A Pirate's Life: Maison Villeviert Bumbu XO Rum
Comprising a myriad of worldwide influences, the Maison Villevert Bumbu XO Rum is a blend of different maturities reaching up to 18 years in age.
Distilled and aged in Panama in an ancestral distillery dating from 1890, the rum is matured in American Bourbon barrels and then finished in Spanish sherry barrels. The imparting of flavor and aroma is therefore unlike any other.
The Spanish casks are made from white oak, and have been sourced in the region of Andalusia, which is equally famous for its sherry.
The sugar cane is locally sourced in Panama, and carefully selected from the finest producers by the Master Distiller in a still that dates from 1912.
For an entirely new experience with a bottle that harks back to the days of pirates roaming the seven seas, the Bumbu XO is a must-try.
Presentation of the bottle
A thick, high quality matte black glass decanter will certainly turn heads. The tarnished metal X and silver Caribbean map are screen-printed onto the back. The bottle has a rustic, oversized Bumbu cork that harks back to the days of pirates.
Bottled at 40% ABV, the Bumbu XO will be adored pure, but also with a great cigar. It also works fabulously in cocktails.
