The most famous female pirate, as renowned for her ruthlessness as for gender. Seeking adventure from the early years, she become an equal crew member and a respected pirate.
New Providence, the Republic of Pirates, become her place to be and this is where she met “Calico Jack” Rackham. She joined him and continued the pirate life, taking part in combat alongside the men, eventually to be named in “Wanted Pirates” by the Governor of the Bahamas.

“Oh, a new continental Enmore bottling at the horizon, originating from the Versailles still. Not always phenomenal, but always entertaining. The golden age of Piracy is the new single cask release by the Distilia Group who are also known for their High End Spirits shop named Whiskymarket.
Bloody cannonball, this is brillant! Versailles Still at its best. We tried a few MECs but this one burns them all. Plus all KFMs we’ve lately tried. Imagine sitting in the dirtiest harbour pub in Georgetown Guyana, back in the 18th Century. All on smoldering cuban tobacco leaves, pipes, dirty boots and old leather chairs. But also delicate and floral notes of fried coconut oil and lilac of that Creole meal on the plate in front of you. Oh and that camphor oil of that Voodoo witch adds a nice freshness to the experience. Demeraraness ahead!
Sweet, barrel heavy and herbal, the first sip conquers the palate like a galleon and takes no prisoners. The tobacco and earthiness just rage, but without exaggerating (does that make sense?) and without losing tie to that sweetness. Meaning, what’s so lovely is the tyipcal Versailles coffee bitterness and austerity, but without being too extreme at the same time (like we unfortunately know it from some KFM). See this as the criminal brother (or sister) of the REV Mark. It needs both to become a family.
Long like the mast of the galleon, with coffee, carob and molasses lasting for minutes.
In terms of marketing, we’re usually annoyed by the allegory of pirates and rum, because, as in the case of Captain Morgan, it usually refers to a cheap, adulterated spirit. Not at all in this case. This brew really puts you in that atmosphere and proves once again why Guyana/Demerara rum (in our eyes) is the king of the rum world.”

a nice dusty woodiness up front. Cold sauna and balsa wood, pipe tobacco, old leather. Dried banana slices. Then hints of camphor oil, tea leaves, sweet liquorice and dried thyme. Dried wildflowers too.
oily notes and citrus sourness at first. Lightly bitter herbs. Then mid-palate a wonderful hint of Mokatine candy comes out (look for it when you’re in Antwerp). I’ve had this before in Enmore. Cold coffee, cigar boxes and hay. The bitterness returns in the end, now on chicory.
long, on heavy coffee, dark chocolate, heavy liquorice and herbs.
Part of the appeal for me is in the typical coffee candy, but even when you don’t have this association, there is a lot to like.
