The El Dorado Single Still Enmore Rum is produced from the original EHP Wooden Continuous Coffey Still that was first constructed at the Enmore Estate in 1880. This still was named after the original owner of the Enmore Sugar Plantation, Mr. Edward Henry Porter, and was based on the original design of its inventor Irishman Aeneas Coffey. With the closure of this estate in 2000, this still was moved to the Diamond Estate. It is the last surviving wooden column still operating in the world today. This 12 year old Enmore Single Still was distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2018.
Immedately upon pouring the aroma shows itself from an arms length away. Notes of prune, plum, and peppercon with an air of robustness mixed with walnut. Palate is full and upon second sip hiting most parts of the mouth. It's drier than other expressions from El Dorado with strong undertone of char. Slight jammy fruit notes come through however the Enmore Single Still is dominated by oak, dark coco bitter chocolate and hints of tobacco leaf.
