Nicaragua Rum 19 Year Old Cadenhead's Green Label

Wm. Cadenhead may be Scotland’s oldest independent bottler Scotch, but its connections to the rum industry are just as lengthy. The company was founded in 1842 by George Duncan. His brother William Cadenhead joined the company in 1952, taking over after George’s death in 1958. William had a relation called Robert Cadenhead who owned a rum merchant business in Liverpool and London, and the two companies were amalgamated upon Robert's death. Wm. Cadenhead got into the whisky bottling business after 1904, when William's nephew Robert Duthie took over, and since its sale to J&A Mitchell in 1972, Wm. Cadenhead has become one of the most sought after names on the independent scene, and was one of the earliest brands to begin promoting single distillery bottlings of rum.

This is a bottling of a 19 year old rum from Nicaragua. As there is only one distillery in Nicaragua, therese no prizes for guessing it is CLDN.

The Compania Licorera de Nicaragua distillery (CLDN) was established in 1937 to produce the Flor de Cana rum brand, first bottled in the late 19th century. The distillery was extensively upgraded in 1996 and is one of the most modern rum producing facilities in the world. It operates a three-column continuous still, and the aged rum is laid down for a minimum of four years in American oak casks. The ability of CLDN to continue distilling during the turbulent periods of Nicaraguan history during the 1980s and 1990s means that it has one of the largest stock inventories of aged rum in the world, meaning it can spare a lot of casks for independent labels like this.
