Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
El Dorado 21 is produced near the equator in Guyana by Demerara distillery. The final product is a blend of rums, aged between 21 and 25 years and crafted using 100% locally sourced Demerara sugar. Traditional tools are used in the distilling processes including three unique wooden stills. The rums rest until maturity in 45 gallon oak casks.
Denne rom hører til en af mine favoritter. Det var faktisk også den der fik sat gang i min interesse for rom. Den er fløjlsblød med en god og ikke for sød smag der varer længe.
I love the El Dorado 21 and and keep it stocked!
This is one one of my favorite to enjoy my cigars with on the weekend. truly a fine rum, can't say enough great things about it.
So much flavour!! Long lingering finish, super smooth and very complex it's close to being my favourite rum!!
So so smooth. Pure joy sipping with a close friend who appreciates not just fine rum but truly exceptional rum. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions....on just about any subject..but anyone that gives this rum a score of less than 8 doesn't know rum. In this price range this rum may have some equals but none better.
Smooth, fruits and honey. Really like this one, a lot better than the 12.
Nice taste, a bit oaky but still sweet.
A clear taste and a well balanced rum.
The best for the price.
I haven't tried all of the El Dorado variants (just two of the single barrels, 12 [much better than the 15] 15 [disappointing] & 25 [incredibly expensive]) and in my opinion this is by far the best and definitely one of the best rums I've ever tasted.
An almost "off" sour smell, maybe like slightly aged passion fruit.
An incredibly strong chocolate taste hits immediately, followed by tobacco and then raisins.
A pleasant burn, just enough for you to know it's there.
I've tasted this back to back with Panama 21 rum nation and millonario xo (with which I thought this was my equal favourite) but it's edged ahead of those two this time (which could be because I've been drinking mainly whisky recently and its taken time for my palate to readjust). Truly wonderful.
Un des meilleurs de ma collection.
One the best, must have.
Là on est sur du très très très bon rhum ! L'équilibre entre sucre, les épices, les fruits, etc. est parfait et lui confère une complexité parfaite avec de nouvelles notes à découvrir à chaque gorgée. Un de mes rhums favori dans cette gamme de prix.
this is my go to choice in my local cocktail bar, Mokoko.
If I'm feeling indulgent, I'll even use it in a daiquiri where the complexity still comes through.
wow. this is just perfect. i am still developing the words to really characterize a rum, but this is a 10 all day. perfect from nose, body, after taste, tail. i was really sad to finish my pour.
EDIT, had another chance at this rum. my 10 is confirmed. this is probably the best rum i have had and i really look forward to finding a bottle!!
Für mich der bester rum überhaupt.
Nicht zu suss und ein sehr komplexes aroma.
Leider ist der preis nicht geschenkt
Made from rums of between 21 and 25 years of age, matured in 45 gallon oak casks, within six degrees of the equator in Guyana.
(I suppose the rum is aged in Single Malt Wiskey Cask)
you immediately feel a strong taste of single malt wiskey that characterizes the flavor,
caramel, vanilla, chocolate, orange peel ...
Great Rum with, sweet, rich and very particular Aroma.
My friend Dave that is on this site recommended this amazing Rum. Im glad he did. I absolutely love it. So smooth with amazing flavors. honestly could not stop drinking it. I want to buy this rum every time I see it on the shelf. Price point $99 is generous for this perfect rum.
Not because of the price-tag, but this stuff is REALLY freakin' good, people! Near perfect rum. Another solid entry from El~Dorado. Richness competes with oakiness, providing a taste-profile that has a nicely balanced sweet & smoky quality - buttery toffee and brown-sugar flavors intermingle with oak to rightly satisfy any pure rum-drinker's discerning palate! If not, well, then, I don't know what to tell you. Drink what you like, but I'm sticking to this.
This stuff is the best I have had ever had the pleasure of tasting... Delicate flavours throughout the whole drink on the rocks... It's amazing Really good... If you have any money this should be a definate purchase... To mix it is a sin
Un bijoux, une explosion florale, huileux, crémeux en bouche un délice a coup sur! MIAMMIMAM
This is an amazing sipping rum. Complex flavours, not over-sweet and smooth finish. Darn near perfection!
Heavy, sweet, smooth... Rich and savory. Superb sipping rum.
Kærlighed ved første sip. Denne rom er så lækker. Jeg elsker at byde mine gæster denne masterblend. Hat genkøbt den 2 gange nu og jeg er stadig vild med den.
Let's just acknowledge it... This is the best there is. We know there's more exclusive and expensive bottles out there but this is perfection. With too many notes to list, the overall experience vs the price is unmatched. Whenever I drink a new aged rum, I can't help but compare it against El Dorado 21.
Complexity defined. Top shelf, with all others bowing down underneath.
This may not be the best rum available, but it gets a 10/10 from me. My son says it is too sweet. Not so say I ! If one likes the taste and nose of fresh warm molasses then you will not be disappointed. Adorable. My gold standard against which all other rums are compared.
Like fine scotch, every fine rum going into my mouth does so without hindrance from mixes, water or ice. Neat cant be beat.
A truly great rum. So many things in it's aromas. I like the "thickness " in it. It is smooth, yet warm, it is dark in color it tastes fruity to me. It is expensive but you have to get a bottle once.
I recently started with sipping rum to go with my cigar smoking. El Dorado 21 was recommended to me by a friend and it was a special order through the Pennsylvania Liquor Control website. I am a somewhat novice but it was so smooth and I thought it had a black cherry flavor. I was so impressed with this rum that I immediately ordered the only remaining bottle in PA.
