You’ve been enjoying Vizcaya VXOP Cask 21 rum, the ultimate sipping rum, for years. As an aficionado of fine spirits, chances are that there’s a bottle of VXOP in your bar right now. Well, it’s time to make room for a new variety of Vizcaya—introducing Vizcaya Cask 12, a dark rum that possesses the same rich character and high quality as VXOP Cask 21, but with a slightly lighter body that makes it a mixologist’s dream.
Vizcaya Cask 12 is meticulously crafted with the same superb ingredients and traditional methods as Cask 21. After being distilled from the finest of sugar cane—unlike inferior rums, which are made from molasses—Cask 12 is aged for six years in premium oak barrels and then masterfully blended. The finished spirit sings with a rich, complex bouquet; subtle notes of vanilla, cocoa and maple; and a buttery finish.
Due to its slightly lighter body, Cask 12 is also an extraordinarily versatile rum, and can be enjoyed alone or as a component of delicious cocktails. Try it in all the classic rum drinks, or simply splash some over a few cubes of ice and savor the exquisite flavor.
Another way to enjoy Vizcaya Cask 12 dark rum is to pair it with a meal—think tropical tastes, like seafood, coconut and fruit. Of course, you can never go wrong with the classic combination of a fine cigar and a premium rum, and Vizcaya Cask 12 fits that bill to perfection. Relax, enjoy your cigar, and let the heady, spicy aroma of Vizcaya fill your senses.
It’s an exciting time for those who truly appreciate fine spirits. Versatile Vizcaya Cask 12 rum, a premium sipping rum that also works wonderfully in cocktails, will become an exemplary addition to your rum repertoire.
