A step up in Rum celebrating one-hundred and fifty years of Rum production.

The original distillery that would become Tanduay was founded in Hagonoy, Philippines, in 1854. Let’s just say that record-keeping in the Philippines was problematic at the time. But we do know that there was a series of mergers and acquisitions and primary distillation was moved to Manila in the early 1900s and the grandchildren of the original known managers reacquired the distillery and brand through their Elizalde & Company, Inc. The business continued to flourish, becoming a beloved producer of Rums and other Spirits in the Philippines. The mammoth LT Group purchased the entire operation in 1988, which still produces some of the most popular Spirits in Southeast Asia.

The term "sesquicentennial" refers to a 150th anniversary. Tanduay 1854 was released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Rum production at Tanduay. It immediately started wining awards — eight of them so far — and became very popular, so this blend of premium aged Tanduay was added to the core line-up the following year.

Smartass Corner:
Relatively unknown in the West, Tanduay is the largest Rum producer in the world, selling more than twenty million cases per year. Bacardi is #2 with seventeen million cases, and Captain Morgan is a distant third with less than twelve million cases.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
This Rum has a perfume-like aroma of mixed exotic fruits over a faint hint of vanilla.

The flavor profile builds on the fruit aroma, adding a cooked sugar note, mown hay, and vanilla followed by white pepper, a hit of citrus, and more menthol.

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).
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.
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.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
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.’
