ABOUT

Crafted at Demerara Distillers Limited, this high ester blend, produced in Guyana, celebrates the depth and versatility of Demerara rum-making. Both rums LBI and DHE were distilled back in 2012 and aged in ex-bourbon casks before being blended together and bottled. Released at cask strength, this blend of rum has never-before been released to the public.

METHOD

La Bonne Intention (LBI) comes from the multi-functional French Savalle Still. This four-column metal still was inherited back in the 18th century, on the West Coast of Demerara. The expression is a medium-bodied rum with a distinct honeyed profile and was first produced on the now-closed La Bonne Intention Estates on the East Coast of Demerara.

The Diamond High Ester (DHE)  marque is produced by one small John Dore Double Retort Pot Still, that dates back to 1950 and is one of its kind at the Diamond Distillery. This high ester experiences a lengthy production process, with fermentation taking place over several months, and distillation at both a very slow rate and a very high reflux.

TASTE & AROMA

The rum provides aromas of figs and star-fruit with the infusion of spices such as cinnamon, clove and vanilla that are balanced by mellow aromas of toffee and honey with subtle undertones of banana. On the palate, a concise introduction to orange peel is followed by clove, dark chocolate, and hints of burnt caramel which will transition to a softer honeyed profile before finishing with a spicy leather aroma.
