The 18th Century estate at Plantation Versailles, then owned by the French family L'Amirault, was situated on the West bank of the Demerara River and was famous for its golden rum. Distilled on the Single Wooden Pot Still, the rum is coloured with caramel prior to aging in oak barrels for 12 years. This rum celebrates the smooth chocolatey palate of a fine aged rum. This 12 year old rum was distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2018
Tasting note: Nose represents a somewhat strong bourbon characteristic, some vanilla and oak with a subtle fortified wine note that comes through after having several minutes to breathe. The flavour skips over the tip of the tongue and lands around middle palate with jammy fruit and char. It's elegant and the flavours layer across the palate moving from mid to back. It finishes clean and short but leaves a lingering flavour in the mouth of chared dried apricot and prunes.
