Now this is some good stuff
Manage to get a sample of this. The nose is quite sweet, but not as cloying as the usual15 yr old, rich with some red winds notes surprisingly little alcohol fumes. Unlike El dorado standard expressions the taste is not overly sweet at al with some good complexity with a medium/long finish with quite a bit of oaky spicy dryness on the finish.
Although good it is way to pricey for me to justify to buy a full bottle of this.
All that Enmore...Raisins, dried fruits, coffee, dark molasses...Whoa! A good one. FINALLY no added sugar (I can scoop it in myself if I want to, thanks - much harder to get rid of the crap). The El Dorado boys finally allow their spirits to shine, after Velier showed them how. Amen.
Lovely nose with light caramel, oak, sweet tropical fruits and something mineralised and slightly spicy and chalk like. As the rum enters my mouth, again I pick up a mineralised character, light caramel and wood, but also subtle notes of cherries and ripe plums. It’s very, very good if a little light bodied, which is surprising, considering 21 years of ageing. The finish lingers for a good while with a warming sensation of the fruity notes mentioned above. Given the 56,5% vol. it’s very refined, but overall I still find it a little overpriced.
Great rum, so full of flavor, just like the other two in the same series. This is how El Dorado should be, without added sugar and high strength punch!
I like all the standard rum from El Dorado (12, 15 & 21) and of course the 25yo which is fantastic.
Tested this one during Birka’s rumcruise 2018 and didn’t like at all, but to maybe excuse myself I think it’s quite difficult to test that many different rums during a rather short time.
Purchased a sample of this rum for around £13 from Master of Malt the bottle usually retails fot £175. This rare expression from el dorado is divine. A definite finishing rum for the end of the night as it's easy to get drunk quickly with its hidden 56.6% abv.
It's a fine example of guyanese demerara rum a wonderful one at that. It reminds me of the el dorado 21 but much more powerful. It does not feel at all the strength and is so easy to drink. It's simply a wonderful expression!
With a nice amber color, this rum has notes of candied fruits like prune and apricot. There are also woody notes and after a long aeration, the exotic fruits that arrive. In the mouth, the woody takes the top with always the fruits that disappear slowly. The end is very long always on the wooded with light notes of tobacco. Great rum but expensive.
The El Dorado Enmore 1993 is a vintage rum of the closed Enmore Distillery from Guyana and was distilled in the famous Wooden Coffee Style. Then the rum was allowed to store for 22 years in Ex Bourbon barrels. In 2015, it was bottled with 56.5% alcohol in barrel strength without additives. The handcrafted rum is strictly limited.
The rum needs some time in the glass. Heavy barrel notes come up. Wood, smoke and a heavy sweetness. Tropical fermented fruits. Vanilla, too. The rum is very appealing but opens slowly. On the palate you get the heavy barrel notes again. Caramel and roasted vanilla. I get raisins and dried tropical fruits. Also orange and some liquorice. Dark chocolate as well as oak and bitter fabrics. The alcohol is very well integrated, but should not be forgotten while drinking. He can kick. It is all super complex. The finish is characterized by the long storage and only in the Aftertaste it is a little too weak for the age and the price tag.
The El Dorado Enmore 1993 is a heavy rum that shows it's long time in the barrel. Definitely the best El Dorado I've drunk. But also difficult to compare with the normal bottlings. If you like Guyana Rum, this is the place to be. But there are cheaper ones that also offer an intense Guyana taste. Despite everything, the Enmore Rum is something special and therefore somehow worth its money. For El Dorado fans definitely a must have.
Der El Dorado Enmore 1993 ist ein Jahrgangsrum der geschlossenen Enmore Distillery aus Guyana und wurde in dem berühmten Wooden Coffee Still destilliert. Dann durfte der Rum 22 Jahre in Ex Bourbon Fässern lagern. 2015 wurde er mit 56,5% Alkohol in Fassstärke ohne Zusätze in Handarbeit abgefüllt. Der Rum ist streng limitiert.
Der Rum benötigt etwas Zeit im Glas. Schwer kommen starke Fassnoten. Holz, Rauch und eine schwere Süße. Tropische vergorene Früchte. Auch Vanille. Der Rum ist sehr ansprechend öffnet sich aber nur langsam. Am Gaumen komme sofort wieder die schweren Fassnoten. Karamel und getoastete Vanille. Rosinen und getrocknete tropische Früchte. Auch Orange und etwas Lakritze. Dunkle Schokolade sowie Eichenholz und Bitterstoffe. Der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden, sollte aber beim Trinken nicht vergessen werden. Er kanm durchaus präsent werden. insgesamt ist der Rum sehr komplex. Der Abgang ist von der langen Lagerung geprägt und nur im Nachklang ist er mir für das Alter und dem Preisschild etwas zu schwach.
Der El Dorado Enmore 1993 ist ein schwerer Rum dem man seine Zeit im Fas deutlich anmerkt. Definitiv der beste El Dorado den ich getrunken habe. Aber auch schwer vergleichbar mit den normalen Abfüllungen. Wer Guyana Rum mag ist hier genau richtig. Es gibt aber günstigere die auch einen intensiven Guyana Geschmack bieten. Trotz allem ist der Enmore Rum etwas Besonderes und daher doch irgendwie sein Geld wert. Für El Dorado Fans auf jeden Fall ein Must have.
Today I got my hands on a legendary Enmore style rum. I was looking forward to taste it.
Let's see if it can meet my expectations. My bottle is fresh btw. I'm going to do a tasting again in some weeks. This rum needs at least 45min in the glas. When you get the flowers in the nose, it's ready.
The nose is deep, woody, dark with sweet notes and dry fruits like raisins and figs. From the wood profile you can say that it's from the woody EHP still. It's like a walnut tree with iodine from the smell.
As the rum gets warmer I get more honey and orange.
A good nose, also complex.
The taste starts sweet with a lot of dry fruits (raisins, oranges), followed by tannins and wood. It gets warm very fast in the mouth. I can't hold it back to enjoy the start for a longer time. The rum is viscous and warm in the mouth.
In the middle it get's more heavy with molasses and bitter notes of tannins, raisins are still there. The finish is spicy and dry with heavy notes, dry fruits and wood, iodine again. The aftertaste is dark with molasses, burned sugar, some mint and raisins. It reminds me again of ElDorado12 aftertaste.
Conclusion: This rum is old and complex. But the wood influence is too high. Maybe the 22 years of aging is too much. Therefore 88 points rating is appropriate.
