Holmes Cay Jamaica Wedderburn 2011 edition, a medium ester, 100% pot still rum, was distilled in 2011 at the Clarendon Distillery, Jamaica. It was tropically aged for 3 years in Jamaica in ex-bourbon casks, with 7 years further aging in the UK. It was bottled in 2021 in New York State. Aging alone creates the complex flavors of the Jamaica Wedderburn 2011. No sugar, no color, and no other flavors were added in the making of this rum. The Jamaica Wedderburn 2011 is bottled at cask strength, or 59% alcohol by volume. Four casks containing 1,050 bottles of this premium, 10-year old rum are available.
Tasting Notes: A nose of young pineapple and drying oak opens into rich, overripe tropical fruit on the tongue. Black pepper and baking spices lead to a substantial finish of leather and tobacco leaf.
The Holmes Cay Uitvlugt 2003 edition 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.
Tasting Notes: With golden honey and a whiff of brine on the nose, the palate starts out with overripe tropical fruits, then continues with hints of almond, herbs and a touch of cocoa. Light tobacco lingers on the finish.
