Description

Ak Zanj means ?With Angels,? a reference to the Angel’s Share, the spirit stolen by thirsty angels each year, as the rum matures in barrels. Under the tropical weather of Haiti, the Angels are especially thirsty, and their share can be as high as 10 percent annually. The more they drink, the more mature and complex the rum.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Beautiful, smooth dark shade of mahogany

Nose: Aromas are moderately complex, first comes a sweet caramel bouquet, then heavier aromas of brown sugar, butterscotch, subdued earthy scents of sweet sugarcane, mild tobacco leaves and vanilla.

Mouth: Roundness of caramel, butterscotch, with a red fruit.

Finish: The finish is dry and medium long.

Exceptionally smooth and well-rounded with delightful flavors that explode on your tongue.

In 1824, Dr. Johann Siegart, a German doctor serving as Surgeon-General of Simon Bolivar's army in Venezuela, was working to find a medicine that would enhance the appetite and digestive well-being of his soldiers. Dr. Siegart eventually settled upon a mix of herbs and spices that he called ?Amargo Aromatico? ? today, this world-famous concoction is known simply as Angostura Bitters.

Building on his early success, Dr. Siegart established the House of Angostura in the eponymous Venezuelan city, where he began to manufacture his bitters on a grander scale (the business would later become the sole purveyor of bitters to the King of Prussia, Spain, and King George V). As he continued to expand, Dr. Siegart, along with his younger brother and his son, moved the House of Angostura to Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1876 and began producing rum.

The rums of the House of Angostura? are a treasured legacy, a tribute to the evolution of the rum industry in the Caribbean and the men and women who nurtured it. The House of Angostura? owns the only rum distillery in Trinidad today, and controls its rum manufacturing process from end to end. Our rums are blended by masters with years of experience and training in original traditions, who closely maintain guarded formulas and techniques. Our blenders are involved at every stage to ensure the highest quality and consistency, from molasses selection through to cask selection.?

Next time you?re pouring rum cocktails for your cohorts, serve up this nugget of rum trivia: Bacardi 151 gets its name for its proof level of 151. At 75.5% alcohol by volume, that's nearly double the level of typical rum. Wowza. All that alcohol means it's highly flammable, so be responsible friends. Balance Bacardi 151's punch by using it sparingly in sweet, fruity drinks, such as Hurricanes or Rum Punches.

Exquisite limited edition rum to celebrate Joy Spence's 20th Anniversary as Master Blender. Aged 25 years and includes rum aged 35 years. Opens with trademark delicate orange peel, ginger, and spice. Finishes with warm vanilla, coffee, and toasted oak. Exceptionally smooth.

Savory spices are carefully blended together to achieve a bold flavor.
