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
El Dorado 15 year has a good flavor profile but quite a strong after burn. The most surprising fact to me was the fact that 12 year is smoother than this 15 year old rum. Best memory is from the Demerara Distilleries between Georgetown and Cheddi Jagan Airport in Guyana when I visited their rum distillery and enjoyed their entire line up in its own surroundings.
Extremely smooth & the perfect amount of sweetness. May be my favorite sipper in my bar. At $44, it’s well worth the price to me.
The 15 year old isn’t as sweet as 12 year old one. It’s a quite complex rum. It’s very well balanced and you can taste nuts, fruit and some vanilla.
In my opinion it’s a rum that set some kind of standard which you always can go back to when you rate rum. If you feel that a rum is better than the “15” it’s always worth buying.
Čekal jsem od 15 leté verze El Dorada víc, není špatný, ale já osobně dávám přednost mladšímu bratříčkovi 12y, který je navíc levnější. První přičichnutí jsem si říkal, že mi nalili koňak. Vůně nebyla špatná, spíš jsem ji vůbec nečekal. Do chutě se vůně nepromítla. Na 43% musím napsat jemná, sladší ale málo výrazná oproti aroma. To mně asi zklamalo nejvíc.
Although it has its sweetness it is not overwhelmingly sticky sweet like the Diplomatico reserve. That's because this is a mature liquid "crafted from 15 to 25 year old rums" (Diplomatico reserve is a blend of rums some of which are aged up to 12 years - that does not make it a 12 year old rum). El Dorado SR 15's long years in oak casks give it a nice variety of flavors. It's at a very attractive price point for the quality of liquid.
The bottle looks really nice and comes with a nice packaging. The smell is quite strong, sweet and fruity. After letting it breath for 15 minutes the taste becomes quite sweet, spicy and it lasts in mouth almost forever. I really enjoy drinking this rum. This rum is worth its price.
Cela faisait longtemps que je voulais goûter les rhums Demerara
C'est chose faite avec ce 15 ans d'âge
Au nez on sent le caramel et la vanille. on pressent une certaine douceur.
En bouche, les arômes se confirment en allant sur le toffee.
Belle longueur en bouche qui permet de conserver les goûts et arômes longtemps
Sur les conseils d’un site internet, j’ai acheté ce rhum et j’en suis super satisfait. Du coup j’ai voulu goûter le 21, il est au top également
As tasty as liquid gets, not just rum, I would be very surprised if there was a better tasting liquid on the planet.
It has to get marked down cos of all the added sugar, but I’ll almost allow it for something that tastes this nice.
