Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Compared to the ED Versailles 2006, the nose is less generous, with orange, some banana, a faint briny note, and something a touch more volatile, like a paste wax for fine furniture. The palate is also more reserved, with prominent oaky wood, tar, tannic apple skin, and a peppery heat that sits on the tip of your tongue. The nose and palate are bone dry. Part of the interest in sipping this rum is the history and association of the PM still. It would not be my go to rum on a typical occasion but fascinating to try as a sipper by oneself. You need time and solitude to savour and think about this one.
Goûter seulement une fois, rhum de dégustation très sec. Il va falloir que je lui goûte une autre fois avec peut-être une glace
This is a very rich, aggressive, complex, spicy and oaky rum that my bourbon loving friends think is my best rum (I don't). I personally think the rum tries too hard. You can definitely taste leather, oaky smoke, pepper, coffee beans with hints of anise and orange peel. The finish is suprisingly smooth,
This is my go to rum when I only want 1 glass on a Thursday night (2 glasses will = heartburn), however at its price, when the bottle empty I will not replace it. Rum preference is personal and as it's the most unique rum I've every had, I would give it a try, but if you're not a fan of a spicy, bitter and oaky rum, stay away.
($65CAD) This one out of the three 2006 releases smells the most of fruit. Cherries specifically. It reminds me of Abuelo 12 quite a bit. That cherry is upfront on the pallet and is quickly overtaken by tobacco and oak to create a very distinct El Dorado tasting note that is familiar from the 12, 15 and 21. It's quite the rum on it's own and is easily worth a try, especially if you enjoy El Dorado like I do!
Really dry from an El Dorado rum no over the top added sugar either. On the nose a porty apple style nose. On the first vsip there is brown sugar plum blackberry and apple notes with a slight citrus tang there is a strong notes this has been aged in Port barrels but I like it
This rum is the very dry and unusual for El Dorado. Reminds me more of a Hampden Estate Jamaican rum. Light golden brown I don’t love it and don’t hate it just something unique and unusual.
