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% ABV rum comes from the famed wooden Coffey still from the old Enmore distillery. Built out of greenheart wood, which was used to build ships back in the day, the towering twin columns look like two giant games of Jenga, with their criss-crossing planks that originally date back to around 1880. Getting the chance to taste a singular rum from a single still that dates back over 140 years, without the additional of sugar or additives, and at full proof, is a dream for many rum nerds out there. This expression shows lemongrass and ginger on the nose with a healthy dollop of vanilla. The first sip brings a mouthful of sweet cane, lots of bright, fruity goodness exploding in your mouth like candy Pop Rocks at 134 proof. It's not just a fascinating spirit, it's a historical one, to boot! Consider this an educational experience in addition to being an enjoyable one!

Packed full of flavor

Ridiculously light in color but packed full of flavor, I think most of which is coming from the distillation more than the 8y in used barrels.
Id like a little more viscosity to offset the heat but its a tasty bugger.
Light Brown Sugar, Milk Chocolate, Citrus Peels, Vanilla, Caramel, sweet but not overly sweet like a lot of Rums.
I think its very much in the vein of one that Bourbon drinkers would like, its just "hotter" than most bourbons in its proof range but smells like a rum finished Stagg Jr.
