Summum Reserva Especial Rum, Dominican RepublicSummum is a latin word which describes the absolute excellence, the maximum and is a perfect description of this Dominican rum. Created by the master distiller Juan Alberto & Alvarez, who has extensive experience in the art of rum and is well known in the Caribbean. Summum rum is aged using the solera process for ageing spirits, in which barrels containing older spirits are topped off and married with younger spirit from other barrels as the angel's share takes its toll. Extremely smooth, complex and warm with rich and enticing aromas of vanilla, prunes and roasted caramel entice you in while a second sniff around the glass finds notes of oak and vanilla, the effect of so many years spent in oak casks. A sip from the glass reveals a sweet, smoothness. There is a lot of vanilla at the front, followed by sweet dry almond notes on the mid-palate. The body is smooth and silky on the tongue, giving the rum an incredibly pleasant mouth-feel. Slight alcohol and rum heat on the finish with a long tongue tingling spiciness. Learn More£54.50
