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.
