The 86 Co. "Cana Brava" 7 Year Old Reserva Anejo Panama Rum begins its journey with hand harvested sugarcane. The resulting fresh sugarcane molasses are then rushed to fermentation using Don Pancho’s distinct pineapple yeast. The molasses ferment for approximately 24 hours before being distilled in a vintage copper & brass still built in 1922. The result is fresh aguardiente that are aged in used American whiskey barrels for 2-3 years. The aged aguardiente is gently filtered through charcoal before blending with fresh aguardiente to make the base for Cana Brava Rum. This blend is then further aged for seven years in used bourbon casks before being bottled at 45% ABV (90 proof ).
The 86 Co. "Cana Brava" 7 Year Old Reserva Anejo Panama Rum opens with a pleasant but dynamic nose, offering aromas of raw sugarcane, molasses, ripe pineapple, guava and earthy spices. The slightly sweet palate is lively with a robust body with notes of cinnamon, raw cacao, vanilla and subtle flavors of guava and mango. Hints of dark chocolate and oak lingers through the long, dry finish.
"Aged seven years, this honey-hued rum has an enticing vanilla-maple scent and velvety feel. Vanilla, maple and oak glide smoothly into the baking spice-flavored finish. -Versatile for sipping or mixing, this is a solid choice for any home bar; try it in a rum old fashioned." - Wine Enthusiast
