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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
