Truly a fantastic choice
Didn't buy the bottle but found some at a tasting bar. Honey-toffee clean and no burn. Probably my favourite tasting rum however prohibitively expensive.
Hands down, the El Dorado has a much better and smoother taste than any rum in its category. I would buy this over and over again.
Excellent in many ways with mild/soft tastes and flavors. IMO not significantly better than the 21 year to warrant the $350/300% increase in price. I'm going to try them side-by-side and update ratings; maybe both are 10's.
Appearance: Medium Amber
Aroma: Very mild old oak, like well-used wine barrels. Can't detect much brown sugar, caramel, or molasses
Taste: Slightly bitter; less bitter than the 21 yr. and less sweet
Flavor: Old oak gives way to light brown sugar, almost white sugar syrup. Left me wanting stronger brown/golden sugar flavor.
Texture: Light body, sting of alcohol
Finish: Medium length, light brown sugar syrup
So i finally found a bar in miami (cubaocho) that serves the glass of this for $30 so I didn’t have to gamble $500 for a bottle I hadn’t tasted. And yeah was as good as advertised extremely smooth and complex, only reason I give it a 9 is because I actually like the slight burn el dorado 15y/o gives that both 21 and 25 are missing. In my book you can have an extremely polished/aged rum and still have you know it’s freakin rum (look at abuelo centuria or appleton joy)
Amazing nose & exquisite palate! Extremely smooth but expected at that price point. If you can afford it, it is a must have in your collection. It is a treat!
