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.
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.
Classic rum, vanilla and fruits on nose, medium sweet, warm long alcohol with again sweet fruity and nutty conclusion; very good choice for introduction to rum
Moj prvy RUM vybrany podla recenzii a bola to vyborna kupa! Sladky tak akurat s vybornou chutou a prijemnou vonou!
Loved the aging, and flavor complexity, but too sweet, almost bordering on liquer.
I'm no rum connoisseur, but I really enjoy this rum. Sweet without being overbearing, with hints of dried fruit (especially raisin), and a bit of spice. Very smooth with very little heat. A really nice sipper; I've never mixed it with anything.
This one is really very good rum. Good flavour, little sweet and fruity afterwards. I always keep one bottle in reserve.
Good tasting Rum, wonderful flavours, pleasantly sweet, but spoilt for me a wee bit with a too strong alcohol burn. Like I said, lovely flavours, but just it lacks that X-factor to make it extra-special for me.
Super molassy. Wich I love. Sweet yet spicy. Not at all woody like some other rums. Very plesant but a good burn.
I am so glad that I found this dark and beautiful rum
Got a chance to taste this one a quite some time ago. But what I recall, it was a pleasant experience and the rum left a good impression.
Watch out! Maybe the sweetest rum I've ever tasted.
Even with large amounts of sugar, it is light and pleasant.
Notes of fruits and caramel.
A good option if bought at the right price.
Cena vzhledem ke kvalitě přijatelná. Lze říct, že není tak sladký.
Prijemný rum, chut jemna do sladka, koniec dosť ostrý.
One of the rums you keep on hand for a little treat. Sipped with a bit of ice, very nice. The 15 and 21 are better.
On a list as a fave. It pleases the doing a and the soul.
I'm no purist so as a sipping rum the added sugar is fine. Mixing it with cola or something like that I'd imagine would be too sweet since you're adding two sweet things together.. but I'm sure some would still enjoy it that way. I always have some in stock.
toto je rum, ktorý pri svojej cene predbehne aj ďaleko drahšie rumy svojou chuťou.
One of the few bottles that I always have to hand. A great example of the style at an affordable price £40
I really enjoyed this one, high rating for good taste and not much after bite. Like it, pricey but good.
Caramel and toffee, sugary vanilla and a bit of spice. Smooth but not the smoothest in the price range.
This one is a very well made. A very pleasant sipping rum for a fair price.
Imo better then the El Dorado 15. Way less sweet but sweet enough...
Nose first a little flat but opens up wonderfully after 5-10 minutes in a cup. Rich and complex with vanilla, honey and molasse. After 15+ minutes there are hints of exotic fruites: banana, papaya and a little oak.
Taste is wonderfull, very well ballanced: honey and oak, not bitter nor dry, less complex than the nose but very smooth. Nice oily texture...
The finish is quite long: some oak, little vanilla, much honey and molasse, a little dry in the end but not bitter at all. Very inviting for the next sipp. Very very little afterburn.
Would buy again for 39.00$, but the Abuelo 7 that I bought together with this bottle was 34.00$ and was almost as good: less complex but with a richer nose and a more mouth filling texture and a little less sweet than the El Dorado 12. So I will go with the Abuelo 7 for my next purchase...
