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
Creamy mouth feel. Pleasant maple notes. Let this sit for 15 minutes, add an ice cube (if desired), and enjoy.
Tried this next to its younger brother. So different, but equally enjoyable.
I’m not exactly sure why but I prefer the 12 yr version to this. I think this is a little harsher on my pallet. Overall I think it is fine but I prefer the cheaper and younger version. Medium dark color, smooth and slightly sweet but balanced, harsh but light after taste.
Great sipping rum, a step up the 12 year however completely different flavor, rich vanilla notes... if you like scotch... you will love this rum!!!!
Geruch nach getrockneten Feigen, Karamell, angenehm.
Farbe dunkler Bernstein
Geschmack süß, süße gut eingebunden, nicht aufdringlich aber present, Vanille, Pflaumen, Holznote, ein wenig Bourbon, im Abgang süss und herb zugleich mit Alkoholnote, nicht sofort weg, gefällig.
Fazit: einer von den Guten, und obwohl süss gut trinkbar ohne alle Geschmacksnerven mit Zucker zu verkleben.
Vyborny rum, vyvazena velmi intenzivna ale pomerne jemna, robustna chut, s dlhsim dozvukom. Citrus + horka cokolada, sladsi, s naznakom dubovych sudov.
I was lucky enough to find this Rum in Aldi in the UK one Christmas 1 year only maybe 5 years ago
Guess what no one knew what it was and it just sat on the shelf for weeks They don't promote the products in Aldi
So one lucky day the store manager discounted the Product to £10 a bottle little did I know what a gift that was at the time! Had been on sale for £42 all month .
Boy do I regret not buying all the discounted stock of course it's worth every penny wonderful Rum I still remember saying to myself just buy it all by the time I got home and sampled it it was too late to return to the store which I did the following day ! you know the rest as they say .
I own a bottles and only rate what I have bought
El Dorado rums differ from one another substantially, this one is a different story than 12y. On the nose there is demerara sugar, molasses, raisins, citrus fruits and licorice. On the palate, there is all above mentioned components, with a touch of oak, butter and vanilla, all well balanced, sweet, I might say a bit too sweet to fully enjoy for me. The aftertaste is long, sweet, with wood, spices, dried fruits, mostly raisins and prunes, it quite resembles cognac aftertaste. This rum is smooth, complex and easygoing. I would appreciate less sugar, but this is demerara after all, so what the heck.
