Brugal 1888 Rum-Cuba Libre-Santo Libre Cocktails

Brugal 1888 Rum-Cuba Libre-Santo Libre Cocktails

I recently stumbled across Brugal 1888 Rum.
Brugal 1888 is a genuinely impressive rum. It is produced in the Dominican Republic and combines the rich flavours of bourbon and sherry casks through a double-aging process.
This double aging process means that 1888 is first matured in hand-picked ex-bourbon American oak casks, then in European oak, first-fill sherry casks. The bourbon is certainly recognisable, and in Brugals’ own words; “This blend of two worlds gives 1888 a complex yet balanced spirit that stimulates the senses and evolves in the glass.”

Loch Lomond Whisky is a Highland single malt distillery in Alexandria, Scotland. The master blender is Michael Henry, who created the selection of single malt, single grain and blended whiskies under the guidance of renowned master blender John Peterson.
The distillery uses cylindrical copper pot stills that permit production of alcohol at a higher ABV than usual, up to 90% ABV. This allows a wide range of flavours that can be selected to produce the final single malt.
