Imagine a couple of marketing bods sat drinking rum, deciding that a personality named Ron, the Spanish name for rum, would make a great rum brand name. Then the two of them recite all the celebrity Rons they can think of, eventually hitting upon porn star Ron Jeremy.
Ron de Jeremy is a 7-year-old Panamanian rum created by 72 year-old Cuban Master Blender Francisco "Don Pancho" Fernandez and is presented in numbered bottles. As for the brand name, the Ron in question, Ronald Jeremy Hyatt was born on 12-March 1953 in New York City. In 1978, a girlfriend sent off his photograph to appear in Playgirl Magazine's 'Boy Next Door' pages. Subsequently, Ron received female fan mail and offers from adult filmmakers leading to his first appearance in a hard core move, Co-ed Teasers, in 1983.
Ron "the Hedgehog" Jeremy is one of the most famous male porn stars with more than 1,000 films in which he has performed. He is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for "Most Appearances in Adult Films". Ron has also appeared in numerous music videos, video games, stand up shows and talk shows. His memoir, titled Ron Jeremy: The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz was a New York Times bestseller and a documentary of his life Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy has been shown worldwide.
Produced by the aptly named 'One Eyed Spirits', Ron de Jeremy Rum is marketed with the tongue-in-cheek straplines "The adult rum" and "for adults only".
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 22/10/2011
(bottle No. 28047) Clear, golden amber with polished copper highlights.
Delicate orange zest and cigar tobacco leaf with sweet plump sultanas, vanilla, the merest waft of smoke, cinnamon, Indian spice and old oak aromas.
Slightly sweet, zesty mandarin orange, overripe banana and delicate spice with warming cinnamon and creamy fudge.
Spice emerges in the medium length, lightly peppered, vanilla and fruity toffee finish.
