Now this is some good stuff
All that Enmore...Raisins, dried fruits, coffee, dark molasses...Whoa! A good one. FINALLY no added sugar (I can scoop it in myself if I want to, thanks - much harder to get rid of the crap). The El Dorado boys finally allow their spirits to shine, after Velier showed them how. Amen.
Lovely nose with light caramel, oak, sweet tropical fruits and something mineralised and slightly spicy and chalk like. As the rum enters my mouth, again I pick up a mineralised character, light caramel and wood, but also subtle notes of cherries and ripe plums. It’s very, very good if a little light bodied, which is surprising, considering 21 years of ageing. The finish lingers for a good while with a warming sensation of the fruity notes mentioned above. Given the 56,5% vol. it’s very refined, but overall I still find it a little overpriced.
Great rum, so full of flavor, just like the other two in the same series. This is how El Dorado should be, without added sugar and high strength punch!
I like all the standard rum from El Dorado (12, 15 & 21) and of course the 25yo which is fantastic.
Tested this one during Birka’s rumcruise 2018 and didn’t like at all, but to maybe excuse myself I think it’s quite difficult to test that many different rums during a rather short time.
Purchased a sample of this rum for around £13 from Master of Malt the bottle usually retails fot £175. This rare expression from el dorado is divine. A definite finishing rum for the end of the night as it's easy to get drunk quickly with its hidden 56.6% abv.
It's a fine example of guyanese demerara rum a wonderful one at that. It reminds me of the el dorado 21 but much more powerful. It does not feel at all the strength and is so easy to drink. It's simply a wonderful expression!
With a nice amber color, this rum has notes of candied fruits like prune and apricot. There are also woody notes and after a long aeration, the exotic fruits that arrive. In the mouth, the woody takes the top with always the fruits that disappear slowly. The end is very long always on the wooded with light notes of tobacco. Great rum but expensive.
I was impressed with how smooth this one is considering it is almost 60% and with no burn on the throat. It has a nice sweet and natural taste. When you first have it in your mouth, the flavour is incredible and this would easily be a higher rating if it had a more interesting finish. Even still though, this is a very nice rum overall and i would consider getting a bottle but it is very expensive.
Very well ballanced between sweet and dry. Dark tones of wood chocolate and molasse. Complex body with more layer supported by higher level of alcohol. Aftertaste is average long more on dry side. Nice surprise but overpriced from my POV.
