Nice collection. Hang on to them as aged rum becomes more popular distilleries are holding back on shipping rum to be bottled other than at the distilleries.

No I don't have all of them just a few!

But it was to contribute to the sit because nothing is written about those rums.

It would be nice to find on this web site all bottles of all the independent bottler!

cheers

NOW i get all demerara rum crazy! i`m especially lusting after that red Skeldon 1973....i only have one of these rums, the Uitvlugt 1990 Full proof..and its GOOD (and almost finished) but strong 132 proof, so i mix it with other demeraras or use as float But these are so expensive about at least 120 euro a bottle) that i can rarely by me a bottle..which is a bit of a problem since i want to write about these good demeraras.

It will take me some time to get to the 3rd demerara rum post simply because it will take me long to collect a few of these to try out. The Boozefairy doesn`t carry these kind of exclusive products..

well that's a quick link! ;-)

I got the chance to taste the Skeldon 1978...woaw it was fantastic extreamly long powerful, dry and with a medicinal taste with hint of liquorice! The after tast is very long. I would (will) pay 200euros for that bottle!

Unfortunatly the port mourant 1993 was really really bad! Dry too strong, no interesting flavor as usual! I wont pay 90euros for that!

But before I wanna buy some silver seal a samarolli...

last week I bought 3 bottles of bristol classic port morant distilled in 1988 bottled in 2000 for 32 euros a bottle! ;-) I was very lucky to find that shop unfortunatly doesn't ship outside France.

32 euros..well THAT was a steal..yeah just get`em whenever you can!

As for paying the higher prices..i would too and i have done it as well but..before you can do that you must first have those euros! and that my friend, is the problem..more often than not!

But i`ll slowly stock up..its just that it takes time.

And thanks for the tips on how the rums you tried tastes, its always a valuable guide even though taste is personal. But with those prices you want to be a bit careful and check around first for reviews if there`s any. Its rare with these rums..

But i have found that on Rum Clubs website (use babelfish on the whole site if you can`t read italian-like i do) you will find lots of discussions and info on these demeraras both on the site and in their forum.

They LOVE these rums!

I'll see what I can do about adding these private labels. I'll need a contact for the bottler. If someone would ask them to register here or contact me I can take care of the rest.

I really, really have to give them kudos for the bottles and labels. Those are absolutely superb. Not flashy, but old-fashioned in the best possible sense. They look very dignified and tell you exactly what you want to know.
