A Rum from the Dominican Republic that just might be their best of the year.
 
Juanillo Oliver came to Cuba as a member of the Spanish military in the mid-1800s. After his tour of duty ended, he stayed to work in the Rum industry to found Oliver and Oliver. In Cuba’s second war for independence, the plantation and distillery were destroyed. But a century later his great-great-grandson re-founded the family business — this time in the Dominican Republic. To this day they make some of the most sought-after Rums for consumers all over the world. Today they offer a wide variety of Rum brands, mixers, and specialty Liqueurs.
 
One of Oliver and Oliver’s well-known brands is Ron Cubaney. Cubaney Ron Tesero Grand Reserve just might be the top Rum coming from any Oliver and Oliver brand at the moment (but their offers are so numerous we reserve the right to change our minds on this). Importantly, this particular Rum is Solera-aged up to twenty-five years — justifying the “XO” at the bottom of the label. And holy mackerel… this stuff is good. It’s lightly sweet, with not a trace of bitterness and a rich, super-complex palate. Please sir… we want so more!

Appearance / Color
Deep Mahogany
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma — let’s call it perfume — is delicate and filled with an orchestra of notes from sugar and baking spices to sultanas, cherries, warm tobacco leaf, cedar wood, and sea salt.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is complex, yet firm with a rich body and notes of dried fruits, leather, toffee, and brown butter lending an almost Whisky-like quality.
 
Finish 
The finish is long and savory.

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.’
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
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.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
