Just started a new job and my wife bought me this as a gift. The El Dorado 12 is my go to rum. This is so much more complex a rum. This is not as sweet as the 12 but is just as thick in the mouth. Definitely let it sit in your glass before sipping let it breath a little . You will not be disappointed.

Smoother and softer than the 15. Fun to taste, as flavors seem to reveal themselves with every sip.

Bon rhum de dégustation, j'ai goûté à mieux pour moins chers.

I expected this to be a mature version of the 12 or 15 but strangely it had a completely different profile. It had more of a fruit taste with hints of earthiness. It’s profile was closer to rye than rum.

I just cracked it open so I hope to post a better 2nd review.

The first time I tried this was with a good friend and we were puzzled by a specific element in the aroma and palate in this rum. After a few tries, we determined that it was the tobacco. El Dorado 21 had a very distinct tobacco element that I never experienced on other runs like Zacapa XO, or Appleton Estate 21. Overall, this is a great rum. Superb aroma, dark chocolate and tobacco.

Thick, molassesy sweet rum. Good flavors, notes of wood and vanilla. This one is a dessert rum. Might be a bit much out in the hot sun

Very good sipping rum, but not as good as I would have expected based on the price. After reading the other reviews I am interested in trying the 15 year next time.

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!

This is definitely a dosage bottle but I'd say 15 > 21 > 12. I sip it or occasionally use in a cocktail

Again different to the 15 years old, but very good
