Aged Rum Lovers Only

This rum I find as exceptional. Very bold strong rum and will run you about $100.00 US. You can drink with a cola and us fresh lime. Smooth just don’t over do it if you are not use to drinking rums. In the winter time it makes a great drink just poured into a glass and with a fine cigar. If you start with the early aged rum and move forward to the 21 year old that’s good. Dont go back to the 15 year or earlier. You will miss the 21 year old.

Got a bottle of this when I worked abroad. Saved it for special occasion as it wasn't cheap. It didn't meet my expectations. The cork was a bit flaky, I don't know if this affected the flavours. I prefer the 15 yo El Dorado.
I purchased this rum for my wife for Christmas in 2015. I was quite surprised to discover that she had also had a bottle as a gift for me as well. Hence the 21 year old twin reference. A friend of mine saw the picture I posted of the bottles and said "Every sailors dream, 21 year old twins". He is a rum lover as well as a sailor so he probably lived the dream. Having a 12 and 15 year old on my bar shelf it was inevitable that the comparison be made. In fact, I picked up a 8 year old to mix it up a bit. I did a sampling of all four and made it a blind sampling for my wife. The smoothness of the 21 stood out among the foursome. All were sampled on ice and neat.
