1998-2019 (20y) Demerara.
Mark: MEEA
This is another kind of Enmore still with a lot of herbs and pencil shavings. I tasted it now for the third time and I got a good understanding of this rum.
This one can easy compete with agricole. It's has so much herbs and grasy notes, I can't believe it's made from molasses. But it's clearly an Enmore.
This bottling was distilled in 1998 in the French Savalle Still, an old column still. The plant can produce nine different styles of rum, from light to heavy, the so-called heavy bodied rum.
This single barrel is a medium-heavy rum that has developed grasy and herbal aromas.

A grasy nose with parfumed notes is my first Impression. There are clearly the typical pencis shavings. The nose is light with a lot of herbs, anise, orange peels, grasy and floral notes. I miss some intensive molasses aroma, but that's ok for now.
The taste is more intensive than the nose, with anise, citrus, parfumed notes and orange peels.
Some beeswax and pencil shavings are also there.
Good stuff, never had such one before in the pure French form before.
I would rate it with 84 points.

I mixed this one with El Dorado 1993 and got almost the Rum Nation 1997 Enmore nose. Now I have much more flavors in the nose. The taste became much better, strong, intensive, balanced but a little bit too wody and spicy. These two fits together and with both we can create a much better Enmore.
