Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
El Dorado 8-year is a medium-bodied premium rum which has been recently added to the El Dorado portfolio. Distilled from fermented molasses, it is a nice option between the heavier 12-year and lighter 5-year counterparts.
This is another "okay" rum, whiskey, rum, whiskey that has sugar added to it to taste more like rum. I think if El Dorado actually tried to make rum they'd be on to something.
If not for drinks I suggest it to brief at least for 15-20 minutes! I prefer the 12 year old of course to a different price.
À venir prochainement.............................
I don't much care for mixed drinks anymore; but when I do, I either reach for this one or the Appleton reserve. I find this one goes good with pepsi
a very big difference with the 12-year-old but still excellent rum at a great price
Lambs Amber is my usual base mixing rum for rum and soda drinks. Most of my friends who are Cuba Libre drinkers are also Lambs Amber fans. Not being a fan of this drink myself I can't compare how E.D. 8 enhances the drink. I do however like it in a nice rum cocktail. For the price this is certainly a step up from a Lambs or Captain Morgan.
Makes a nice rum and coke. Easy to drink with a sweet caramel flavour. Not really any other flavours that really stand out, but easy to drink. Wouldn't drink this as a sipper, but good mixer.
Maybe it would not be a bad rum, if I had not tested El Dorado 12.
Hints of "Bananas Foster"...bananas, caramel and butterscotch.
A friend that doesn't really have much experience buying "fancy" rum, bought this as a holiday gift. I opened it up one night planning on making drinks with it, as a mixer...however after a little bit of a taste, I went for rocks and was pleasantly surprised.
Velice dobry rum s bajecnym pomerem cena/vykon. Vune je krasne nasladla a ovocna, chut opet sladsi, rum je jemny, ale je citit trochu alkoholovy ocas. Vyborne piti, doporucuji.
Delicieux pour un jeune rhum. Par contre pour 5$ de plus au Quebec vous pouvez mettre la mais sur le 12 ans qui est exeptionel.
This stuff is delicious in the rocks however it really comes into its own when mixed, huge depth of flavour and another classic from eldorado
A bit too much heat for my liking. Has sweetness but it hides behind the spiciness. This one is much better with an ice cube IMO. In this price range i would go with plantation 5..
If you want a El dorado rum, start with the 12 years old ... I like the arome on this one ... but the taste just isnt that smooth for me ...
I expected more from this 8 year. Many younger rums are competitive to this taste and price.
Le rhum eldorado 8 ans est bon et goûte le bon demerara mais pour quelque sous de plus le 12 ans est a mon avis meilleur.
This El~Dorado product is one I can certainly drink straight-up, if I have to, and enjoy it immensely, but usually, I'm mixing this with 5-Alive (citrus) and/or 7-Up, and ice. A little spicy and still plenty sweet, I call this my "go-to" rum, as it's a little less a whack on the pocketbook as the others, but still a great, great rum with the usual flavors I enjoy, like brown sugar, butterscotch/caramel, toffee, etc. providing all the flavor a guy could want while still supplying a little heat without a deadly, throat or gut-wrenching 'burn.' Beautiful stuff!
Beautiful golden color. Sweet spicy taste with a good aftertaste.
No bite, just right. Very smooth sippin' rum, a little sweet, drinking it as write. A very little alcohol taste on the back end but not to much at all- very easy going, nice. I drink import rum as my go to drink other than beer and figured I'd give this one a try for the price since I read a lot of reviews. Three filtered water ice cubes and a just a little extra filtered water as I like my rum somewhat watery rather than straight on the rocks as others might like it. Smells delicious, maybe a little honey nose initially, a sweet somewhat cask smell as well, would pair well with a nice bowl of Captain Black White Pouch tobacco pipe if I still smoked but I don't smoke the pipe anymore. On the tongue again- smooth, no real bite like some others I've tried. I don't think you could go wrong picking this up if you like a smooth sippin' rum.
in my country this bottle costs 19 euro, ED 12 YO costs 29 euro, so the price difference convinced me to first try this cheaper version.
It was not a misstep. Lovely caramel nose and full bodied taste, mainly molasses, caramel and molasses again. I miss citruses here a bit but overall a very good buy. it would be 7, but the good price adds up a point.
Som titel siger, lyder som et eventyr og glæder mig vildt til at få denne flaske åbnet også :)
About as sweet as I can manage it. Any sweeter and it would be off my scale. Also love the 5-year old version.
