GUYANA 16 Year Old 2003 Diamond Rum
On 26 May 1966, British Guiana gained its independence as part of the Commonwealth under the name Guyana. In 1975, for political reasons, all of the Demerara region’s distilleries were grouped together in a single production unit known as Diamond. It produces both very light rums and heavy pot still rums. With no fear of breaking from convention, this version boasts a remarkably well-balanced collection of flavours, and at times ventures far outside the boundaries of its native land, even evoking a single malt produced by a now-closed distillery in the south of Scotland.
the unctuous initial nose is characterized by stunning notes of acacia honey and pineapple. Allowed to breathe, it becomes spicy and hot (ointment, cinnamon). A fine layer of rubber gradually envelops the aromatic palette. The original attack is both vanilla and fruity (candied pear). On the mid-palate, coconut milk and cane sugar bring a very soft syrupy sensation. The silky finish evokes a Lowland single malt. It is herbaceous, fruity and medicinal all at once. The end of the palate returns to cane sugar.
