Now this is some good stuff
I drove another 16 miles past my beach vacation location to the liquor store that showed the El Dorado 2006 Single Barrel Port Morant in stock. Instead, I find this one in it's place on the shelf for the same price ($80 US). At first, I was quite pissed off and almost did not buy it. But my purpose was to finally sample a dry El Dorado rum, which is almost impossible to find. Reluctantly, I bought it. Then I found out that it is no longer available and went for $92. Two other reviews here also mentioned that this one is better that the Port Morant Single Barrel. This one is from the Enmore distillery. So basically, I lucked out on my purchase. Well not quite when it comes to my tastes! This is a very good dry rum, but it just does not have the WOW factor for me. I cannot even describe the unique flavors. The best thing going for this rum is zero added sugar. By the way, EHP represents the initials of the founder of the Enmore sugar refinery.
It’s truly amazing, like 12 but better, if you don’t like 12 then you don’t like things that taste good! Look, I love dry rums too like Foursquare and Hamilton, but I can enjoy...BOTH, what a novel idea!!! I’m no expert but I know this is a great sipper, sweet but balanced, a long fruity, raisin, molasses finish.
A very fine El Dorado, knowing the 12, 15 and 21 years old I had some expectations of spices and sweetness. To some extend you will find some spices, butterscotch, vanilla and oaks aromas but once you taste the sweetness is confirmed but without the over-sweetness that sometimes occurs.
After waiting you get some more banana and fruit to it, and some hints of coffee and leather that are really enjoyable.
For the story, the distillation happens in the Wooden Continuous Coffey Still famous to enmore...
Try it out!
Sweet apple aroma. Crisp light apple forward flavor as expected. I purchased this after reading the tasting notes on El Dorado's website. I was a little disappointed as it lacks the complexity of other rums of this price point. I was looking forward to the roasted coconut they claimed, but I failed to pick it up on my palette. Nonetheless, a nice supper in contrast to the sweeter runs in my arsenal. I'll try it neat next time to see if more depth comes through.
Brilliant Rum, Just the right natural sweetness. Was fortunate to pick 2 of these bottles up for $45 Canadian on a discounted sale.
As Nomad stated below 0-sugar.
