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.

Voici un rhum d'une très grande qualité, qui m'a vraiment enthousiasmé! Le nez promet des arômes que la bouche confirme: une délicieuse douceur vanillée, des notes de noix, de dates et de fruits secs. La longueur en bouche est très bonne, laissant au palais tout le temps d'apprécier la complexité des arômes délivrés. C'est vraiment l'exemple-type de rhum vieux parfaitement équilibré et balancé! Une réussite totale!

I am relatively new to higher quality rums but this one blew all my other forays out of the water. I would attempt to describe it but my palate is still somewhat lacking.

It has the distictive ED fingerprint with molasse sweetness, citrus undertones, leathery tobacco notes and robust body. It's very smooth but distinguises it self from the ED 12 and 21 with a long charred oak, almost whiskey like afterburn. Very interesting rum.

I've just received a mini bottle of this rum from RumRatings, so that I had the chance of tasting it: I liked it indeed :) !

The colour is a copper red gold.
The aroma has notes of caramel and banana. There are some notes of wood also but fairly discreet.
Oak flavors are predominant on the palate but the rum remain sweet and very pleasant.
Edit April 25, 2014: Now that I've been able to compare this rum with its older brother 21 yo, I can say that this rum is my favorite one. Note raised to 10.

Tmavá barva, výrazná vůně - švestky, koření, ořechy. Chuť švestek a ořechů. Dlouhý a plný finiš.

ED15 is hands down my favorite daily drinker. It is a very rare day that you can't find a bottle of this in my cabinet. I prefer to sip it over a single ice cube but my wife who is not a fan of rum loves it mixed with a little coke. I've used this in a couple different marinades and found it goes great with grilled fruit.

There are hints of coffee but its not overwhelming which i love as a non coffee drinker. It also has nice hits of allspice and candied orange peel.

Seriously good rum. This was my 2nd choice when my plantation 20th anniversary was sold out. I didn’t expect to get more of what I like the plantation for. Now I drank the whole bottle and don’t have a review 🤪

Don’t taint this liquid elixir with anything other than ice. Nice clean finish. Brings to mind sweet molasses. Light burn.
