THE PEDIGREE :
Holmes Cay Guyana - Port Mourant Demerara 2005 is a product of the legendary Port Mourant double wooden pot still. Now nearly 300 years old, it’s the only double wooden pot still in existence. This 100% pot still rum was distilled at Demerara Distillers in 2005 and bottled in New York State.
AGED 15 YEARS:
Aged for 15 years in the UK in American oak recycled rum casks.
JUST RUM - NO ADDITIVES OF ANY KIND:
Aging alone creates the complex flavors. No sugar, no color, no other flavors are added in the making of this rum. Not even water has been added. What is bottled is what went into the cask 15 years earlier. Nothing but rum.
Holmes Cay Guyana Port Mourant 2005 is bottled at full cask strength. One cask has been bottled at 56.4% alcohol by volume.
Only a single cask, yielding 180 bottles of this premium, 15-year old rum is available. There are few opportunities in the United States to enjoy pure aged rum at full cask strength.
An earthy nose of banana, hints of black cherry and notes of pine transitions smoothly to pineapple, citrus and honeyed pine on the tongue with a finish of peat, banana and stone fruit jam.
Best enjoyed neat with a splash of water.
Holmes Cay - Single Cask Rum was created with one simple premise, to seek out the world’s best rums and release them unadulterated and at cask strength. Holmes Cay offers limited edition rums to U.S. lovers of ultra-premium spirits.
