Cuffy Demerara Rum 2002 Le Gus't 16 Year Old Full Proof

A 2002 vintage single cask Demerara rum from French independent bottlers, Le Gus't. Tropically aged 16 years in butt #13/R2002 and bottled at a full proof of 66.9% ABV. An "Optimum Proof" bottling from the same cask was also bottled, at 60.4% ABV. One of 181 bottles.

This rum was distilled at Diamond by Demerara Distillers Ltd, the company formed by the government in Guyana in 1983 after it consolidated all of its nationalised rum distillers as a single entity, using a single distillery. Established around 1670, the Diamond Estate is the only remaining rum distiller in Guyana. Diamond blends its own El Dorado brand using various combinations of marques from its rum-producing stills, which include the pair of two-column English coffey stills, installed there in the 1950s and a rarely used high-ester John Dore pot still. These operate alongside the “Heritage Stills” acquired from Uitvlugt in 1999, which are Uitvlugt’s own historic four-column French Savalle stills, the Versailles and Port Mourant wooden pot stills, and the Enmore wooden coffey still, the oldest and last of its kind in the world. El Dorado was launched in 1992, but the distillery has continued its historic practice of providing barrels to independent bottlers, resulting is a wealth of impressive releases like this.
