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.
En anelse bedre end 12 års, stadig lidt kedelig eftersmag og en anelse sprittet.
it's my best rum so far. The smell catches you. You drink it down smooth with a long finish that settles a warmth that last
made even better by the fact that I picked it up for a song at a supermarket who obviously mispriced it. The only thing I would prefer is that it be bottled at 40% rather than 43%.
Sugar: 38 gpl. I purchased this rum with great expectations but I was disappointed in the bitter taste and overall burn. Too much oak for me. Sweetness was good. Some different flavors that I could not quite figure out. There are far better sipping rums on the market. If you are going to purchase an El Dorado, step up to the 21 year old bottle. Or save the money and purchase the 12 year old. It's a better value than either of the 15 or the 21 year old.
Ma note de 10 tient compte du rapport qualité/prix de ce rhum.
En effet ce n'est sans doute pas le meilleur rhum du monde mais dans cette gamme de prix je n'ai pas trouvé de meilleur concurrent. Son équilibre est parfait si bien que j'en ai fait mon allday.
I got a bottle out of a recommendation. It is not bad, but I could have spent my money better. The flavor is bland and it is underproofed. I do not think I can relate its flavor to what I normally do with other rums. It is not disapointing, but given the options that there are, I would choose something else.
Nice and well tasting, in my opinion very well balanced in flavour, medium sweetness and good tast from the oak.
One of my all time favourites. This is probably my all around favourite rum, for value. It's not the cheapest, but not the most expensive. It's a beautiful rum, that's priced cheaper than the Zacapa or Zaya, or some of the others, but much better than the other cheaper priced rums.
Great flavor with a slight bitter taste but smooth finish.
I keep the 21, 15, and 12 year in my cabinet readily available at all times!
I enjoy the 15 neat but when I am enjoying the 21, I'll have it with a splash of coke.
The nose is Very aromatic and balanced on the agrum fruit ( mandarine, orange). In the mounth, this rum is sweet & candied fruits with a little bit of smoked aroma's.
the afterburn is long on the coffee.
I like this rum as much as the 12 year version. I just think it has a little more bite to it.
Nice rum to have straight up. Nice balanced flavors
A solid rum for a good price. Real nice, lightly sweet finish.
For the price, there are far superior rums. Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva comes to mind. Superior at half the price.
El Dorado 15 Year is een wereldwijd geliefde rum die bekend staat om zijn volle en rijke palet die barst van de tropische smaken en kruidige tonen, zowel op de neus als op het palet. Beschreven als een aantrekkelijke, rijke koper tint. Een complexe neus van banketbakker suiker, bananen en cederhout. Een zijdezachte binnenkomst leidt tot een matig full-bodied gehemelte van levendige, maar toch verfijnd droge caramel en gedroogde tropische fruitsmaken geschoord door warme alcohol en eiken kruiden. Dit premium product is een mix van speciaal geselecteerde oude rum. Sommigen zijn zelfs 25 jaar oud en zijn gerijpt in eiken vaten.
heerlijke donkere smaak van rietsuiker erg lekker bij een sigaar
dans la lignée du 12 mais plus sur l alcool.(évidemment ) les mêmes arômes . Un grand plaisir à goûter .toujours cette sensation de douceur, d épices . Facile à boire .
odeur douce agréable tirant sur la vanille, le bois
en bouche assez sec, très léger gout de vanille puis viens le gout de fut, de bois, presque cuir, rhum complexe et puissant qui demande d'avoir un peu d'expérience pour l'apprécier.
Another quality rum from ED. Not as sweet as the 12 yr, and honestly a totally different animal. Quite fruity and well balanced. The finish is long and lovely. Leather and black licorice (which is a first for me). Definitely a keeper!
I really had big expectations for this. Thats why i probably got dissapionted. Compared to the price it do not taste as i thought. Very strong taste,thats all. I will not recomand this one
I really don't care about the colour. I could drink it straight in the dark and it would still be amazing. I have sailed all over the world and tried different rums in 79 countries, and never have I found anything comparable to ED 15. It is a smooth, mellow drink with a great finish. I'm not much of a rum expert as far as identifying flavour nuances, but I do know what pleases me and this is it. I personally keep it in my freezer and drink it straight in a chilled glass. No ice.
I had previously shared a bottle of El Dorado 21 with friends at the cigar lounge and we all felt that was a "10" rated rum. Picked up a bottle of the 15 year and I felt it had a very strong medicine afterburn to it. Didn't taste any of the black cherry I got with the 21. Adding a small amount of water made it a little better for me.
