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.
Sweet, smooth and oaky. More like sirup. Complex Taste under the sugar hood. Vanilla Notes and Toffee smell. Old Fashion Ron. Reminds me on 7 year Havanna but Way better. Sipping recommended.
Very similar in taste to the above, but a bit richer. Not sure how the Venezuelans are still producing anything aged as the economy is in ruins, so I like to think that this rum still holds true to tradition.
If you like sweet rums, this is a great choice. Nice, well-balanced flavors with a lot of sweetness. However, on the nose this rum is not that good. It smells like the cheaper rums with quite a strong smell of alcohol.
Like it with good flavor on first drink.But flavor is not taking upperhand.
But burns a bit too much for me.
But still very nice on ice.
Dobrý rum za málo peněz. Nenadch ničím zvláštním, ale stejně tak mně na něm vůbec nic nevadilo. Pro občasné popíjení ideální. Trochu ostřejší závěr, na začátek sladší ale ne moc.
The taste is good and fine. Little sweet. But the aftertaste is strange. It looks à little chemic.
I have a bottle of this at home, feels more like an after dinner drink than a sipping rum. Still quite nice and would recommend.
Good tastfull rum. Full favour, not to sweet. Price / quality is good.
Very nice rum, not difficult to drink, nice for beginners.
Very nice, little bit sweet but not that much. I really enjoy it.
Good sipping rum. One of the better ones. Aroma is pleasant and it has a very smooth taste and finish.
En ok rom til en god pris. En rom man altid bør have stående i skabet. Er rigtig god i en Dark n Stormy, men er også til at nyde alene. Er en anelse sprittet, men ikke så det bliver for meget. Skal dog trække lidt først. Skal helt sikkert have fat i den 21-årige.
I don’t like this rum. Fells bitter without anything special to find in it.
Your review – you could include things like color, aroma, body, taste, finish, spice, smoothness… really anything you want! You can also share an optional picture of the drink (or better still - you enjoying it!) by attaching a photo below.
Nose: Strong salted butter toffee note, then candied almonds, vanilla, allspice, raisins and hint of sweet coconut flakes and maple syrup.
Taste: Like the nose. Syrupy sweetness. Way too sweet for my taste
Finish: sugary smooth, medium, oaky with a little acidic port wine note on the end. The syrupy sweetness, acidity and oakiness dont work together, for me atleast.
Overall: Could be great but is way too sweet , after a small 15ml pour i've had enough of it for the day. But as a tiki mixer, this is fantastic stable product to use. Im sad they decided to add so much sugar to otherwise lovely rum.
Lite rå. Okej yngling, kul att ha tillsammans med "syskonen"
I was very hyped about this before I tried it, and what a let down. ok! Not that as if the world had ended but big enough for me... Just by the label I was expecting too much. Demarara, 12 years old, Finest... But as you know by now, the labels are not a worthy information holder on rum bottles. This rum is good for mixing and no-so-bad for sipping, but I rather stay with ginger ale addings.
Vanilla and cinnamon notes, bit of caramel. Flavor is great, but super sharp at first. Smooths out as the drink goes on.
Best rum under 20 eur. Ok taste. Not something I would buy to home bar but great within given limit.
Definitely a quality aged rum, but there's nothing in particular that really makes it stand out.
I have mixed feelings on this one. Taste was not very soft and taste was not well balanced. I expected more from this bottle but this is matter of opinion.
Good, but a bit too sweet. Nice for cocktails maybe
Nepříliš výrazná nebo specifická vůně. Chuť pouze sladká. Trochu fádní.
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.
