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 dark thick liquor with a sweet taste and strong in alcohol. The age really comes through and is a really good drink.

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...

But I prefer El Dorado 12-year, which in my opinion is a little sweeter, and much easier to drink.

Taste 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.

Excellent rum. Light and clean all around. Vanilla and floral notes.

Výrazně sladší,než 12yo. Chuťově vyvážený. Stojí za ochutnání.

This is good rum, but the 12 year is better IMHO. If you want the best bang for your buck pick up the 12 year old.

Very lush. A little pepper morphed into a deep rich mouth feel. A lot going on here. Tried it neat and with a drop of water. Both ways worked well.

rozhodoval jsem se zda dát 9 nebo 8. nakonec zvítězila 8čka, ale je hodně vysoká.
překvapení po mém zklamání z 12tky.
sušené ovoce, ostřejší chuť, ale vyvážená sladkost
jantarová barva

As much as I like the Diplomatico, I think I prefer the 15 year El Dorado. The taste has only a mild sweetness with a wonderful spicy finish. It lies lately on the tongue but has a warm silkiness about it as it goes down. This is an excellent Rum for the novice or connoisseur.
