Lambs Amber is my usual base mixing rum for rum and soda drinks. Most of my friends who are Cuba Libre drinkers are also Lambs Amber fans. Not being a fan of this drink myself I can't compare how E.D. 8 enhances the drink. I do however like it in a nice rum cocktail. For the price this is certainly a step up from a Lambs or Captain Morgan.
A complex balanced and heavy bodied flavourful mixing rum.
Very enjoyable the 15 Year Old lover's mixer.......try the 5 Year Old as a mixer if you prefer the 12 Year Old.
this has a bit too much alcohol on the throat to drink neat.... However it makes an awesome rum old fashioned. Definitely worth having an ever-present bottle on the shelf
El dorado 8 is een prima rum om puur te drinken. Een complexe smaak, banaan, tabak en fruit.
Kon wel eens de beste El Dorado zijn. Met 'maar' 8-15 gr/L suiker.
This is the first rum that I have enjoyed sipping, slightly sweet with nice caramel taste and a smooth after taste. Too nice to add anything else.
Entry level sipper and superb in a rum cocktail. Beats all the other rums in this bracket
For the price excellent I enjoyed it on the rocks as a sipper and with coke.... For a little extra cash though might as well man up and buy the 12
I find this rum to stand in between the 5 yo and the 12 yo. The 15g/L added sugar takes down my rating.
Although this one can be sipped, I would recommend it for drinks. But you get quite a good rum compared to the price.
A bit of a bite at the first sip, but very smooth finish. Has a whiskey vibe to it, likely due to the 8 year cask aging. I was initially surprised to see that it is made in Guyana, as you don't normally associate Guyana with rum. Would definitely recommend this either on the rocks.
A beautifull rum, hugh step from the 5yrs old too light for me. I like the structure and the balance...
A every day rum...
