RUM NATION 2002 Enmore - 60th Anniversary LMDW
Rum, British Guiana, 70cl, Ref: 51948
This 14-year-old bottling distilled in a wooden Coffey still and bottled at cask strength contains all the ingredients for which this particularly original traditional rum is known. These include medicinal, almost clinical, aromas that develop into notes of citrus fruits and plants; a fruity, creamy attack that culminates in revealing notes of freshly cut sugar cane; and a spirited finish that brings out the notes of black fruits, musk and milk chocolate.
Profile: a delicate note of camphor on the nose leads into exotic fruit and mild spices. Intense medicinal character. Particularly fruity (Mirabelle plum, coconut), the palate evokes freshly cut sugar cane. Notes of black fruit emerge in an unusual finish.
Limited edition of 207 bottles

- Appearance : pale yellow with hints of green.
- Nose : powerful, rich. A delicate note of camphor leads into exotic fruits (banana, pineapple), acacia honey and sweet spices (cumin, aniseed). It then gradually becomes more medicinal, with notes of balsam and mustard. Enveloped in a dusting of vanilla, candied citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit) and succulents beautifully punctuate the palette of aromas.
- Palate : clean, sharp. The attack on the palate is particularly fruity (pear, Mirabelle plum) and creamy, completely obliterating the medicinal character of the nose. On the mid-palate, notes of freshly cut sugar cane are enveloped in tobacco and peppermint flavours. Allowed to breathe, it becomes more lemony and vanilla-like.
- Overall : long, silky. Again taking a different direction, the finish is filled with notes of black fruits (blackcurrant, blueberry, blackberry), musk, milk chocolate and cardamom. Gradually, still-warm cane sugar envelops the taste buds, permeating deep into the retro-nasal olfaction that also reveals notes of heady florals (iris, hyacinth). The empty glass is creamy, liquoricey and vanilla-scented.
- The brand
The Rum Nation range is the result of years of research and tasting. Launched in 1999, this range has a distinctly Latino style with rums from unusual countries such as Panama and Guatemala. Each release is carefully bottled at between 40 and 45% ABV, to combine balance, mellowness, texture and flavour. Fabio Rossi wanted to introduce fine spirits enthusiasts to new products from the Caribbean and Latin America, and was one of the first to explore the rums of Peru and Panama. The product of a three-hundred-year-old tradition, each rum has a flavour and a personality that offers a unique expression of its region and origins.
