The unique double wooden pot still allowed the Port Mourant distillery to create rums rich in esters, which made the taste even more luxurious, and the aroma even deeper. Soon, Port Mourant became one of the few distilleries to distribute rum to the British Navy. According to the tradition lasting up to 1970, the members of the British Navy were each given 2 ounces of rum a day.

At the turn of the 20th century, the distillery became part of the British Booker Group corporation. In 1955, as one of the last distilleries in Guyana, it had to halt production. However, this was not the end of the Port Mourant-style rums. The wooden alembic survived the closure of the distillery. At first, it was transported to the Albion distillery, and after that to Uitvlugt. Finally, in 2000 it ended up with its current owner, the Diamond Distillery of Demerara Distillers.
The rum we are pleased to present was produced back when the alembic belonged to the Uitvlugt distillery. This liquor matured for 31 years in a bourbon barrel, and is the first of the Greenheart Collection.

 

Tasting notes

*****
From Port Mourant’s wooden still when it was still at Uitvlugt. Even utter loudmouths/windmills cannot make rum crazier than this. Bla-bla-bla… Colour: amber. Nose: awe and resins, warm waxes, propolis, liquorice lozenges and natural tar liqueurs. This is deep, subtle, solid and heavy, all at the same time. No, it’s sublime. Mouth: heavy oak, heavy pinewood, strong liquorice, cough syrup, mentholy ointments, all-crazy resins, this is the equivalent to JJ Burnell’s hardest basslines with the Stranglers. You may check ‘Another Camden Afternoon’. De nada. Finish: long, liquoricy, with some extraordinary balance between the lime, the mint, the liquorice and the resins. Thirty-one years, mind you! Comments: as a malt lover, I just adore this. Some unbeatable ueber-malternative-y rum.
