N- Presents of wood that always a welcoming signs, nutty, grassy with mineral. Chocolate milk and some caramel underlay. Sort of cafe mocha and kahlua. Soft, gentle and harmless, like a stroll in the woods with comfort earthiness. (85/19)

P- Coffee, kahlua on rocks, bitter chocolate, nutty with trace of sourness. Not much going on, remains gentle and soft. (82/17)

F- Short, relaxing and laid back, sourish caramel with vanilla sweetness from the oak. Nothing to wow but you will not mind sipping this, quite clean actually (83/18)

B/B- 84/18

Don't sip it. Mix it ! Best in a mix. For sipping go for the 12 years at least !!

Has some flavor, but could use more, Eldorado doesn't disappoint.

A well balanced Guyanese rum for around $20 a bottle. Makes a damn fine daiquiri too.

This rum is nothing special, the aroma is a bit off putting. Although it mixes well, the flavor and aftertaste are not great. Absolutely fine in a cocktail, but not worth drinking straight.

A rum can be good or bad in the mouth of the taster, but it is almost worse, when a rum is boring. Unfortunately this is something, that can be said about this rum.

Nose: Oak, burned suger and caramel
Taste: A small hint of spiced wood mixed with caramel and burned sugar
Overall: This is just a boring rum. There is no character, and there is nothing else to say about it.

Ikke noget sindsoprivende rom, mangler nok nogle år på bagen ift dens navnebrødre

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!
