Much better than actual liquid gold would be. Works with whatever.

Well rounded and smooth. It is a great sipping rum. There is a good amount of sugar, but not overwhelming. Gentle oaky and nutty flavours.

This is a very nice Demerara rum. I've only ever tried the 5 year old of the El Dorado brand previously. This is a massive improvement, and at least where I live, a fantastic price for a 12 year old bottle. However, it doesn't hold a candle to Lemon Hart. I know that's a bit of an unfair comparison because of the proof difference, but I can't help making the comparison. However, I will not be sad reaching for this bottle.

This rum is has a strong smokey/woody taste but goes down so smooth! It lingers a bit in your mouth. It is not overly sweet but it has a distinct taste that it stands on its own.

I tasted the 15y as well but I bought this one instead since you get value for money on this one in my opinion.

There's something about this one.. The color, the heat, the flavor, the oh my goodness, I'm on vacation kinda taste... and it's just Tuesday, it's just you, it's just June, but it's just that good...

Je ne veux pas avoir à rédiger une critique pour chaque rhum que j’essaye. Je pense que le système de notation est suffisant pour mes besoins, donc en postant en français, la plupart des gens l'ignoreront de toute façon.

This is a delicious sipping rum, and for the price is much better than its peers.

Smooth, rich, and just complex enough to place this above so many others in the same price class. No need for added sugars to cover up a lesser product like some of the mediocre, solera-aged products in the market; it stands on its own as a fine, aged rum. Stellar.
