Guyana 20 Year Old Rum
Distilled in 1999 • 64.7% ABV • 55 Bottles
Despite 20 years of maturation in an ex-bourbon cask, this amazing dark rum has an incredible brightness in its flavour. The colour of golden sunshine, it overflows with exotic fruity flavours and the grassy freshness of freshly-squeezed cane sap. An excellent rum for the early evening, to freshen and prepare you for a lively night.
We can’t say for sure, but a friendly expert was confident that this rum was made on the ‘Port Mourant’ double pot still due to its character. We invite spirited discussion!
Nose – A strong first impression of dark Demerara sugar, which then shifts aside to reveal more subtle vegetal aromas, like agave or aloe sap.
Palate – On the tongue, this rhum punches with fruity, tropical flavours. A leading note of soursop and cherimoya fruits develops into the subtlety of asian pear and golden apples.
