Today we have a new addition to Caña Brava's line of rums. The 86 Company announced the release of Caña Brava 7-Year-Old Reserva Añeja Rum. This is their first dark aged spirit in the portfolio. Holding to the standards of the award-winning, Caña Brava 3-Year-Old Carta Blanca Rum. This expression was distilled and blended by legendary master of rum “Don Pancho” Fernandez in Panama. There was a large amount of input from the professional bartenders in the spirit to work as a replacement for rye whiskey in classic and contemporary cocktail development.
Caña Brava 7 begins with a selection of young and fresh rums handpicked by the "Don Pancho". The rums were blended to create base of aged rums which is then put back into used bourbon casks and further aged util they have reached seven years before bottling.
“Caña Brava 7's character emphasizes the fresh cut sugarcane flavors associated with their style while the aging has added depth and richness you would expect from rum with this age. The surprisingly dry finish and higher than normal proof.” according to Robert A. Burr.
