A great Peruvian rum, born in 1950 the fruit of hard labour. Few could afford to sample it, and it earned the name "por los millonarios", a nod to the exclusive club of individuals then wealthy enough to buy the spirit. Its deep amber colour hides a rich and persistent nose, full of candied fruits, cocoa, coconut, plums and cloves. On the palate, a spicy flash of cloves, then it becomes fully sweet and syrupy, dominated by butter, toffee, raisins, figs, dates, cola, molasses and dark sugar. A pastry-like rum, thick and coating, but which ultimately leaves the palate clean. A charming bottle wrapped in Toquilla straw from the Carludovica Palmata, by the fingers of skilled Peruvian women.
