The 86 Co. Cana Brava 3 Year Old Panama White Rum (750ml) (Previously $25)

SKU #1115646 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 This bartender-owned brand has created a light, nearly neutral rum perfect for mixing into Papa Dobles and other cocktails. Though barrel--aged for three years and blended with older rums, the appearance is nearly clear, with just a faint golden tinge. Relatively neutral on the nose and palate, this rum almost reads like vodka, with pleasant marshmallow, ginger and lime zest notes on the clean finish. (KN)  (8/2013)

K&L Notes

We are sad to see the 86 Company go, but we're glad to help them move through the last of their product. When industry giant Brown Forman acquired Ford's Gin, they decided to not buy the rum, tequila, and vodka portion of the 86 Co lineup. The end result of that transaction is we were able to help move the remainder of this wonderful brand at insanely low prices. Built by bartenders for bartenders - these are the perfect staples to stock up on for all your mixing needs before they become extinct. Cana Brava Rum is a re-creation of an old style of rum, and as of now is one of a kind on the market. After searching the US for a distillery that could make the perfect mixing rum, Simon Ford (longtime Pernod-Ricard brand ambassador and industry guru) and his partners decided to go to the source. They sought out legendary rum producer Don Pancho Fernandez in Panama. Of course, Don Pancho already makes incredible aged rums at his distillery (Zafra 21-year anyone?), but Simon wanted something different. After months of painstaking work, experimentation and retooling, they achieved the perfect recipe: a recreation of the original Carte Blanca style rum that Bacardi built its name on. Try it in a classic daiquiri!

Here's your new go-to cocktail rum. Made from molasses in Panama and distilled in an old copper column still built in Cincinnati in 1922 then aged for a minimum of three years in ex-Bourbon barrels. The three years of aging mean that it has a nice smoothness and subtle vanilla creaminess with just a nip of spice. The filtration makes sure that the rum is clean and fresh and ready for a party. This is going in my next Mojito.

This is the perfect rum for cocktails. It does have a touch of natural sweetness on its own, but thankfully can mix well with many cocktail ingredients without becoming sickly or overwhelmed. A classic-style white rum, there is nothing over-complicated or funky here. This would be fantastic for Daiquiris and fruit-forward beverages.

A great mixing rum at $14.99; sweet with a dry finish.

Rum cocktail perfection at an insane price point. The 86 Co's lineup was a great deal at the full retail pop of $25 bucks, but at the closeout deal of $14.99, it is utterly impossible to beat. Sadly this is a one time deal since the brand is going away because it wasn't included in the Ford's Gin buyout. Made in the classic Bacardi style - this is exactly what you want for all of your old school rum classics. Just enough mouth feel for texture thanks to the aging, but without overwhelming oak and of course, no added sugar - the fruit does that for you! Super clean and bright making for one of the best cocktails you'll create at home.
