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.
when you base rum quality with Bacardi as standard, it just shows that you would drink anything with three letters on the label. but if you base all other rums with this one, it will make you seem like a very well versed rum taster.
the quality of the liquid itself speaks for itself. great flavor and character. if you want a great sipping rum in your cabinet, this should belong at top tier selection. toss out those mediocre rums and make this your standard rum of choice stat!
Of all their aged runs this is my favourite. Sweet, complex and delicious.
This one is really very good rum. Good flavour, little sweet and fruity afterwards. I always keep one bottle in reserve.
Good tasting Rum, wonderful flavours, pleasantly sweet, but spoilt for me a wee bit with a too strong alcohol burn. Like I said, lovely flavours, but just it lacks that X-factor to make it extra-special for me.
Super molassy. Wich I love. Sweet yet spicy. Not at all woody like some other rums. Very plesant but a good burn.
I am so glad that I found this dark and beautiful rum
Got a chance to taste this one a quite some time ago. But what I recall, it was a pleasant experience and the rum left a good impression.
Watch out! Maybe the sweetest rum I've ever tasted.
Even with large amounts of sugar, it is light and pleasant.
Notes of fruits and caramel.
A good option if bought at the right price.
Cena vzhledem ke kvalitě přijatelná. Lze říct, že není tak sladký.
Prijemný rum, chut jemna do sladka, koniec dosť ostrý.
One of the rums you keep on hand for a little treat. Sipped with a bit of ice, very nice. The 15 and 21 are better.
On a list as a fave. It pleases the doing a and the soul.
I'm no purist so as a sipping rum the added sugar is fine. Mixing it with cola or something like that I'd imagine would be too sweet since you're adding two sweet things together.. but I'm sure some would still enjoy it that way. I always have some in stock.
toto je rum, ktorý pri svojej cene predbehne aj ďaleko drahšie rumy svojou chuťou.
One of the few bottles that I always have to hand. A great example of the style at an affordable price £40
I really enjoyed this one, high rating for good taste and not much after bite. Like it, pricey but good.
Caramel and toffee, sugary vanilla and a bit of spice. Smooth but not the smoothest in the price range.
This one is a very well made. A very pleasant sipping rum for a fair price.
Imo better then the El Dorado 15. Way less sweet but sweet enough...
Nose first a little flat but opens up wonderfully after 5-10 minutes in a cup. Rich and complex with vanilla, honey and molasse. After 15+ minutes there are hints of exotic fruites: banana, papaya and a little oak.
Taste is wonderfull, very well ballanced: honey and oak, not bitter nor dry, less complex than the nose but very smooth. Nice oily texture...
The finish is quite long: some oak, little vanilla, much honey and molasse, a little dry in the end but not bitter at all. Very inviting for the next sipp. Very very little afterburn.
Would buy again for 39.00$, but the Abuelo 7 that I bought together with this bottle was 34.00$ and was almost as good: less complex but with a richer nose and a more mouth filling texture and a little less sweet than the El Dorado 12. So I will go with the Abuelo 7 for my next purchase...
Na El dorado 12 som sa velmi tesil. Pil som 8 rocny a chutil mi, nebol sladky, a bolo citit, ze ide o demerara rum, El dorado 12 ma na mna prilis vela cukru, stale sa da velmi dobre popijat, sladkost ale prebija ostatne chute. Za mna max 7
I like sweet but this was a bit narrow in the flavor palate. Mixes okay but a little heavy on the aftertaste. I read some great things about this but find it lacking overall and prefer other more balanced rums at his mid-$30's US range.
Per me il miglior 12 years provato, sapore un po' più light rispetto al 15 years ma comunque vale la spesa sicuramente. Dolce suadente molto equilibrato con un buon finale.
Absolut ingen äcklig rom men något saknas för att den ska nå upp till sitt 15-åriga syskon som är ruggigt god.
El Dorado 8 year is a completely defferent taste and aroma.
Both are sweet but this one is more creamy. 8 year is solid brown suger caramel taste.
I prefer 8 year.15 year is more tastefull.
Great run for mixing at average price. Honestly no more oakheart or captain Morgan for me ever!
