El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum

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.

Starts with quite a dry nose. Good mix of spice and buttery smoothness with a lingering woodsy finish that coats the mouth. Not as buttery as the 20 year, which is a good thing. Seems to be missing a slight complexity that would make this a truly fantastic rum.

This, my friends, is Rum. Not fussy, not overworked, just delicious. I take it neat.

This was the first aged rum I ever laid my lips on, it was dry, spicy and slightly sweet. The richness of the demerara sugar gave this rum a great depth that many rums can't hold up to these days. No wonder it's one on the top rums in the world.

With a few ice cubes and marry them for about 10 minutes. On the side of a hot tub...dreamscape!!

this rum is a bit less sweeter and also drier than his younger 12 years old brother. Not exactly my kind of tasting profile but if you want to sip something "matured" then I would choose this one.

The first hit on the front side is a little harsh, a strong alcohol bite. The finish is smooth with hints of vanilla and a strong molasses lingering flavor.

Le nez est expressif, plutôt boisé avec des pointes d'amande et de poivre. La bouche est plus suave, plus ronde, mais aussi plus complexe. Le boisé est toujours présent, accompagné de vanille, et de cacao. Puis viennent des arômes de fûts passés à la flamme et de tabac et le final est épicé.

This demerara rum is smooth and not to sweet for a molasse rum. A sure value !

Drier than 12 and slightly less flavor, but still one of the best sippers out there. A bit pricey only when compared to other ED products, but much better value than Zacapa or Mount Gay.

A great rum - the barmaid where I get has it spot on and refuses to serve you mixer with it.

Absolutely fantastic rum, just don't ruin the taste with mixer or ice

It'll change the way you think about rum. I can't imagine pouring Coke in it, though, I don't even want an ice cube watering it down...

Superb rum. Very different from the 12 el dorado rum.

Should be drink straight up, anything else would be a waste.

Great flavours, makes a killer old fashioned. Not as good as the 12

Posted over 7 years ago by James Wall from United Kingdom with 10 ratings

the only thing better is the 12 year old!
