- Keeping level Ready to drink
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Between 1700 and 1796, it was considered a crime to consume this rum in Spain! Indeed, Felipe V de Bourbon had forbidden it. As soon as it arrived on the Spanish market, the Ron Prohibido put all the Spanish rums in the shade, to such an extent that the King of Spain had to take strict decisions to reverse the sales.
Domain and appellation
El Ron Prohibido is a Mexican Solera 15 rum.
- Manufacturing: This rum nicknamed “habanero” (from the Havana) is made from molasses, resulting of the refining of sugar cane. It is raised following the Solera method. American oak tanks are arranger in tiers, the ones containing the oldest rum at the bottom, the ones with the youngest at the top of it. This system ensures a homogenization of the production. The tanks used have already been used to elaborate a wine, which will bring new aromas to the rum.
