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.

Richer in taste than the already quite good 12 years old El Dorado, the pricier 15 years old is in a class of its own as the sipping rum of choice. This rum has recently become my reference! Although there is a vast number of rums that I don't know ...yet!

The El Dorado 15y is a decent sipping rum, It's well balanced, not to sweet nor to dry. If you are looking for a nice and fair priced demerara rum you'll be very happy with this one. But if you're looking for a "special" rum giving the extra "kick" you'll need to take ED 21y or 25y. Don't get me wrong: I'd take a sip of ED 15y no questions asked, but there are more thrilling competitors on the market -even- at similar prices.

Anyway: Thx RumRatings for my mini Eldorado 15y bottle! :)

Sweet, full of taste, dark amber colour, weak in smell

This is the best Demerara rum I have tasted to date. Very rich yet not sickly full of flavour and a rare rum which I can actually sip.

Great stuff

Perfect for drinking on the rocks. Strong start with a full flavorful middle. Not too much linger, so it keeps you wanting more. A bit of a one-note, but well-balanced. So glad I got to try a glass.

My favorite store ordered this for me. I was in Guyana years ago and had the pleasure of tasting all their rums at that time, the 1960's. Some very good, some so so. This 15 year has a sharp after burn when swallowed. Since I only enjoy sipping rums, the burn was surprising. In it's defense, it is delicious cut with two fingers of water and lime twist. But why pay the 50.00 price and not enjoy it straight up. Give it 7.

And that makes sense, doesn't it? Less sweet than the 12 and stronger with the wood.

Delicious but I prefer the 12

Great rum I can't imagine not being part of my collection. It's a bit expensive for me but worth it when I want a treat.
