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.

Là on est sur du très très très bon rhum ! L'équilibre entre sucre, les épices, les fruits, etc. est parfait et lui confère une complexité parfaite avec de nouvelles notes à découvrir à chaque gorgée. Un de mes rhums favori dans cette gamme de prix.

Kærlighed ved første sip. Denne rom er så lækker. Jeg elsker at byde mine gæster denne masterblend. Hat genkøbt den 2 gange nu og jeg er stadig vild med den.

I was able to sample this rum at a local liquor store as buying a bottle (almost $400) was out of the question.

Extremely smooth, slightly sweet, with an interesting caramel flavor. A bit of a spicy feeling on the tongue, with almost no burn when swallowed.

Personally, I do not think the vast difference in price warrants purchasing it over the El Dorado 15 year or Zacapa.

Im not a fan of ED12, so I didn't have much expectations for this. But I was positively surprised! The nose is brilliant, lot of spices and licorice. The taste is a mixture of dryness thats topped with a soft sweetness, - makes a killer combo! This is actually far more dry than I would expect, but they make it work. I would give it 8,5 if I could.

I had this rum in Jamaica for the first time and was surprised on the nice flow it presented. A bit more flavor and bite than the 15 year olds.. A gentle smell, but heat and spice upon tasting... A slight smoky taste with Cinnamon and nutty overtones. I like this surprise and will get more as I will the 15 Year old also..

This is definitely in my top five rums. For rums based on value it's right up there, but I would give the edge to the 15 year old, as to me the 15 year old tastes very similar, but is priced less. If price isn't a concern then this one is right up there.

I can recommend this one, even I don't like it's been sweetened after distilling.

Een rum met een ontzettend lange rijpperiode van maar liefst 21 jaar lang! El Dorado 21 Year Old Special Reserve is één van de beste rum die wij hier hebben mogen proeven, een sensatie voor de smaakpapillen. Het is een rum die gemaakt is voor de echte kenners en liefhebbers en het beste genoten kan worden door er langzaam van te genieten, samen met enkele speciale vrienden.

De formidabele kleur en het uitzonderlijke karakter is het resultaat van de Meesterdistilleerder van El Dorado. Aan de hand van zijn speciale recept worden speciaal geselecteerde rum geblend, rum die minstens 21 jaar hebben gerijpt op eikenhout, afkomstig van de Coffey still (Enmore hout), de Versailles 'single wooden pot still' en de Albion Savalla still.

This is a an awesome rum smooth complex and one not to be mixed.

This is a heavy rum, the taste lingers in your mouth leaving you glad you tried this. If your a fan of the others 12 / 15 then this should be one you add to your collection as a treat to yourself to justify the price.
