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
This RVM should be the cheap version of the family, but it is a very pleasant surprise! I didn't think a distillate so refined. There is a spicy smell and a mineral taste to try, for not to mention of the good price. Strongly suggested!
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).
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.
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).
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.
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.
Nose: overripe melon, wax, even sharp, not outstanding.
Palate: bitter, sweet, harsh. This rudeness seems appropriate. Masculinity. There is a feeling that this should be the true rum.
The digestion handles perfectly, and the head feels hot and fast intoxication. Further the taste seems watery. Does not produce severe post-effects.
