A.H.Rise Christmas Edition 2015 could very well be some of the best Rum you will ever taste or give as a gift. 
 
A. H. Riise was a pharmacist from Denmark who resettled in the Danish West Indies—now the US Virgin Islands. Other islands had begun distilling Rum, but none in Danish-controlled areas, so good ‘ol Mr. Riise did just that and procured a warrant to supply Rum to the Danish navy. This naturally gave rise (pardon the pun) to their first core product, Danish Navy Rum. 
 
Today, A. H. Rise has changed hands, but it is still located in St. Croix where they acquire fresh molasses distillate from the famous Cruzan Distillery on Saint Thomas to age and blend in the creation of a full range of Rums, from youthful mixing Rums through super-premium sippers. 
 
Uncle Flaviar LOVES this Rum. You can only get it this time of the year and it is always in strictly limited supply. If you are a Rum aficionado, you can take just one look at that rich mahogany color and feel a tingle on the back of your neck. If you are new to Rum, that deep, red-bronze hue is like a slinky, red silk nightgown promising an evening’s delights. And A. H. Riise Christmas Edition is no tease. 
 
This is premium molasses Rum aged 20 years and finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. They call it a “Christmas Edition” not because they have added any artificial candy-cane schtick. No, they call it Christmas because those super-premium PX casks naturally bring an essence of cinnamon, clove, and orange zest to this high-end bottle of silky Rum goodness. This could very well be some of the best Rum you will ever taste … or give as a gift.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. Most popular suggestions are: Rum (the Romani word for potent), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).

Perfect. Simply Christmas.

Love this, so pleased back in stock as I've exhausted stock in Germany! Hard to find and great price. Really nice warming taste with subtle spices unlike any other spiced rum. Very different to traditional rum though so beware as nothing like a good Ron.... Enjoy.
