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
This rum is nice the drink by itself no mixers. It has a sugary taste and great aroma. The color is a nice dark colored. There is no bitterness to the taste and goes down nice. I was very happy to see them sell it here in Florida. Most of the people I share it with loves it.
De el dorado-rums vind ik allen lekker im drinken. De 15 year is uiteraard een groter genot om drinken dan de 12 year. Een niet te complexe rum en aan te raden aan velen.
Tastes slightly smoky, hints of tobacco and barrique.
Tasted this one as part of a rum tasting event, would need a few sips more for a more detailed comment.
Its sweet but not as much as a elixir. Never tried anything with that barely noticeable alcohol presence. Stunning. You have to be carefull to not drink the bottle at once. Fruity, sweety, balanced, mild. Pure sipping pleasure.
Matured in bourbon barrels.

Outstanding Rum, the Best of the 12-15-21 El Dorado Serie.....
I like the bottle and of course what's inside, it is an excellent rum with complexity and character. It's one of the best I have had and I really recommend this rum to everybody who likes rum.
On the nose after opening the bottle you can smell strong alcoholic note, but its fades very quickly and turns to vanilla, spiciness and oakiness. But it domain is the fruity sweetness and then you can smell cacao, coconut and marzipan aroma.
On the palate it is spicy with fruit sweetness and spiciness and oak from the cask.
The finish is middle long with spice and oak, but very pleasant.
Overall this rum well balanced pleasant to smell and sip. This is a very good buy for beginners and also for experienced rum drinkers. Really worth the money and I personally love it.
I started with the good 12 year old. This quickly led me to tasting the 15 year old which is my rum of choice for a couple of months now. First sips are quite strong because of 43% alcohol but with this rum it never stops at one glass.
Tried this today and well it is very different from the 12 year. First of all I found it less sweet, although the test results says they have almost the same amount of added sugar. Then the smell of this one and the first sip are something that you can't forget after you have tasted it. It is really fruity, and of course have vanilla and orange peel. A must try.
