Now this is some good stuff
What I wrote regarding the El Dorado 15-Year Special Reserve applies here as well. However the addition aging in ruby port casks have imparted a noticeable port wine flavor to the rum and IMHO it conflicts a bit. However I am not a fan of any sort of wine so I am negatively biased. However I kept the rating as an 8 because it is still smooth and I realize there are those who like wine and will like this rum. I just happen to think this one suffers somewhat but that's because I hate wine. Other than that this is a smooth rum, albeit sugared, and is an interesting variation of their 15-year rum.
I tried this on the recommendation of one of the bar staff at the famous original Rum Bar in the beautiful Whitsunday Isles in North Queensland. A very apt rum to try as we were celebrating our 4Oth ( Ruby ) wedding anniversary ! This rum does have a lot of port influences but as I like port , it wasn't a problem.. sweet , smooth and very easy to sip. A big fruit taste of course but in no way overpowering imho.. admittedly I wouldn't buy a bottle but a lovely rum none the less..
Eldorado Rum Special Reserve Rum 15 Year is blended with specially selected aged rums that have been aged in oak casks producing a fragrant rum with a refined, elegant and smooth finish.
Having tasted some other not as adulterated rums coming back to to this has me questioning is it worth the price tag. Yes it has a wine like finish but it's more than the 21 and that's a stellar product this is not worth it. Sad as I really like the 15 but that could be for sentimental reasons.
