Paranubes Oaxaca Anejo Rum
Paranubes Rum is made by wild fermenting the fresh pressed juice of sugarcane grown without pesticide or fertilizer in the rich soil of master distiller Jose Luis Carrera’s farm. Distilled to proof with no additives, this rum - or aguardiente de caña as it's known regionally, is exactly what you would find lost in the cloud forest of the Sierra Mazateca mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Anejo bottling takes the cult favorite unaged rum and ages in new American oak for 18 months, before bottling at full proof, in this case 53.8% abv.
Soft aromas of oak linger over the earthy, olive filled notes of the base spirit, with vanilla and spices joining the show as well. On the palate, tropical fruit mingles with dried fig, allspice, and a melange of wild herbs. A wonderfully full and intense aged cane spirit.
