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.
Now this is some good stuff
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.
Ok the 12 year is great value, the 15 is my standard to judge all other rums, the 21 was equally good. More complex, but not as sweet in my opinion. I bought the 25 year for a special occasion and given el dorados record you know it will be a treat! You cannot go wrong with ED!!!
Sono rimasto sorpreso da ciò che questo rum può offrire. All'olfatto è mielato/fruttato, al palato al primo impatto può sembrare un po' troppo legnoso con una marcata nota affumucata ma si fa tubito strada un finale davvero delizioso di sentori di caffè e cioccolato che risulta molto persistente. Un rum davvero valido, senza dubbio da provare almeno una volta. Io sono alla seconda bottiglia e chissà che non arriveri la terza!
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.
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!
