This rum is one of my favorites for under $20. It has a floral spiced flavor that is slightly sweet. Just right for sipping on ice on those hot summer nights in south Florida.

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.

Nice 5 year old, but still cocktail rum. Spicy and with character and candy like smell.

Posted over 6 years ago by BerodeQuentin from France with 40 ratings

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.

The rum of choice when drinking with coke.

Posted over 7 years ago by Mike McPhee from Canada with 13 ratings

Great colour in this rum. Not as smooth as the El Dorado rums that are aged longer but if you wish to mix with a rum, this one will do the trick excellently. My preference is with Cola. The rum can be smoothed greatly if aged in an oak barrel. After only a month there was a tremendous difference. But as is, it is still a great staple of my bar since it is priced well, has some solid flavouring and mixes well.

It's a shame you can't really buy this outside Guyana, as it's a very yummy rum.
