Enmore 1988 32 Year Old Rum Sponge Cask Edition No.7 Refill Barrel ABV 48.1% 70CL with Gift Box


This is a single cask bottling of Enmore rum from Guyana, distilled in 1988 and aged for 32 years before bottling at natural cask strength. 

It is delicious, quite complicated old rum that tastes like a loaf of banana bread swaddled in bandages and left to glide serenely down a long, slow moving river. Please enjoy it with all the calm, grace and tranquility of someone whose main job is to quietly knit in armchairs on rainy afternoons. 

Nose: a profile that reminds me of the Long Pond 1941 I once tried (without taking notes). Lots of herbal notes (dill) and black olive tapenade, along with thuja wood, pipe tobacco and hints of banana bread. Some fennel and aniseed. Whiffs of menthol and old copper.

Mouth: now slightly less funky than I expected, except for a firm briny side. Plenty of resinous notes, with moderate tarry notes, slowly merging with sweeter fruits like banana and mango. A couple of raisins. Slightly burnt cake. Liquorice and tapenade again. Keeping a nice balance between drinkability and funk.

Finish: long, on aniseed, liqourice, tarry notes, Thai basil and brine.
