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.

Opálené dřevo, ořechy, z lehka vanilka, pomeranče, rozinka, karamel. Hluboké, komplexní.

Toto je přesně rum podle mého gusta.
Před Vánoci 2021 jsem měl možnost objednat sadu El Dorado Rare Collection včetně tohoto kousku.
Spolu se Skeldon 2000 jsou z této sady podle mne nejlepší. Skeldon ne malinko jemnější a méně dřevitý, ale tento mi chutná také znamenitě. Takovýchto rumů více.

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.

Sweetness: 2/5
Fruits: 3/5
Flowers: 2/5
Spice: 3.5/5

Complexity: 4/5
Value (185€): 4/5

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.

This bottling of El Dorado Rare Cask is an Enmore that was produced in 1996 in the Wooden Continues style and was stored for 21 years tropical in Ex Bourbon barrels. Subsequently, the rum was bottled as a single blend in 3000 bottles with a cask strength of 57.2% alcohol without additives or filtration.

On the nose, the rum is hardly distinguishable from the 1993. I get dried fruits, vanilla, caramel and confectionery. But also orange peel and some solvent, which distinguishes it from the 93. Add Demerara sugar. A very nice nose. On the palate, the rum has a fuller body with candied fruit, caramel and a nice woody influence. In addition, prune, roasted aromas, leather and nut. The rum is powerful and full-bodied. The finish shows more wood with nut, leather, dark chocolate and some pepper. The rum is dry and slightly astringent.

A very nice Enmore, which clearly surpasses the older brother. Almost the same on the nose, the 1996 then shows a much higher complexity and a full body on the palate. The influence of wood is more noticeable and the finish is nice and dry, which is also the case with the 1993.

Diese Abfüllung von El Dorado Rare Cask ist ein Enmore, welcher 1996 im Wooden Continues Style hergestellt wurde und 21 Jahre tropisch in Ex Bourbon Fässern gelagert wurde. Anschließend wurde der Rum mit einer Fassstärke von 57,2% Alkohol ohne Zusatzstoffe oder Filtration als Single Blend in 3000 Flaschen abgefüllt.

In der Nase ist der Rum erstmal kaum vom 1993er zu unterscheiden. Ich bekomme getrocknete Früchte, Vanille, Karamel und Konfekt. Aber auch Orangenschale und etwas Lösungsmittel, was ihn vom 93er unterscheidet. Dazu Demerara Zucker. Eine sehr schöne Nase. Am Gaumen zeigt der Rum einen wese volleren Körper mit kandierter Früchten, Karamel und schönem Holzeinfluss. Dazu Dörrpflaume, Röstaromen, Leder und Nuss. Der Rum ist kräftig und vollmundig. Der Abgang zeigt mehr Holz mit Nuss, Leder, dunkler Schokolade und etwas Pfeffer. Der Rum ist dabei trocken und leicht adstringent.

Ein sehr schöner Enmore, welcher den älteren Bruder deutlich übertrifft. In der Nase noch gleich auf, zeigt der 1996er am Gaumen dann eine deutlich höhere Komplexität und einen vollen Körper. Der Holzeinfluss ist merkbarer und der Abgang schön trocken was bei dem 1993 ebenfalls fällt.

Destilováno / Nalahvováno: 1996 /2017
Rum zrál 21 let v sudech po bourbonu. Rum má značku EHP, což je zkratka pro Enmore Estate a Edwarda Henryho Portera, který založil palírnu Enmore kolem roku 1800.
Aroma: Skořice, pikantní koření, vanilka, větrová svěžest, pomeranče.
Chuť: Opálené dřevo, hořká čokoláda, zemitost, hřebíček. Lehce štípe.
Dozvuk: Opálené dřevo, vlašské ořechy, hořká čokoláda a opět odeznívající hořké dřevo. Delší.
Sladkost: 0/3
Ochutnán vzorek
Fajnová Guyana, ale na Diamond, Port Mouranty a Albion dosti ztrácí.
