La Marielita Rum is aged in Bourbon curated American white oak casks for at least 18 Years with no additives or artificial flavorings. With a burnt toffee and oak aroma, the rum gradually transitions into cacao flavors as it grazes the palate; with layers of vanilla, coffee bean and orange blossom lingering, it then evolves into tenors of hazelnut and chocolate and ends with a smooth and balanced finish.

La Marielita Rum is inspired by the 1980 Mariel Boatlift, an exodus initiated by a political movement where thousands of Cubans sought refuge at the Peruvian embassy. At six-years-old, Janet Diaz-Bonilla, alongside her parents, embarked on a journey from Mariel, Cuba to Key West, Florida, only to be transferred upon arrival to a holding camp for 53 days before being awarded their freedom. Janet embarked on this journey to craft La Marielita Rum to honor and celebrate hard work, dedication to family, and gratitude for freedom.

You're reviewing:La Marielita 18 Years Old Rum

La Marielita Rum launches the inaugural blend of the premium hand-crafted blended Panamanian rum. Led by Janet Diaz-Bonilla, CEO, founder, and the first Cuban American immigrant woman to found and own a rum brand, La Marielita brought together a team that defines and embodies Cuban heritage. Together Janet and world-renowned Cuban Master of Rum, Francisco José "Don Pancho" Fernández Pérez, skillfully formulated a rum with a distinctly unique bouquet of aromatic flavors distilled in Las Cabras de Pesé, Panama.

Acclaimed Cuban American artist, Humberto Benitez, shares the founder's roots and understood the importance of illustrating an image that encompassed the sentiments and authenticity of La Marielita's story for the bottle's label.
