This superb recent addition to the El Dorado portfolio is the result of the skillful marriage by our Master Blenders of aged rums from no fewer than four of the traditional Stills preserved by Demerara Distillers, including the original Wooden Coffey Still from Enmore and the double Wooden Pot Still from Port Mourant. This 8 Year Old rum is a complex fusion of a full flavoured, heavy bodied rum with light-to-medium bodied rums aged in bourbon oak casks - creating a sumptuous smooth sipping rum which can also form the basis of memorable cocktails.
Light to medium-bodied nose with hints of tobacco mixed with caramel toffee. Faint aroma of dried stone fruits and flambee banana. Soft and faintly sweet mouth-feel with traces of oak and butterscotch. Distinctly smooth.
Demerara County, Guyana, has been steeped in the history of sugar and rum production since the 17th century. A hundred years later over 300 sugar estates had their own distillery producing their own signature rums. Through the centuries these estates and distilleries have been amalgamated, but these important marques and the original stills were preserved. Today, Demerara Distillers operates the last remaining distillery in Guyana at Plantation Diamond on the East bank of the Demerara River. Here they have consolidated all the old original stills, marques and traditional skills which make Demerara Rum so distinctive. With its 9 different stills, no other rum distillery in the world offers such a variety and range of over twenty different styles of rum.
