Monymusk MBS 2010 9 Year Old
Monymusk is the flagship brand of Clarendon rum marketed by majority owners, National Rums of Jamaica. The holding company was established in 1985 and is currently a joint venture between the Jamaican government, Demerara Distillers in Guyana, and Maison Ferrand in France. The Monymusk brand is named after the sugar factory and plantation in which the Clarendon distillery is located, and the rum is aged and blended at NRJ’s silent Innswood distillery, which ceased production in 1992. Clarendon distillery is one of the Caribbean’s newer rum factories, built back in 1949. Back then, it was a small operation, running a single pot still produced by legendary Louisville, Kentucky coppersmiths, Vendome. Today it is joined by a second, larger pot still of Indian manufacture, a modern five-column still, both installed in 2009.
This 2010 vintage was bottled as part of the National Rums of Jamaica collaboration with Italian distributors, Velier.
A 2010 vintage, this wa distilled on the Clarendon column stills and fully aged for 9 years in the tropics. This is marked MBS, and contains congeners at 308,4 gr/hlpa, and esters at a level of 152,2 gr/hlpa.
One of 4600 drawn from a stock of 15 barrels.
