„Lots of dark, toasty associations. Lots of licorice and plums. Demanding rum that needs a lot of attention, but then rewards with an uncanny complexity and sophistication. Outstanding 1992 Enmore!“

„Wow! Enmore at its finest: licorice, leather, plum, wood...positive surprise! For me, in the absolute top group of 1992 Enmores, because here, despite the many heavy flavors, an almost filigree profile is created, which comes along a little less heavy than the other releases, but exactly by this "lightness" in a positive sense independence. Downright noble - or simply excellent.“

„Un très vieil enmore avec ses marqueurs typiques : boisé sombre, pruneaux confits, chocolat, épices, vieux cuir. C'est super bon, super bien fait. Très belle sélection. Merci a l'application et à rum sponge pour le jeu qui m'a permis de gagner les samples!“

„An Enmore from a surprisingly unexplored vintage, despite its incredible qualities. The nose is very warm, bursting with spices of all kinds (pepper, licorice, vanilla) that combine well with the dark, sweet oakiness typical of Enmore of yesteryear. Empyreumatic notes (smoke, roast, tobacco) are counterbalanced by prunes, raisins, tea and aromatic herbs. A homogeneous, intense and elegant nose. On the palate, a gripping, complex and aromatic rum is revealed. Empyreumatic flavors lend a dark, powerful edge to the palate. This sensation is reinforced by wood, leather and dried fruit, giving a warmer, more tannic feel on the palate. However, floral, tea and herbal scents provide a welcome breath of freshness that balances everything out. The alcohol is well integrated. The interminable finish is bitter, heavy and rich, with notes of dried fruit, tobacco, wood, spice and empyreum. A final, rather greedy but dry sensation that signals the end of the final bouquet. An exceptional Enmore, very well selected by the bottler.“

„A rum tasted online with Angus MacRaild. Strong color. Angus seemed proud of his choice for this Enmore, a distillery (mark) he considers the most interesting in Guyana. The nose is dark and deep, with sandalwood, licorice and fresh tobacco. The palate is a continuation of the nose, with more vigor. Still sandalwood and licorice, but also dried fruit (prunes). The finish is long, with the same sandalwood, woodiness and freshness. I never tire of smelling the empty glass, which tells a medieval story of a castle smelling of smoke, with the door to the herbalist's shop wide open. My favorite of the evening.“

„Wow, this is a very good Guyana. Extremely well balanced not only in the ABV but also the wood. Usually this old rums are dominated by the wood, but not this one. Fruity with some really nice spices and caramel. The finish is extremely long and nice. I had to drink water 3 times before I was ready for the next sample! Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass is equally wonderful and I can pick up some chocolate and faint leather.“

„Wow. Tatsächlich mein erster Enmore 1992 und das ist eine herausragende Abfüllung. Man kann ewig riechen & schmecken und findet ständig etwas Neues. Tolle Erfahrung den trinken zu dürfen im April Lottery Tasting mit Angus. Auch spannend die Hintergrundstory zu hören.“

„Rum Sponge - RumX-live-Tasting, der Dritte des Abends und für mich eine Highlight, wie ich auch erwartet hatte. Alt und echte Fassstärke. Nase: unheimlich dichte und intensive Aromen. Sehr vollmundig und delikat. Sehr dunkel-röstig und dabei doch fruchtig. Getrocknete Pflaume, getrocknete Aprikose und getrocknete Bitterorange. Hinzu kommen viel Lakritze, Backgrwürz und Leder sowie alte Möbelpolitur. Eine Nase zum ewig dran schnüffeln. 9,2 Gaumen: ja wunderbar! Vollmundig, intensiv und doch ausgewogen. Holzig-röstig-würzig, aber von allem nicht zu viel. Ein ordentlicher Schuss Holzsäure zu Beginn, dahinter Lakritze, fette Pekanuss, Umami, vielleicht auch Tonkabohne. Viel sauer-herber Melassesirup. Aber auch getrocknete Pflaume und getrocknete Blutorange. Tolles Aroma 9,2“

„Ein sehr dunkler, floraler und rauchiger Enmore, mit ordentlicher Ladung Erde und Leder. Viel Frucht gibt es leider nicht. Ganz kurz sogar etwas Speck an der Nase, was mich eher abstoßt als anmacht. Dunkel, viel Leder, würzig und erdig im Mund. Zum Glück dann etwas mehr Frucht mit schwerer Süße im Abgang. Insgesamt leider nicht meine Lieblingsaromen, ich erkenne aber an, dass es sich hier um einen komplexen und hochwertigen Rum handelt.“

„A very good Enmore that is missing a little fruit to reach the 90 or more points level. Still has a lot of aromas to give in both the nose and the mouth with a nice long finish.“

„RumX Community lottery tasting and the highlight nicely placed in the middle. An Enmore that makes you shine. Not too intense there are others. But fantastically balanced and aromatically diverse. With a little time in the glass even a little spicier. There remains only thanks to RumX and Angus that I was allowed to try this great stuff 😊“

„Without direct comparison, a rather dry, somewhat less fruity 92 Enmore with a lot of barrel influence.“

Profile picture of user

„Powerful and heavy aromas rise from the glass! After a while, however, delicate components such as fruit and esters join in. The alcohol does not interfere a bit. This is already off to an excellent start! On the palate, the impressions of the nose are mirrored almost one-to-one and the emphasis shifts towards wood, licorice and dark chocolate. It becomes bitter but not too bitter. The flavors stick to the palate for a very long time. With more fruitiness, this would be a near perfect rum for me. Unfortunately, these old Enmores are not cheap.“
