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.
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.
Good price and deep smooth rum. Definitely a re-buy.
My favourite sipper. I'm out right now and I'm missing not having a bottle.
I tried the 5, 8, 12, 15 & 23 at the UK rumfest the 12 was the most enjoyable ..... But that was a lot of rum in one hit and without drinking a whole bottle of the 15 and not being able to afford the 23 it's hard to be sure...
El Dorado 12-Year Rum er en rigtig god rom, ikke særlig kompleks og pengene værd.
Really rich, caramel, hazelnut kind a like taste, color really lovely amber, prize was reasonable. This goes great with not so special evenings, with good company and some nice blunts.
On dit souvent qu'il est très compliqué de faire simple, c'est ce que fait ce rhum du Demerara qui est pour moi un standard. Avec un nez très classique (boisé, fruits murs, tabac, caramel...) il est très facile d'abord pour une découverte du monde des rhums (et bien plus riche qu'un diplomatico). En bouche on retrouve les mêmes éléments avec un côté très gras et donc sucré, ce qui constitue son point fort et son point faible à la fois, selon les goûts.
Il est distillé dans les alambics Enmore, Diamond et Port Mourant, joli pédigrée vous en conviendrez !
Le rapport qualité/prix est excellent
Had the 12 year old El Dorado at the Saint House and rum Bar in Tucson Az 2 weeks ago ! Was blown away by this 12 year old Rum ! It's great in a Daiquiri , trust me ?
Den gør absolut ingen fortræd. Den er sød og blød. Rund og rar. Her får man lidt mere at lege med end fx RZ23. Den er dog stadig forholdsvis simpel og man er tilbøjelig til at ville mere. Den er dog altid god at falde tilbage på og så er det utroligt at den er så billig! Jeg foretrækker 15y!
Lækker Rom med lidt bid i. God sødme, dejlig eftersmag.
Rich and full taste. Quite sweet and a good value for money.
Great taste. Lovely straight up.
Some reviews state that sugar was added or artificial sweeteners. Not quite sure how this rum has high alcohol to the nose with a strong bitter burnt taste. I specifically bought this in hopes of finding a "Sweet Rum". No go for me.
Not quite as tasty as the 15 year old but excellent rum for the price
It have burned smel and after taste...
Think the rest will be enjoyed with Cola...
This one is a lot sweeter and less punchy than the 15 yo and to me this one is best used in cocktails but can sip too, if only it didn`t have so much sugar added, 36g/L is a LOT.The 12 year old is aged in used whisky and bourbon barrels. In 2006 it was reformulated, It has tasting notes of fruit, tobacco and orange peel and has tropical fruits and spice nose.This rum contains predominantly copper coffey still rum from Diamond blended with the double wooden pot still at Port Mourant and marques from the Enmore wooden Coffey.Take out the sugar that was added and it would been a great rum.
A rum that I find so very enjoyable, especially considering the price. The nose is full and a little spicy with notes of rounded oak, leather, and sweet citrus.
The full demerara palette is smooth with molasse sweetness, tobaco, distinct citrus undertones, some barrel notes and perhaps a bit of liquorice. The aftertaste lingers with a cosy, lightly warming sensation.
Bedre rom fås ikke til pengene...
Der skal altid være sådan en i mit barskab.
Fantastic value for money , will always be a favorite !
Kan sagtens drikkes rent, men er dog også ganske forrygende til en rom og cola. Vinder af mange priser. El Dorado er når rom er bedst.
Blev bla. Drukket af den Engelske flåde helt tilbage i 1800 tallet
En udemærket rom
This was the first rum I got for the purpose of drinking it straight.
It is a rum that always will be in my collection.
I still enjoy et straight but also in drinks, coffee and hot chocolate.
It's a great all round rum and a great starter rum.
En af mine første rom. Den var knap så sød som forventet. Udmærket til prisen.
Not quite the 'zing'
of the 15 years old El Dorado, but this affordable venue is good on its own, as well as in cocktails of course...
