This rum is one of my favorites for under $20. It has a floral spiced flavor that is slightly sweet. Just right for sipping on ice on those hot summer nights in south Florida.

It's a shame you can't really buy this outside Guyana, as it's a very yummy rum.

This one will be a little dry for those who love rums such as Zaya, Zacapa and Diplomatico. Nicely robust Demeraran and one of the best buys in the $15 price range.

This one has a different blend of rums from the 8 and 12 yr and is closer to the 15 in terms of flavor profile, with substantially less added sugar (12 grams/ltr vs 30 for the 15 yr). Don't be fooled into thinking the aging is responsible for the smoothness of the 15 yr, who knows what percentage of the rum is actually 15 years old? (Only the blender).

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

This rum has a beautiful reddish tinge to it's amber colour, and with little/no alcohol smell it's very inviting. Even when mixed with cola, you can still immediately taste a little smokiness which provides some richness to the drink. This aged rum gives some nice depth to an easy-drinking smooth rum and cola. One of my favourites.

El Dorado's opening price point. Smooth Amber and probably the best bang for your buck. One of the nicest economy rums. Very similar to the 8-year old version.

I really like the bottle design and the color of the rum, nice display bottle in the bar. Perfect for guess who are use to rum and coke and want something else than a captain coke.

Too sweet for sipping, but is a good affordable mixer

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.
