Port Mourant PM 1972 Velier 36 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, encased in glass. 

Distilled in 1972, the casks, marked PM, were selected by Luca Gargano of Velier in March 2008 after a whopping 36 years of continental ageing.

Port Mourant distillery closed in the 1950s, and its still was transferred to Uitvlugt where the three barrels in this blend were filled. The Port Mourant double wooden pot still was then moved to Diamond in 2000 when Uitvlugt closed as well.

One of 175 bottles.
