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.
The best of the brand I've had. It's smooth and showcases the best of Guyana
This is actually a very good rum. Well balanced and so on, but it is not my kind of rum. I actually think the 15y is a better alternative from a pure taste perspective.
Good nose with lots of rum raisin. Flavor is a bit of a letdown compared to the nose. A good rum, but not awesome.
Borde varit bättre...!
Med tanke på pris..
Flaskan borde oxå spegla priset man tar..!
For a 100$ in Québec,CA you can get better than that for a lower price, it as a strong wood barrel after taste.
I was disappointed by this one. A smooth whiskey would have done the same trick for me. The dry taste of bourbon barrels caught me off guard. Not what I expected after the good 12 year old and wonderful 15 year old.
Harsh smokey rum, a bit like an single malt whiskey. Round, big bodied liquid for the advanced rumdrinkers with a big wallet. I don't want my rums to taste like whiskey. If I want whiskey I drink whiskey. Hope that the 12 yo is my cup of tea instead.
El Dorado 21 year is way too close to a good cognac than a flavorful aged dark rum, and it has a surprisingly strong after burn. Best memory is from the Demerara Distilleries between Georgetown and Cheddi Jagan Airport in Guyana when I visited their rum distillery and enjoyed their entire line up in its own surroundings.
This one was a disappointment.. The taste of oak trashed this one for me.. Strong taste of the rum but i´ll stick with the 15 years in my cabinet.
For what this rum costs (2 to 4x more than others), you are better suited to buy mire bottles if another type. El Dorado 12 is the best that they make, and they quickly go down hill with age, which is perplexing. If you prefer harsh, this is for you.
Ive only tasted the 15yr eldorado and i like that better. This one is sweeter tho, but it Got like a sour taste i dont like
I get brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, and toffee. As the glass sits I can pick up orange, spice and chocolate. It smells massively complex. Sadly dulled by the ageing practices
