Im new to the rum game so i didnt know what 'hogo' or 'funk' tastes like. But i learned from the description that this is it. Its a bit of an acquired taste, i dont hate it but i dont love it either. It has a little bit of a whiskey vibe in the aftertaste if im not wrong

El dorado classic flavors. Halfway deep, sweet and dried fruits notes.
The nose is Bananas, maple and hints of vanilla!

Nice medium honey color. Aroma is maple with a slight mustiness and a hint of lemon. Right away you can taste a sweet maple syrup on the front of your tongue. Medium weight mouthfeel. Lots of lingering spiciness.

A dark amber rum with marzipan, vanilla and dried fruit aroma. It's a bit dry, like a whisky, but you feel a taste of ripe fruit, vanilla and coffee. I tested just once, only 3 cl, but I liked it a lot. For me, it was better than El Dorado 15-year. Is on my shopping list, for sure!

There is much pronounced molasses, oak and raisins on the nose and in the taste, with a spicy finish. The rum itself is not very complex, but the taste is distinctively strong and molasses impart its depth. For Demerrara it is not overly sweet (15g/l), which for me is a plus. I can easily sip this one as it is reasonably smooth (there indeed is a bit of a burn), but its robustness truly excels in rum and coke. Good value for the money.

Lekker in de cola, benieuwd naar de 12 jaar oude versie

Decent quality for the price goes will with coke and lime! Nice for mixing!

Probably best for mixing, but not too bad in a snifter. Strong caramel and brown sugar aroma. Not as sweet, grassy taste. Great staple for the bar.

The smell is just good, a little too sharp on alcohol, not a powerful flavor taste. On the same range of price I would buy Plantation 5 years. ED8 it’s not my kind of rum.

Anyway, you won’t die if you try it. Enjoy !
