El Ron Prohibido Rum


El Ron Prohibido Rum

In the year of 1700, Spanish ships arrived to the colonies in the New World loaded with products from Spain. One popular product was sweet wine stored in barrels, which were later emptied after use. These empty barrels were filled with Chinguirito, which is rum that was produced in Mexico and shipped back to Spain, it absorbed wood flavors and aroma from the sweet wine barrels, which gave it very special characteristics. The resulting product became very popular in Spain and local producers saw it as a threat to the sales of their products. Consequently, the King of Spain prohibited the production of this rum in the New World. Chinguirito was also known as Habanero because the last stop on the way back to Spain from the New World was Habana, Cuba.

The bottle has a kraken-like ringlet on the neck which you can just about grip and hold through using your thumb and forefinger. Coupled with this is a rather fancy seal with a little wax effect embossed plastic seal to the front which denotes that this rum is a 12 Year Solero Blend. So we know the oldest of the rum in this bottle is 12 years old, that would suggest that the majority of this is unlikely to be aged for 12 years. It is bottled at 40% ABV.


Nose: Crushed walnuts, brown sugar and waves of vanilla. Following that, you'll start to get plenty of raisin and prune notes.

Palate: Viscous and mouth-coating. Honey, dark chocolate and more raisins. Black coffee, nutmeg and oak.

Finish: Strong coffee notes remain.

Overall: Enjoy it neat to get the most out of this distinctly rich rum.
