El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum

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.

It's great for the price. I find that letting this breath in the glass will help increase flavor notes and lower alcohol-y smell. It's not a pour and sip.

Lush, rich, complex, delicious. On the sweet side with dried fruit, brown sugar, chocolate, oranges, oak, some spiciness and much much more... This should appeal to everybody, there is no harshness, just pure pleasure.
EDIT: To reach this level of softness, El Dorado have added a record-setting 35g of sugar per litre. Will need a long time to figure out how I feel about this.

Gorgeous rum plenty of taste to it smooth fruity a rich type of fruitiness to it. A lot of the smoothness of this rum is down to the added sugar which will also account for the sweetness of this rum.

The only reason this one didn't get a ten is because I'm new to rum tasting and I believe there's always something better out there. Near perfection is this rum. Wonderfully balanced, slightly sweet, smooth and mellow. Almost non-existent burn going down. Great neat or with a small ice cube, which I prefer. This is my favorite to date.

Smager godt og følger fin tråden fra 12'eren. Måske lige så nem at gå til som 12'eren.
Et genkøb.

Being a "Certified El Dorado Connoseur" (hehe), I'm perhaps a bit biased.
But this 15 yrs rum is plain awesome!
I actually found the 21 year to be a bit too harsh in comparison.

I've not tried the 25 (rare) rum from El Dorado, but from what I've heard that one might be worth a 10.

This one is easily recommended to everyone!

They don't sell this in Michigan so I had to order it online. It is a smooth. sweet rum. A little bit of a bite in the aftertaste, but a nice sipping rum.

A very good rum great straight up, maybe a drop of water to bring some other flavors.

A classic aged rum without being to expensive, bright welcoming colour and nose with a pleasant after taste, you feel it all the down, not to be rushed but allowed to excite your taste buds, sipped over a little ice is best, will work well in a mix and is always best drunk with friends.
