How many bottles of this rum have been produced? On your website you state, that only 3000 bottles were produced in 1999. My bottle has a small label which says it is bottle 0324 of 2008. Do you have some of the rum stored in steel tanks or something similar and bottle it every year?
I also saw varying proof statements on the 700ml (40% abv) and 750ml (43% abv) versions. Why this difference?
Sorry I did not respond to you earlier but the days seems to grow shorter - probably need a 30 hours days.
If you love the 12 years and 15 years then you will go head over heels in love with the 25 years. This rum is so soft and smooth it is like velvet. It disappears from your palette before you realise you are drinking it.
I can tell you the exact number of bottles that have been produced so far but it is not very large. I'll try to get the number and give it to you.
No we do not have the rum stored in steel tanks or any such thing. As rums from our warehouses come to age then we blend and bottle. Because the minimum age of the rums in the blend is 25 years old the quanyity produced is limited. The 25 years was actually produced as a one off rum for the millennium. We had never planned a 25 years old rum hence when the demand came we could not supply as was required.
The 700 ml (43%) is for the European market and the 750 ml (40%) is for the US, Canada and other markets.
