Staff Pick Notes

The intense and sophisticated funk of Jamaica's rums, known as hogo, is one of the hallmarks of the nation's spirit. It is polarizing, but like many intense flavors, it has its ardent, fervid fans. I absolutely count myself among them! Hogo derives from the French term haut goût, which is used to describe intense umami flavors such as aged meats and other game. It may be an acquired taste, but it is one that I deeply adore. If you love flavors like long aged steaks, the funky flavors of Thai cuisine, then this rum is absolutely for you. Bananas, pears, custard, a hint of fuel, beautiful hogo funk on full display. This is a real treasure for lovers of pot still Jamaican rums with long fermentation periods and high ester content. To sip, savor, enjoy, and mull over the complexities of our lives.
