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.

Found this to be one of the sweetest I've ever had. I've had to remind myself that it's a rum and not a liqueur. That being said, I really enjoyed it.

It's thick and extremely smooth. I'd considered pouring this on waffles in the morning if I didn't have a day job. Nearly no spice. A lot of rich sugars with a beach wood pallet. I'll be buying this again, or trying the 12 or 15yr.

A more refined, mellow and complex version of the 12 and 15 combined sans the smokiness from the 15. Mixed fruits and spicy oak, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a long fruity finish. Unfortunately, as with the 12 and 15 is has sugar added, and lots of it.... I hope DDL changes that and stop adding sweetener to their rums! not counting in the special cask varieties here because they are pure rums and the best DDL have made in the El Dorado range in my opinion.

In der Nase kommen Aromen von Holz, Rauch, Kaffee, Schokolade und etwas Honig. Im Geschmack kommt noch "Erde" dazu. Der Geschmack ist süß und lang anhaltend. Meiner Meinung kann man hier nicht viel falsch machen, ein Rum der viele ansprechen dürfte.

Her får man en kompleks rom, som udfordrer i forhold til 12'eren og 15'eren. Stadigvæk en lækker rom, som fylder godt.
Overvejende et genkøb.

A beautiful bright burnt orange, rust colored liquid with legs that slowly return to the pool below. Molasses, toffee, tobacco aromas and a complex flavor as it flows down the sides of the tongue and a long soft burn that ends soon after entering the throat. A very enjoyable sipping rum but I prefer ones that are darker with a deeper richer flavor.

I get brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, and toffee. As the glass sits I can pick up orange, spice and chocolate. It smells massively complex. Sadly dulled by the ageing practices

Color : Amber with dark gold gleam.
Flavour : Dry wood and spicy notes, well balanced with a light leather and nuts aroma.
Palate : Dry with excelent long lasting finish, the nuts and the wood remain long after ingestion.
