Here you get the popular and classic Ron Quorhum 30 Aniversario with a further maturation on barrels that previously contained port wine. Port wine is made in Portugal and is a popular fortified wine type in line with sherry and madeira. These wines are added a neutral spirits after fermentation, which means that they contain more alcohol than ordinary wine. Throughout history, they added spirits to the port wine to prepare them for the long journey to England, previously the main export market. Port wine therefore holds an alcohol content between 14-20% and is available in both sweet and dry versions. A good vintage wine typically tastes of red berries, marzipan, plums, chocolate and vanilla - flavor elements that work well with rums. Port wine barrels are therefore suitable for rum.
Normally, port wine is stored on large oak barrels which can contain about 500-550 liters of port wine. If you empty the cask, there will still be port wine leftovers in the structure of the wood, which is passed on to the rum. This means that the rum that is now on the used port wine cask adopts some of the flavor elements of the port wine. This is called a finish and Ron Quorhum 30 Aniversario Oporto Finish is a shining example of that.
With the taste of the classic elements of Ron Quorhum 30 Aniversario such as cream caramel, honey, orange peel, oak and coffee, the reddish and sweet flavors of the port wine cask are integrated in the most beautiful way. The fresh citrus elements found in the original rum are accompanied by a deep and characteristic character. So, if you are a fan of Ron Quorhum 30 Aniversario, the new Ron Quorhum 30 Aniversario Oporto Finish is a must-try!
