Port Mourant 1975 Silver Seal 37 Year Old
A 1975 vintage 'Port Morant' Demerara rum, distilled in 1976. The Port Mourant distillery in Guyana stopped production in the 1950s, with its stills moved to Uitvlugt who continued to produce rum in the same style. Uitvlugt is now also closed, but the Port Mourant still lives on to this day, in use at Guyana's only remaining distillery, Diamond.
Silver Seal was founded by Ernesto Mainardi in 2000. This was Mainardi's second bottling company after the esteemed Sestane in 1979. Both companies were sold to Massimo Righi, proprietor of Whisky Antique, in 2010. Since then the company has produced a steady stream of high quality rum to add to its sought after back-catalogue.
This was aged 37 years and bottled in 2013 from single cask #2050.
One of 139 bottles.
