This is a great rum! I like the El Dorado rums.
This one is one of the best rums you can get for the cost. So much sweetnes an flavour. Much fruit in the taste. Makes you want more. Better than the 15 year IMHO
Much like Don Julio to Tequila, El Dorado offers a high quality introduction to rum and is truly superb when you reach the top of their line. This 12 year is a perfect intro to their world that only gets better as you go further in.
I discovered good rums with El Dorado 15, which is (sometimes) hard to come by and expensive in Canada. I bought the 12 to try and I was pleasantly surprised. Sweet and fruity, with some vanilla and spice notes. I drink it straight and mixed in tiki cocktails.
Not bad, but not great either. A little hotter than i was expecting but mellowed out after a little time & an ice cube. Not quite as sugary as I was expecting based on other ratings, but certainly moreso than the 15.
One of my favorite! excellent nose with with deep brown color! Taste sweet in the mouth and long finish....for me without ice or water or anything else.
Very nice rum, with a natural looking light-brown/orangy colour. On the nose you get a lot of fruit and a sweetness also very subtle hints of chocolate. The taste is quite sweet, light and fruity. It doesn't have a very long finish. It's a good simple supper if you're not feeling like a complex rum and just want to sit and enjoy.
I was traveling in Canada and found that they had a lot more if a selection than at home so I picked up a bottle. I drank it mostly on the rocks and it was quite good. Slightly sweet with a nice finish. Since it was very hot I also made dark and stormy.
