Kuna (40% abv) is a launch from the Lookout Group, taking advantage of the growing appeal of premium dark rums globally. During the Panamanian dry season from December to April, freshly pressed sugar cane juice is fermented and distilled before being matured in ex-bourbon casks for eight years. These rums are then blended and aged for a further six months in French oak barrels, giving the liquid, according to the company, “sweet and subtle smoky aromas with a hint of red fruit flavours and a smooth character”. Kuna is said to be best enjoyed as a sipping rum, neat or on the rocks.
