For what this rum costs (2 to 4x more than others), you are better suited to buy mire bottles if another type. El Dorado 12 is the best that they make, and they quickly go down hill with age, which is perplexing. If you prefer harsh, this is for you.

Considerably drier than I was expecting but extremely drinkable. While perhaps still partial to the 15-year, this presents a nice, complex flavor with an added woody note that is largely absent in the 12 or 15 year bottles. Overall, very happy to have it in my bar but also not sure I’d buy another with some of the other great options out there for similar/less money.

This rum is very smooth and equally tasty, it has hints of just about everything in it. (Coffee, Caramel, Oak, Citris, Tobacco, Spices, Honey etc.) One of the better rums.

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

Beautiful medium brown color. Smokey caramel (tobacco?) on the nose. Is this a signal of 21 years in charred oak? In the mouth, chocolate and a stronger presence of tobacco. The finish is long, with hints of banana and vanilla. All in all, this is a very complex rum, and by far the oldest I have yet tasted. The presence of smoke is new to my young rum-tasting experience.

Yep well made rum, would drink it all day long, just confused as to why the 15yo version tastes better. This is much smoother but I feel it loses it’s body and taste compared to the 15yo.

I'm a 15yr old fan but this one tops it. Its double the price and I think it gives double the bang. It's not packed with sugar as the 15yr old and the wood flavor adds a nice touch so it is a more mature rum. Totally enjoyable!

Very smooth with hints of flavor. sharp on the tongue at first then smooths out to a nice sipper.

Vanilla aroma with caramel and molasses. Strong but smooth.

Miles apart from it's younger 15 year old sibling. A completely different creature I would say. The 21 is dryer, less sweet. Richer in woody caramel and molasses flavours with a subtle touch of vanilla and sweetness that is no way overstated. If anything it can be a bit bitter, but that can be preferential if you loath overly overly sweetened rums. Savour this one. It's worth it.
