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.
Very good rum. One of my finest rum in my bar. But expensive for what it brings... But the quality is There. Still have à lot of added sugar though.
I had the good fortune of a taste of this at a friend’s house. It is one of the best rums I’ve ever had. There are hints of all kinds of flavours: vanilla, plum, cinnamon. It has no burn and a great aftertaste. This is definitely a sipping rum that screams Caribbean!
Up until now is the best rum i'very ever drink. It puts smiles on your face after a hard day of work :D
Un bijoux, une explosion florale, huileux, crémeux en bouche un délice a coup sur! MIAMMIMAM
So much flavour!! Long lingering finish, super smooth and very complex it's close to being my favourite rum!!
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.
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.
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.
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 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
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.
Un des meilleurs de ma collection.
One the best, must have.
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!!
I truly enjoy drinking this rum. It's not my favorite but is usually easier for me to find locally. Nice and smooth and I love the smokey finish
Smooth touch with a minor dry finish that stays a while..
Truely loved the first sniff I took at it, So many aroma's running free when you swirl it just once after that first sniff.
When you poor that first sip on your tongue the rum really comes together.
Oak, tabbacco, vanilla , just a couple of flavors that come to mind.
Great rum , but the price is accordingly high.
This is a Family Selection Rum, you need to have it but, drink it in special moments or with the family. Like all others El Dorado is perfectionon the bottle, I love it From the first sip , very harmonious, with character, sweet and the usual wood flavor. Absolute pleasure from the first contact with the tongue up to the grandiose finish !
Den Rum hat mir meine Frau vor zwei Jahren geschenkt - dafür liebe ich sie noch mehr! Schon beim ersten Schluck war es um mich geschehen und n den 21er El Dorado verliebt. Ein sehr harmonischer Rum, ganz ohne aggresive Alkoholtendenzen. Geschmack nach Kokos, Vanille und Nuss, mit leichtem Zimteinschlag. Ein absoluter Genuss vom ersten Kontakt mit der Zunge bis hin zum grandiosen Abgang!

Was concerned the rum would be come to oaky at 21 as the 15 was pushing it.
It doesn't it's excellent. Would give it a ten if it was little cheaper......
Full review to follow soon on
It is an excellant choice! Yeah, the price is good but the product too... I tasted it from a friend and I can't wait to have my own one! You can't be disappointed, impossible !
A good sample of Dry Rum with lot of taste. Too many times Dry=less flavour, but not with El Dorado 21. This is one nicely balanced Rum with full scale of flavours from oak to spiciness.
Sicuramente un rum di prestigio, costoso sicuramente, ma sono 21 anni di invecchiamento autentici, e la cosa si sente eccome
