Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Un rhum très cher mais il est vraiment complexe et mérite sa dégustation. Un goût puissant et corsé avec des notes de miel, de fruit de chêne et sucre brun.
A very nice aged rum, with the added proff making for a very lively taste. Still, it is somewhat sweet for my taste, unlike its younger cousin, the El Dorado 15 year old, which has a much more delicate balance between sweetness and oak.
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.
I have yet to be wowed by an Eldorado rum. One priced at £75 you might think would achieve that but not even close.
Maybe not a "wow" drink but certainly a pleasant tipple.
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!!!
Denne rom hører til en af mine favoritter. Det var faktisk også den der fik sat gang i min interesse for rom. Den er fløjlsblød med en god og ikke for sød smag der varer længe.
One of my favourite of the el dorado line; I actually prefer it slightly over the 25.
If we could give half marks I would give this an 8 1/2; mostly because the oak sticks around a little longer then I would like
So so smooth. Pure joy sipping with a close friend who appreciates not just fine rum but truly exceptional rum. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions....on just about any subject..but anyone that gives this rum a score of less than 8 doesn't know rum. In this price range this rum may have some equals but none better.
this is my go to choice in my local cocktail bar, Mokoko.
If I'm feeling indulgent, I'll even use it in a daiquiri where the complexity still comes through.
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.
Many think the El Dorado 21 is the best - or at least one of the best. My tastes are a little different, and I prefer the 8 and 12 better than the 15 and 21. Maybe it's aged TOO much? Can that be it? Heavier and more complex - yes. So if that's what you like, plop down the $80+ for it. If not, buy 4-5 bottles of the 8 year.
This one was a disappointment.. The taste of oak trashed this one for me.. Strong taste of the rum but i´ll stick with the 15 years in my cabinet.
wow, always good to learn a new country..... Had to get on my maps to figure out where this place was as I had never heard of it. On the nose, citrus peel, dried fruits, vanilla, brown sugar and toffee. In the mouth... Oak, smoky, cinnamon, vanilla, coffee and brown sugar....amazing complexity and balance!
Sugar: 34 gpl. At first this has a sweet wood or chemical type of smell then it gives way to a nice tobacco and smokey wood flavor. The initial bite gives settles down to a nice warm finish. This rum continues to taste better each time I sample it.
It is sweet and is somewhat similar to Diplomatico Exclusiva only this rum has a bit more oak to it. It is the best of the El Dorado line so far. It's worth trying, but at $110 per bottle my thoughts were that the taste does not justify the cost.
