Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The blend of El Dorado 5-Year rum's is distilled in a both column and wooden stills before maturing for five years in bourbon oak casks.
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.
As far as aged rums go this one's a baby but surprisingly smooth. The aroma in the bottle is quite nice. I can't put my finger on it but the aroma hints of sweetness but not a syrupy sweetness but a fruity sweetness. This is accentuated when smelled via a snifter.
The flavor is nice. Sweet but not cloyingly. Far from it. Seems the sweet is natural. Doesn't taste like there's added sugars. Has elements of butterscotch and vanilla and a little cinnamon. A little pepperiness, too. Not harsh at all but surprisingly smooth. I can see some enjoying this as a sipping rum while others use it in mixed drinks. Very versatile. A great rum for the price.
An excellent mixer rum.... Mix with iron bru to give a unique cocktail... I
A lot like the El~Dorado 8 in terms of body and texture, but just barely misses the mark of the quality of spiciness/oaky flavors that the 8 has, making the 8 more to my liking. But still, the El~Dorado 5 makes a quality mixer, so I'd have a hearty dose of this with some pineapple juice and 7-up and ice thrown in! Cheers!

Fles: 70cl, dop
Kleur: amber bruin
Karamel, eikenhout en kleine alcohol burn domineren.
Kleine broertje van de El Dorado 8 jaar oud. Alleen iets minder zacht. Maar toch,voor €18 was dit een prima rum.
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.
It is okay to drink straight up but might be kind of hard compared to older El Dorados. From what I've seen the price is very similar to the 8-year El Dorado and I'd advise to get that one instead for drinking it straight up.
Som titel siger, så må El Dorado jo være et paradis og så vidt jeg ved er ingen gået gal i byen med netop denne rom. At komme hen på hylden og se vigtig ud :)
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.
this is a good house rum for mixing. I prefer a stronger taste .
low end El Dorado great for mixing. Looks more sophisticated when you bring to a party
You can drink it straight up, but it better with cola, and much better then others you mix with cola.
This is a pretty good mixing rum, but not nearly as smooth or tasty as the ED12 or ED15. Hits the palate with the simple taste of rum, followed by a good amount of Navy rum type burn when sipped alone. In our house, its is used as a mixer, gives a good taste and kick to cola. Pyrat will remain my goto for the rum and coke scene however.
A mix between gold and aged. Everyone sipped an El Dorado rum, already knows quality of this brand. Recommended for most, highly recommended for beginners.
Dette er blot en billig rom som drikkes en sjælden gang.
Begins with a bite but can be mellowed with many slices of lime. OK rum but not my favorite. Really a mixer rum.
This can be sipped on its or drunk straigh. It's much better than the . Mixed ita okay too
But a great mixing rum
Nice 5 year old, but still cocktail rum. Spicy and with character and candy like smell.
Good value for the money! it both sips and mixes well.
Color : Amber
Flavour : Mellow rum with ripe fruits, sweet spices like cacao & tonka
Palate : Well balanced, med-bodied
A great rum in long drinks like Mojito & Hurricane, or with ginger ale.
Just love every single ED bottles!
Excellent on the rocks (probably too hot for sipping neat), nicely complex and oaky. Mix it with coconut water and you have the world's greatest drink. Also great with cola and ginger beer. At between $12-$17 this can't be beat for value.
