HAVANA, Cuba, Feb 21 (ACN) Havana Club International S.A. launched on Thursday in Havana the limited edition of the ultra-prestige rum Tributo 2020, a limited edition of only 2.500 bottles worldwide.
The drink pays tribute to the continuous aging and blending process; for its creation a small amount of the reserves of previous Tributo editions was selected and blended with a batch of 100 exclusive barrels.
Tributo 2020 is a fine and luxurious rum of great depth and complexity with a touch of smoke as well as notes of dark chocolate, coffee and spices, the experts declared.
Beginning next month, it will be on sale in more than 20 markets at a price of 400 euros; for Cuba a total of 350 bottles have been allocated to be sold in the Casas del Habano, specialized liquor stores, high standard hotels and Duty Free, referred Ahmed Alvarez, sales and marketing director in Cuba.
The bottle is presented in a mahogany box with references to the Art Deco style that recalls the 1920s; each one is numbered and bears the signature of the master rum maker Asbel Morales.
Tributo collection began in 2016 as a tribute to the knowledge of the masters of rum; in 2017 sugar cane and Cuban brandy were valued, the 2018 edition was dedicated to natural aging and white oak barrels, while that of 2019 was dedicated to the art of blending and the latest generations of masters.
With Tributo 2020, a full cycle of the process of making this rum has been closed, which does not mean that there will be any surprises related to it later on.
