More complexity and definitely a better sipper than the previous 12 year expression.
Caramel and toffee notes are present.

Without so much sugar, this new version really lets the production shine through.
We get more fruit and smoke, plus that lovely dry oaky finish.
Glad that the new GI regulations seem to be improving quality!

God klassisk Guyana rom, med en lidt bitter eftersmag. Meget tæt på et 8 tal.

Had 6cl of it after a better dinner at a local restaurant.
It’s long time ago since I tasted the old 12yo with 35gpl sugar, but I’m pretty sure I like this new one with 6gpl sugar better.
The aroma is oaky, spicy, pleasant and balanced with some sweetness.
In mouth and on palate it’s still spicy and I recognize toffee, raisins, prunes, caramel and nutmeg.
The finish is medium long and the wood comes back plus some vanilla.
Overall an pleasant well balanced rum with a certain complexity.

this is the new 2020 edition of the el dorado 12 yo with much less sugar added (approx. 6g/lit.) to meet the new EU regulations. and i guess it‘s now better then it was before, it‘s one of my favourite ones and it‘s a no brainer as it‘s quite cheap. really nice and smooth rum

Exceptionally smooth mouth and throat feel with a nice warming finish. Not tons of complexity, but carmel, raisin, and oak come through nicely for me. Perfect sweetness throughout. A good go-to neat sipper.

I tried this rum in a trendy fusion restaurant in Las Vegas. I remember thinking how smooth it was for rum from the French part of the Carribean - which I often find a little harsh and light bodied for my taste.

When I returned home, I was delighted to find this rum in one of my local stores and brought home a bottle. When I tried it at home, it had that familiar light body and lack of smoothness I identify with "rhums". As I pondered, I remembered that the glass in Las Vegas came after a glass of tequila...

So, all in all, pretty good flavor, not that smooth and flavors not so complex, unless you have a glass of tequila first.

Burns a bit. Nice colour. Nice taste. Somewhere in the middle

woody rum and almost nothing else, i give a nice 5, better than the older version (it was a 3)
from the 3 new el dorados (12,15 and 21) only the 15 is a solid sipper ...

Compared to the previous El Dorado 12 this is phenomenal. I was kind of concerned that with very little added sugar it might have lost what I loved in this fine rum but it's even better. I give this a solid 8, and in its price range a 10. Pick up a bottle if you haven't tried it.
