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 13 year old 55.7% ABV rum comes from the legendary Port Mourant wooden pot still that was previously kept at Uitvlugt distillery before being moved to Diamond around 1999. Perhaps the most famous of DDL's heritage stills, this wooden pot still creates heavy, earthy, sometimes funky rums that are synonymous with the British Navy rum that is still venerated today. Made from greenheart wood, which was used to build ships centuries ago, the still dates back to the 1700s when it was used at the Port Mourant estate. Gold in color, aromas of baked apple and cinnamon with an exotic almost cardamon note that slowly morphs into a greener, funkier element. The palate is a running brigade of cooked tropical fruits, diesel/petrol, and earth with a finish of smoked meats and jerky. The empty glass smells like Jamaican jerk sauce. Getting to taste 13 year old, pure Port Mourant, unadulterated, from a single barrel at full proof is quite experience for many rum fans out there. It's also quite educational!
