The Port Morant Estate in Guyana was established in 1732 and was one of the earliest to produce the unique Demerara style of rum for which the country became so famous. The Demerara Vat Stills used at the estate were moved to Georgetown as part of the reorganization of the industry some years ago.
These very large pot stills, which are quite unique, are still producing their special style of heavy rum, much sought after for blending in the traditional style.
We have selected this bottling from 1999 which has been matured for most of its life in American oak, until we transferred it to old Port Pipes for the last 2 years prior to bottling.
Amber in colour with ruby tints the nose is full of fruit with tones of toffee and soft wood. A good weight of palate leads to sweetness and the classic Port Morant touch of aniseed. Well controlled wood enhances a long and lingering finish.
Enjoy over ice with a fine cigar.
