Bristol Spirits Ltd import premium Caribbean rum into the UK and carefully cellar them to maturity in the country. They seek out small quantities, sometimes only single barrels from a single distillery, or a single estate or even a single still to show rum in its true unblended form. There are now around 12 rums in the Bristol Classics portfolio, most of which have been aged in casks in English warehouses for between 10 and 25 years. Each is from a single still, or a single estate. Interestingly the rums exhibit a range of styles easily equal to that perceived in fine Cognacs or single malt whiskies.
Bristol Classic Enmore 1988 Rum1980-1989, Anniversary / Birth Year, Rum, Traditional Rum
The Enmore Estate in Guyana dates back to 1840 and is based at Diamond Distillery in Georgetown. Distilled in 1988, Bristol Classic Enmore 1988 Rum is a classic example of fine Demerara rum. Matured only in American bourbon casks its pale golden colour is unusual for a 20 Year Oldrum. Light in colour but full in nose, deep fruit, burnt sugar and high wood tones give a clear cut introduction to a dry deep palate with toasted spice notes, firm spirit and a well controlled flavour profile, good weight and long dry aftertaste.
