L’Esprit Rum Uitvlugt 1999-2020 56.4°: Description and customer reviews

Esprit Rhum Uitvlugt 1999-2020 is a bottling commemorating the 10th anniversary of the French spirits selector. For the occasion, here's a great Demerara rum from the legendary Port Mourant still. This pot-still, with its wooden vat, is now owned by DDL and its Diamond distillery, which houses a veritable living museum of Guyana rum.

But why Uitvlugt, you may ask? Well, because in 1999, the Port Mourant still was located under the roof of the Uitvlugt distillery, which also closed its doors the same year.

This molasses rum was distilled in October 1999 and bottled in October 2020. It is therefore 21 years old, and comes from a single cask bottled brut de fût. It is limited to 208 bottles only.

Nico's tasting notes

The nose opens with a funky rum, both fruity and coppery. It's underscored by a woodiness that sketches out chocolate aromas, before giving way to toasty oak, with a fiber that's still damp and imbued with an undergrowth ambience.

On aeration, this typical Port Mourant profile shows itself in a delicate, mellow light. Exotic fruits sit comfortably on a mattress of still slightly green almond powder. The rum carries a few malty, cozy touches, just caressed by toasted oak.

Just a few drops on the palate reveal the massive concentration of this rum. With its coppery, mineral notes, it takes us right up close to the still. It then goes on to roast nuts until they're coated in burnt caramel, then caresses the walls of a heavily toasted cask.

The finish offers a somewhat mineral texture, followed by a long finish of candied exotic fruits.

"A very old, well-concentrated Demerera, which has had time to draw its richness from every nook and cranny of the cask..."
