Enmore ELCR 1995 Velier 16 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. 

A fantastic 16 year old, full proof, Demerara rum. This is bottled from 8 casks from the final distillation at Enmore in 1995, before it closed. The casks were marked ELCR, which usually denotes rum from the famous Enmore wooden coffey still. The label however states that this is a pot distilled rum, which is likely a mistake. The pot still at Enmore was the similarly historic Versailles wooden pot still. Both of the Enmore stills are still producing rum at their new home at Diamond.

Drawn from barrels #7104-7111, this was bottled in 2011.
