Bhakta 1990 Jamaican Rum
New World Spirit, Old World Cask Finish. BHAKTA 1990 Rum unifies two exquisite single Vintages of Jamaican cane into a one-of-a-kind, elite spirit elevating the best of New World craft through the ancient artisanship of the Old World. Hailing from two singular distilleries, BHAKTA 1990 Jamaican Rum blends 1985 25 Year Jamaican column still rum from Clarendon/Monymusk (CHP) with 1990 23 Year Jamaican pot still rum from Appleton Estates (APEL).
Fortuitously coupled in 2014, this exquisite blend of column- and pot-stilled rum enjoyed a further three years aging in second-fill MGP bourbon and rye barrels before earning its signature cask finish.
This rich, deep, and opulent barrel-aged rum bears an extraordinary age statement backed up by craft pedigree and unrivaled complexity.
Unearthed by Raj Peter Bhakta, these barrels’ aging journey culminated in The BHAKTA Method — through which this spirit met its final finish in casks of ultra-rare Single Vintage BHAKTA 1976 and 1980 Armagnac.
Two vintages. Two distinct distillation methods. Two distinguished distilleries, bound by history. Five unique barrel finishes.
With exactly 1500 bottles released worldwide, a rum this exquisite comes only once a lifetime.
