Holmes Cay Jamaica 2007 ITP 15 Year Rum
The Holmes Cay Jamaica ITP 2007 edition comes from the storied Long Pond Distilllery. Founded in 1753, Long Pond began its existence as a sugar estate and distillery in the Jamaican Parish of Trelawny, and the Long Pond Distillery is now a part of National Rums of Jamaica. This all-molasses rum is a single, low ester mark called the Ive Trelawny Pot or ITP. It was produced on the historic John Dore copper pot still and was 100% tropically aged in Jamaica in ex-bourbon barrels before being bottled in New York State in 2022 at 56% ABV.
Ripened tropical fruit on the nose leads to banana, mango and brown sugar on the tongue and a long and balanced finish of oak and tobacco leaf.
