On the nose, notes of nuts are released on the almond and walnut. It is nevertheless very fresh with perhaps a little orange aroma. In the mouth, alcohol is present but the sweet side makes for a good balance. Very complex with a super long finish. It is a beautiful rum but like his brother Enmore, it is just as expensive.

A very nice nose that needs to breathe a bit (63% vol). I pick up tobacco, homemade caramel, leather, vanilla and wooden planks with sap-like overtones. There’s no denying the pot still character. In the mouth the rum hit’s me intensely with the same lovely notes found in the nose, but it also feels a little sharper than other cask strength rums in this category. The finish is fairly subtle given the initial flavour explosion, but lingers for a while with a little woody caramel. Very nice. The slight lack of refinement and high price, holds this otherwise wonderful bottle from achieving a 9 in my book.

Really delicious Demerara. Complex, deep flavours, spices, raisins, plum, coffee, no added BS (sugar etc) - Amen. Love it.

Top rum van El Dorado. Met een abv van 63℅ zijn de smaken en aromas erg sterk. Caramel, tabak, tropisch fruit, kaneel.

Good and powerfull El Dorado.( Not as powerfull as Port Mourant 1999 ) but powerfull. The nose is Christmas, the taste is a bit more sharp compared to Port Mourant. It is really good. Can’t understand the low rating!

Rum tasting in the Finnish wilderness with my good old friend continued with El Dorado 2002 Versailles. Beautiful bottle and label design. Golden color. Oak mixed with orange to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Hot ending.

Very good rum and how El Dorado should be, without added sugar and with a great punch!

N- Interestingly as well intensely made. Squeezing whole of uncut passion-fruit, breath in the distant fragrant of the fruit with hint of earth. Well lay with rich cafe mocha in the middle and welcoming fume-y notes. Long lasting and evolved well to roasted peppercorn with tinge of brown syrup. (89/22)

P- Mouthwatering, burst of dried fruits of raisin, hawthorn and bitter chocolate. Authentic, earthy, spicy and semi aggressive with refine richness. Dry, tannin with raising fume of charred strength to flex its muscle, just the way how I like my rum. (93/23)

F- Long, alluring mouth coat, dry, herb-y, rum soaked dried fruits sweetness and reasonable depth to mesmerize. In the sea of rum, to encounter a genuine flavours like this are cheer-able. (92/33)

B/B- 92/23

My only problem with this rum is that it's too sweet for me, I would give it a solid 8 but that sugar was too much. Nice vanilla and caramel taste, sweet in the ending. Zero burn, and with 63% looks suspicious (how much added sugar? Didn't found anything online).

I had this rum as an old fashioned. The taste was really good and complex. Starting with a chocolate flavor in the first place I experienced a very intense note of coffee in the aftertaste.
A delicious rum which is unfortunately not one of the most affordable ones.
