DDL El Dorado Single Still Port Mourant 2009 40%

RX13844 Very good Pot Still Rum Under 100€
“Balanced flavors; typical PM notes; best for beginners; underwhelming 40% ABV.”

The "El Dorado Single Still Port Mourant" from Demerara Distillers Ltd in Guyana is distilled from molasses using a Pot Still with a 40% ABV. This rum boasts an inviting aroma of molasses, tea, dried fruit, woody notes, and dark chocolate. The flavor profile features bold woody undertones, licorice, vanilla, baking spices, and a hint of smokiness. Users appreciate its balanced complexity, highlighting the typical Port Mourant characteristics, although some find it a bit thin due to the 40% ABV. It's an excellent gateway into the El Dorado universe, making it ideal for both newcomers and seasoned enthusiasts seeking a nuanced experience with exotic fruit hints and a well-integrated oak presence.

How does this rum taste?

El Dorado Single Still Port Mourant (2009): A balanced, tropical rum with noticeable oaky and tea notes. Thin at 40% ABV, but a great starter for Demerara beginners. Lacks punch but has intriguing complexity. Pricey, yet enjoyable. 7.8/10.

“As with the EHP and VSG, a great nose that unfortunately - thanks to extreme dilution - cannot deliver on the palate as it actually could. Apart from the dilution, a beautiful PM with sweetness, licorice/aniseed, fruit, wood and without the often disturbing saltiness or too much herbs. It may have been sweetened a little here.”

“Well I was very exited to try those single still releases… this is exactly what I would hope for DDL released on a larger scale (and hopefully at a half reasonable price). All three show the common characteristics you would expect and love about DDL‘s stills. No need for blended in the barrel / finishes / obscure leftover casks. Unfortunately, the reduction to 40% ABV is basically a crime against humanity 🙈 While the noses are surprisingly intense, on the palate all three releases are way to thin to deliver the profile competently. Nevertheless all seem in a good place after 12 years of tropical aging and as there are also limited higher ABV bottles available there is a chance for genuinely amazing OB release from DDL in the future. Fingers crossed.”

“Heute mal im Vergleich drei El Dorado von 2009. Port Mourant RX13844, Enmore RX13123 und Versailles RX14577. Leider sind alle auf 40% runter reduziert, sonst hätte etwas sehr gutes entstehen können. Mir persönlich etwas zu dünn. Ansonsten durchaus gelungene Abfüllungen für den Einstieg ins El Dorado Universum, wobei ich den El Dorado 12,15 oder 21 hier vorziehen würde.”
