Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Best known as the brand backed by musician Bruno Mars, this versatile white rum has a light, almost neutral aroma and flavor, suggesting coconut and marshmallow. It’s a blend of three- and five-year-old rums, made in antique copper stills. - K.N.
Born in the jungles of Panama, Selvarey White is a blend of three and five-year-old rums, distilled in 1922 copper column stills, aged in bourbon casks and carbon filtered to remove the color without losing the deep flavors imparted from the aging process. The 3-year-old rum brings youth and vibrancy which is then rounded off by the full-bodied richness of the mature 5-year-old. Unlike many white rums, Selvarey has been crafted with the distinct goal of being fine enough to sip on the rocks.
|In much of the world, rum is worshipped as the pinnacle of civilization. Yet many Americans think of the sugarcane spirit as the bottom rung of the liquor ladder. Three brothers teamed up with fellow rum aficionado Bruno Mars to elevate the category to its rightful place alongside the finest vodkas, tequilas and whiskeys. They scoured the world to find a master blender who was up to the challenge.They were determined to create a white rum that was good enough to drink on the rocks and a natural cacao rum that would change what people expect from a flavored spirit. After years of searching, they finally found Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez, the legendary Maestro Ronero who’d carved out a distillery from the jungles of Panama. Together they created Selvarey, a rum to evolve your spirits.
