A super-premium Brazilian Rum… sort of, with a delicious, smooth palate worth the trip.

Founded in 2005, Maison Leblon is a Brazilian producer of Spirits owned by Barcardi. The vast majority of their production is Brazillian Cachaça — a distilled sugarcane-based Spirit. The distillery is surrounded by sugarcane fields in a fertile valley of the Minas Gerais region just inland from Rio De Janeiro.

Leblon Reserva Especial Rum is technically a fine, aged, Brazilian Cachaça. Think of it as a Brazilian-style Agricole Rum made in alembic stills. That is good stuff. But what makes this fine dram special is that it is aged for two years in new, Limousin oak casks important from France. You don’t use brand new, expensive casks like that to make just any old average Rum. You only invest in those premium casks to make a very special, signature Spirit.


Smartass Corner:
Cachaça is sometimes called "Brazilian Rum." But importantly, Cachaça is only made from fresh-pressed sugar juice while Rum is usually made from molasses, but can be made from cane juice. Rums made from fresh cane juice are sometimes called Agricole 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.
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.’

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.
