Now this is some good stuff
It’s truly amazing, like 12 but better, if you don’t like 12 then you don’t like things that taste good! Look, I love dry rums too like Foursquare and Hamilton, but I can enjoy...BOTH, what a novel idea!!! I’m no expert but I know this is a great sipper, sweet but balanced, a long fruity, raisin, molasses finish.
A very fine El Dorado, knowing the 12, 15 and 21 years old I had some expectations of spices and sweetness. To some extend you will find some spices, butterscotch, vanilla and oaks aromas but once you taste the sweetness is confirmed but without the over-sweetness that sometimes occurs.
After waiting you get some more banana and fruit to it, and some hints of coffee and leather that are really enjoyable.
For the story, the distillation happens in the Wooden Continuous Coffey Still famous to enmore...
Try it out!
Sweet apple aroma. Crisp light apple forward flavor as expected. I purchased this after reading the tasting notes on El Dorado's website. I was a little disappointed as it lacks the complexity of other rums of this price point. I was looking forward to the roasted coconut they claimed, but I failed to pick it up on my palette. Nonetheless, a nice supper in contrast to the sweeter runs in my arsenal. I'll try it neat next time to see if more depth comes through.
Brilliant Rum, Just the right natural sweetness. Was fortunate to pick 2 of these bottles up for $45 Canadian on a discounted sale.
As Nomad stated below 0-sugar.
I love El Dorado but these single barrels are interesting as an insight into how the more drinkable blends are made but wouldn't drink them regularly.
Alcohol on the nose. Initially tastes of youngish wood.
Not sweet at all.
Fades into a smooth but peppery aftertaste.
