Ron Prohibido - 'The Forbidden Rum' - is a unique premium Latino rum from Mexico.
Made in a traditional 12 year solera with a unique combination of column still rums, Ron Prohibido was shipped to Spain in the 17th century in used sweet wine barrels where the distinctive sweet and bitter taste it acquired during the voyage was much appreciated... so much so that local producers in Spain persuaded King Felipe V to ban it.
Now, over 300 years later, this delicious rum is available in the UK for the first time.
Appearance: Dark brown with hints of red.
Aroma: Firstly, intense aromas of dried fruits, raisins and prunes, followed by tones of vanilla, walnut, butter, chocolate, and coffee.
Taste: Raisins, prune, walnut wood, with hints of chocolate and coffee in a distinctly bitter-sweet combination.
Finish: Long, silky, with a touch of caramel and a pleasant hint of bitterness on the finish.
