Casa Santana 12yo TBRC

The first bottling of Casa Santana rum from Colombia from That Boutique-y Rum Company, and it's a fascinating expression which was matured for 12 years before bottling. Very satisfying stuff, with some unexpected flavours coming through. The label is just as curious, featuring some sort of sorceress winning at pontoon while ominously holding a fireball in her hand. Well, you wouldn't try you hardest to win when faced with the constant threat of a fireball, would you? (Even if you've got one of those cool visor hats!) Oh, and there's a massive Andean Condor, the national bird of Colombia, also losing the game and wearing a snazzy hat.

Batch 1 is a release of 3,766 bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Toffee oak, soft vanilla and brown sugar lead among touches of salinity, sweet red chilli heat and hot tyres. Gingerbread adds a little aromatic spice among plenty of grilled tropical fruit and raw honey before ground black pepper and vegetal, almost Mezcal-esque notes develop way below.

Palate Through melting butter, creamy banana pie, a little salted caramel and plenty more heaps of exotic fruit comes rich baking spice, wasabi and just a touch of oak char.

Finish A long and confident finish. Thick caramel, dry nutmeg spice and some engine oil.

Overall All kinds of brilliant and bizarre, it’s a Captain Beefheart of a rum.

Reviews for Casa Santana 12 Year Old (That Boutique-y Rum Company)
I think I like it?
This is curious stuff to be sure. Straight out of the bottle it's a bit swamped by the amount of alcohol. I tried a (little too large) lump of ice and all I got was enough oak to pucker my lips, but once the ice had melted and warmed up a little it hit the sweet spot, with fun-size Mars bars, peach and some sort of berry coming out. It reminds me a bit of a sloe and blackberry rum liqueur we made a couple of years ago - but without the ton of sugar.
I'd be interested to try this blend at a 40% bottle strength - TBRC might just manage to sell a 70cl bottle for the same price then!
On the whole I very much like it - I knocked off a star (half a star really - call it 4½ stars) because I thought that extra alcohol got in the way a bit.

This Rum is amazing the description above is spot on, i was drinking it last night and have come on this morning to order another bottle. I'd forgotten how much I'd paid for it and can't believe it's only £30/0.5L has to be a massive bargain!!!!
