A fine blend of premium aged Rums from the Philippines with a fruit and herb profile.

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.

At first, the name "Tanduay CLX" was a bit of a mystery. But once you remember that "CLX" is the number "160" in Roman numerals and that this blend of aged Rums was released in 2014 — the distillery’s 160th anniversary year — it all makes sense. Tanduay CLX is a special edition created by master blender Faustino Munnariz. There is no age statement, but we are familiar with Tanduay Superior — their twelve year-old Rum — and the flavor profile is very similar. We suspect that this is a blend of both older and younger Tanduay Rums with an average age similar to the Superior.

Smartass Corner:
In the Philippine dialect, the word "tanduay" refers to a lowland area or peninsula like the one where the distillery is located. A similar word, "tanguay" refers to a place where Palm Wine is made. This makes "Tanduay" the perfect choice for a Philippine distillery.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
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.
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 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.’
