Developed in 1990 at Enmore estate in Guyana, this juice is the result of a distillation in one of the last 3 wood stills in the world, the famous still Versailles.
Located now at the Diamond Distillery, this still has gone through the centuries and is a true cult piece, as well as the Port Mourant and Enmore’s wooden column.
Aged 28 years in bourbon casks, I hope that time will have mitigated this typical woody bitterness with which I have so much trouble …
Buttered, fruity with apple, pear and a side glue / delicate solvent. I also find yellow flowers, a hint of violet and a little bit of woody bitterness, not too disturbing but present.
It is rather charming and fragrant … a delicate nose and quite fine.
“Versailles alert”, we are clearly in what we can expect from a continental Versailles without adding molasses …
Again, the years seem to have smoothed, polished the spirit that is pretty classy. It is buttered, oily, vanilla, fruity with a hint of almond that can give the impression of frangipane, herbaceous.
The origin of the fruit is more to look for the orchards than the tropics, it’s quite fresh and pleasant with some apple, cassis and peer. Some spices of which a slightly peppery aspect is to note, it is rather end.
The wood is present but not too much, just a small hint of metallic bitterness at the end of the mouth but without being predominant.
A beautiful expression of an old Demerara aged on our beautiful Europe for almost 3 decades … the price will necessarily pair unfortunately.
But this rum is rather fine and classy.
