Rum Enmore 1988/2012 TWA-The Nectar

 

The Rum: Enmore

Origin: Guyana

Distilled: 1988

Bottled: 2012, 264 bottles- 50.5 abv

 

The Nose: yep, welcome to Demerara country. Herbal and powerful, but with a pleasant sweet touch.Molasses and oak, and surprisingly fresh for an Enmore this old.I’d say… eucalyptus with a hint of smoke. And even some (I know, strange!) olive oil. This is rich and yet round, punchy and yet pleasant. Very promising nose indeed!

The Taste: Herbal and a bit drying, with nice wood without getting too bitter. Burned caramel and cooking spices. Nutmeg. But also that little sweet touch again: raisins and a delicate fruity side with some mango. Also a bit of liquorice.  Again a little smoke or tar if you like. Very phenolic, but not too punchy on the alcohol level.

Finish: all the good stuff from the taste reflects in the rather long finish.

Our Score: **** Excellent rum – alas very difficult to find. I wouldn’t mind having another one of these beauties.
