Product of: Guyana
A 12yo rum presented in a bottle honouring the flasks discarded by Dutch sailors and then used Guyanan sugar planters as a vessel to hold their early rums. A blend of spirit from 3 stills, a wooden Enmore two-column, a French Savalle four-column and a unique Port Mourant double wooden pot still.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 08/11/2010
Clear, deep coppery amber.
Prunes, plump dates, banoffee pie and toffee apple with a hint of tar, coffee latte and vanilla.
Slightly sweet, yet balanced with mocha coffee, dark chocolate, sherry trifle, cooked apples and cinnamon spice.
Dark chocolate and espresso coffee dominates the lingering finish that is much drier than the palate but still reminiscent of a mocha coffee with a half spoon of sugar. Lingering spice.
