RHUMB RUNNER, COLLECTOR CASK SERIES
Named ‘Rum of the Year’ in 2020 by USA Spirits, today’s single-barrel, cask-strength 11-Year Jamaica ‘Monymusk’ Rum is a must-have for spirits collectors. To sweeten the deal even further, we’ve also managed to secure an allocation of the 14-Year Diamond Guyana Rum, which also garnered 94 points and a gold medal at the USA Spirits competition last year. These labels are extremely limited: only 225 bottles of the 11-Year Monymusk were produced and only 219 of the Diamond Guyana. Both of today’s finds are part of esteemed independent bottler Rhumb Runner’s ‘Collector Cask Series,’ a lineup of rare, singular casks that are true “barrel to bottle” projects—no additives or manipulation whatsoever. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to collect these one-of-a-kind bottles before they’re gone for good!
The 11-Year Jamaica Monymusk comes from Monymusk Distillers in Jamaica, part of the National Rums of Jamaica. The name ‘Monymusk’ comes from the nearby sugar estate bearing the same name, which continues to supply the distillery with rich molasses. The 11-Year Monymusk was distilled in 2007 and bottled in 2018 at full cask strength, 67% ABV, and offers up seemingly endless layers of flavor. Aromas of banana, pineapple, and toffee lead into a rich texture and full weight on the palate, with savory notes of cloves, pepper, lime, and finally a honeyed sweetness on the finish.
The 14-Year Diamond Guyana was distilled by Diamond Distillery on the Demerara River in Guyana. Founded in 1670, the distillery is home to the famous EHP wooden still, the last surviving wooden continuous coffey stills. Distilled in July 2004 and bottled in September 2018, the rum clocks in at 59.9% ABV and boasts perhaps a more decadent profile. Initial aromas weave between brown sugar, vanilla, and marshmallow, which then lead into nuances on spicy ginger, coconut, and honey. The rum coats the palate and the finish goes on and on. Both of today’s rums are worthy contenders for any back bar. Secure your order today!
