Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Der er virkelig power på alkohol og masser af forskellige smage. Port Mourant er generelt ikke en rom for nybegyndere. Jeg syntes det er en fantastisk rom, og er lidt uforstående over for de mange lave karakterer.
udgivet i 2015. 61,4 %.
This is a great rum. Beautiful nose. Real navy style. Serious bite but in great balance. Complex with lots of dark fruit and burnt demerrara. Longer finish and this would easily get a 9. Pricey. Maybe a little overpriced but very good.
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.
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.
Aroma: Opálené dřevo, tabák, popel, koření (pepř, hřebíček) a těžké ovocné tóny meruněk a jablek. Krásná a komplexní vůně.
Chuť: Nasládlá, ovocně-kořenitá (pepř), kouřová. Plná a hutná.
Dozvuk: Lékořice, špetka pepře, lehká travnatost a poté spousta sušeného ovoce (rozinky, švestky). Vše je takové očouzené či "připálené". Velmi dlouhý.
Ochutnán vzorek / Celá lahev
S guyanskými rumy pořád bojuji, ale tento mi neskutečně sedl. Lehce kouřový, ovocný a kořeněný v dokonalém poměru. Hořkost v dozvuku minimální. Navzdory vysoké ceně jsem si lahev pořídil a během následného popíjení si u mě tu cenu obhájila. Zatím nejlepší guyanský rum, co jsem pil.
How do you ruin a port aged rum? Nose is very inviting even with a slight alcohol burn. Rancid grape taste overly harsh even though its cousins versailles and enmore have about the same abv and are way smoother. Sad because this brand is one of my top favorites. Would prefer a dos maderas or admiral rodney port finish.
"The aniseed is prominent and again its mixed with a kind of salty/briny note."
