Cask Aged 8 Year Old Rum

Cask Aged 8 Year Old Rum, El Dorado
  • Created by Master Blender, Sharon Sue-Hang-Baksh
  • Blend of column and pot still rums produced by the historic Demerara Distillers Ltd.
  • Molasses fermented up to 26 hours
  • Aged 8 years in oak barrels
  • El Dorado 8 year features a funky nose with hints of tobacco, caramel, and toffee; there are secondary aromas of tropical and dried stone fruit and the finish is long and assertive with traces of spice and oak.
  • 40% ABV

Aging at ambient temperature under tropical climatic conditions contributes crucially to the mellow smoothness of the final spirit, with its complex flavors and rich aromas that make Demerara Rums so unique. The aging process is significantly sped up by the high humidity and steady temperature–resulting in a Demerara 8 Year Old Rum, for instance, having a maturity equal to that of a 16 year old spirit aged in more temperate climates.
