, V Generaciones 30-year-old

RRP £1,500

Spirits age much faster in tropical climes, and by the time most rums reach 30 years old they’ve been overwhelmed by oak. This mahogany-coloured, single barrel release from Nicaragua’s Flor de Cana distillery takes it right to the brink, and splendidly so – it’s dark, tannic and woody, with brooding notes of dark chocolate, black cherry and bitter espresso. A spare-no-expense rum to savour in small amounts.
