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.

Nice rum with a spicy nose and a nice sweetness but not too much. Aldo quite good value for money. Give it a try.

This rum has me forever. First tried and fell in love straight away. Since then I have been hooked. Semi sweet but complex and sophisticated taste with an elaborate aftertastes brings out the most of this delicious and amazing rum. Best enjoyed with fire and good book or good company. Sipping at its best and finest

Rum abbastanza complesso, ideale per una fredda serata d'inverno

Like others have said it does have added sugar but imo that doesnt impacts that much the smooth and very flavorful taste. Everyone should try this rum at least once.

Never came across an El Dorado I didn't enjoy. A highly recommendable rum that is worth its place in a rum cabinet. Nice balance on the tongue...strong at first but is allowed to mellow in the glass you get pleasant hues of toffee, molases and vanilla.

It tastes a lot like whisky. For whisky drinkers this is a good stepping stone into the world of rum. Some points off due to added sugar.

My first rum, and also the one I allways tend to go back to. More or less a fixed part in my collection.

Great aroma, great complex taste. It could have been smoother, but otherwise wow.

Taste 7,6/10. Nice sweet with little wood, maybe some fruits , also finish with very little cognac taste & some burn. Overall enjoyable....

This is had a thicker consistency than I was expecting and was quite sweet. The flavor profile presented spice, vanilla, caramel, and molasses. Beyond the sweetness I think this would be an incredible rum. However, the more I drink it, the more I'm liking it.
