Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Spicy and cigarlike (not in bad way) taste, with kind of a hint of cherry. Alcohol smell and taste a bit harsh. Still a good an original product.
Found this new El Dorado special edition in my local store. I’ve never been a big fan of El Dorado rum but I like to try anything special edition. Their website doesn’t list this one. Label says that it is a blend of 3 stills with different characteristics and was distilled in 2007. The aroma isn’t very inviting, and has almost a chemical smell at first but settled down after sitting. The lighter rum that is blended in this is evident. It is not over sweet and has a mild flavor. Like my other experiences with this brand the initial alcohol rush is a bit much and overbearing. I let this sit for 15 minutes and a little more complexity came through and a little less alcohol harshness. Overall not bad and might be a good choice for people who like this brand.
