How does this rum taste?

A blend of two Enmore vintages, Jack Tar's Alpha 1988-1990 reveals a slightly smoky, vanilla-rich, and mineral-esque rum. It's admirably smooth with its 51.6% ABV well-integrated, though some find it somewhat lacklustre in fruitiness and complexity. A very pleasant but slightly unexpected rum character.

“#4088 This is a nicely balanced rum with a warm palate and comparing it to the Omega a bit lighter though they should be almost the same. I love the wood and smoke that is there but not dominant which usually happens in rums this age. Good ABV integration and my shelves are well worth a bottle. Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass has more smoke and caramel.”

“Schöner Blend aus zwei verschiedenen Enmore-Vintages. Bestandteile der Blends sind drei Fässer des EHP-Marques (einmal 1988, zweimal 1990), denen eine leichte Mineralik, die mich an Versailles erinnert, nicht abgeht. Scheinbar enthalten sowohl Alpha- als auch Omega-Abfüllung denselben Blend, was mir ehrlich gesagt nicht wirklich einleuchten will - hier wäre das Spielen mit unterschiedlichen Nuancen doch die interessantere Variante gewesen…? Wobei ich festhalten muss, dass das vorliegende Ergebnis des Blends absolut zu überzeugen weiss. Ein exquisiter Rum. Bzw. zwei. Oder doch nicht?”

“Wenig Frucht viel Würze kurz zusammengefasst. In der Nase Rosinen, Gummi und etwas Mentholiges. Am Gaumen ähnliches spiel nur kommt noch der Holzige Part dazu . Nichts spektakuläres ... Danke an Adrian für das Teilen des Samplers👍”
