Diamond <S> 1999 Velier 15 Year Old
One of a series of legendary bottlings from the brief but beautiful period (2004-2015) when Velier owned a small stake in Demerara Distillers Ltd (DDL), which afforded Luca Gargano privileged access the warehouses and his pick of casks to bottle. Sadly "The Age of Velier Demerara" has passed but the memory of it lives on in these spectacular releases.
This is a Demerara rum from the metal coffey stills of Diamond distillery, now the only facility in Guyana, with Uitvlugt closing the year after this was distilled.
Drawn from 4 new charred oak casks marked <S>, all fully aged in the tropics for 15 years.
One of 1137 bottles.
