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
Very nice to drink. Nuttiness and Carmel are the major overtones. Easy to drink. Slight alcohol burn but very very light and extremely quickly residing. Easy and mellow rum with a very light almost no kick. I like!
There is so much going on with this rum the aromas are reminiscent of Christmas pudding, candied fruits, caramel, even a touch of banana. This rum is a wonderful expression of well aged demerara rum. It is a blend of rums aged between 21 and 25 years and is masterfully done!
I must honestly say I thought I was going to love this rum...I don’t. It has a nice bouquet. The taste is good but not my favorite. It is smoky and not too sweet and has some major oak. It almost taste like scotch.
Compared to rums in the same price range, I did not enjoy the 21. I have not yet tried other El Dorado rums
To my palate, it lacks the smoothness and taste one would expect in this price range. I will stick to the Ron abuelo centenario and zacapa xo for now.
I really love the taste of ED's. This is a fine sipping rhum. Clear warm day. Good meal on the grill at the backyard, this and fine sigar! Lovely!
One of the smoothest aged rums I've tried. Up there with the diplomatico vtg 2000. Long lasting finish in the mouth. Usually like an ice cube with my rum but I liked this rum better without.
Exquisite rum El Dorado 21 years, has a nice presentation, simple but colorful. When served in a glass you can appreciate aromas such as vanilla, sugar, wood, and fruits; the flavor is very balanced, a soft rum without alcoholic punch, lightly smoked and you can feel flavors like vanilla, caramel, fruit. Undoubtedly is a delicious rum.
Exquisito ron El Dorado 21 años, tiene una agradable presentación, simple pero vistosa. Al servirlo en copa se puede apreciar aromas como vainilla, azúcar, madera, y frutas; el sabor es muy equilibrado, un ron suave sin golpe alcohólico, ligeramente ahumado pudiendo sentirse sabores como la vainilla, caramelo, frutas. Sin dudas es un ron riquísimo.
