A top 5 rum for me. Fantastic. If price was no option, this would be my everyday drinker.

Smooth, deep with a lasting honey aftertaste. Best served neat

I am a huge fan of the 12...I have also enjoyed a bottle of single barrel, which is excellent. The 21 is definitely more oaky, with a huge flavor character of caramel, spices, plum, fruit, and vanilla. Definitely better neat. It’s not as sweet as the 12, which I actually like as a change of pace, still a smokey Demerara but definitely closer to a nice scotch.

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.

My immediate thought after first tasting was like a mild whiskey. Flavors are nice after the initial mild kick but it's not for me at this price point.

El Dorado, 12r niečo super, 15r fantastický, človek by čakal stúpajúcu tendenciu ale dostane trošku iný smer. Výborný rum, viac sladkosti a sud na úrovni koňaku. Strata svojej korenistej línie na úkor veku. Ale inak fantastické pitie ak nečakáte postupnosť 12-15-21.

I have tasted $30 and $40 rums that are way more complex and better tasting than this. Is good but not great, for that price I was expecting a more viscous spirit with a longer finish and better flavor. Not worth then money, if you like El Dorado rums stick to the 15 years, its a lot better in my opinion.

Drier - and tastier - than the 15yo which swims in sweet. Not bad. One can find Demerara flavours in this one, spices and all.

Sweet flavourful rum

I will drink this bottle very slowly and selectively

Similar notes to the 12 year but not as sweet some nice caramel and vanilla notes

Excellent in it’s pure one-note brown sugar flavor and balance of sweet and bitter, with only a hint of wood that doesn’t overpower. Rum purists will love this one!
Appearance: Medium Amber
Aroma: Brown sugar, very slight wood rosin
Taste: Slightly sweet, slightly bitter
Flavor: Brown sugar, only a hint of wood
Texture: Light body, very smooth once you get past the sting of alcohol
Finish: Long, brown sugar, and then mild molasses at the end
