Next, three year old Jamaican pot-distilled rum is added and blended in Amsterdam where rum blending has been taking place since the early 1700s, when the Netherlands colonized much of the Caribbean.The result is a crystal clear white rum that has, to date, earned 93 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge where it was cited as highly recommended by a judging panel that included Dale DeGroff, Paul Pacult, Jim Meehan, Julie Reiner and David Wondrich.

Denizen Merchants Reserve is the first rum consisting of aged pot still rums from Jamaica and a rare component of strongly aromatic Rhum Grand Arome from Martinique, yielding a flavorful base spirit that will make cocktails shine.The rums used in our blend have been fermented using the finest slow working yeasts, which extend the fermentation time and allow the high ester flavor compounds to fully develop and then aged 8 years in small once-used American oak bourbon barrels giving Denizen Merchants Reserve an unparalleled level of smoothness to rival the worlds best sipping rums. Tasting Notes Intensely aromatic and unapologetically funky, Denizen Merchants Reserve is a deep amber colored molasses rum with a refined taste profile revealing bright fruity caramel flavors balanced by earthy notes that lead to a long smooth spicy finish.Paying homage to the artisan rums crafted by these pioneering merchants, Denizen Merchants Reserve is a superior blend of 8 year old plummer style Jamaican pot still rum and a rare component of Rhum Grande Arome from the Le Galion distillery on the historic French Island of Martinique.According to respected rum cocktail historians, these two styles of rum were blended together by Trader Vic Bergeron in the 3rd iteration of his 1944 Mai Tai recipe to replicate the flavor of the famed J Wray and Nephew 17 and 15 Year Jamaican rums after they were no longer available.
