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 solid stuff, perfect for mixing and making exceptional cocktails. In some ways it's actually better than the 12, less added sugar, more complex. Unfortunately it's just way too expensive in Australia.
I like all the El Dorado series. This is the best. A tad bit pricey. But well worth it.
Mixed with Coca-cola, twist of lime.
I love Myer's Rum. Also like Sailor Jerry's. But it's a bit strong.
El Dorado and Myer's, all time best. Just right amount of sweetness.
I have purposely stayed away from El Dorado products as they are known to be heavily sugared. The El Dorado 8 yr, however, caught my attention as a result of the lower GPL as well as the reviews on this site. This offering set me back $31 CAD (a bargain in my area) and the vanilla, caramel and oak flavours were rather pleasant albeit a bit sweet and the aftertaste lasted for some time. ED8 will not be my next "Go To" Rum but it is a great value and a nice change from dry Rums.
Ikke en rom jeg behøves at have i skabet igen. Ok men ikke en lækker hygge rom.
El Dorado 8 year is a far cry from the much better 12 year. If you get a 8 year El Dorado, mix it with Coke or Ginger Ale, since it is not that good at all as a neat sipper. Best memory is from the Demerara Distilleries between Georgetown and Cheddi Jagan Airport in Guyana when I visited their rum distillery and enjoyed their entire line up in its own surroundings.
But I wanted rum, not whiskey. This is barely suggestive of rum.
Keeping it simple , I think i like the 8 year better then the 12
Pick it up very smooth very drinkable
Going to give it another go to see if it still stands up to my 7 rating
Yah I’ll still say this is a 7 but as for being better then the 12 I change my mind on that one the 12 is a better rum then this bit both are good offerings from El Dorado
Θα πει κάποιος (έξυπνος) .... " Δεν είναι σαν το δωδεκάρι" ...... - Τι λες ρε μεγάλε ? Σοβαρή διαπίστωση !!!!! Ένα τίμιο ρούμι με τίμια τιμή (23€) και σε όλα λίγο πιο κάτω από το δωδεκάρι ..... Του μοιάζει όμως και αυτό είναι το τίμιο της υπόθεσης ...... Δυνατό άρωμα που κρατάει στο ποτήρι ακόμα και όταν τελειώσει το ποτό ...... Γεύση και επίγευση σε (αισθητά) μικρότερες εντάσεις από το mainstream 12 ...... Από τις καλλίτερες επιλογές σε αυτήν την τιμή ....

Not horrible by any means, but for the small price difference go up to the 12. You won't regret it. The 12 is much more complex and a great sipper. This just doesn't compare even though it isn't a horrible rum.
Good average rum for the start of tasting. Like it.
Tento rum sa mi viac hodi do cuba libre ako na bezne pitie, jeho chut je jednoducha a trosku ostrá ale s colou vynika ako ma
I consider this one to be one of my most favourite rums. The intense tones of dark chocolate are why I always like to return to this rum.
And have I mentioned the price?
Hozza a 12 éves alapízeit csak minden kicsit laposabb, nyersebb. Édesebbnek érzem mint a 12 évest, de inkább csak azért mert kevesebb a mögöttes tartalom. Nem rossz tisztán sem, de nem igazán karakteres. Az édessége jól ellensúlyozza a kicsit nyers alkoholt. Az ár/érték aránya helyén van, pont annyival gyengébb az El Dorado 12-nél mint amennyivel olcsóbb. Érdemes megkóstolni, de inkább csak a 12 éves után érdekességképp.
This doesnt quite have the finish and depth needed to be a pure sipping rum. It does however, work just fine as a aged rum for cocktails
Ikke smagt. .
From Guyana, caramel, brûléed sugar, tobacco and dried fruit.
If you like sweet rums run away from this... More affordable version of older El Dorado 15YO, with alcohol burn without some interesting tastes.
Will make a decent mixer, but as a sipper you'd wish you'd paid the extra few quid for El Dorado 12, which is the best of all the range, not including the 25 which I haven't tried.
I'd rather have 2 bottles of the 12 than 1 bottle of ED 21.
As you can tell, I'm going on about ED 12 because I should have just got another bottle instead of trying the 8.
After you drown it in coke you may as well be drinking Mount Gay Eclipse.
I am familiar with El Dorado from my travels but only just a week ago did it get distributiion in my state. I has been amazing turning people on to the brand. I have been holding out on finishing my 8yr because I did not want to have to order or leave the state for it but Christmas let me finish off my bottle and one will replace it tomorrow.
To sweet for my taste, strong vanilla taste. Positive is that you get an above average rum for a great price.
Top shelf mixing rum. Makes a fantastic Mai Tai. Highly recommend
Had this at a friends house (only rum he had) and it was ok for sipping in lack of other and better choises.
This cheap rooms belong in the high end. But there is still some way to big brother
After having great success with the El Dorado 12 year, I figured I would try another from the same brand at a lower price point. Although I am new to rum, I can still notice a difference. Not as good as the 12 year, which makes sense since it's cheaper. Glad I tried it, will buy again for sure, but not necessarily a staple for my collection.
