product Details

Worthy Park WPE 2017 Single Cask 2 Year Old / LMDW

Located in the Lluidas Vale of Jamaica’s Saint Catherine parish, the Worthy Park Estate is a sprawling 100,000 acres of land, around 40% of which is dedicated to sugar cultivation. Records indicate that rum production commenced there as far back as 1741 and took place there for 220 years before the original distillery was shut down due to an oversupply of Jamaican rum following the second world war. Amazingly, in 340 years the estate has been owned by just three different families, the most recent being the Clarke’s, who bought it in 1918. Gordon, the great-grandson of the first Worth Park Clarke submitted plans for a new state of the art distillery in 2005, which produced its first spirit two years later. It produces pure single rum from its own estate molasses on its sole double-retort pot still from Forsyths in Scotland. The distillery’s first brand was titled Rum Bar, before the casks initially laid down for ageing became Worthy Park’s first official release under their own name when the Estate Reserve was announced at RumFest in 2017.

This is a single cask bottling of the distillery's highest ester mark, WPE. 2017 was the first vintage for WPE production, meaning this cask is some of the first produced, and certainly was one of the first available.

It was aged tropically in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels for 2 years and bottled at cask strength as an exclusive release for La Maison du Whisky.
