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.

I like this rum equally with the 12 year old they are great rums. However I do wonder if they have added caramel/sugar added post distilling.

Foreground sweet notes of the 12 are reduced and a smokier more complex set of flavours come forward, with liquorice and tobacco.

Great flavours, makes a killer old fashioned. Not as good as the 12

Superb rum. Very different from the 12 el dorado rum.

Should be drink straight up, anything else would be a waste.

It'll change the way you think about rum. I can't imagine pouring Coke in it, though, I don't even want an ice cube watering it down...

This is what I serve first to friends who haven't experienced 'good rum.' It sets a high bar and rarely fails to please. Many will find it slightly on the sweet side, but not as much as, say Diplomatico. The flavor is highly complex and alluring.

From a value point of view, at about $40 USD/bottle, I don't think you can do better. Focusing on the El Dorado line, the slightly less expensive 12 year bottle isn't as good as the even-less expensive 8year, so it's skippable. The more expensive 21-year bottle is noticeably smoother but questionably more enjoyable to drink. My cabinet always includes a bottle of ED8 for 'everyday' rum, 15 for entertaining, and EHP for special occasions.

Absolutely fantastic rum, just don't ruin the taste with mixer or ice
