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.
Now this is some good stuff
I bought this rum again, after buying it about 12 years ago. Back then this was sensational, and friends also commented about how delicious this tasted. My new bottle, today, tastes bitter , sour, and really unpleasant, like a 3 year old rum from a supermarket. I’m exasperated and considering writing to El Dorado.
Dette er en rigtig god rom. Jeg vil til en hver tid foretrække denne rom frem for Ron Zacapa 23, til stort set samme pris.
Den har lige en tand mere en sin lillebror El Dorado 12. En rom jeg godt vil købe igen.
Nose - Spice, Black Cherry, Vanilla
Palate - Licorice, Wood, Dates, Cherry, Black Pepper
Surprising, complex fruit notes. Lingers on the palate with a peppery finish.
I havet reade a lot about this rum before I tried it yesterday.
It has a Nice smell, the first impression in the mouth is a litte bit sticky, byt after that the taste explodes and has a nice long after taste too.
Will try to add som water next time for less stickyness..
One can feel the difference to the 12 years old. More complex, a cognac like rum. The only problem for me is that the bottle is over too soon.
I personally find there isn’t too much of a difference between the 12 year and the 15 year.
Both of them still have the exceptional El Dorado flavour that I think of when craving rum.
I suppose the 15 year has a smoother experience but you’ll get just as much satisfaction out of the 12 year for less of the price.
I rate them the same.
