Nice to have this with some ice and let it rest a while. I prefer sweeter liquors, but i think this is better than Zacapa 23

I see that I'm in a minority here, but I find this a very average rum indeed. A shame as underneath all of it, I think that there is a good rum to be had.

But, and it's a really big but for my taste buds, it is completely ruined by the addition of far far too much sugar. Makes it a very unattractive sipper. Fortunately I have other rums that I'm not completely liking that I have blended with it making a blend whose whole is a lot better than the sum of its parts.

I guess it's easy to say that they would do well to return to more artisan ways, but that's not the way things work.

I still don't like rum by itself, but the aftertaste of this one almost changed my mind. Great tiki mixer.

Lovely 12 year old sipping rum that's smooth and sweet with hints of caramel. Neat with two cubes of ice is perfect. Great quality for the price.

Good rum with a strong aroma and good taste of fruit, honey and vanilla. Good value for money.

Rhum avec beaucoup de sucre ajouté (~35g/L), trouvable à prix légèrement coûteux (40-50€) chez un vendeur de spiritueux.
Il m'a introduit tout en douceur dans le merveilleux monde du rhum, très caramélisé de par son sucre ajouté et n'attaque pas, il donne une porte d'entrée facile aux personnes qui sont attirés par la douceur du rhum, et une excellent transition vers d'autres rhums plus secs et souvent sans sucre ajouté.
Pour les plus habitués, il est toujours sympa d'avoir de côté pour être partagé ou siroté tranquillement si le sucre ne rebute pas.

Nice Rum but not as good as the 15-year old El Dorado.

El Dorado 12 letý ( Zlatý )
40% ( Guyana ) Anglický styl

Lihovar vznikl na přelomu 17-18 století, původně byl určen námořníkům, kteří se v Guyaně usadili při hledání pokladu bájného El Dorada.

Díky jedinečnému způsobu destilace a použití výhradně melasy jako základu tvoří El Dorado rum samostatnou kategorii karibských rumů – Demerara. Tím je také dána jejich obecná charakteristika: velmi aromatické, s plným tělem a bohatou chutí.

( Číslo 12 označuje nejmladší složku rumu v lahvi )

Názor : Pokud někdo hledá typického představitele rumu v této cenové kategorii okolo 700,- neudělá chybu. Rum je plný, jemně nasládlý s chutí kůže, dřeva a melasy v závěru pak do suchosti. Ideální na celovečerní popíjení. Určitě si pořídím vyzrálejší kousek této značky.
