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.
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...
Na El dorado 12 som sa velmi tesil. Pil som 8 rocny a chutil mi, nebol sladky, a bolo citit, ze ide o demerara rum, El dorado 12 ma na mna prilis vela cukru, stale sa da velmi dobre popijat, sladkost ale prebija ostatne chute. Za mna max 7
I like sweet but this was a bit narrow in the flavor palate. Mixes okay but a little heavy on the aftertaste. I read some great things about this but find it lacking overall and prefer other more balanced rums at his mid-$30's US range.
Per me il miglior 12 years provato, sapore un po' più light rispetto al 15 years ma comunque vale la spesa sicuramente. Dolce suadente molto equilibrato con un buon finale.
Absolut ingen äcklig rom men något saknas för att den ska nå upp till sitt 15-åriga syskon som är ruggigt god.
El Dorado 8 year is a completely defferent taste and aroma.
Both are sweet but this one is more creamy. 8 year is solid brown suger caramel taste.
I prefer 8 year.15 year is more tastefull.
Great run for mixing at average price. Honestly no more oakheart or captain Morgan for me ever!
Lite rå. Okej yngling, kul att ha tillsammans med "syskonen"
Just opened the bottle and first taste was very nice indeed, sweet and strong
Dobry rum a dost lacny, za tu cenu sa nic lepsie ani neda kupit.
Świetny rum, czuć że starzony, bogactwo aromatów, słodycz, wanilia, karmel, może owoce? Alkoholowość wyczuwalna na nosie już przy pierwszym niuchnięciu, jednak dobrze ukryta w smaku.. Świetnie zbalansowany na języku. Cena około 140 PLN za butelkę. Uczciwa.
Zdecydowanie polecam, do tej pory piłem jedynie solo, jednak myślę że do herbatki też sprawdzi się idealnie. Naprawdę dobry wybór, jeśli ktoś się waha to polecam.
Great sipper on the sweet side, full and deep bodied. Every sip stays in your mouth. Run to the shop if you haven't tried it, a premium rum for very little money.
I was enjoying every drop of this 12yo. It is one of my top sweetened rums. Highly recommend.
Final verdict: Maybe some day I will give it another shot
Прекрасный ром, мягкий, ароматный, достаточно сладкий, очень цельный, питкий, очень хорошо, не зря ему все дифирамбы поют. 9/10
One of the best value for money. A sweet rum full of flavours
Smells alot of caramell and vanilla with a depth. A bit to much alcohol for the nose.
First taste is to much alcohol but let it sit for 10 minutes and its lovely. Creamy caramel, vanilla, butter in a nice balance with the alcohol. The aftertaste is to die for. Like an old school butter caramel Werthers Original. "Well, now im the grandad"! :)
Straight up... few minutes in the glass... speechless
I found this rum to get better as I went on with my drink. Enjoyable but I wouldn't rush back to it.
