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
. 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.
