Mezan Belize 2008 Single Distillery Rum
This Vintage Mezan Belize 2008 Single Distillery Rum was initially aged in Belize in heavy-char American Bourbon barrels before being re-barrelled in used white oak Bourbon casks that had previously been filled with other Caribbean rums.
While being aged for 10 years, it spent the first 6 years maturing in the tropics followed by a further 4 years ageing in Europe.
The distillery is situated in Belmopan and uses molasses from locally crushed sugar cane. Which is naturally fermented and then distilled in a triple column continuous still.
