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)

So age does make a difference. But at this price not a all bad. you could sip it but let it air first. best to mix and enjoy
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.
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.
