Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This chocolate-flavored dark rum is soft and delicious, with a slightly nutty flavor and a dusty cocoa finish. Mix with cold-brew espresso and coconut milk for a memorable coffee-spiked libation. - K.N.
Selvarey Cacao is the realization of a lifetime of rum making by the world’s foremost Maestro Ronero. Many flavored spirits consist of artificial syrup that masks poor quality neutral alcohol. Yet with Selvarey Cacao, Don Pancho hand selects a delicious five-year-old rum whose inherent flavor is brought out by the infusion of the finest locally sourced chocolate. The most elegant flavored rum around, this extraordinary spirit was bred to raise the bar.
|In much of the world, rum is worshipped as the pinnacle of civilization. Yet many Americans think of the sugarcane spirit as the bottom rung of the liquor ladder. Three brothers teamed up with fellow rum aficionado Bruno Mars to elevate the category to its rightful place alongside the finest vodkas, tequilas and whiskeys. They scoured the world to find a master blender who was up to the challenge.They were determined to create a white rum that was good enough to drink on the rocks and a natural cacao rum that would change what people expect from a flavored spirit. After years of searching, they finally found Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez, the legendary Maestro Ronero who’d carved out a distillery from the jungles of Panama. Together they created Selvarey, a rum to evolve your spirits.
