Berry Brothers Tasting Notes

Posted: December 28, 2015 in Guyana, Rum

Berry Bros ‘Enmore Guyana’ Demerara Rum 1988 (19 year old) 46%

Bourbon/ Dist: 1988 Btl: 2007

A typical, oily and pungent nose of salty, nutty, dried fruits with an abundance of linseed oil coating the dried fruit. A touch high toned and alcoholic but with time some banana and sub-tropical fruit even’s it out.

A very dry and intense palate, again with no shortage of linseed oil coated dried fruit. The alcohol is very piquant for 46% and dies out the middle and the finish. A bit short, although the dried fruit does return after the battering it takes from the alcohol.

Berry Brothers Guyanan Rum 1998 (14 year old) 46%

Distilled at the Diamond Distillery

Dist: 1998 Btl: 2012/ Tasted: May 2014

The nose is light and oily with a touch of ozone. Crisp, dried fruit with that classic Gyananan oily, edginess. A little on the straightforward side but pleasant enough. With time a light smoke note appears.

The palate is soft and oily, opening with a touch of vanilla, oily sultana, dried apple and light spice. Again fairly straightforward but it has a pleasant depth and intensity. Quite mouth-filling with a long citrus and dried fruit finish and a light, chocolaty wood tannin after-taste.
