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.
Recommendable to most
Suger dominates the profile. Its similar to Diplomatico Exclusiva with maybe a slightly better over flavor. There is some maple syrup, vanilla, oak, and pepper on the finish with everything playing second fiddle to the sweetness.
Tried this one on its own a couple of times and I was not so pleased with it but then I had some chocolate while sipping it and then it was really nice.
Tried neat in glencairn-
Mouthfeel- very thick and syrupy
Palate- caramel balanced with spices
Finish- smooth with minimal ethanol burn
I am quite aware of what Appleton estate 12 year old tastes like ..as I have been a HUGE fan of this particular flavour...recently ,the LCBO had the El Dorado 12 year old on sale ....so , I take a gamble ....WOW !!!......never in my wildest dreams did I think that any rum could topple the Appleton ..well ,well...
so , I did a taste test ...the differevpnces between the two are remarkable...the best one I found was the taste of the cane sugar, Appleton uses Jamaican, whilst ElDorado uses Guyanese....
I wholly endorse El Dorado 12 year old ...money ..WELL spent !
I just opened the bottle and like it very much! Nice colour. Fruity nose. For me the sweetness is one. Still have to open the ed15 so my expectation for that wan is now even bigger.
Another winner from Guyana. From the first sip you realise this is a premium sipper.
Full of fruit flavours, a deceptively mild burn, lingering taste that oozes fruit and spice.
At £33 a bottle it's got to be one of the best bargains out there, I've certainly paid a lot more for rums that don't really compare.
Never mixed it , maybe 1 small ice cube is all I need
Reasonably priced for a decent quality rum. I'll have to try out more from El Dorado, but this is definitely a good sipping rum.

"It’s very sweet and quite light. It’s very easy drinking. As a sipping rum it as easy to drink."
