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.

A classic aged rum without being to expensive, bright welcoming colour and nose with a pleasant after taste, you feel it all the down, not to be rushed but allowed to excite your taste buds, sipped over a little ice is best, will work well in a mix and is always best drunk with friends.

Starts with quite a dry nose. Good mix of spice and buttery smoothness with a lingering woodsy finish that coats the mouth. Not as buttery as the 20 year, which is a good thing. Seems to be missing a slight complexity that would make this a truly fantastic rum.

This, my friends, is Rum. Not fussy, not overworked, just delicious. I take it neat.

This was the first aged rum I ever laid my lips on, it was dry, spicy and slightly sweet. The richness of the demerara sugar gave this rum a great depth that many rums can't hold up to these days. No wonder it's one on the top rums in the world.

With a few ice cubes and marry them for about 10 minutes. On the side of a hot tub...dreamscape!!

this rum is a bit less sweeter and also drier than his younger 12 years old brother. Not exactly my kind of tasting profile but if you want to sip something "matured" then I would choose this one.

As promised, Rum Ratings send me a nip of this rum in the mail for joining the site and writing reviews. It's not bad, although I suspect it's probably harder to tell drinking it from a miniature bottle. It's smooth, good taste, but to be honest it's not going to take me away from my favorites. I'd like to try other vintage from El Dorado, as they strike me as the genuine article. Hope I don't get lynched here...

The first hit on the front side is a little harsh, a strong alcohol bite. The finish is smooth with hints of vanilla and a strong molasses lingering flavor.

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.
