A. H. Riise Frogman Rum is a rum with a significant connection to the Danish fleet and maritime life is created with respect for and in collaboration with the Danish Frogman Corps, an elite Danish Special Operations division. Just like the Danish frogmen, this rum is something truly exceptional.
At 58% abv, the rum 'is proof'. This term originates from America when in the 16th century alcohol content was testing by placing gunpowder into the spirit. If it could still burn then the alcohol was ruled to be over 'proof' and given a higher tax.
A.H. Riise Frogman Rum is blended from up to 20 year old distillates and despite its high abv, the aroma is mild with notes of rich Christmas cake, leather and cigars. On the palate, there is a 'bite' from the alcohol which brings an intense flavour with stewed cherries, burnt figs, cigars and a pleasant citrus note which adds balance and slowly fades into the finish.
