I use this in part in every rum based mixed drink I make (Mai Tais, Zombies, rum swizzles, Gun Club punch, Navy Grog, Siboney, Jet Pilot). It is reasonably priced and provides the Guyana smoke essence. This rum adds a unique taste in all mixed rum tiki cocktails. It is a staple. I use it daily in mixed tiki cocktails!

I was pleasantly surprised with this 2yo. Not that refined, raisin and caramel taste. I like it with coke.
Paid €8.70 for 70cl, I think this is the best tasting cheap rum i have tried so far.
Because of the low price I would give a 9/10 but overall...
6.5/10

You've had the El Dorado 5? 8? 12? 15? 21? Well, this is El Dorado 2. Yep, 2 years old, and pretty raw. There's some molasses and toffee, but the mouth feel is really thin and watery, and the alcohol is distracting. It's very inexpensive, as it should be. I drink it neat and not often, but I can imagine it doing okay in mixed drinks. For a few dollars more you can get ED 8 and live a happier life.

My every day mixing rum. Gose well with any recipe,anytime. El dorado is always a sure shot. I give it an extra point because of the price.

Det finns toner och aromer av vanilj och kola, men det känns att den är kortvarigt lagrad. Funkar dock fint med Cola.

Good to drink after dinner or even with vanilla ice cream, very strong coffee notes. Not a remarcable sipping rum but interesting nonetheless!

This rum steers clear of the fake vanilla and the overly sweet formulations that many competitors seem to be putting out. This rum tastes like drinking dark brown sugar but with a very pleasant and round notes and little aftertaste. A perfect companion for end of day drink by the fireplace. For the price, it’s a contender!

But no more. Drink straight if you are out of anything else

A deep mahogany colour in a simple looking bottle has a strong molasses nose. The flavour is strong with raisins, caramel, smoke and molasses. There is only a mild burn for a two year rum but it is a lighter ABV. Can be sipped but makes a good mixed drink with strong flavour. A friend picked this up in Quebec for only $24.
