El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum

El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year

Guyana | Aged

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.

I have waited a long time for the 15 year old El Dorado rum to be available in Michigan. This batch is the best rum I have ever tasted. Hands down! Powerful flavor, sweet rum nectar, smooth with a tiny bite but a good bite to let you know that you are drinking a great rum that has gusto. Bravo!!

Really enjoyed this, so balanced and tasty. I like it better than 12 but find myself coming back to 12 more often simply because of the price.

This is the rum against which all others are judged. The taste is a perfect balance of sweetness to tannic barrel flavors, creating a complexity not found in other backsweetened runs. Not as cloying as Diplomatico. Flavors present consist of vanilla, tea, burnt caramel, espresso, dried fruits with slight citrus zest at a short, clean finish. Drink neat with no water or mixers!

One of the best rums I've tried, it could be the benchmark for others. Really easy to say good things about it and not do it justice. If you see it try it, it's an excellent choice.

Found the 15 yr after a lot of searching and was, at first, impressed but not blown away. This has changed with each new tasting. Quickly this rum has surpassed all others for its smoothness and flavor. Yet to try the 12 or 21 yr but this is a truly impressive rum

I've just received a mini bottle of this rum from RumRatings, so that I had the chance of tasting it: I liked it indeed :) !

The colour is a copper red gold.
The aroma has notes of caramel and banana. There are some notes of wood also but fairly discreet.
Oak flavors are predominant on the palate but the rum remain sweet and very pleasant.
Edit April 25, 2014: Now that I've been able to compare this rum with its older brother 21 yo, I can say that this rum is my favorite one. Note raised to 10.

...at least in my opinion. I gave the 12 year a 9 out of 10 only because I had not tried the 15 year special reserve yet and man I was right. This one gets the full 10 out of 10 in my book. This rum is more mellow than the 12 year. A little less sweet however the flavors in this rum is more pronounced. You can really taste the hints of vanilla, almonds, oaky and fruits. This rum will coat your tongue like silk and does not give you any burn. Simply amazing to drink neat, on the rocks, simple coke an rum or other mixed drinks.

However I will say. This is a really fine rum. I would rather use the El Dorado 8 year or maybe 12 year for mixing. Leave this one for special settings and drinking neat or on the rocks.
