Truly a fantastic choice
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 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.
Nose: The smell is complex. There is caramel, orange zests and bright wood (the nutty Enmore wood). Also Bourbon influence, vanilla, dry fruits and flowery notes. Very good overall.
You can explore this one further and find even more aromas.
Taste: The taste
starts with caramel, dry fruits (orange zest and grape seeds), wood and tannins
. It's not viscous or just a little bit. In the middle the rum became more heavy, spicy and bitter. I get orange zest, bitter notes of tannins, Bourbon wood with vanilla and wood varnish. The mouth gets dry, it's like you are drinking a Foursquare.
The finish is spicy, wood, grapes, orange zests, grape seeds and flowery notes.
The aftertaste is quite tasty with flowers, wood, orange zest and dry fruits.
This is a very good and complex Enmore. It's sharp, not for beginners. It's flowery but not as the SVW 1996 and it's not as viscous as Albion. I would rate it with 93 points.
Value (185€): 4/5
Fantastic value for the price. This one absoluley terminates the 25yo.
(Add a a little water to open up)
Nose: Brown sugar, caramel, milk chocolate, pruns. Also some younger tropical fruits.
Palate: Sweet, wild, complex, dry, dryed fruits, a little bitter, coffe, caramel, creme brulee, pruns, dark chocolate.
Finish: Fried fruits, fried banana, roasted nutts, burnt almonds, pepper,
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
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.

- chuť nasládlá, klasika El Dorado, síla % jemná, ovoce, koření, zlehka kávová a mléčný karamel
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.
