Unlike his older brothers, El Dorado 5 Yr is not a sippable rum. But is a very good rum to enhance your favorite mixed rum drink. Definitely would use this over and again for that purpose. And will say a lot better than most of its mass-marketed competitors.

Don’t expect this to be a great sipping rum but El Dorado 5yr does deliver in countless cocktails!

Mám vyzkoušeno El Dorado 12 a nyní i 5, rozdíl pozná i kojenec, tento rum je velmi podobný Pampero Especial, vůně i chuť, dokonce když je mám vedle sebe ve sklenkách a hraju si jakože kterej je jakej, tak si je celkem pletu. Pětku už si nekoupim.

Not a terrible rum for the price. Also not an awful sipper.
Nose: butterscotch and alcohol
Taste: caramel, vanilla, and oak
Finish: slight alcohol burn
Not quite as good as it's older brothers, but good if you're in a bind.

Vanilla, burnt sugar, some oak. Strange sweet rum, like a sugared one. Does not feel good straight but hammered a bottle away mainly with coke and lime nonetheless. Ok as a free gift, would not buy again.

This is E Dorado 5 year old: my 2nd favourite rum (afterAngostura 1919) - smooth, warming, with a bit of a kick.

That dumb grab when you just want some rum.
Cheap. Cheerful. Well decent.

Weak body, strong alcohol taste, short aftertaste. Only for mixing. Save you money for 12y or 15y

K pivu je to výrazný parťák, není to na vychtnávání, ale pít se bez problémů dá. Hezkých 7. Kdo nechce riskovat, přeskočte 5tku, 8čku a jděte rovnou po 12y, která je v poměru ceny a požitku za 9b. Speciale 15y mně nepřesvědčil, asi by to chtělo mít víc času si ho vychutnat a poznat.

Found a bottle for around $20, heard a lot or rave about Demerara rums, I've had Hamilton 151 but wanted to try a normal proof. Upon first taste I was expecting something special but found the this to be very familiar. Reached in my cabinet pulled out Pusser's, nope Pusser's has a darker taste. Next I tried Doorly's XO, yeah that's the one. Very similar.
