The first thing that comes to my mind when nosing this rum, is an old wooden shipdeck and big ropes. I pick up pretty heavy notes of wood and tar, but also a lot of spices like aniseed, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg. More discretely, notes of orange marmelade and caramel also peeks out. As it lands on my tounge, the wooden notes explode, but not in a particular dry way. The taste quickly transition into the spicy aniseed, and tar notes followed by a buttery, oily and nutty caramel, which work damn well, countering the initial spicy explosion. Cut the big pricetag in half and this would be a 10.

I'm a fan of authentic British Royal Navy rum, and man, this really exhibits the Demerara contribution to that classic flavor. Port Mourant is also the obvious source of that deep dark burnt molasses aspect to many of the El Dorado blends. For me, a lot of alcohol on the nose, but also the burnt caramel. Spicy hot on the tongue. Some fruit in the mids. Smouldering dark finish with anise.

Last 2 drinks for tonight were back-to-back testing of 1999 Port Mourant versus El Dorado 1993 Enmore. Both have a very nice bottle and label designs. Both are very expensive, so the bar is high. Port Mourant is closer to deep brown whereas Enmore is almost amber. Port Mourant has a combination of tar and rubber to the nose. Pepper is the first one to hit the palate followed with the burn from 61.4% alcohol. Interesting to try out, but I will stick into sweeter aged dark rums going onwards.

Can’t understand why this is not rated higher. I know it is not a “sweet”ride, but It’s powerfull, strong nose with a Dark taste. Sublime !

This is truly a very powerful rum. I do enjoy it, but it is without doubt not for everyone. The power in this rum is not balanced, and the alcohol got quite a burn. It's very interesting to drink it, and you can definitely taste some of the flavours you also find in for example el dorado 15 years old. For itself this rum is way to unbalanced, and would do better in a blend with some smooth rum to make it more balanced. But I regret nothing buying this piece of history. The price tag is a little off tho, considering how few people this rum appeal to

This is how I think El Dorado rums should be, no sugar added! and a good punch!

The looser in these special releases, this was thin, "hot" and burning, with little to show more than that. Sure it has Port Morant aniseed and spices, but...disappointing.

Very dry taste starting with short fruity tones ending with wood, an marine tones. Not burning at all, Inwould expect around 50% , not 61% ! Absolutely out of typical El Dorado sweet character. Similar to Hampden...
Interesting experience, but the price for bottle (2000Eur) is not adequate.

I like all the standard rum from El Dorado (12, 15 & 21) and of course the 25yo old one which is fantastic.
Tested it during Birka’s rumcruise 2018 and didn’t like it at all. It’s not pricewhorty in my opinion.
