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
with this year of ED its not something you sip that's for sure and also something if its there then maybe I will drink it as a mixed drink. BUT its a great rum for a summer rum punch!!!!
This may actually be my favourite El Dorado. I have enjoyed the 12 and the 8 year olds, and this one is lovely too. Toffee and caramel are the predominant flavours, with a very subtle rum flavour, and very smooth on the palette. Lovely stuff and great value for money.
I am not a huge fan of such taste - I would definitely recommend it to people who "like whisky, but don't like Rum" - but to them I usually recommend some of Plantation's . it is smooth this way. I'd say 6.5/10 (better with Cola).
Somehow this is way sweeter even than Zaya... almost too sweet, but perfect for mixing where Demerara rum is called for. The older El Dorados are lower in sugar and have more complex flavors coming through, but the price + versatility of this make it a good addition to a tiki bar, if not the best for sipping (unless you really like marshmallow sweetness in your rum).
A really strong smell of caramel that is delicious. Tried it neat. Stronger and more alcohol taste then the 3 year. A little bit of burn and heat with a long after-taste. Not a bad sipper, but nicer mixed.
It's harsh, I couldn't enjoy the taste.
Noticed some caramel and vanilla. ElD 15 is a much better rum.
I think it could be ok for cocktails.
Very strong alco aftertaste, that can't open the true horizons of demerara toffieness
Very good with cola, unusual and nice with ginger beer but common - this one is TOO expensive to mix it with sodas and try to imitate the joy
