A rare vintage gem from Jamaica.

Coruba is one of those exciting brands any true Rum lover should sample and experience at least once. And once you try Coruba, once won’t be enough, trust us. Jamaican Rum is famous for its strong, enigmatic flavors, most often described as “funky,” and Coruba is no different. Their whole high-end range is really just high-end and...high-end only, so it’s no surprise that their products consistently win awards and praise of Rum fans everywhere. Although the Rum is distilled in Jamaica, it’s made for a Swiss-based Rum Company. What the funk? Interesting combination, to say the least. But it works and that’s what’s important.

Coruba 2000 Matusalem is a vintage expression that was distilled in 2000 and aged for more than 18 years in oak casks for Jamaica. It was then finished in Matusalem Oloroso Sherry casks from the house Gonzalez Byass, hence the name. The production was limited to 999 bottles, so you should consider yourself very lucky if you’re able to get your hands on this rare gem.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
