New Rum Named for Panamanian Boxer Roberto Duran Coming to America

    Ron Duran was created as a tribute to one of the greatest boxers of all time, this rum was especially crafted by Don Pancho Fernandez, one of the greatest master distiller blender.  This is a dicodomy that brings a fine rum named for a really fine boxer.  The wonderful award winning flavor has been achieved with a blend of rum aged for 12 years in white oak whiskey barrels.  Ron Duran Rum has truly captured the essence of patience, passions, perseverance and triumph.

     Balanced with a complex profile that reveals aromas of oak, molasses, cinnamon, toffee and creamy vanilla. This incredibly smooth rum has a delightfully long finish accomplished by the most renowned master blender, Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez.   Duran rum uses the best molasses from Panama and is distilled in copper columns using a proprietary yeast from the master blender.  Best served neat or on the rocks.

     It will be a pleasure to have Ron Duran be the guest of honor for today's "Rat Key Rum Taster's Association" tasting.   I am looking forward to the get together and seed what everyone feels about this wonderful expression.
