Just brilliant. This is the rum that officially got me deep into the rabbit hole of delicious rum. Admittedly I've had better in the years since, but this isn't a rating based on nostalgia as it's a fantastic rum in its own right (a bit too sweet for some though). However the price point at just over $30 for me easily cinches its deserved rating.

Mr first "proper" rum, so fond of it for that reason. Very smooth, no lasting burn, aroma of Xmas pud, great sipper and on the rocks. Relegated to 2nd favourite now I've discovered Plantation XO.

Nice go to rum that is readily available at a good price point, replaced Capt Morgan private stock in my cabinate as my casual rum.
Nice Carmel flavours and mixes well with Coke.

Wow, what an aroma. This is a sweet rum and too much sugar added for me but it didn’t stop me enjoying the bottle but I won’t be buying again. Why the 8/10 because if you like sweet rum then you will love this.

This rum is very excellent in the glass and the nose is very smooth.
The price makes this one hard

this was a good one, but you can find better ones for the price.

It's a rough start and finish. Even in coke it's not great.

The El Dorado 12-year is an excellent rum and it is one of the best in its price range. It has a very aromatic and powerful nose; sweet and citrusy. You taste caramel and oak in a balance that is nearly perfect. The powerful aftertaste lasts long in your mouth. It's a perfect sipper!

It may not be what I look for in a rum, but I can appreciate that it's a very flavourful rum with a depth that many will appreciate.

It’s a decent rum but at the price point it’s a bit more than I could justify. If it were ten dollars less I’d say it’d be good but i don’t understand the hype on this one. It’s a bit sweet followed by a harsh alcohol burn, not terrible but for a more premium rum I expected more. However with that said I like my rum sweet, so if you like less sweet and bitier rum this is for you, but if you want a sweet rum that is smoother go get Diplomático.
