Tasty, but not quite great
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.
Same at the 5 years. A little sweeter. The molasses flavor starts to come through. Still the alcool burn. Go for the 12 or 15 if you wanna sip it. Better yet. Kirk and sweeney !
At first it has quite a sharp alcohol so it needs to sit for a while to develop the taste and aroma. Afterwards it has a nice wooden aroma, quite sweet but you can still sense the alcohol strength in it.
Probobly the best budget rum from what i have tasted and in my opinion. This rum has a good complexity for the price, nothing special yet more complex than what i would expect for the price.
Notes i get from this rum are: molasses, vanilla, oak(barrel), dark fruits and a tiny hint of spice.
This is a must try rum after you have tried the el dorado 12
I think, this is one of the good rum in the El Dorado series.
Of couse, 12 years and 15years are tasty rum, however, this 8years have different nice taste.
Suger cane, brown suger flover is stronger than old brothers.
For me, this is as good as 15 years.
I snagged a bottle of this as it was only $3 more than the 5 year, and it was noticeably better, though not extremely so. A solid cocktail/everyday rum.
Solid rum. Nice on its own, but it’s probably worth dropping a few quid more to get the 12 or 15 if that’s what you’re after. A with ice kind of rum.
I love drinking this rum on the rocks. It has a delightful taste and has so much of the fruity complexity of the 12 and 15 but simply not that sweet. It is a great day to day sipper because of the hearty flavour and the friendly price. Obviously it is fantastic in mixed drinks as well, particularly fond of it in a Rum Manhattan with Lillet Rose and orange bitters.
Jak za tę cenę na prawdę poprawny rum. Fajny ciemnawy kolor. Lekko słodki, troszkę ostry, czuć melasę, lekko wyczuwalna kawa... trzeba docenić cena/jakość.
