This gorgeous 21 Year Old was distilled at Guyana’s Diamond distillery, the last official rum producer in the entire country, in 1998 and matured for 21 years before being bottled for Cask 88’s brilliant Rum Collection. Situated on the banks of the Demerara river, the Diamond Distillery has been making rum since 1670, so to say they’re experts at their craft is something of an understatement.
It exhibits a beautiful dark amber colour and brings caramel sweetness, tempered with oaky dryness and even some leathery notes – this very old rum would be an incredible partner to a cigar as the last sliver of late-summer sunlight disappears from the horizon.
Much like the 20 Year Old, there is a whole host of notes to be explored here, but interestingly it is quite a different expression all together, once again highlighting the uniqueness of single cask spirits.
Only 135 bottles of this one were produced.
