Totalwine is a large online retailer located in Sacramento (USA), and they are the largest independent retailer of fine wines in the US. Luckily for us rum lovers they also stock a couple of hundred kinds of rum.

Totalwine offers a pretty representative cross section of whats available in the world of rum today. Prices range from around $8 for a full bottle of white rum through to $1900 bottle of Puerto Rican ‘Reserva De La Familia Serralles’. For those of us who are on a lower budget -or who just want to try as many rums as possible- they also have large array of small sampler bottles.

Industria De Licores Del Valledistillery

Published on April 10, 2016

Producer of the Marques del Valle Brand.

Founded in 1921 with the help of Spanish distilling expert Diego Zafra Delgado. It started life as an income generator for the local government, but was privatized in 1945, the same year in which they started planning a new distillery with modern equipment. Work started in 1953 and continued uptill 1956. On the 7th of august of that year a couple of truckloads of dynamite accidentaly exploded next to the plant, but luckily nobody got injured, and the distillery survived.
The distillery was updated in 1976 and 1977, and in 1980 the company acquired the San Martin distillery. All of the production was moved to the San Martin plant in 2003, and nowadays the site uses three collum stills with a total capacity of 60.000 liters of alcohol a day.

Ron Viejo de Caldas 15rum

Published on March 31, 2016

Premium matured Colombian rum made by Industria Licorera de Caldas.

Contrary to what you might think when reading the front label, Viejo de Caldas 15 is a blend of matured rums between eight and seventeen years old. It’s a very decent rum, with surprisingly many fruity notes aromas and a relatively sweet taste.

Many rums tend to develop in character when the bottle get closer to the half way mark, and this one is no exception. The initial one dimensional fruityness develops into notes of soft fruits and pears.

Like many of the rums made by ILC it’s bottled at a pretty low 35% abv, which is the standard in their home market of Colombia.
