Exquisito means ”exquisite,” referring to the exquisite rums held inside. The embodiment of the culture, music and fashion of Havana’s heyday, the bottle celebrates the vivaciousness of this golden era. Sublimely smooth and effortlessly drinkable, Facundo Exquisito Bahamas Rum gains its suave, sociable character from a handpicked, premier blend of rums ranging in age from seven to 23 years old. But what characterizes this rum and sets it apart from the others is the final step – Exquisito is allowed to rest in sherry casks for no less than a month, lending the rum an incomparably mellow profile.
