Bermudez 1852 5 Anos de Anejamiento

Earlier last week I received a welcome call from Westway L. LTD., who are the importers of the Bermudez rums in my home province of Alberta. They had suggested to me about six months ago that they would be bringing the Bermudez rums into Western Canada, and as a way of introducing the rums into this area would like for me to review a few samples of the range. The rum has arrived and will be released in Alberta with a few weeks.
The Ron Bermúdez Company, (as I guessed from the label on the bottle) has a long history that stretches back to 1852. This is almost as old as the Dominican Republic itself, and I think it is easy to suggest that the Ron Bermudez Company is an important part of the history of the Dominican Republic. Don Erasmo Bermudez apparently created the company’s first rum, sold as Bitter Panacea which quickly became extremely popular and provided the foundation for the company’s success.
The Company is currently in its fourth generation of management, still represented by the Bermudez family. Don Carlos Alberto Bermúdez Pippa, is currently the management leader for the company. At the time of this writing I have been unable to access the Ron Bermudez website but I leave the link here in case access is available at a future time.
Here is an excerpt from my review:
“…The rum flavours are there in spades, make no mistake; rich caramel and butterscotch flavours lead out with soft ripe fruit following quickly. A touch of citrus zest finds its way into the oak spices and the result is quite delicious. …”
