This is a nice rum and probably ranks high for rums in this price bracket. For me though I’d go for the 15 year one.

This rum has an instant spice to it with an immense amount of sweetness and heat. Followed with some herbaceous and oaky flavors. Would recommend this rum as an alternative to the top top shelf

When you talk about getting great value for whatever you may be drinking, El Dorado 12 Year is just that. This is the perfect segue for an inexperienced rum drinker into the world of sipping rums without breaking the bank. This rum has an incredible balance between fruity aromas like banana and baking spices, while still finishing incredibly smooth and dry on the palate. I had the pleasure of tasting this rum for the first time alongside El Dorado's master distiller, Mr. Shaun Caleb. His kindness and knowledge alone should be enough reason to try. A "must-drink" for anyone looking to learn more about rum!

Nothing special. Its a good maintenance drink. Won't blow your mind but won't let you down either.

Nice cheaper alternative to the 15 year old with only a little bit more bite. Caramel tones with a strong rum and raisin flavour. Demerara rums really are my favourite.
