Tasty, but not quite great
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.
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!!!!
Don't expect the angels to caress you while drinking El Dorado 5. But at it's price and age - who would do that? What you get is value for money, which will suit your Cuba Libres and most cocktails just fine.
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.
