“Rich, complex Demerara with balanced oak, lingering licorice finish.”

Introducing the Versailles 2006, a remarkable rum produced in Guyana at the Demerara Distillers Ltd distillery, selected and bottled by Milano Rum Festival & Barmetro. Distilled in 2006 from molasses using a Single Wooden Pot Still, and aged for 16 years, this rum is bottled at cask strength with an ABV of 52.6% in a limited release of just 253 bottles. A favorite among rum enthusiasts, this exceptional rum captivates the senses with inviting aromas of plum, licorice, woody, molasses, and raisin. On the palate, it offers a delightful harmony of roasted, prunes, licorice, fresh and mineral flavors. The alcohol is well-integrated, with a long and dry finish highlighted by licorice and oak notes. Slightly mineral in character, the Versailles 2006 is an ideal choice for those who appreciate a balanced, complex, and aromatic rum.

How does this rum taste?

A rich, complex Versailles 2006 from Guyana with a harmonious balance of dry fruits, caramel, and wood. Lingering licorice and oak finish, slightly marred by an unexpected schnaps note. Bold but not overpowering at 52.6% ABV. A rare, enjoyable find.

“On the nose, the 2006s are unsurprisingly quite similar: dried fruit, subtle spice and wood notes. What stands out for me in the direct comparison is a mineral note, which also remains present on the palate. In addition, the obligatory prune, leather, licorice, wood, some roasted aromas, and caramel sweetness. Aromatically quite with appealing complexity. For me, the light minerality is the most recognizable feature. For the comparison to the 1994 representatives, I repeat my impressions of the other 2006s: much less heaviness, the plum notes occur here rather in tandem with currant, the dark tones of wood, licorice, leather and caramel are much less pronounced. I am inclined - despite the aromatic complexity of this bottling - to speak of "REV Light." While the spectrum of 2006s also has its charm and the character is undeniably recognizable, in my eyes the REV profile benefits extremely from the long aging and resulting complexity. However, the reference points can also be described as almost unfair for the younger bottlings, especially for proven lovers of the 1994 REVs.”

“Tasted together with the Rome de Luxe Guyana REV 2006! They are quite similar... but the Milano has a bit more of the classic flavors and the mineral! That gives im a few points more!”

“Encore un très beau représentant des Versailles REV. Pour être juste entre eux il faudrait les comparer ensemble. Je dois dire que j'aime beaucoup ces profils, c'est vraiment dans mes goûts. Donc même note que le RomDeLuxe collectors car je le trouve aussi plaisant!”
