In collaboration with Barcelo Rum, E. Leon Jimenes Rum was first bottled in 2013 to commemorate the 110th Anniversary of La Aurora Cigars, and to celebrate the Company’s extraordinary history.
The aging process for E. Leon Jimenes is quite unique, consisting of the first eight years in virgin American white oak barrels, with the final two years in French oak sherry tun.
The result is a one of a kind experience where notes of toffee, honey, roasted almonds, coffee, caramel, spicy sweetness, and sherry come together in an extra smooth and balanced taste.
Leon Jimenes Rum has earned a score of 97 points with the Beverage Testing Institute, and in 2020, a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (where 1,500 - 2,000 spirits compete, with no more than 10 Double Gold Medal awards given to a category).
And, if that wasn’t enough, E. Leon Jimenes Rum is championed in the US by NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone - who as its official ambassador, is proud to stand behind this Rum, one that he proudly pairs with his Barrel Aged by Karl Malone Cigars for a winning combination.
Needless to say, we are very proud of our E. Leon Jimenes Rum…Enjoy!!!
