El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum

El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year

Guyana | Aged | 43.0% ABV

El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum is crafted from 15 to 25 year old rums that are then blended and married together in bourbon oak casks. Prior to blending the original batches are distilled using 4 unique stills - the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills, the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, and the Versailles single wooden pot still.

The bottle of El Dorado Special Reserve 15-year was inspired by the the old hand-blown flasks used by sugar planters on the banks of the Demerara river.

Pretty pleasant drink with faint smokiness, vanilla and spice. A little overpriced, but still very drinkable

New to rum, but the smell of this is amazing. At first I thought it was banana. As I’m going through the bottle, I am tasting the charred barrel, caramel, even cherry, and other flavors. Taste is good, but the smell is divine. What could be better than this?

Be careful of this little one.... You might empty the bottle faster than expected. Sipped neat, strong alcohol and is mildly unpleasant to start - let it breathe and the alcohol subsides just a little but honestly not enough to be pleasant. Oak and vanilla begin to appear but for me the improvement is to minimal to want to sip this neat. Water softens the initial waft but still not pleasant. Mixed with coke - now this is another match made in heaven. Flavours of oak, vanilla and sugarcane dominate. This is wonderful and I can see it becoming another Mt Gay regular added to the "regulars" list of easy dinking rums. It lacks the additional complexity of the XO but it is a younger sibling. I have scored this an 8 because its just damn wonderful as a mixed rum and my palate clearly resonates with the Bajan and Mt Gay rum style but disappointed with my inability to appreciate it neat which would elevate this to a 9. Highly recommend this to all.

Rum made right. Good for day to day sips neat or a couple drops of water.

This rum is good. Very good. It’s smooth and easy. My only knock on it is after trying funky Jamaican rums it’s almost too easy to drink. It’s easily accessible in NC liquor stores which is a huge plus.

Nose is smooth, slightly sweet and vanilla. Palate is strong vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

Great rum, especially as an entry sipper

Zapach: Kwiatowy, Karmel, dębina, melasa, rodzynki, migdały

Smak: Delikatnie słodki, miodowo, korzenny oraz pieprzny.

Średni stosunek ceny do jakości. To już inny trunek niż wcześniejszy black barrel. Jest wyraźnie mniej aromatyczny oraz czuć w nim mniej ukryty alkohol niestety jest ostrzejszy niż poprzednia wersja.

Ocena 72/100

Recenzie na rumy tejto značky sú dosť pozitívne, takže keď lokálny predajca ponúkol 30% zľavu, nezaváhal som. Prvý testujem Black Barrel, XO zatiaľ čaká na polici. Zaujímavá ploská fľaša, rum má peknú oranžovkastú farbu. Vôňa je krásne mohutná, so silne karamelovým buketom, cítiť aj med a snáď aj nejaké prezreté ovocie. Napriek vyššej voltáži (43%) je chuť až nečakane jemná, drink je suchší, ako som čakal, ale nemám s tým problém, práve naopak. Tu už značne dominuje dub mierne podmáznutý vanilkou, trochu ho to ťahá k whiskey, no vo veľmi príjemných medziach. Paleta tónov je pomerne úzka, presne takto mám rum rád - na nič sa nehrá, žiadne zbytočné kudrlinky, žiadneho správneho rumana nemôže uraziť. Rating silných 7, minimálne pre tú parádnu jemnosť. Od vyššieho levelu ho delí asi len vyššia cena (bez zľavy) a možno niečo, čím by vybočoval z radu. Toto bez debaty nie je posledná fľaša, ktorú som obstaral.

Astringent with a strong alcohol bite. Charred wood is quite prominent. Long woody finish.

Really tasty, no after effects. Found it in the Caribbean.

Mount Gay Black Double Cask is a traditional rum from the island of Barbados.
It’s a mix of rums from pot stills and old rums distilled in a column still.
The whole is refined in American oak barrels which previously contained bourbon and which were deeply burned in order to allow the wood to reveal its aromas.
The whole process delivers a rum that is both balanced and highly flavored. In the mouth we can smell the vanilla caramel toffee and the woody aromas. It is a very elegant rum!!!
Better than the first Black Barrel.
