Chantal Comte has been singing the praises of vintage rums since 1983. She is acknowledged by collectors throughout the world and has invented a profession that existed for whiskey, but not previously for rum: the Blender/Bottler, under the "Chantal Comte
Her collection, which began in the 1980's, is now one of the most remarkable in the world. During her travels in the West Indies, Chantal Comte has developed the art of discovering treasures: extraordinary rums for which she often reveals the singularities to the very distillers who created them.
Her discoveries are eagerly awaited by the most demanding connoisseurs. The scarcity of the vintages, distributed in small quantities, adds to the pleasure of the discoveries. The wait can sometimes be long!
The collection was enriched in June 2017 with the release of the "Fighting Spirit Gold" white rum in its beautiful, emblematic screen-printed bottle and two new extra-old rums, under the label of "The Golden Tower": a stunning, complex 2001 of infinite persistence, and an opulent, sensual 2006 of remarkable elegance.All individually numbered. All cask or barrel strength.
"The Golden Tower 2005" vintage, bottled in September 2017, a "Barrel Strength, from a single Barrel," with just 515 numbered bottles, was selected as the best dark rum in the world.
All four of the rums presented at the 2018 World Rum Competition (Madrid) won double gold medals, which is very rare in the word of rum.
