Our E. León Jimenes 110 Aniversario rum has been crowned ‘Rum of the Year’ (2022) by USA Spirits Ratings. Furthermore, it has been awarded a Gold Medal and a score of 94 points by the panel of high-level judges from the spirits industry. These experts gave it a high score across three different categories including quality, value and packaging.
Winning at the USA Spirits Ratings Competition is not only a definitive seal of approval, but also demonstrates that this is a high quality spirit with broad consumer appeal. One of the guiding principles of the USA Spirits Ratings competition is that all spirits that receive medals in the competition must be those that consumers actually want to buy, whether buying a spirit in a liquor shop or ordering a spirit from a bar menu.
That’s why the USA Spirits Ratings competition has created an entirely new 100-point rating system that takes into account three different criteria (quality, value and packaging), rather than just spirit-making technique or overall taste.
Other awards held by our E. León Jimenes 110th Anniversary Rum
Our rum, created to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the factory, is aged for ten years, resulting in the ultimate pairing experience for lovers of premium cigars. The first eight years are spent in virgin American white oak barrels, which give it the majority of its flavour. The last two years it is aged in virgin French oak casks, which give it roundness and homogeneity.
It is a rich and complex rum, with an exceptional flavour and a finish marked by sweet, spicy and floral notes. In addition to the distinctions now awarded by the USA Spirits Awards, our rum received 97 points from the Beverage Testing Institute. It also holds the Double Gold Medal in the 2020 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
