The superb rum in this bottle has not only been distilled in wood, but aged in wood for an additional 15 years! It is the world’s only super-aged rum, or for that matter that is still distilled in wood using the old, inefficient, handcrafted way in opposition to the modern method that employs semi-automatic metal column distillation.The PUSSER’S Aged 15 Year is exceptional and equivalent to the finest cognac or brandy in every way.
Most all rums today are distilled in modern continuous stills which are very efficient, stripping out about 98.5% of the alcohol from the wash. To the contrary, the wooden still operates at about 67%, which greatly increases cost. To this, one must add the loss that occurs during the aging process. At the end of 15 years of aging in wood, only about 7% of the original rum remains in the barrel.
The balance will have evaporated into the air. Thus it took the equivalent of many bottles of ordinary rum to make this one bottle of 15 Year Old PUSSER’S! The balance will have evaporated into the air. Thus it took the equivalent of about 16 bottles of rum to produce this single bottle of PUSSER’S Aged 15 Years
