A rich and full-bodied Dominican Republic Rum with a floral aroma and dense, caramel palate.

Oliver Juanillo came to Cuba in 1868 as a young Spanish soldier defending Spain’s claim on the territory. When his military service concluded, he founded a plantation farming tobacco and sugarcane. Within twenty years he was distilling Rum using the cane he grew — passing his plantation and Oliver and Oliver distillery on to his children. But in 1963 the Cuban Communist Revolution forced the family to flee — but they didn’t go far. The next island over was the Dominican Republic, and the family set up shop once again on these friendly shores where they distill some of the finest Dominican Rums to this very day under nineteen different brands.

Oliver and Oliver is now producing the Ron Esclavo line for 1423 — a Danish importer of fine Spirits. Ron Esclavo 15 Year Old is a richer follow-up to the immensely popular Ron Esclavo 12. It is a pure sugarcane-based Spirit aged for fifteen years using the Solera method, so there are elements of the Spirit that are far older. The superior aging develops a light and floral aroma and dense, full-bodied palate that is rich — almost to the point of decadence.

Smartass corner:
“Ron Esclavo” translates as “rum of the slaves.” The brand was named in tribute to the slaves who used to work the original Dominican plantations.

Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
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.
After the revolutionary triumph in 1959, the Oliver clan left Cuba and scattered across the world.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
