El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum

El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year

Guyana | Aged | 43.0% ABV

El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum is crafted from 15 to 25 year old rums that are then blended and married together in bourbon oak casks. Prior to blending the original batches are distilled using 4 unique stills - the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills, the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, and the Versailles single wooden pot still.

The bottle of El Dorado Special Reserve 15-year was inspired by the the old hand-blown flasks used by sugar planters on the banks of the Demerara river.

Sip neat. Dark, sweet, spicy on the finish. Will try with a cigar. Recommend for the collection.

After tasting the 12 year (which was awesome) i decided to try the older brother. It has the El Dorado smell to it, powerful and sweet. The taste is a lot to take, it has a sharp edge with spicy and herbal notes. Overal a great rum, if you tend to like sweeter rums (as i do) stick with the younger 12. If you like some more kick, you should try this

Thanks a lot, Vomi, for sharing a sample with me. This is my first encounter with El Dorado, I had high expectations as the DDL is the heir of the legendary Guyanese distilleries which produced the mythical Demerara rums.

The aroma is not too intense, somehow similar to the Pusser's, composed of Guyanese molasses, nail polish remover, honey and apples. After some time i sensed lemon peel and warm dry wood.

In the mouth the rum is thick and syrupy. Initial sips strike with a mixture of sweetness and peppery spiciness. At first I thought these two sensations were in balance but this pair overwhelms the other tastes. One can sense blood and metal, followed by some warm woody notes with honey, Demerara sugar, toffee and molasses. The finish is just a lasting sweetness with bitter notes of honey and molasses.

The overall experience is quite disappointing. Although this rum does have some Guyanese character, it seems that it was diluted down to 40% using sugar syrup instead of water. I hoped that the aroma and taste would be richer. It's not a terrible rum but tasting a sample prevents me from buying the full bottle.

Il n'est pas mauvais en soi mais je lui ai trouvé un goût de réglisse assez désagréable (forcément, je n'aime pas la réglisse).

This is a decent Rum and I can see how many will like this. It is sweet but still has some character and spice. All in all well rounded. Can be a little pricey but well worth having in you collection

I received a bottle of this as a Christmas gift and enjoyed it thoroughly over several months.

This was one of the first aged rums I tasted, and it left an impression. Dark molasses flavor, more complexity, slight bitterness, and more of an overt bite compared to others I was drinking at the same time. Frankly, it was probably too good for me at the time, and I'm eager to pick up another bottle of this (or the 12 Year) at some point once I'm more attuned.
