Great flavor, smooth, little bite. Definitely my favorite light rum I've had.

Smooth mixer, strong vanilla on mose and taste, no aftertaste to speak of.

jemně ovocná ve vůni i v chutí, náznak koření, nic výrazného, Chairman's White na dostařování u mne lepší volba

This rum is pretty decent for its price point. Obviously, it's far from a premium (which is why I am giving it a 7 for what it is at its own level rather than what it is compared to the really good stuff) but all things considered I think this white rum actually holds up pretty well when stacked against many of its competitiors around the same price. It's reasonably smooth and not nearly as nasty when you take a whiff as some of the other sugar water white rums are out there that smell like they could be combustable if near a naked flame.

It has a fair amount of vanilla (but not too much) and when you blend it into mojito's or other classic white rum beverages it blends really well.

It also doesn't give you nearly as much of a nasty hangover as lesser white rums such as Malibu or Bacardi

Usually priced around 40 AUD I'd say if your blending cocktails for a party and you want something above bacardi this is a good candidate. Bottle looks nice and everyone knows El Dorado make quite a respectable range of rums.

Definitely worth a buy at your local bottle store the next time you're doing cocktails.

This rum lacks the freshness you would expect from a white rum and replaces it with an odd vanilla-cream aroma.

N- Grassy, creamy smoke vanilla with subtle wood dust, also pine and mint. For fairness this is not crafted for nosing anyway, but it smells right with clean and purity. (85/19)

P- Medium full with coal, balanced of light sweetness with spicy notes. Still pleasant to sip as sometimes white rum tend to get a wee 'industrial' but not with this one. Restrained note of cedar, light tobacco, orange peel and coconut. (86/20)

F- Medium, pine, mellow spirit with fine body, relaxing, tropical and breezy. Quite enjoyable even at neat. (86/20)

B/B- 86/20

Weighted Rate- 79pt

Nice body for a young rum. For $14 it has a lot of bang for the buck.

edited to add sugar test results- 2g

Remarkably clear for the flavour. Smooth with the alcohol tang at the end. Drunk straight

I use it for cocktails and mixers. Definitely one of the better ones.

Hey what can you say about a white rum ?
This offering from El dorado was and is an excellent example of what white rum can be a very very good mixer that offers a smooth delivery and a great white rum mixer drink 👍
