Dictador 1978 Abyss 40 Year Old

Pretty innovative stuff from Columbian rum house Dictador. Distilled in 1978 the Abyss has been matured 40 years including an 8 month period at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean! Placed 30 meters under the water, off the coast of Ushant Island, in specially designed caissons which protected the precious liquid from natural hazards whilst maintaining a constant 11-13ºc with maximal humidity and 3 bars of pressure.

The liquid has been filled into only 46 unusual, barnacle encrusted bottles, this is number 40.
