A pleasant surprise and great Demerara rum. Before this rum I had only tasted more Spanish style rums and this broadened my view.

Some reviews state that sugar was added or artificial sweeteners. Not quite sure how this rum has high alcohol to the nose with a strong bitter burnt taste. I specifically bought this in hopes of finding a "Sweet Rum". No go for me.

This one is a lot sweeter and less punchy than the 15 yo and to me this one is best used in cocktails but can sip too, if only it didn`t have so much sugar added, 36g/L is a LOT.The 12 year old is aged in used whisky and bourbon barrels. In 2006 it was reformulated, It has tasting notes of fruit, tobacco and orange peel and has tropical fruits and spice nose.This rum contains predominantly copper coffey still rum from Diamond blended with the double wooden pot still at Port Mourant and marques from the Enmore wooden Coffey.Take out the sugar that was added and it would been a great rum.

A rum that I find so very enjoyable, especially considering the price. The nose is full and a little spicy with notes of rounded oak, leather, and sweet citrus.
The full demerara palette is smooth with molasse sweetness, tobaco, distinct citrus undertones, some barrel notes and perhaps a bit of liquorice. The aftertaste lingers with a cosy, lightly warming sensation.

Kan sagtens drikkes rent, men er dog også ganske forrygende til en rom og cola. Vinder af mange priser. El Dorado er når rom er bedst.

Blev bla. Drukket af den Engelske flåde helt tilbage i 1800 tallet
