Holmes Cay Guyana Uitvlugt 2003 18 Year Single Cask Rum was distilled on a historic French 4-column Savalle column still. Originally located in the legendary Uitvlugt Estate (pronounced “eye-flot”), the still can now be found at Diamond Distillery, Guyana. This 100% column still rum was aged two years tropically in Guyana and 16 years in the UK, and bottled in New York State. Aging alone creates the complex flavors of the Guyana Uitvlugt 2003. No sugar, no color, and no other flavors were added in the making of this rum. The Guyana Uitvlugt 2003 is bottled at barrel proof, or 51% alcohol by volume. Four casks, just 858 bottles of this premium, 18-year old rum are available.
NOSE: Golden honey and a whiff of brine.
PALATE: Overripe tropical fruits, then continues with hints of almond, herbs and a touch of cocoa.
FINISH: Lingering, light tobacco.
