Matusalem Solera 7 is a 7-year aged rum from Cuban distillery, Matusalem. Matusalem distillery was founded in Cuba in 1872 but is now based in the Dominican Republic after fleeing Cuba following the Cuban Revolution in 1959.
The word ‘Solera’ refers to the blending system used to age the rum. The oldest rum from the bottom barrels is removed and bottled, and then the gap is filled from the next oldest barrel, and so on until the gap in the top barrel is filled by young rum. This allows the rum to continue to develop flavour and sweetness. Matusalem Solera 7 is a creamy rum, with vanilla and maple syrup sweetness from the Solera ageing process.
