SelvaRey Owner's Reserve Rum
The pinnacle of the SelvaRey collection, Owner's Reserve is a premium aged rum hand-selected from the deep cellars of Master Distiller Don 'Pancho' Francisco Fernandez. The 'Owner' in Owner's Reserve, Bruno Mars, tasked the rum-making legend with blending his finest aged rums across the distillery's best vintage blends to make a highly nuanced, deliciously smooth offering that would rival the best-aged rums on the market. A pure expression of Panama's unique terroir, this 40% ABV sipping rum combines 15-and 25-year-old blends, with a profound weight yet striking elegance. It begins with aromas of caramelized brown sugar, pipe tobacco, Pedro Ximenez sherry, and orange peel while finishing with endlessly silky notes of baked apple crumble and roasted Brazil nut.
In the wine world, it is well known that in certain years an ideal balance of heat and rain conspires to make a legendary vintage Champagne or the most nuanced Bordeaux. The same climatic dance happens in Panama, where once or twice a decade the perfect weather conditions bring forth a superlative rum that is the purest expression of one of the most unique terroirs on earth. Don Pancho blends these rare vintage rums which have been aging between fifteen and twenty-five years.
