The Larga Vida Manifesto

Back in the day, Rum was considered a remedy—a universal life hack making Man’s hardships a bit more bearable. Today too, Man suffers and the essence of life is still bittersweet. And you know what else is bittersweet? Proper, aged, smooth-as-f**k RUM! Its silky texture reminds us of time, and its complex sweetness with bolts of bitterness reminds us of... well, LIFE. And by accepting it as it is, we suffer no more.

Larga Vida XO 2019 is a concoction patiently aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 15 and up to 24 years, and later finished in a myriad of Wine casks. It’s a marriage of 10 distinct Rums from 10 specific Rum-making countries.

The Making of Vida

A word from Grisa Soba
Flaviar co-founder and creator of Larga Vida

Rum is usually associated with cocktails and cooking, but sophisticated and carefully crafted sipping Rums have been around for a long long time, and they offer a vast and wonderful landscape of exciting flavors.
Here’s how Larga Vida came to be.

The Rum Origins

1. The Rum Origins

Different terroirs mean different characters. We handpicked 10 tropical Rums and meticulously blended them into a flavorful choir where each voice complements the others and elevates the final blend into a complex and powerful harmony. The Rums come from 10 Rum nations: Barbados, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guyana, Jamaica, Mauritius, Panama, Trinidad, and Colombia.

Diversity of Finishing

2. The Finishing Affair

Wood is the grand master of flavor and an essential component. You need quality wood, and in different styles, so that you have more options later in the process. We put Larga Vida on a journey through the woodlands of different casks and barrels—new and old, toasted and charred, and ex-Wine. This Rum has touched them all.

Blended to Perfection

3. Blended to be Married

Let’s keep it real. We could say Larga Vida is just another sourced Rum. But that wouldn’t be fair. It’s been more than 4 years in the making and we had total control over the process. It’s a privilege to be able to source Rums directly from the makers, to separately finish the expressions, to blend them and marry them, so that the flavors can integrate, harmonize and fully develop. The result is more than the sum of its parts - more complex, balanced and rounded. Two Cherries on top? If you know your way around Rum, you may recognize some Foursquare Rum that went into this blend. And the stopper... Well, we’re pretty sure our speedboat will make everyone's inner Sonny Crockett proud Emoji.

Specs & Flavor profile

The worthy dark amber successor of Larga Vida 2018 kept much of its delicious DNA with notes of banana, vanilla, cinnamon and citrus. What’s new is an opulent addition of dates and honeycomb, while the maturation amped-up oak notes and nuttiness. The funky flavor is complemented by a touch of smoke and Cognac-esque finish. Complex as hell – a perfect dram for true Rum-heads.
