Rich caramel, vanilla traces, and pleasant wooden notes on the nose, marking a powerful statement. On sipping, you'll find a sophisticated balance. Despite its strength, Hamilton 151 manages to deliver a smooth mouthfeel, without scorching the palate. Here's where you discover robust flavors of dark molasses, leather, and tobacco mingling with a hint of dried fruits. The aftertaste leaves you with a long, warming finish, lingering traces of exotic spices, and a touch of smokiness. It’s an adventure of flavor, not for the faint-hearted.

Production Notes

Hamilton 151 Overproof Demerara Rum is produced using matured, traditionally-stilled rums from Demerara Distillers in Guyana. These rums are distilled in the Enmore wooden Coffey and the Versailles single wooden pot still - two of the world's only remaining wooden column stills. The uniquely long fermentation process imparts this rum with a distinct depth of flavor. These factors contribute to a rum that stands out in its class, highlighting the significance of traditional techniques in creating a rich, intense, and complex product.
