Honestly flavours cannot comprehend how good of a rum this is ... El Dorado stands for liquid gold and this is the holy grail ... I would own a 1000 bottles if I could
Opening this bottle was an experience.
Nose: lots of fruit and spices - keep smelling and new things appear.
In the glass: beautiful brown deep color and looks thick.
Taste: Vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, raisins and more. Very long aftertaste.
My rating is based on the experience. It would have been lower if I had to take the price into considerations.
Expensive as this is, I only tasted a sample. So didn't have the option for 2nd or 3rd test.
Nose: Caramel, Vanilla, Burnt Sugar, and spices.. There are so many others you wouldn't believe it.. It just changes and varies all the time.
In the glass: Its extremely 'caramelly', beautiful color and fat body.
Taste: Sweet opening that gracefully leads you into, notes of caramel, port?, vanilla, raisins and a long long long aftertaste of dried fruits and maybe even some tobacco? Slight aftertaste of oak and some dryness to round it of.
A very nice experience, and overall very very easy drinkable, but with many different aspects. Not a rum that does well for sample-tasting. I will look forward to my next meeting with this where im sure I will find new impressions. Again and again and again..
The price tag makes me remove 1 rating.
This is by far, the smoothest rum I have ever tasted. It has an amazingly long aftertaste, a nicely balanced sweetness, and a great depth of flavor. It is however, crazy expensive.
Expensive, golden spirit. The nose is teaming with liquorice, molasse, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla and oaky barrel notes. The fat demerara palette is wonderfull. It offers enormous complexity and unrivaled smoothness. I find notes of sweet burnt banana, dates, toffee, tobaco and oak. As with some other primium rums, I have a slightly hard time isolating all the notes. It's one of those rums, that possess great complexity, but is still extremely drinkable. The aftertaste goes on forever, and actually builds up over a few minuts, with lovely warm, sweet, tingling baking spices, but also added sugar. There's no doubt that it's tasty, but also no doubt the the rum is overpriced. Equally great expiriences can be had for less money, and less or no added sugar would be very welcome here. But if you are into rum big time, you should still try this once.
This is smooth & well aged, without being very oaky or bitter. Taste profile is sophisticated with exotic fruits, chocolate, peper, vanilla, honey, butter, apricots and raisins. Compared to all other El Dorados this is the sweetest. Over all extreamly overpriced, i am glad that try this but too much money for a very good drink. In comparison El Dorado 21 has a bit acid aftertaste (because of strong cognac aging) and not as mild as 25. If the cost of El Dorado 25 was about 120 to 140 euro would be fair.
I really enjoyed this bottle, the presentation is beautiful, the color is attractive, the aromas and the taste are really something very well done. I would like to be able to compare it with the other bottles of its type.
