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.
i live in a place where restaurants rarely have great rum selections. I was surprised to find a 12 year old El Dorado. With so many positive reviews I looked forward to trying it. This one was a major disappointment to me. The taste was heavy on the Carmel. Sweet but not too sweet and a hint of vanallia But the overwhelming characteristic is the medicinal smell and taste. It smells and tastes like NyQuil - and that's being polite. After a couple it becomes more drinkable but I cannot recommend this rum. It says 12 year old run but it has the smoothness of 12 hour hootch.
Great tasting, complex sipping rum. If I can't afford a bottle of El Dorado 15, I'll go for an ED12 any day. Slightly less sweet to me than Diplomatico Reserva which I also like.
In one hand you have Appleton 12, in the other you have El Dorado 12. Wonderful value for money and pretty tasty stuff. Another sipper that goes well with a cigar. You also have Mount Gay Extra Old and Cruzan Single Barrel in this particular bracket.
I don't know why I don't really like this one I've read lots of good reviews and when I finally try this one something was missing I don't know why... I must try another time and for sure I will
Rum sympa mais fort sucré.
On sent bien le côté boisé et gourmand des rhum type enmore ou port mourant il me semble... Dommage que l'ajout de sucre est trop important à mon goût...
Pomerne sladsi rum za prijatelnu sumu. Vonou mi trochu pripominal Mount Gay Extra old. Velmi dobre sa pije sam bez miesania ....
First sip, good alchool presence, with some orange notes. After a few seconds sure you'll notice a sweet aftertaste, like vanilla and caramel. For my taste is too sweet, but I absolutely recommend this one into your cabinet. A must have! Value for money unbeatable, very nice bottle!
Pris og smag hænger ikke sammen her. Den har en fantastisk smag af vanilje og en dejlig efter smag af lakrids. Det er bare en god ROM til prisen.
One of the great ones, El Dorado's reputation preceded itself, and convinced me at my first taste. This might be the classiest mixing rum there is, which can also be enjoyed neat. This will make any drink way better. And for the rum&coke drinkers, please at least consider coke made from sugar cane instead of corn syrup.
This rum is for everyone. You can sense some of Diplomatico sweetness out of it, but it's not as attacking. On the palette it's overally sweet rum with hints of complexity. Nose is very pleasant. Not my favourite, but sits between the best I've tasted so far.
Quite good, but do prefer the 15 year old. This is quite sweet, and taste a bit like the sugar is added.......
The first bottle of El Dorado , I only drank it with mix. I am slowly learning to drink rum "on the rocks" and am really enjoying the true flavours of this particular rum! I bought a proper sipping glass and really enjoyed taking my time and enjoying the superb smells as well as taste.
Sweet but light spicy fragrance. A delight for the nose.
If sipped it goes from sugar to vanilla then over to a great afterburn of wood.
A delight for the mouth.
As a whole El Dorado rums are some of my favourite; along with Appletons and Flor De Cana products.
The 12 year old is a tasty rum and at only 35 bucks is a great value.
Most of the El Dorado products I prefer neat but this one I prefer one ice cube to curb the overly sweet taste.
Great smell, smooth finish
