Mezan Guyana Rum 2005
Mezan // Guyana
Mezan sources its rums from single distilleries in the Caribbean. This rum hails from Diamond Distillery in Guyana, who cultivate their own yeast strain and employ a range of stills. In this case, the molasses-based distillate from estate-grown cane passed through a double wooden pot-still. It was aged in ex-bourbon casks, however there is no evidence as to when it was bottled.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"This full-bodied rum is bursting with tropical and tart stone fruits - apricot, papaya, mango and guava. A rich, roasty flavor of sticky caramel toffee underlies orange peel, sage, rosemary and walnut. Very sippable, though finishes a bit short with a puff of charcoal. "
