Mult laudatul El Dorado de 21 de ani nu e ceea ce te astepti sa fie. Sincer, sunt putin dezamagit de gustul unui rom de 21 de ani.

Made from rums of between 21 and 25 years of age, matured in 45 gallon oak casks, within six degrees of the equator in Guyana.
(I suppose the rum is aged in Single Malt Wiskey Cask)
Taste of:
you immediately feel a strong taste of single malt wiskey that characterizes the flavor,
caramel, vanilla, chocolate, orange peel ...
Great Rum with, sweet, rich and very particular Aroma.

wow. this is just perfect. i am still developing the words to really characterize a rum, but this is a 10 all day. perfect from nose, body, after taste, tail. i was really sad to finish my pour.

EDIT, had another chance at this rum. my 10 is confirmed. this is probably the best rum i have had and i really look forward to finding a bottle!!

Alkohol: 43 %
Původ: Guyana
Aroma: Zajímavá vůně. Mix rumových pralinek, těžkého exotického dřeva, čokolády, rozinek a překvapivě i trochy ředidla. K tomu se přidává pryskyřičná větrovost. (87 b)
Chuť: Vůně a chuť si jsou velmi blízké. Čokoláda, dřevitost, větrovost a opět ten závan ředidla. (87 b)
Body: 87/100
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem již několikrát, mám doma lahev. Rum to určitě není špatný, ale když přihlédnu k jeho ceně a k tomu, že obě mladší verze, 12 i 15 let jsou nejen výrazně levnější, ale i mi chutnají víc, tak ve výsledku je to vlastně zklamání. Čekal jsem, že se posunu ještě dál, opak byl pravdou.

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.

Very similar to the 15 year old. Wonderful sipper, but too similar to the 15 year old to justify the increase in price.

This is a great sipping rum and it’s very smooth. So smooth that if you drink it on the rocks it has zero burn in the finish. Tastes like a delicious caramel treat. You’d be hard pressed to find a 21 year old that costs less than this one, so it’s actually a good value despite being around $90-$100 Canadian. I highly recommend this if you’re in the market for your first 20+ year old rum.

Var virkelig spændt på denne og havde store forventninger, og de blev indfriet. Den er det bedste fra 12 og års El Dorado. Virkelig dybde i smagen med mange smagsnuancer. El Dorado er virkelig en kvalitets rom. Den får ikke 10 pga. prisen, og jeg kommer nok til at vælge 15 års frem for 21, dels på grund adm prisen, og fordi forskellen ikke udpræget stor. Men absolut en topklasse rom

Juste un peu déçu par rapport au 15, cependant il m’apporte d’autres saveurs. Au vu du prix, je m’attendais à mieux.

Deep, amber color. Smooth, so smooth. This sipper is amazing. Soft feel. Light oak, fruity, leather. Light burn. The taste remains on the tongue. Buttery, delicious.
One of the best rums I've had. If you have the opportunity to try this, do not hesitate.

This was on my want list for a long time. Tastes wonderful but I might just prefer the 15 year. I got a bottle of this and every time I would drink it I would get really bad heartburn afterwards because it was so sweet and syrupy. I would definitely recommend though and will probably get another bottle at some point.
