Tasty, but not quite great

This is a great mixing rum! No one eats seasoning by itself and this is just that a mixing rum!

un rom bun cu gust de zahar ars, cacao, caramel
alcoolul se simte destul de pregnant atat in miros cat si in gust, dar s au oprit la fix cat sa nu devina suparator
un debut frumos in lumea romurilor EL Dorado )

Not good not bad either. The nose is quite pleasant with cocoa and caramel, but the sting on the alcohol doesn't let it develop. Very nice for cocktails like sugarless mojitos

I noticed an aroma that made me believe they partly used sherry casks for this one. And I wasn't quite wrong: According to the ministryofrum, they use bourbon and whisky casks, and among the latter the must also be some ex-sherry casks made of Spanish oak.

Dejlig mixer rum. Den kan dog også sagtens nydes rent.

Can be sipped, but it has a burn to it. I like smooth rums for sipping.

For the price it is a ok rum

I bought and dronk 2 bottles

Good bargain rum. No crazy flavours.. a bit to strong alcholic burn for my taste.

Anything El Dorado or Plantation you can’t miss. Solid 8 year old rum I prefer the 12 but this is just fine.

Sugar: 14 GPL. I bought this today because I was out of what I call good mixing rums. It was cheap and cheerful at $35 CDN. Similar to the other El Dorado rums and less money than the 5 year old vintage. Can't figure out that but the LCBO in Ontario tends to have some bargains at times. Picked up several bottles of Flor De Cana 18 for $50 CDN at the same time the 12 year old was selling for $45 CDN. On to the taste of the 8 year old El Dorado. As noted, it has a similar profile as the 12 year old but is less sweeter. A bit sharper on the nose but it calms down after some time in the glass. Heavy on the oak along with some burnt sugar, a touch of vanilla and some spice. I could go on with all kinds on trace aromas and smells but it's a $35 rum so it's not that complex. I bought this for using in Rum punch and overall I think it's the bargain rum of the El Dorado line. I would purchase this again as a mixer.

This is a wonderful multi-purpose rum. It's great in a Tiki cocktail and even serviceable neat or on the rocks. It's not expensive so there's really nothing to complain about here.
