Our XO Reserve, the basis for a number of our finest rums, has been especially blended to create A.H. Riise XO Reserve – Thin Blue Line Denmark Rum to celebrate and honour the essential work carried out by the Danish Police Force. This particular blend is a perfect marriage of a blend of rums from both the Caribbean and South America whose ages range from between seven and twenty-one years, so already you can sense this is no ordinary rum.
The secret to the consistency of all rums from A.H. Riise is the environment in which the casks are stored. If rum matures too quickly, the flavours can be harsh and underdeveloped, almost immature. By allowing our casks to rest in temperature-consistent environment, the rum is allowed to take its time to reach its full potential, drawing it’s rich and vibrant colour, along with hints of tannin, from the oak casks it is stored in.
Aroma: Leather, with a slight hint of sea fog and a herbal overtone.
Taste: Complex and intense, with a balanced blend of vanilla, caramel, yellow fruits and herbs.
Aftertaste: Dried tannin combined with leather and tobacco.
