Truly a fantastic choice
Well over 1,800 aged dark rums enjoyed and El Dorado 25 year is easily on my Top 10 list. It is sublime, super smooth, like molten chocolate, no burn at all and contains plenty of amazing flavors. I tried this amazing rum the first time at the Marriott hotel in Georgetown Guyana.

This ED 25y is simply stunning. A truely amazing spirit with rich flavours and complexity, well balanced all the way. Every glas puts a smile on your face and adds the special something to an evening.
Definitely a must-try and highlight for every cabinet.
Exceptionnal and slightly too expensive.
Its a great rum that should be sipped while listening to Jazz.
It's a rich yet subtle, complex and well balanced.
Very few rums I've experienced give me as much pleasure as this bottle of El Dorado 25 Years Old. The rum is soft, subtle, with a rich dark caramel nose, oaken spice, nuts, dried fruit, well.... grab a bottle already. So what if it's a few dollars. The best in life costs extra.
First of all, what a stunning bottle that is. Looks good where ever you put it 😉
It's an expensive bottle of rum, but worth every penny.
The color is fantastic, and the rum is full of life and just melts on your tongue.
Its fruity and dry. I can taste vanilla, oak, raisin and tobacco. Of course its diffrent from one man to another 😀
The price of this one hurts still to this day, but I can't complain about the flavor, the impact of pulling out this bottle, the completeness it gives my soul... It's rich and delicious with heavy raisin sweetness at the start, ending clean and dry. Smooth and extremely dark. Yes there is still a touch of buyer's regret, but only because the happiness it gives it similar to the joy from it's less expensive brethren of the El Dorado line...
Why sweeten this kind of a product to obscurity? All one tastes is sugar. It destroys the rum - and we know from independent bottlers that Demerara CAN be good. Overpriced nonsense.
I enjoy rums with raisin and date taste, this one is one big raisin explosion. It is a bit too sweet, which is alright in my book, but it might put off some people.
