The blend of El Dorado 5-Year rum's is distilled in a both column and wooden stills before maturing for five years in bourbon oak casks.
El Dorado 5-year rum is produced by Demerara Distillers Ltd. of Guyana. Sharing its name with the Demerara River, Demerara Distillers first started production in 1670.
Tasty, but not quite great
Oproti starším El Dorado rumům je o něco víc ostřejší a sušší. Nicméně po pár doušcích mi zachutnal. Aroma vanilky a dubového sudu je velmi příjemné a nevtíravé. Dobře se pije jak samotný tak i s colou.
I thought I'd like this a lot more since I like the other El Dorado offerings. It's got a nice nose but I found the taste to be just okay.
Nose: I get tropical fruit and molasses
Taste: Caramel and fruit
After greatly enjoying the 15yr and 12yr I decided to rate this 5yr and boy am I glad I did! This bottle now has a place on my shelf for mixing as I really like the smooth buttery, toffee, caramel flavors which are NOT subtle!
This is my go-to #3 rum for Martin Cate's book - wonderful tiki cocktails come with this- and this in a daiquiri is heaven.
Had read that this was a good value rum and can't really disagree. Comes off smokey and you definitely get a taste of caramel which is nice but doesn't do enough to overcome the alcohol aftertaste. Definitely meant for mixing and nothing more.
I was expecting more from this rum, ED has a reputation for sweet (sugared) rums that while somewhat muted are otherwise nice to drink. Oddly this has very little sweetness and that makes it rougher and harsher in the finish. I think the 8 year is probably the better value / mixer rum. This rum is decent, cheap but ultimately a little dull.
