A blend of 40% pure juice rum (aged 12 years) and 60% molasses rum (aged 5 to 7 years), Emperor Deep Blue Palo Cortado Finish is a unique experiment in maturation. The rums were blended and then put into old Palo Cortado sherry casks for a further eight months. Once bottled, the rum was lowered sixty metres into an underwater cellar on Ushant Island off the coast of Brittany. According to the distillers, "underwater aged rums differentiate themselves from their counterparts by demonstrating more aromatic and fruity freshness, more balance and roundness, less acidity and the better preservation of some properties". For ten months at a temperature of 10 to 13°C, without oxygen and with six bars of pressure, the bottles acquire a unique appearance and arrive covered in marine concretions and sub-terranian 'cellar bloom'. The rum itself boasts notes of vanilla, caramelised fruits and sherry. 1250 bottles are on offer globally. 40% Alc./Vol. Very limited stocks.
