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.

You can't go wrong with any of the El Dorado rums but this one is awesome.

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.

Nemůžu úplně říct, že lepší ale určitě výraznější, hutnejší a hlavně dřevitejší verze 12. Pomalu se blíží whiskey.

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.

It tasted well on rocks, very rich smell of toffee, brown sugar and surprisingly window cleaner, dried fruits with a bit of alco burn on the end and a long after taste. I compared it with Plantation XO and somehow like Plantation more as this one you don't really want to continue drinking after 2 glasses. Don't get me wrong, its a good rum but not fully up to my taste.

Taste of roasted nuts, plums, coffee, honey. Aromas of cinnamon, clove, plums.Excellent finish with long lasting aromas. A little bit strong kick. Dark color

I’ve been on a bourbon kick for a few months and this is my first new rum in a while. What a nice return. It has a beautiful deep caramel color and inviting nose. More comforting that exciting, but all around it’s wonderful in your glass. It doesn’t have much bite at all and goes down very smooth. You can definitely see the sugary legs on your glass, but it doesn’t get to the syrupy side. Mount feel isn’t neither thin or thick, and the flavors change during the taste and from taste to taste. Really enjoying this one.

I've always heard so much about El Dorado and wanted to try it for myself and let me tell you I was not disappointed. A moderate price for an excellent rum. Opening the bottle right off the bat I get aromas of dark chocolate and vanilla. The taste not too sweet but very rich and bold with a very smooth finish. This is the perfect rum for when I want to sit down an just relax. Dare I say one of my all time favorite.
