Uitvlugt ULR 1997 Velier 17 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 17 year old rum, distilled in 1990 on the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, which was housed at Uitvlugt after the closure of the original Pour Mourant distillery for which it is named. As with the Versailles and Enmore stills, the Port Mourant still are now at Diamond since the closure of Uitvlugt in 2000.
Bottled in 2008, this is one of 881 bottles.
