Diamond S<W> 1981 Velier 31 Year Old

One of a series of legendary bottlings from the brief but beautiful period (2004-2015) when Velier owned a small stake in Demerara Distillers Ltd (DDL), which afforded Luca Gargano privileged access the warehouses and his pick of casks to bottle. Sadly "The Age of Velier Demerara" has passed but the memory of it lives on in these spectacular releases. 

This is a Demerara rum from the metal coffey stills of Diamond distillery, now the only facility in Guyana, but one of many back when this was distilled in 1981.

Drawn from 3 casks marked S<W>, all fully aged in the tropics for 31 years.

One of 810 bottles.
