Easily consumable in a bind
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.
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 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 !!!
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.
Pleasant aroma, mild alcohol. The aftertaste is not that I liked. Honest 5-6 points, would not be surprised if someone appreciate above.
"It burns, its overpoweringly sweet then overtly bitter very quickly."
