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.
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.
This has such a different flavor profile than anything else in my collection. Almost tastes a little musky, a hint olivey. Must be those heritage stills they use... It's a great one to round out your bar with something a little different, and very interesting.
Not one to buy in a miniature bottle, you must have at least three measures to fully experience the depth with this one, smooth all the way to the stomach, pleasing on the tongue...maybe a touch expensive (the 8 year is more pleasant on the pocket)..
Color : Amber with dark gold gleam.
Flavour : Dry wood and spicy notes, well balanced with a light leather and nuts aroma.
Palate : Dry with excelent long lasting finish, the nuts and the wood remain long after ingestion.
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 !
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 an awesome rum smooth complex and one not to be mixed.
This is a heavy rum, the taste lingers in your mouth leaving you glad you tried this. If your a fan of the others 12 / 15 then this should be one you add to your collection as a treat to yourself to justify the price.
Your review – you could include things like color, aroma, body, taste, finish, spice, smoothness… really anything you want! You can also share an optional picture of the drink (or better still - you enjoying it!) by attaching a photo below.
Finally added this bottle to my collection, have been keeping the 15 year around as a constant staple on my shelf. The El Dorado line is one of my favorites and now I just need a special occasion to open this addition. Like maybe a Monday.
Un excellent rhum a prendre après un bon repas..... just wow
Guf for ganen
This is a nice Dark deep-seated rum. It has a very Smooth taste and its age shows. This is a very decent alternative to a fine aged Cuban rum.
A more refined, mellow and complex version of the 12 and 15 combined to me sans the smokiness from the 15.Mixed fruits and spicy oak, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a dry long fruity finish. An exquisite rum!
Sicuramente un rum di prestigio, costoso sicuramente, ma sono 21 anni di invecchiamento autentici, e la cosa si sente eccome
La prima volta che ho provato questo fantastico Demerara sono rimasto sbalordito dal suo gusto suadente: morbido, dolce con grazia, complesso negli aromi che sprigiona.
Finale moooolto lungo.
Was/am an avid whisky drinker. Stumbled into rum at a friends house. He was out of whisky, so I asked for a rum and coke. He was out of coke,so he just handed me a glass of rum. It was Flor de Cana, and it opened my eyes. I finished a bottle of El Dorado 12 and decided to step it up a notch... Although pricey, what a great drink.
Spicy oak, with hints of toffee and vanilla. Heat in the mouth, with little to no burn in the throat. Fantastic!
I actually prefer the 15yo, but this is a tremendous rum in it's own right. Complex and enduring, great for sipping on special occasions. Not the value the 15 is at over twice the price, IMO.
Ever since I tasted my first Rum from Barbados I have been a fan of Demerara rums in general and El Dorado in particular.
The 21 year old has well balanced sweetness, almost no sharpness and still tastes like a real rum. Perfection!
In certain circles, rums aren't considered as refined and nuanced as other spirits, El Dorado 21 is my answer to them. It's moderately priced and reasonably available, but the craftsmanship, history, and sippablity of this rum puts it in league with the finest spirits on the market. It's a solid 9 out of 10, not just against other rums, but across the board. Toffy, vanilla, caramel, oak, black pepper, smoke, molasses, fig, notes of honey and sugar cane. I sip this rum after dinner, neat, no water, just straight rum and it's pretty damn close to perfect.
er godt nok et stykke tid siden, jeg har smagt denne rom, men jeg husker den som værende helt fantastisk.
I like the El Dorado range. The 21 year edit is a great rum...very smooth and elegant. but in my opinion a little bit too expensive.
Well-balanced rum with good taste that always seems to please me.
