El Dorado Enmore 1993 is a very limited edition with only 120 bottles allocated for the French market.
This is a rum distilled in 1993 in the Enmore wooden column still (continuous distillation), aged for over 21 years in bourbon casks, bottled brut de fût in Guyana at an alcohol level of 56.5° and not chill filtered.
Laurent's tasting note
Its colour is amber.
On the nose, it is very greedy but also complex. There is a lot of fruit in this rum: apricot, prune and, a little behind, peach. Everything seems to have been candied in syrup. The walnut and a roasted side bring a second layer of aromas. The alcohol is extremely well integrated, which is impressive. The rum is not devoid of freshness, which allows the whole to be very balanced. After a long period of rest, the banana appears quite clearly as well as touches of tobacco.
In the mouth, the alcohol is much more present than on the nose and the attack is relatively soft, almost sweet. Another surprise, the wood is very present and even tannic. The freshness remains and is even more present than on the nose. The fruit is much more discreet.
The finish is long and still very woody (and even slightly bitter). The tobacco, quite discreet, accompanies us, as well as timid notes of brown sugar.
"A great achievement from Demerara Distillers, who are trying their hand at this kind of bottling. The nose is so greedy that it calls for further tasting."
