It's ok.

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

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

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

Well, not a fan of white rum, but this El Dorado rum i really enjoy, i think its smooth and very tasty, a good buy.

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 :)

Really interesting flavors that linger. Aftertaste was a little much but a great rum.

This one neat is ok. It has a little bit of an after taste, but it doesn’t linger long.

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

Alles was man durchaus mehr als 1x am Abend pur trinken/nippen kann, startet bei mir mit 'ner 5. Dazu gehört dieser Rum definitiv. Für einen weißen geschmacklich schon ganz gut (Tendenz zur 6) und tut auch einen guten Dienst beim Mixen. Zum Banks' 5 Islands ist zwar noch gut Platz (dafür ist der El Dorado IMHO dann doch noch etwas zu scharf und sprittig), aber im Allgemeinen vielfältiger [einsetzbar] als z.B. ein Havana Club 3 years.

The same as El Dorado Superior White. Not bad, but a bit stale and not as refreshing as what I like about a white rum. Too nutty.

No no to the blanco, leave it to age. This was unpleasant.

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.

This is a go to Demarara white rum for mixing quality cocktails. No need to drink this as a stand alone rum it is simply not its strength or purpose. Outstanding daiquiri rum especially if it is flanked by a splash of Lemon Hart 151 or Plantation OFTD for example. All in all for the money and the flavour, ElDo 3-year ranks as one of the most useful white rums out there.

Does the trick in a cocktail, but not as a sipping rum

Posted over 1 year ago by Card from United States with 62 ratings

Had with fruit punch and mostly coke. Not a sipper. Nothing remarkable about it. It didn’t make drink worse just didn’t enhance it. Smooth for most part and falls into price and range it’s looking to fall into. Cheaper side rum to mix

Good solid base for mojitos and mai tais. I'm not a fan of the white rums but it's a lot nicer than bacardi white. There's aromas of coconut and vanilla but there is harsh alcohol burn on the sip

Запах конфитюра, пластика, тропических специй, потом резкость спирта. Позже надоедает.
Во вкусе приятное округлое начало, после жжение и в меру горечь, ваниль, сладость.
Вызывает интерес и комфорт на весь вечер, хотя без сопровождения в чистом виде пить его трудно.
Не замечено тяжёлых эффектов от данной демерары.

A nicely aged white (actually filtered) rum. A pleasant fruitiness in nose and taste and a sugar coated aftertaste, but nothing too sweet. Comparable to the Plantation 3 stars (which remains the clear favourite).

Light and tasty. 3 years old, you can see the differences with not aged white rum. À must in your bar for mixing.

After letting my first ounce breathe in a snifter for about 10 minutes or so, that initial burn on the aroma and going down the pipe is gone. What you have after that is very faint hints of coconut, chocolate, and vanilla, but not enough to rival those from Vizcaya Cristal. So there was no need to do side by side taste testing against my top three white rums all rated as a 7. I also rate this a tad better than Cruzan Light, but at another $7 over Cruzan and having to drive another 25 miles one way to replace this entry level El Dorado, I seriously doubt that I would buy it again. It is still much more readily available and cheaper than Vizcaya Cristal, which is it's closest comparison.

Drinkable white rum, but nothing to write home about.

Posted over 2 years ago by Sam from Netherlands with 14 ratings

Nice one where a light demerara rum is requested - 5.5/10

Posted over 2 years ago by Jm from France with 33 ratings

Une belle douceur, un nez agréable. Idéal en mojitos par exemple 😋
