The Holmes Cay Belize 2005 was tropically aged for 15 years in ex-Bourbon casks.  The column still rum was distilled in 2005 and bottled in 2020 at the Travellers Liquors Distillery, Belize City, Belize, Central America.

No sugar, color, flavor nor adulterations were added in the making of the Belize 2005, which was bottled at cask strength, or 61% alcohol by volume.

“Like our previous editions, we believe this cask strength Belize 2005 is comparable in quality and character to aged premium whiskeys or bourbons. We are proud to work with Travellers Liquors Distillery to showcase this cask strength, full 15-year tropically aged Belize rum.” said Kaye. “Holmes Cay was created to celebrate the world’s best rums for distilling artistry and transparency of production. With few opportunities in the United States to enjoy pure aged rum at full cask strength, we exist to connect spirits lovers to great quality, unadulterated rums.”
