Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Effusive aromas and aggressive character on this piece of distilling history, from Guyana's El Dorado.
This rum was made on an old, wooden Greenheart still built in the 18th century.
It has got a fabulously rich colour; deep amber.
Aggressive aromas of leather, pepperiness, demerara, coffee bean, chicory, anise, and a subtle fruity berry quality on the finish.
This is the most pedal to the metal of El Dorado's three single still series (Enmore and Versailles being the other two). Comparatively, the Versailles has the heavy demerara but is more subtle and delicate, with vanilla and a smidge more fruit.
The Enmore is demure on the demerara and has more chocolate and toffee.
They make another one using a Savalle still. It is a another premium rum and is not widely available. It is the next quality tier up.
It is an extremely high quality rum and a really cool chance to own something rather historic.
If they are out of your price range, their 12 y.o. is the top of the heap for off-the-shelf value.
The El Dorado Port Mourant is a Single Still Demerara Rum made in the double wooden pot still built for use by the Port Mourant estate in 1732. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
