Liquid Assets Collective is a distributor of premium Spirits. They’re located on the north side of San Francisco Bay in San Rafael. They are registered importers and distributors. If you are having a tough time getting a Spirit into the American market, Liquid Assets Collect specializes in just that. And that tells you a lot about how they got their hands on casks of Myrtle Bank Rum.

Myrtle Bank 10 Year Old Jamaican Rum has been around the world. It starts as an estate Spirit produced by the famous Worthy Park Estate Distillery in the heart of Jamaica. It was produced in small batches in 100% copper pot stills. The Spirit was then sent to the UK where it was placed into first-fill Bourbon casks to age for a full decade. Those barrels were then sent to the Treasure Island Distillery in San Francisco Bay where the aged Rum was put unfiltered into those exceptional bottles at a nearly cask strength of 60% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
There are two words that define the taste and aroma of old, unfiltered, aged Jamaican Rums: rancio and hogo. Rancio notes are common in Sherry and are similar to raisins and dried figs. Hogo is a Creole slang of the French term "haut gout" or "high taste." It refers to the savory, somewhat sulfurous aroma of cured leather, certain cave-aged cheeses, and dry-aged meats.

Myrtle Bank’s New 10 Year Old Single Cask Rum is Elevating the Category Rum has gotten a bad reputation in recent years, as some brands have relied on misleading marketing, deceptive age statements, and non-disclosure of additives like sugar and coloring to sell their product. But there is dependable, high-quality rum available to drink these days, the latest of which comes from independent bottler Myrtle Bank. The brand is named after the Myrtle Bank Hotel, once one of the most impressive hotels in Jamaica, perhaps throughout the entire Caribbean. Built in the 1800s, the hotel truly reached its pinnacle in the 1920s and ‘30s when it was the epicenter of the thriving social scene in the nation’s capital, Kingston. Myrtle Bank’s new single cask rum has also reached its pinnacle. The rum was distilled in Jamaica at the country’s oldest distillery in traditional copper pot stills using molasses grown in the highlands. The rum was then put into ex-bourbon barrels and shipped to the UK, where it patiently spent a decade aging. This change in climate allowed for a really delicate maturation process. In the tropical heat of Jamaica, the rum’s character can be overtaken by tannins as it expands and contracts in and out of the wood over the years. In the more temperate UK climate, however, there is less angel’s share, meaning that the rum is able to age more like a fine single malt scotch. As the liquid slept inside these carefully watched oak casks, it picked up notes of tropical fruits, ripe banana, oak, vanilla and cocoa. No coloring or sugar was added to alter the appearance or flavor of this unique single estate spirit, allowing it to shine on its own merits. It’s bottled at 120 proof so the full flavor can be appreciated without being watered down. Myrtle Bank’s goal is to change the public’s perception of rum and introduce the American market to rare single cask releases, the likes of which were previously only available in Europe. While it might be more expensive to transport this rum on a continent-spanning journey from its Jamaican source, to the UK for aging, and then back across the Atlantic to the US, this journey has helped shape the character of this truly unique and delicious sipping rum.
