A 1998 vintage Guyana rum from Mezan, distilled at the now closed and hard to say Uitvlugt distillery. This would have been distilled on their four column Savalle still, which lives on at the state owned Demerera Distillers company.
Clear, bright golden. Subdued muscovado sugar, golden syrup and overripe banana nose with vanilla and a slight whiff of yacht varnish. Dry, light/medium palate with sweet ripe banana, vanilla and dried tropical fruit balanced by spicy oaky tannins. Medium finish with more tropical fruit, lingering buttery vanilla and lightly tannic oak - fades with salty spicy oak. 4.5/5
