“Exquisito” means just what it sounds like … and it is.

Juanillo Oliver was a native of Catalonia, Spain, who came to Cuba in the mid 1800s as a Spanish soldier. After his discharge from the military he decided to remain in the Caribbean and started his family there — raising sugarcane and tobacco for Rum and cigars. During the two wars for independence and the Cuban revolution, his family lost everything and fled to Dominica. In 1997, a few of his decedents decided to start the family Rum business once again by purchasing an inventory of existing spirit — and Oliver & Oliver was born.

O&O Exquisito 1985 is really special stuff. If you remember, the “solera” method is when the spirit is shifted from barrel to barrel over time. But only a portion is moved, so that there are always elements of spirit far older than the age statement. Well, O&O Exquisito 1985 is 21 YO Solera Rum. And it is aged in the tropics, where spirits age far faster. Simply stated, this is a Rum that taste like it was made by angels. Thick, rich, and packed with flavour.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. Most popular suggestions are: Rum (the Romani word for potent), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
