ENMORE 1986 55%

Rhum De Melasse, British Guiana, 70cl, Ref: 19922

Quantity limited to 6 bottle(s) by client.

Massimo Righi, owner of Italian wine merchants Whisky Antique, sells Scottish single malts as well as some absolutely remarkable rums under his Silver Seal label. Incredibly complex, this 21-year-old Demerara regretfully reminds us of the Enmore distillery closure in British Guiana in 1993. Fortunately, its two wooden distillation columns were transferred to the Diamond distiller

Profile: particularly radiant, grainy (ginger), powdery (cocoa) and saline. Opens up with notes of red berries (strawberry, raspberry).

Description

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : orangey copper with glints of green.
  • Nose : full-bodied, refined. Unusually opulent, the nose opens with pine resin, spices (star anise), ripe fruits (peach, apricot) and black liquorice. As it swells, it develops honeyed notes (lime blossom) and aromas of bitter orange zest. With spectacular presence, it shows an incredible amount of fruity, juicy depth while evolving notes of precious spices (saffron) and fresh tobacco.
  • Palate : firm, clear. Very different from the nose, leaving its honeyed, juicy register behind. The fruits and nuts here are dried before being candied (walnut, almond, apricot). This move towards more dryness is asserted on the mid-palate with a shift to a sunny, grainy (ginger), powdery (cocoa) and salty aspect. Citrus fruit zest (lemon, tangerine) drench the end of the palate in their juices. Remarkable.
  • Overall : long, complex. Opens with notes of red berries (strawberry, raspberry), coffee and molasses. It is evocative of a much greener, lusher landscape than the palate. Succulents rub shoulders with exotic fruits (mango, persimmon). The retro-nasal olfaction is particularly roasted and caramelised. The mineral aspect (tarmac) is as powerful as ever. The empty glass is heady, almost religious (incense, Armenian paper).
