Eximo means ”to free.” Taking cues from Cuba’s rich history in the golden era, FACUNDO Eximo is crafted with striking sun rays on the bottle, and the X refers to the 10-year aged rum inside. Eximo is a perfectly balanced combination of rums, each aged a minimum of 10 years. What sets Eximo apart is that medium and full-bodied rums are blended before they’re aged, then put into casks and left untouched. Maturation in white oak barrels for more than a decade allows the individual flavors to combine perfectly.
