Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I am not that well-rounded, when it comes to white rums, but I do know, that I like a white rum, that can give some character to a drink or to the evening sip, this is not something, that can be said about this one.
Nose: Sugar, Coconut and some faint citrus.
Taste: Some faint taste of coconut, sugar, citrus and vanilla.
Overall: To be honest, this is very watery. There is not much happening in this rum, so it won´t harm anyone, but it will also be hard to excite anyone with this one.
It has all the characteristics of a great white rum, yet this doesn't do it in the same way as the dark (8 year, is champion), it's cheap so that makes up for the lack of smoothness, still it mixes well...
Color : Clear
Flavour : Banana, vanilla and citrussy notes
Palate : Soft, smooth, clean
Ideal for a Julep or a Daiquiri
A good mixer from El Dorado. I couldn't find it very easy in PA, NJ, or DE, but did find it in NYC.
Love this on its own on ice, but if you like to mix it can be difficult as it has too much character for most conventional rum cocktails. Mixing with coconut water is best, but I usually have it with a squeeze of lime and ice.
Usually the best you can hope for from a white rum is for it to be smooth and not taste like gasoline. There are a few that manage to have some flavor too, such as Matusalem Platino and this one.
