A blend of matured Jamaican Rum, aged for a minimum of 12 years in Bourbon casks and finished in selected “wine casks” in the Alps. Rum-Aficionados award the typical richness of flavours of a “Jamaican” and are though astonished by the elegant and smooth finish for a 45%vol Rum from Jamaica.
Typical nose, raisins, roasted nuts, slightly tannins, a breath of caramel. At the palate wellbalanced aromas, spicy, slight pepper marks, some tobacco, roasted coffee, dry fruits, long finish.

“Villa Maund” is a hunting lodge built on a spur of the Alps by the English mountaineer Sir
John Oakley Maund, one of the first to climb the east summit of the 4,000 meters (13,000 ft)
high Les Droites in the Mont Blanc massif. After his death in 1902, the German Crown Prince
William von Hohenzollern was tenant of the estate. His celebrity guests included Queen Elizabeth II. From 1995 to 2007 the Vorarlberg artist and campaigner Paul Renner lived in the Villa Maund. Among his guests were Zaha Hadid, Ferran Adrià, Günter Brus and the infamous “Hell Fire Touring Club”.
