El Dorado Rare Collection Enmore 1993

EL DORADO ENMORE RARE COLLECTION rum review by the fat rum pirateThe El Dorado Rare Collection will likely need little introduction.  This is a rum from the Enmore EHP (Edward Henry Porter – original owner of what was the Enmore Estate) Wooden Coffey Still.

Which is one the most heralded stills in DDL’s portfolio.  It is capable of producing a number of different marques of rum from light to heavy and is featured regularly in both El Dorado’s and other independently produced blends.

Premium Rum The Impossible Task? – Part Two

premium rum the impossible task part two by the fat rum pirateIn the first part of this series we touched upon how rums are labelled.  I used an example to show how confusing it can be to determine a Premium rum.

Marketing and packaging play a huge role in what the end consumer buys.  No matter who you are, you will encounter and be influenced by marketing at some stage.  Even if you think you aren’t.

El Dorado Rare Collection Port Mourant 1999

El Dorado Rare Collection Port Mourant 1999 rum review by the fat rum pirateA 15 Year Old Port Mourant Rum from El Dorado released as part as their Rare Collection.  The three rums in the Rare Collection were released simultaneously earlier this year.

It has been noted that the rums ages mirror three of El Dorado’s “Premium” rums. 12, 15 and 21 years old.  I’m not sure whether it is entirely deliberate, nor am I totally sure if the stills used reflect the dominant rums used in each of El Dorado’s regular expressions.  A spreadsheet of rums used in El Dorado rums was published a while back but has since been questioned.  To be honest all are blends anyway so its academic really.

Kill Devil Guyana 15 Year Old Rum review by the fat rum pirateBoth Kill Devil and rum from Guyana make regular appearances on these pages.  Up until now, not both in the same article.  Here we have another in the excellent line up of Single Cask rums from Hunter Laing’s rum offshoot.

Kill Devil Guyana is limited to only 276 bottles worldwide.  A 70cl bottle with a 46% ABV will set you back around £60.

Bristol Classic Rum Enmore Still 1988

Bristol Classic Rum Enmore Still 1988 rum review by the fat rum pirateBristol Classic Rum are perhaps more famous for their red labelled Port Mo(u)rants.  This 1988 Enmore Still bottling seems to have flown under the radar. It has not attracted anywhere near as much attention.

As this Enmore Still rum was distilled in 1988.  It is likely that it was actually produced on the old Enmore Distillery site rather than Demerara Distiiilers Limited (DDL).  The record books tell me that Enmore Distillery did not cease production completely, until 1993.
