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.
when you base rum quality with Bacardi as standard, it just shows that you would drink anything with three letters on the label. but if you base all other rums with this one, it will make you seem like a very well versed rum taster.
the quality of the liquid itself speaks for itself. great flavor and character. if you want a great sipping rum in your cabinet, this should belong at top tier selection. toss out those mediocre rums and make this your standard rum of choice stat!
Right now this is probably my favorite rum. I'm terrible at describing the flavors but this one has the perfect combination for me. Pour it over an ice cube or two and you have the perfect sipping rum.
Whenever someone wants to try a rum from my stash I offer this up and so far everyone has enjoyed it.
Voici un rhum, à base de mélasse, très suave et parfumé.
Premières impressions, au nez, c'est doux et sucré, sur le miel. En bouche, il est rond et riche. La finale se fait tout en douceur.
Je le conseille pour les amateurs de mélasse :)
Bought at the German/Danish bordershop for roughly 30 euros...complex and a very good sipper. Chose this before the 15 year old as many consider this to be a better rum regarding its price
The only reason why this rum did not get 10/10 for me is only because I have not tried the 15 year rum yet :) This is a great choice in rum. As someone mentioned about sugar, yes this rum does have a certain sweetness to it. However that is what I look for out of rums personally. This one is great for sipping either neat or on the rocks. And it also mixes very well with the simple juice or coke/rum setups or the more advanced cocktails. This rum is also good in cooking or as a slight topper in desserts. A shot of this on top of a triple fudge Brownie along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is amazing.
When you have a shot of this it will leave you craving for more. My favorite rum to date. And the price range for this is typically in the high $30s.
Très bon rhum à déguster sec. Je suis toutefois un peu déçu par rapport à mes attentes au vu des autres commentaires. Il ne se démarque pas autant que j'espérais de mes autres rhums.
Rapport qualité/prix moyen (47€).
One of my first rums. I enjoyed it very much! Now, when I tasted better rums, it is not as much prefered as before. But still, I have another botlle, and looking forward to drink it again.
Good and powerfull aroma and same in taste. A lot of scent like wood, vanila, dark fruits and dark chocolate. No oversweet but sweet. Quite smooth with average power. Very long afterburn. Good for start with rum.
in the same price range as Malibu, this is a sipper...seriously, cheapest sipping rum you can buy and it's great. Buy it you can't go wrong!
When compared to its fifteen and twenty-five year counterparts this rum is truly astounding. Very sweet, and with a richness usually reserved for more expensive drinks this has quickly become one of my personal favourites. That being said I would not recommend this be mixed with anything to avoid overloading the already robust character.
δεν είναι απο τα αγαπημένα μου αλλά το οτι είναι ένα γνήσιο ρούμι θα το πώ.έχει όλα τα στοιχεία που πρέπει να έχει(χρώμα αρωμα γεύση) απλά μου βγάζει λίγο παραπανω αλκόλ απο οτι ήθελα
I am a big fan of the Molasses / Caramel type flavoring in a Rum. Not too sweet, but the flavors are there. This Rum doesn't disappoint on those flavor notes! This one is definitely in my rotation.
