I use this in part in every rum based mixed drink I make (Mai Tais, Zombies, rum swizzles, Gun Club punch, Navy Grog, Siboney, Jet Pilot). It is reasonably priced and provides the Guyana smoke essence. This rum adds a unique taste in all mixed rum tiki cocktails. It is a staple. I use it daily in mixed tiki cocktails!

I was pleasantly surprised with this 2yo. Not that refined, raisin and caramel taste. I like it with coke.
Paid €8.70 for 70cl, I think this is the best tasting cheap rum i have tried so far.
Because of the low price I would give a 9/10 but overall...
6.5/10

My every day mixing rum. Gose well with any recipe,anytime. El dorado is always a sure shot. I give it an extra point because of the price.

Arrgh, you heard correct! I says this rum be far too young to enjoy! She smells sweet and all, with fine bits of caramel, but that be where the fascination ends. She be tarted up with color that not be natural and a bizarre flavor that reeks of burned raisins, chocolate, and dead fish at low tide. Aye, there be a bit of burn, and that be fine for ANY alcohol, but not this one, maties! Not for sippin', not for anythin' but cleanin' sword wounds. There be so many rums from El Dorado that be truly amazing. What son of biscuit eater made the call to put THIS in a bottle?

Ne jamais jugé un livre a ça couverture
Ce dicton est une belle métaphore pour se rum qui a l'air un peu banal a première vue
Mais en vrais c'est un très bon demerara d'un bon brun assez foncé
Aux nez sucre brun légère vanille
Sa goûte bon ni top sucré ni trop épicé un peu boisé ça se boit bien et ça se mix bien avec tout il est très bien pour faire des rum arrangé

Enjoyed a bottle of El Dorado Original Dark 3y Rum on a sunny Saturday. Very well priced. Just okay bottle and label design. Dark mahogany color. Strong oak, raisins and caramel to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Definitely much better when mixed with your favorite soda.

Bought 4 different rums on way home and this one was suggested to make change for a mixing rum. Well...no great. Very much like bacardi gold. Will not purchase again.

Found a single remaining bottle of this in a strip mall liquor store for less than $20. A great everyday mixing rum, but not easily found.
