Nicaragua Rum 1999 Kill Devil 18 Year Old Cask Strength

Kill Devil and Golden Devil are rum labels bottled by Edition Spirits, a company founded in 2010 by Scott and Andrew Laing, the sons of Douglas Laing founder, Stewart. When he left Douglas Laing to establish the new Hunter Laing company in 2013, he was joined by his sons who made Edition Spirits one of its operating arms, along with Langside Distillers.

This single cask was distilled at CLDN in January 1999 and aged for 18 years before being bottled at cask strength.

One of 256 bottles.

The Compania Licorera de Nicaragua distillery (CLDN) was established in 1937 to produce the Flor de Cana rum brand, first bottled in the late 19th century. The distillery was extensively upgraded in 1996 and is one of the most modern rum producing facilities in the world. It operates a three-column continuous still, and the aged rum is laid down for a minimum of four years in American oak casks. The ability of CLDN to continue distilling during the turbulent periods of Nicaraguan history during the 1980s and 1990s means that it has one of the largest stock inventories of aged rum in the world, meaning it can spare a lot of casks for independent labels like this.
