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.
Now this is some good stuff
Probablemente en conjunto, de lo mejor que hay. Mas dulce que los jamaicanos, pero sin excederse. Con un bouquet extraordinario en la boca. Menos alcohólicos que muchos caribeños. Aunque el precio podría ser mas bajo, es uno de los rones mas “rones” que conozco, el balance es perfecto.
It’s as smooth and complex as Zacappa XO which costs much more.
There’s a slight burn which fades away very quickly and than this one opens with a ton of flavors. Sweetness in a form of toffife caramel burnt nuts and a ton more. Aftertaste lasts for a whole minute.
I liked the 12 years on a rocks but this one is to be enjoyed on it’s one.
This one is a must.
Honestly i expect something little bit else after i had El dorado 12. This is more classical taste. El dorado 12 is rly different, personally i like 12 more.
Yet, here, it is. Now having started this off negative, make no mistake: this is a good rum! It has everything that the El Dorado 12 does, but its a bit smoother, and with all the flavors more integrated together instead of having individual notes hit you one at a time. If you're not paying attention, it'll comes to you as a quite monotone drawl instead of a stream of brilliant whispers. Mind you, I personally prefer the rums that shout so loud you can hear coming from three blocks away, but I can appreciate what this one is doing! Man those metaphors got away from me...
Taste 7,8/10. Little sweetness somehow balance but no special character. Also finish with little whisky taste and some burn. The best of this drink is the aroma.
Got a taste of this while hanging out in a bar in the Caribbean. I took a bottle home with me—and the flavours followed. Excellent taste for sipping.
