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.
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...
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.
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...
