El Dorado 12-Year Rum is composed of a blend of aged rums, all at least 12 years old. The rums are distilled using a combination of stills including double wooden pot stills and are aged in bourbon oak casks.
Demerara Distillers of Guyana produces El Dorado 12-year rum and is the country's last remaining distillery, with origins tracing back to 1670. The name ""El Dorado"" references the legendary city of gold that is said to be in the country's Rupununi region.
One of The first Rum I ever tasted, and it is still In my Collection, fine for sipping 😊
Great option neat. sweet finish vs dry that works well as a nightcap. great option for the price.
I expected more form this rum, the rum was ok but I feel my anticipation clouded my judgement
Great stuff. I use for all drinks that ask for an aged demer
Classic dark rum with a cocoa ending. Burns a little. A good sipper. Some say it is too sweet, but I don’t think so. I prefer it on the rocks, because it become more complex and the flavours comes out. Well rounded.
Personally, I generally like much thinner and less sweet Cuban Rum. This rum is the exception. It is thicker and sweeter than I typically enjoy, but it is definitely not cloying. In Canada, Ontario it is a bargain at around $ 43.00.
I have tried the more expensive 15 year old, which tastes more like a Cuban rum, but the subtle under flavors and thickness just don't work for me.
This 12 year old is in a category all by itself.
Good show !
Delicious over a glass of ice at the end of the day. Sweet and spicy with no burn. May be a bit sweet for some.
This rum can go in all the ways. Straight, on the rocks or in a mix. Nice a sweet but a great smell
This isn’t really offensive in any way, apart from perhaps being a bit too sweet. I can’t really taste anything much more than sugar. I’ll drink it, but only if there isn’t anything more compelling on offer.
Min ingång till rom, den är lite väl söt men den kan serveras till alla i sällskapet och blir en bra diskussion för alla parter. Mycket bra doft men mycket av allt med bra avrundning men blir lite för söt i längden.
This is NOT a great example of Demerara. Too much sweetening done - It covers flavours badly. The age statement is hard to believe from taste, no oak present. Just burned molasses, and sugars.
Amazing taste, color and aromas. One staple in my bar for a sipping rum.
Excellent rum, nice honey taste and aroma of rosins. This is one of my favorites rum.
Perfect choice for good money. Prefer drink it straight
This is very good rum, better than diplomatico, better in taste and it is not so commercial.
Absolute perfection for a mai tai...this is my “go to” rum at the core my mai tai.
Nasládlý, voňavoučký, dlouhá dochuť v ústech, prostě paráda 👍
One of my favourite for an affordable price.
Tasty, full flavour, sweetish with vanilla.
Would always recommend this one if you want to sip a rum instead of mix it. Just a solid rum with an overall good taste.
For a realy commercial rum, which is sold almost anywhere, good. Price-quality is good. Nice to drink neat, as well as a cuba libre
Good quality rum although not quite in the top drawer. Worth buying.
This is a great, smooth aged rum. I got a sampler bottle of this 12 year when I bought a bottle of the 8 year. I look forward to adding a bottle to my collection. As always, I enjoy my rum over ice with a healthy splash of coke.
This rum has a wonderful dark color and sweet aroma. The rich complex taste is sweet but not overwhelming. This bottle will make an excellent addition to this tequila drinker's cabinet.
This is a sweet rum, probably suggesting that it has sugar added. However, it is a well balanced rum and has a great value for money. I am more into dry rums with no sugar added but I really like this one for when I have a craving for something sweet.
Realy enjoy this rum. Sweet without being overpowering, a little bit of complexity, and some nice flavours. I usually have this straight, sometimes with a bit of ice, and always enjoy it.
