Damoiseau Millesime 1980 Rhum Vieux 18 Year Old
Rhums Damoiseau are distilled in the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe from 100% fresh-pressed sugarcane and no molasses - this results in a fresh character rum without any rubberiness.
After distillation, the rum is stocked in oak barrels that have previously been used for bourbon. Given the hot climate in Guadeloupe, the casks experience an evaporation rate of almost 50% after 10 years, while also imparting into the spirit a light brown colour.
This official bottling is the oldest rum from the Bellevue distillery we have auctioned yet, both in terms of age and vintage. Note also, it has been bottled at full strength.
