The Matusalem brand originated in Cuba, an allusion that remains on the label as “the Spirit of Cuba,” and migrated to the Dominican Republic at the outset of the revolution. The rum is molasses-based, aged in a solera system and bottled with an average age of 15 years. The color is brilliant, deep gold; the legs are far slower moving than any a salsa dancer’s.
AGED RUMRUM THAT IS AGED, BUT NO SPECIFIC TYPE OR SIZE BARREL REQUIRED. NO SET TIME REQUIRED FOR LENGTH OF AGING, BUT WILL OFTEN CARRY AN AGE STATEMENT (WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN WITH A GRAIN OF SALT). OFTEN THOUGHT OF AS “SIPPING RUMS”.
CASK TYPE : OAK
