Third Base Market & Spirits proudly introduces a rare treasure for the discerning rum aficionado: the La Maison & Velier Guyana 1998 Rum. This exceptional spirit has been matured for a quarter of a century, offering an incomparable journey through the complexities and nuances that only time and expert craftsmanship can unveil. Distilled in the heart of Guyana and carefully bottled by the prestigious houses of La Maison & Velier, this rum stands as a testament to the lofty standards and innovative methods that have defined these respected names.
The La Maison & Velier Guyana 1998 Rum is enveloped in a mesmerizing mahogany color, with luminous ruby-red glints that catch the light as you pour. Its languid legs on the glass promise a viscous, full-bodied experience.
The olfactory profile is nothing short of transcendent. It's a profusion of well-integrated aromas—demerara sugar, exotic spices, and layers of dark fruit including prunes, black currants, and overripe bananas. The complexity of the bouquet is amplified by tertiary notes of leather, oaken vanilla, and the subtlest hint of medicinal herbs.
Taking a sip is akin to traversing a rich tapestry of flavors. The entrance is strikingly bold, with the high ABV announcing its presence but never overwhelming. You'll find the warmth of Christmas spices—clove, cinnamon, and star anise—blended impeccably with aged tobacco and cocoa. As the robust flavors unfurl, they reveal subtler undertones of tropical fruits like papaya and mango, framed by the spicy kick of white pepper.
The finish is prolonged and reverberating, gracing your palate with a lasting impression of molasses, toasted oak, and the mellow warmth of aged leather. It leaves behind a delicately balanced sweetness, demanding contemplation and respect for the rum's considerable age and intricate composition.
While this rum stands as a sumptuous sipping experience on its own, it also pairs beautifully with dark chocolate truffles or a plate of assorted artisan cheeses. Adventurous mixologists may also utilize it to elevate classic cocktails, rendering them masterpieces of layered complexity.
Third Base Market & Spirits is honored to offer this unparalleled expression of aged rum mastery. With its intricate flavors and evocative nose, La Maison & Velier Guyana 1998 Rum showcases the sheer magnificence that rum can attain. A bottle of this caliber is a timeless investment in your sensory education, awaiting to be uncorked and thoroughly savored.
