This section contains the very darkest of rums - not rums darkened solely by long ageing, but Navy rums like Pusser's and Demerara rums made nearly black by a combination of age and added caramel or molasses.
A very potent cask strength rum from Guyana's famous lost distillery Enmore - this special bottling is comprised of eight casks from the distillery's final distillation in 1995. Thankfully Enmore's legendary wooden pot still lives on at Demerara Distillers's Diamond distillery.
A 1993 vintage bottling of Demerara Rum from Port Mourant distillery on Guyana. Bottled by Italian importer Velier at 12 years of age and full proof of 65%, this has an oily texture with notes If liquorice and a whack of oak. Rated an impressive 90 points by Serge Valentin over on whiskyfun.com.
A 1985 vintage Demerara Rum produced at Uitvlugt (pronounced eye-flut) Distillery on Guyana. Bottled at full proof at 27 years of age by Italian independent bottlers Velier, this is incredibly complex and rich, with notes of dark chocolate and Christmas cake.
A 1960s bottling of Lamb's Navy Rum, produced at that time in the Demerara region of Guyana. Created in 1849 by Alfred Lamb, the original blend used 18 rums from Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana and Trinidad.
Bottled from the Last Consignment of stock of Royal Naval Rum, which had been hidden in storage since Black Tot Day in 1970 - when the official rations ceased - Black Tot is a true piece of rum (and naval) history. Rumfest Golden Rum Barrel Awards 2010: Best European Rum
