This is without doubt one of the best (and most pricy..) rums I've tasted. It is complex and delivers an explosion of delightful flavours. Before this rum, I thought dry rum wasn't for me, but damn this rum proved med wrong. You barely notice the high amount of alcohol. It doesn't burn in your mouth, but you can feel how the liquid evaporates in your mouth and gets absorbed by your taste buds.

I will do a cross tasting with SVW 1996, ElD Albion 2004 and Skeldon 2000.
I’m very excited. I know already the Enmore 1993 and Rum Nation Enmore 1997 (19y).

This nose is a little bit more similar to the SVW than Albion and Skeldon, because it’s more flowery and shaped.
Skeldon and Albion are more mellow (or viscous), this one is sharper or clearer.

I get caramel, honey, herbs and orange zest first. These base aromas are in all four rums, they are very tasty for me.
Then some hints of anise, wood and flowers. The flowery notes are not that intensive as in the SVW. But more pronounced than in other two rums. I would say it’s a little bit more complex than Skeldon and Albion and the most similar to SVW.

The taste 
starts with caramel, dry fruits, orange zest, herbs, wood and tannins
. It not as viscous as Albion, but more shaped like the SVW. Although the SVW is coined by the flowery notes.
In the middle the rum became more heavy. I get orange zest, bitter notes of tannins, wood, hints of anise, burned sugar and wood varnish. I miss the grains and the flowery notes, but it's still the most similar rum to SVW.
The finish is nice, wood, honey, orange zest, wood varnish and flowery notes shows me, that this one is carved from the same cloth as the SVW 1996. But there are still many differences in the initial and the middle taste.
The aftertaste is quite tasty with flowers, wood, orange zest, mint and dry fruits.

This is a very good Enmore and more complex than Albion and Skeldon. It goes in the direction of SVW 1996, but it can't reach that level. I would rate it with 93 points.

Complex taste. Smell is super.
wood, vanilla, dried fruit, very important smeel. Better to be warm to taste, e.g.keeping the glass in the hand, can exploit better the taste and flavours.
Need to be rhum skilled to be understood cometely and appreciated. Not sure is good for beginners

Rum tasting in the Finnish wilderness with my good old friend continued with El Dorado 1996 Enmore. Beautiful bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Plenty of fruits and some oak straight to your nose and palate when neat sipped. No added sugar at all, so very dry burn at the end. One of the best special edition El Dorado runs out there.

Totally rocks, a great deep dark Enmore that leaves no issues. No sugar-sweetening, THANK GOD. Let the spirit speak, not drown it in sugar.
