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.

the 12 is tasty but this is much smoother. Enjoyed sipping with whiskey stones. Slight aromas of stone fruits and burnt sugars. Alcohol warming lingers and finishes rather sweet.

Spicy and sweet. Best rum I've had in this price range. Incredibly smooth and balanced in flavors. No single flavor overpowered the rest. I always make sure to have this one on hand.

This one has a thick molasses/caramel nose right out of the gate. You can tell this one is going to be a good Demerara right away.

Flavor is rich cocoa, brown sugar notes. smooth afterburn, nothing too harsh.

A deep color, yet not as dark as some decent and cheaper Demeraras.

I've bought this one at least twice now, it makes a good rich flavoured painkiller. (pussers don't be trying to sue me..)

This one is a bit pricier than I'd like it to be, but it's still a good choice if you are looking for a quality Demerara.

A quite good rum. Nice flavour. Not to smooth. Pleasent aroma. Enjoyable.

To try ED rums cause of my father's word, but finally decided to give then a try. First was the 15 special reserve, this is easily one of my fave sipping rums now. So easy in the throat hardly any burn , very similar to Papa's Pilar which is fantastic.

Nose is very sweet , hints of dark fruits like raisins and maybe some chocolate

If you let it breathe for about 15 minutes you will be impressed.

Much better option than their 12 year this is worth the money for a nice glass neat or on a single cube.

Starší bratr rumu El Dorado 12, zřejmě ale jinak blendovaný a tak chuťově odlišný. Při srovnání je méně sladký, trošku dřevitější, dozvuk jemnější, celkově uhlazenější, více vyzrálý a vyvážený. Jelikož mám raději sladší rumy, přikláním se spíše k dvanáctiletému El Doradu, jinak je to ale vynikající rum.

I purchased this in a London bar, unaware of the cost I was about to be hit with. Whilst the mood was dampened, this rum lifted me to great joy. Fruit, vanilla, sugar amalgamated to give a stunning smooth experience.

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.
