The spirit of our family and our father’s vision, brought together in a unique rum.

Throughout his life, Mr. José Quevedo, third generation of rum masters at Destilerías Aldea, carefully chose -during each harvest- 15 exceptional barrels, each one special due to its origin and previous life. 15 barrels to chisel, little by little, extraordinary liquids nourished by oak, wine, brandy and saltpeter.

More than 20 years ago, Mr. José glimpsed the uniqueness of signature rums, made only with rum from fresh sugar cane juice, and matured in a single barrel throughout its life, but also infused by the soft Alisios winds and the brave Atlantic that hits at the bottom of the cliff where our distillery relies.

OUR FIRST SINGLE CASK

We proudly present the first SINGLE CASK from our distillery: DON JOSÉ. A limited edition paying tribute to our father’s mastery, bottled with care in 257 unique bottles. An exceptional liquid that has rested for 20 years in a vivid oak barrel formerly used to age red wines, resulting an unusual rum.

A FEW DROPS OF DON JOSÉ

It’s attractive copper color – with mahogany reflections – is the prelude to an impressive display of aromas and flavors that will not leave you indifferent.

NOSE

A captivating aroma of toasted caramel, creamy vanilla, and smoky oak reveals itself, with subtle notes of ripe tropical fruits and warm spices.

MOUTH

A silky and rich texture that envelops the palate in complex sensations with flavors of caramel, dark chocolate and raisins, on a background of rich nuances of nutmeg, cinnamon and touches of roasted coffee on a bed of balsamic notes, perfectly integrated and balanced.

FINAL

Long, smooth and tasty, leaving a warm, persistent and satisfying sensation on the palate, where memories of burnt caramel and candied fruits are once again evoked.
