product Details

Versailles 1985 Duncan Taylor 27 Year Old

A Demerara rum from Enmore, distilled in 1985 on the Versailles single wooden pot still.

The Enmore distillery closed in 1993, with its wooden coffey still, and the Versailles still that produced this moved first to Uitvlugt and then to Diamond in 2000, where their styles are still produced today.

Duncan Taylor was founded in Glasgow in 1938 as a cask broker and trading company. Its modern history began in 2001 when a former Glendronach employee, Euan Shand, purchased the firm and moved it to Huntly in Aberdeenshire, using the impressive cask portfolio it has amassed over the 20th century to become one of the premier independent bottlers in Scotland.

One of 260 bottles drawn from cask #64.
