Default El Dorado Demerara Single Barrel

Demerara Distillers Ltd recently bottled a few cases of Single Barrel rum. Being from a single barrel, these rums aren't as heavy as you might think they would be, and lack the distinctive viscous, smoky oak flavors found in their Special Reserve rum. Quantities are limited so you won't find these rums everywhere.

I'm going to keep my eye out for some. If you happen to see any in an online store please let me know.

My understanding is the SB is currently made for and sold by one Duty Free store exclusively.

I don't know if this is correct but I also heard the cost is roughly $70 USD which definitely is not cheap by rum standards.

Only pic I could find. http://ravalonline.com/node/1213
Looks like a pretty heavy bottle. I'd love to get my hands on that rum. 70 USD is about 49 euro, not too bad considering I have to pay 41 euros for the 15 year old.

Interesting bottle choice. It looks very similar to the Tommy Bahama bottle. Much like the Trump vodka bottle as well. Seems to be a style choice when an upscale look is desired.

I don't care for the bottle style that much myself. I'd love to get it for the rum inside though!

Noticed the URL in my log file for referrers.

I took that photo at a recent trade expo it was the first time I saw El Dorado single barrel Rum.

I could call the company and find out how much a bottle cost if anyone is interested.

Is it true that only Trini/Tobago's Duty Free shop(s) carry it?

The Demerara Single Barrel is available at a few select retails stores. The distillery sells this rum to a few distributors and they determine where it is sold. Most of these decisions are made according to past sales so don't look for it in very small stores. There isn't a lot of these rums available. I'll see if I can find some retailers that can and will ship the Single Barrel in the US.

I should have written that Demerara Single Barrel will be available in a few select stores. It hasn't been released yet. This morning I was told by the importer that it will be available first in New York and New Jersey. I'll post a link to stores that sell it when it finally arrives. My impression is that the single barrel is lighter than the other Demerara rums since it is a single barrel bottling and not a blend of very heavy and lighter rums.
