Auténtico Nativo is a new Panama-based rum brand that has launched its first three aged expressions. Headquartered in Panama City, Panama, Aloha Assets Corp. is committed to supplying the market with the finest high-quality rums. These rums are known for their near-perfect balance, a testament to the fine art of the master blender. This is another of the fine rums in a long line of creations of Francisco "Don Pancho" Fernandez .
Aloha’s seasoned professionals have successful histories in the exportation and promotion of wine and spirits. Auténtico Nativo 15 Years is available in select European Markets now. Auténtico Nativo 15 Years, Auténtico Nativo 20 Years and Auténtico Nativo Overproof, 108 abv, have been launched by the brand, which is the result of a partnership between Ultra Premium Brands and Aloha Assets Corp.
On the nose, the Nativo’s Overproof expression is “nicely balanced with toffee, vanilla, and dark fruits”, while the 15-year-old expression has notes of toasted nuts and oak. The 20-year-old rum’s aroma is described as “dark roasted nuts, caramelized peaches and bananas”, with a flavor of “whole nuts, toasted cedar and oak”. The brand’s 15- and 20- year-old expressions have been aged in barrels that formerly held Kentucky Bourbon.
The branding for Auténtico Nativo is said to represent the rum’s authentic production, while the label emphasizes its “contemporary identity”. Bottled at 40% abv, Auténtico Nativo 15 Years is available now in select European markets. The entire portfolio will be available later this year. The rums will be distributed by Ultra Premium Brands in the Czech Republic and other selected markets.
