Diamond 2003

In Guyana, all remaining rum stills have been consolidated at DDL’s Diamond Distillery at the beginning of the 21st century, making it the country’s only rum distillery today. Thus, when buying a rum from the Diamond Distillery that has been distilled after the final merger (i.e. starting in the year 2000), it is often times…

Enmore Versailles 1990

Our Rum & Spirits Guyana 2003 12YO

Alaaf! 😉 Today’s review discusses the Gold Medal winner in the category “Single Cask” of last year’s German Rum fest, the 6th edition of the fair. Although such awards should usually be taken with a grain of salt, this rum really deserves it. I am talking about the “Our Rum & Spirits Guyana 2003 12YO”. The Bottling…
