El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum

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.

Zatímco mladší brácha mě věru nijak nedojal, tohle je úplně sklenka rumu! Vůně nic moc (pro můj vkus příliš štiplavá), ale ta chuť! Ne každý panák, ale každý lok chutná jinak (a všechny dobře), takže v jediné flašce máte vlastně nějakou stovku různých rumů. A to se i za tu nekřesťanskou tisícovku vyplatí.

Seriously good rum. This was my 2nd choice when my plantation 20th anniversary was sold out. I didn’t expect to get more of what I like the plantation for. Now I drank the whole bottle and don’t have a review 🤪

The El Dorado 15-year old is a clear favorite among the regular El Dorados. It has a deep spicy dark caramel flavour and is both more balanced and more complex than the others. A very good rum!

I had some of this around a fire last night we were comparing this one and zacapa 23. I preferred the zacapa but everyone else liked this one. It’s good and has a great oaky flavour but has that alcohol bite the zacapa 23 doesn’t.

I keep coming back to this as my favorite sipping Guyana. It doesn't break the bank and has some of the richest flavors of any rum I have tasted.

It's the only rum I can get my bourbon snob friends to appreciate.

First moment of taste is very sweet, followed by Vanilla/Oak.

This is good rum. A more refined version of the 12-year. 8/10

The best I've ever had until this point, and the rum that made me want to actually try more. After tasting this one, I'm definitely keen on trying the 21-year old version. Your mouth gets filled by a strong sweet flavor but not too sweet, just the right balance.

Really like this one, it’s a rather sweet rum but it’s partly offset by the 43% alcoholic strength. I tend to keep a bottle of this one or it’s less pricey sibling (12y)

Very taste, great aftertaste. Not too sweet or not too strong.

This rum is really a complex and contradictory one: quite different compared to 12 yo, still a lot of added sugar (~35 g/l), same defect of sugar in the end of the bottle. Flavours of dried fruits, nuts, prune, orange peel, an harsh afterburn that reminds a notorious single malt whisky, with this particular note that is prominent and drier and less sweet and smooth than 12 yo. Good choice overall.

Strong smell, nedd time to open up

This is definitely a complex sipper. After a couple of decades of tasting fine rum I am starting to realize that Guyana may not be my favorite source. Could be the demerara that doesn't work for me. Having said all that I can see how some would love this rum. Definitely a quality rum. I believe great rum needs some alcohol bite somewhere. The bite in this was more of a chomp on my pallet. There are tremendous flavors within but I could not appreciate them fully as a result. For me this finish was too short and heated.

Anbefales, ikke favoritten, duft av vanilje og god fat aroma.

Lots of character. Depths of raisins. Darker in flavor than the 21.

C'est un beau rhum à déguster seul. Ne pas servir cela avec un accompagnement.

Posted at Guyana Marriott Hotel Georgetown about 1 month ago by Uwpaleoman from United States with 1 rating

Beautiful golden color, and complex on the nose and palate. Perfect balance of warmth and sweetness. Mellows further once the icecube melts. Great sipping rum. Locally in Georgetown, a bottle runs about $55 USD, whereas the 12yr is $35 USD and 21 yr is $110 USD. So bang for the buck, go for 12 yr.

Really loving this brand. It's sweet but sophisticated. Will explore more types of this brand for sure!

Love El Dorado rums. Sweeter (definitely not too sweet!). Great mild rum with longer afertaste. Great sipping rum for me.

I really think this is a great rum for anyone. My father never drinks rum and he loved this said it was very smooth. I thought it was really well balanced and well nuanced and yes quite smooth.

Sorry, but this tastes very similar to three year old rums that I have had. It just does not taste like 15 year old rum.

Posted about 2 months ago by Adam Arbus from Canada with 17 ratings

Very good rum but still not as good as the 21 yr. probably like Zacapa 23 for the same price.
