Tasty, but not quite great
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.
Mám vyzkoušeno El Dorado 12 a nyní i 5, rozdíl pozná i kojenec, tento rum je velmi podobný Pampero Especial, vůně i chuť, dokonce když je mám vedle sebe ve sklenkách a hraju si jakože kterej je jakej, tak si je celkem pletu. Pětku už si nekoupim.
Not a terrible rum for the price. Also not an awful sipper.
Nose: butterscotch and alcohol
Taste: caramel, vanilla, and oak
Finish: slight alcohol burn
Not quite as good as it's older brothers, but good if you're in a bind.
