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)

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.
Nice sweet brown sugar smell, pretty round but without any specific excitement.
Body is thin and watery with some spicy burn in throat. Can’t pick out any distinctive flavours with this rum. As as result of ageing and filtering all edges to this rum are gone but at the same time no vanilla or sugar have been added I think. Feels pretty honest and for some reason 3-yr works really well in cuba libres.
Definitely better than Matusalem Platino or Havana Club Silver/3-yr. real rating is 5.8. Probably won’t be getting another bottle but have no hesitations for having bouhht one either :) Price was 19.99/08/2020
The nose is consistent with other Demerara rums from El Dorada, but less rich and more bite. Flavor is simple without much sweetness or character. Much better than my house Bacardi Blanca for upgrading cocktails.
I gave it 6/10 considering this forum is about all rums but if talking about white rums I could give it even 7 or 8! it is a great mixer but you can sip it easily, bit sweet, quite smooth with a point in direction to good rums in its family, comparing e. g. to white bacardi it is like heaven and hell :)
