One of three new Guyanese single barrels we've just purchased from rum pioneer Ed Hamilton, each from a heritage still at Diamond Distillery, this 8 year old 67.5% ABV rum comes from the heralded Versailles wooden pot still, which dates back to the early 1800s when the Versailles plantation was located on the west bank of the Demerara River. While similar to the Port Mourant pot still, albeit with only a single vat compared with the double vat of the PM, the Versailles wooden pot creates only about 60% of the congeners you'll find in those heavier rums, so you get a mellower profile that's a bit more user friendly. The rum itself is a pale straw color, as there are no additives and no caramel coloring. The nose is full of tropical fruits with some light funkiness, while the palate shows pineapple, green banana, and dried mango flavors that are surprisingly clean and delineated. The petrol and funkiness of the classic pot still profile comes through on the back end, but it’s never overpowering. This is a fantastic rum for those looking to dip their toe in the high proof and historic rum category, but want something they can actually drink repeatedly and enjoy profusely!
