High Spirits Collection Uitvlugt Demerara Rum 1998 18yr 58%

Dive into the exceptional journey of the "Demerara Rum" from the historic Uitvlugt distillery, bottled by High Spirits Collection. Distilled in 1998 and matured for 18 years, this Guyanese marvel stands out with its intriguing aroma of barrel, toasted notes, licorice, and roasted almonds. On the palate, it delivers layers of cream toffee, rich barrel depth, milk chocolate, pineapple, and vanilla.

“Although I was very curious to try this bottles, I was slightly disappointed after trying…the wood from the barrel, mixed with the high proof, kinda overpower all the other flavors..I still get a light floral note, along with roasted pineapple, some vanilla, licorice roots and possibly some ginger on the nose. On the palate, is more or less the same profile, slightly mellowed and a touch more sweet, with caramel and a little bit of wax, turning into biscuits on the finish. Definitely not the typical UITVLUGT expression, yet interesting.”
