Holmes Cay Uitvlugt 18yo...

Holmes Cay Uitvlugt 18yo (51.0%): What I am about to pour today is the last sample left from the Southern California Whisky Club 's Holmes Cay tasting in May. It is distilled by Diamond Distillery using another inherited still from a former distillery exactly like the 16yo Port Mourant I posted about earlier but this time the old 4-column Savalle still was sourced from Uitvlugt Distillery which permanently stopped its operations back in 1999. The rum was distilled in 2003 filled in four ex-Bourbon barrels and kept in Guyana for 2 years before being shipped to UK where it would age another 16 years in those four barrels. Like the rest of the line-up all four casks were bottled after being brought to New York Estate yielding 858 bottled in total. The sample I have is from the cask numbered #30. Color: Medium amber, wildflower honey color with a copper shine and thick, distinct and slow moving legs. Nose: Grilled pineapple rings, caramel brittles and roasted walnuts. Orange blossom
