Two recent Velier bottlings of Beenleigh have landed. It's difficult to say which is more desirable. Considerably older than the first edition, the 2006 distillation was also produced via a single column still, then re-distilled in a copper pot still. Reported to be the oldest Beenleigh ever offered, a spell in large brandy vats was followed by first fill x bourbon barrels and a final finishing in historic Kauri pine vats at the distillery in Eagleby in Queensland. A genuine landmark for Australian rum and an obvious collectable, over 43% was lost to the angel's share during its lengthy tropical maturation. Nothing was added before bottling at natural strength of 59%. Very limited stocks.
