I like brown alcools since 40 years but not an off to invest too much. I tried almost all the brandys available in my province of Quebec in Canada and many affordables rhums. I buy 1 bottle each 2-3 weeks and most of the time I buy this one I tried many times other knowned affordable but less cheap brands in rhum and even if I appreciate it I always return to the eldorado dark buying often one even if I have an other one different to finish. Unlike others people that rated it for me it is a sipper I like its rough powerful aroma that confirms you that you have something in mouth. I am in Dominican Republica for winter months now and here the rhums are fine and very cheap but be sure that when I will be back to the north I will get an El Dorado soon even if I will have brung the best Dominicans rhums. An other excellent dark alcool that I like not costly is the St-Remy XO brandy. Cheers everybody !!!

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!

Taste really good for the price paid. Notes of molasses and brown sugar. Low price and largely available.

This is my favorite rum for mixing with cola. It's sweet and really adds a raisins flavor to the cola. Tried it as a sipper, but quickly added cola again. The price is very good too. So, not thinking about it as a sipper but only as a mixer, it's an 8/10.

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.

This is one of the first rums I started paying attention to. I had a Cuba Libre in a restaurant and was told it was made from this. After tasting from the bottle, I knew it was not the rum used in that drink. This is much heavier and sweeter with the burnt sugar taste. It has always been my wife's favorite. I have come along way over the last five years since trying to find that particular rum that was in that very tasty Cuba Libre. I'm glad I started this journey. This is my first review of many in the coming days/weeks/months/years.

Its a light (probably mostly column-still) rum. Definitely has that demerara style of darker, smokey molasses and brown sugar (evaporated caramel when left in the glass). Not as sweet as many dark rums (which I really like). Its well balanced, and really not bad for the $14 I paid. Can be surprisingly hard to find for such a cheap one...

Had previously purchased an El Dorado 8 yr and somewhat enjoyed the taste but while it was not nearly as sweet as the 12 or 15, I still found it too sweet for my palate. I purchased an El Dorado Dark (2 yr) and rather enjoyed the taste as it is much drier than the other ED offerings. I only drink my rum neat and never thought I would enjoy ED Dark but it is different than most rums I keep on hand and a nice and diversion from my drier rums. Pleasantly surprised 👍

Un ami est arrivé avec cette bouteille un soir. Je suis resté assez surpris par le goût et la texture malgré le prix (13$). Personnellement, je l'ai essayer avec du coke. Texture de melasse avec un peu de caramel. À essayer si vous ne voulez pas trop dépenser!

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
