Rum Review: Momento Amber Rum (Highwood Distillers)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 16, 2010

Highwood Distillers of High River, Alberta was created as Sunnyvale Distillers in 1974.  The distillery has seen moderate growth since its initial start up which has increased during the last several years as Highwood has began to assert itself as a major player in the Canadian Distilling Industry.

Although primarily known for their whisky, I have found that Highwood produces a quality rum.  Momento Amber Rum from Highwood Distillers is a Demerara blend of rums aged in charred oak barrels at the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.    The rum itself,  is imported from the world famous Demerara County in Guyana, which has a 300 year tradition of producing top quality rums.  Here is an Excerpt from my review:

“…A light honeyed brown sugar aroma with spicy accents rises into the air after I swirl my glass.  Long skinny legs trail quickly back into the rum.  A vague hint of anise and orange peel oils  drift into the merry little breezes.  Finally a nice imprint  of vanilla and oak set themselves into the aroma as well.   Everything in the nose is light and clean.  This is very nice and bodes very well for what comes next…”
