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.

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

Taste 8/10. 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.

It cost $45 but worth maybe $20. Very harsh,lacks the smoothness of most real 12 year old rums.

Color is dark amber, taste of vanilla is subdued but comes to the fore with a cube of ice or two and a short wait.

A very gentle fruity nose to it. a lovely smooth rum to drink neat, Sweet and vanilla in the mouth and Nice and warm as it goes down. After that you can taste the prume very well for up to about 2 minutes after.

El dorado 12 years old is one of the best rums in my collection, i can say its a little bit better then diplomatico reserva exclusiva. its cheaper, aromatic a taste is gorgeous.

Bottle: i love that style, that pirate style of bottle with red stamp showing an information about age of rum. very nice.

aroma: smell like exotic fruit a little bit of honey aroma, little bit spice and oak aroma. very nic and aromatic. you can feel anything. perfect.

taste: honey, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, plum in caramel, and a bit of anise.

color: nice color of milk chocolate

summary: perfect rum for people who prefer non dry rums. i prefer sweet rum because for me is better to drink sweeter rums for their aromas. i want to try older one.

Great rum for its price. It's pretty affordable, sweet and not too strong on the alcohool. Great to sip all by itself.
