Habitation Velier tagline the “House of Pure Single Rums” is part of the ongoing Gargano classification system.
Proposed a couple of years ago, Luca Gargano of Velier hopes to introduce a system of classifying rum, which will be embraced and used across the industry.
For more information on the system please see the following link which will give you more information.
Up for review is a Port Morant rum from the Diamond Distillery by Bristol Classic Rum.
Bristol Classic Rum have over the years released a number of editions of Port Mo(u)rant rums. All releases seemed to stem from a stock of rum dating from 1990 and 1999.
To date I have reviewed a number of Bristol’s rums and those have included two Port Mo(u)rants from the 1990 stock. To even things up I have also acquired some of the 1999 stock.
The 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.
Walter Hicks 125 Navy Rum hails from St Austell, Cornwall. Produced by St Austell Brewery who are perhaps better known for producing Tribute Cornish Pale Ale, Korev Cornish Lager alongside Bad Habit and Cardinal Syn real ales.
Products from the St Austell brewery are not only to be found in the South of England. The Nicholson pub chain operated by Mitchell and Butler stock a number of their ales and have exclusivity on a couple.
A 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.
Both 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 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.
