2004 Diamond Estate (Versailles Wooden Pot) 16 Year Old "Golden Devil" K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Barrel Guyanese Rum (750ml) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1499790

The incredible Diamond Estate is the only remnant of the once booming Guyanese rum trade. Incredibly, the rum industry in this small Caribbean nation (geographically part of South America) managed to maintain and consolidate in such a way that as each distillery closed their equipment and there for much of their identity, remained intact and moved to subsequent facilities. The one remaining distillery in the capital Georgetown, is now a veritable working museum, dedicated to the complicated history of the Caribbean rum trade. While they have a huge variety of interesting stills, the most renowned by rum lovers are the two Wooden Pot stills originally located at the Port Mourant and Versailles estates. The unusual Versailles still is a single vat built from Greenhart Wood in the 19th century. This system consists of a wooden vat (essentially large barrel with a copper top and swan neck) charged with wash. Steam coils boil the wort and the vapors are led to the retort (a copper pot filled high wines) and then to the rectified and condenser. It's an inefficient ancient still creates one of the most flavorful and unique spirits in the rum world. This distillate is the Diamond Estate's medium heavy rum and prized for its complexity. We're lucky to have snagged this excellent cask, which was bottled without additions of water or any other additives at a bombastic 122.8 proof. Only 112 bottles will be available of this special rum.
