Dominican Rum meets Scottish Highlands.

The name “Summum” comes from an old Latin Expression which means “the highest good.” If Rum is your thing, then you might agree with that and the Summum Rum master Juan Alberto Alvarez has followed this philosophy of absolute excellence, which is evident in their entire line being aged at least 12 years using the Solera method (fractional blending where the end result is a mixture of ages).

Summum 12YO Malt Whisky Finish is one of such Rums, but with a wonderful twist. Not only is this Dominican Rum based on old Cuban recipes and aged for dozen years "Solera style" - it is also finished in barrels that previously held Ben Nevis Single Malt Whisky from the Highlands. So, what do you get if you get a Dominican girl and a Scottish lad on a blind date? A rich and sweet relationship with all the tropical spice of a premium Rum and the lingering toffee-malty-peaty flavor of a Highlander. It's a fun mix of centenary formulas of the Dominican Rums and the process of double aging of the prestigious Scottish Whisky.

This Solera Rum with Whisky finish is a soft and warm potion with notes of vanilla, plums and caramel. The presence of the malt from the finish is unmistakable and while this bottle is as smooth and mild like the popular Summum Reserva Especial, there's an extra suave fierceness to this treat.

Smartass Corner:
“Summum Bonum” translates from ancient Latin at “the highest good.” The phrase was introduced by the Roman orator, lawyer, and philosopher Cicero in the first century AD. His influence on language and literature for the last two thousand years has been immense — some say the equal to Shakespeare.

Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
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.

After the revolutionary triumph in 1959, the Oliver clan left Cuba and scattered across the world.
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).
