El Dorado 12-Year Rum is composed of a blend of aged rums, all at least 12 years old. The rums are distilled using a combination of stills including double wooden pot stills and are aged in bourbon oak casks.
Demerara Distillers of Guyana produces El Dorado 12-year rum and is the country's last remaining distillery, with origins tracing back to 1670. The name ""El Dorado"" references the legendary city of gold that is said to be in the country's Rupununi region.
especially in an old fashioned. This is good. They story is great. Wooden stills are the greatest. This could be better but it’s towards the top of my list and some of the best not made in Barbados.
drink neat or on the rocks
This is one of the nicest rums you can get - at £30 it's a bargain.
Price is not indicative of quality and this rum from this small island proves it.
If you use this in a punch, like my sister did, you need a stern talking too.
Smooth, lots of flavour and no head freeze hit - brilliant!
I had this, the same time as Diplomatico Reserva. This was good, but not on the same level of complexity as the DR. It still had a slight burn to it, which I wouldn't expect with a rum over $30. I still enjoyed it though and would probably get it again, if it was available here.
This is my first Demerara rum, and I'm glad I started here! I would characterize it as intensely flavorful and aromatic. A fresh pour exhibits an explosion of scent, taking a few minutes to settle down. Afterward, a unique (to my taste) combination of fruit/candy sweetness and cigar-box duskiness. The palette and finish, though, are almost entirely candy but with the wonderful complexities of 12 years of aging. A llllllooooonnnnnnggggg finish on this one, similar to the Ron Abuelo line.
At just over $20 in my area, a superb value for those who enjoy a sweetly-flavorul sipping rum.
I paid $20 less than my Flor de Cana 18 YO, and it's almost as good. A complex taste build on demerara sugar cane, full body and long, smooth finish. Excellent sipper! You just can't beat the value.
Only recently tried this rum. It is now my favorite rum. If you are looking for a nice sipping rum that won't break the bank then you have found it. This rum is smooth fruity like fruit cake with no alcohol bite what so ever. Just writing this review makes me want to have a snifter of it.
Comme l'El Dorado 15, ce rhum du Guyana n'est pas à mon goût. Avec celui-ci et quelques autres, mon désamours des rhums de type anglais se confirme.
comes out good in cuba libre but also it is a very nice sipper.
It's a rum that should be always in your rum cabinet.
Meilleur rapport qualité-prix pour mixer ou boire sec.
The best value to mix or straight
Very nice rum
Fantastic colour and flavour. For the price it is superior over any other in its price range. On the rocks or mixed with cola it is satisfying.
You can drink it on the rocks, straight up, even with Pepsi! All the possibilities works cuz it's an amazing rum!
Really liked this rum but prefer the Flor De Cana (12 or 18)
A good rum. Good enough to have straight, not too pricey either.
Darl Caramel colour, chocolate and vanilla tones with a spicy feel and sweet enduring aftertaste, a very pleasant experience.
A truly superb choice, must have in your cellar !!!!
Very nice color nice aroma good for sipping
Another great choice for a good cigar almost like the Zacapa but bit different .. Lot of fruits caramel and spicy at the end with great and long aftertaste ... Worth to try ..
This rum smells great but is a a bit dry for my liking.
Best quality for the money.
Can be used in really anything, I love the sweetness and spices.
Buy it, own it, drink it, share it...
great colour, great taste, great aroma...
That this line of rums are so popular; because they're extraordinarily good. A great demerara rum only bettered by it's older siblings. A rum that is a 'must have at all times' rum.
