During my current caribbean rum-spree, I have found all three of them at most taxfree shops from Venezuela up to Barbados. As a bonus, I was offered the PM at the Demerara Rum Heritage Centre in East Bank Demerara. Sorry to say, while the single cask might appeal to some, I will still regard the ED 12 as my guiding star on the oceans of rum...

The Heritage centre is a really ambitious project by the DDL, and I encourage everybody to pay them a visit if in the area!

Yes, I agree that these single barrel sets are something of a "study" in rum blending, technique, craft skill.....


Damn, this El Dorado Single Barrel/Port Morant is pretty good stuff on its own. Yes it is a part of "study" on blending. Yes, it's not a finished product. But, its no gimmick, either. I have taken a month to get to know it and can say that, while not a "polished entry into the pantheon of great sippers", it is quite involving and, maybe because I am just slow on the take, not all that easy to read. It is a great buy now that I bought the last of it on sale. But, aside from price, I like it. The PM is a wild spirit with a slightly medicinal nose. That's not really a bad thing....

At the initial sip, a gentle sweetness hits the tongue. And afterward, a warm peppery finish lingers.

Anyone else like this rum?

I've just bought a bottle of the "Port Mourant" Single Barrel and I'm very pleased with it. Actually, that's an understatement - I think it's magnificent.

I can well understand why it might not appeal to fans of the 12 year old or the 15 year old. PM is less sweet than the 15 year old, and much less sweet than the 12 year old. However, for a pre-dinner drink, it's up there with the best of them.

Incidentally, the current 12 year old is not as good, in my opinion, as the original 12 year old (King of Diamonds). They didn't just change the shape of the bottle, they changed the recipe as well!

Glad to know that I have been able to have a loyal follower of ED 12. Like I will tell people when sampling ED rums, if you want a rum that gives you a big mouth feel, leaving that chewy dried fruit flavour on your palate, smell like Christmas black (fruit) cake and lasts a life time then it can only be ED 12.

With respect to the Heritage Centre, I have been promised a number of artifacts of Guyanese rums. I am hoping that one day it can become a centre of rum history in Guyana. Thanks for your encouragement.
