Proof66 Notes

Denizen 8yr Merchant's Reserve Rum (or rhum) is a blended of imported rums springing from Jamaica and Martinique. The age statement carries this particular note that "60%" of the rum in the blend is aged "at least" 8 years... this suggests that a significant fraction may be younger. The label shows a "slow fermented" designation, which they mean the type of yeast they use as a slow acting one during the fermentation process... a yeast they feel brings out the ester flavors of the spirit. The brand name "denizen" is meant to evoke youth, which they announce on their website: "Denizen means to embody liberation, rebellion, and bravery. Our rum is an icon for people coming of age who abandon the traditional path to adulthood."

The brand is owned by US-based Citizen Spirits under the blending talents of Signature Spirits of Holland.

In their 2010 review, the Beverage Testing Institute said, "Serious aged rum character in this white rum. Impressive." They followed it up in 2012 mentioning that it will "pop in cocktails."
