El Dorado 21 is produced near the equator in Guyana by Demerara distillery. The final product is a blend of rums, aged between 21 and 25 years and crafted using 100% locally sourced Demerara sugar. Traditional tools are used in the distilling processes including three unique wooden stills. The rums rest until maturity in 45 gallon oak casks.
This was pretty good stuff. Not too sweet and not too dry. If I have to be honest, I think I prefer the 12 year expression more and it's considerably less expensive!
I actually prefer the El Dorado 15, less expensive, but way more interesting. This has a bit more alcohol taste and is dryer than the 15. Don't get me wrong it is a great rum. It has some complex flavors that you want to savor.
if you like sweet rums, but not too sweet, this is yours. the el dorado 21 seems to bee not so sweet. more leather, more smoke, more softness, more deep, more body. a great rum with a special wooden touch.
A perfect sweetness adds to the greatness of this rum. As with the other sted el dorado rums, this is Super delicious.
A richly flavored sipping rum with a bit of sweetness to round out the flavor. Not spicy, reminds me of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva but with less sweetness.
Surprisingly quite strong, dark alcoholic kick. but it starts with a nice well-balanced body. give it time to breathe.
Tento rum je velmi podobny svojmu mladsiemu 12y bratovi ktory stoji min. o polovicu menej. Chutov mi ide na burbon/whiskey
El Dorado 21 år er en fabelagtig rom med en duft, der både indeholder det let røgede tobaksagtige og det syrlige citrusagtige element, omend man samtidig fornemmer en dyb underliggende sødme.
Smagen er kraftig med masser af fad, og den præges indledende af den høje alc. pct. på 43. Dog virker den ikke sprittet eller skarp. Rommen er overraskende tør og de røgede, syrlige og søde smagsnoter udvikles langsomt, men hænger længe i ganen.
Duft og smag er i overensstemmelse med hinanden. Denne rom er perfekt til eftertænksomme aftener - er blevet fast inventar i skabet 👍
This was on my want list for a long time. Tastes wonderful but I might just prefer the 15 year. I got a bottle of this and every time I would drink it I would get really bad heartburn afterwards because it was so sweet and syrupy. I would definitely recommend though and will probably get another bottle at some point.
Denne Rom er super god og har en fantastisk eftersmag, kan varmt anbefales
Her får man en kompleks rom, som udfordrer i forhold til 12'eren og 15'eren. Stadigvæk en lækker rom, som fylder godt.
Overvejende et genkøb.
Mult laudatul El Dorado de 21 de ani nu e ceea ce te astepti sa fie. Sincer, sunt putin dezamagit de gustul unui rom de 21 de ani.
Excellent sipping rum with complex flavours including leather, oak and spicy vanilla...longish finish. However, the 15 is likely just as good, at significantly less cost
I love the El Dorado rums. Of all of the rum brands that I have tried these are definitely my favourite. I must say though having done a blind taste test of El Dorado 12,15,21 straight myself and a friend agreed that the 12 tasted just as good as the 21. With coke, there seems to be no difference. I love the 21 but would rather buy 2+ bottles of the 12 instead.
Very nice rum, but I find this too expensive. It is a very sweet rum. The 15 yrs is a better choice for me. Still this is an excellent drink.
Just a hint of vanilla. Woodsy. Slightly sweet but not over the top. Alcohol comes through but within limits. A quite nice rum.
It taste different then the 15 and 12... All have the same after taste, it's what's in the mouth and nose that's different.. for the cost I say stick to the 15. I wasn't fond of the 12's nose it reminded me of nail polish and honey... I like the 21 taste in the mouth it's not full body, it has a long after taste of something sweet I can't put my finger on it. I'll keep my 15 and be happy.
Lidt overraskende her lige smagt på en El 12 og 15 og jeg syntes at el 15 var den bedste . Der var en smule bitterhed i den, og jeg syntes at smagen forsvinder for hurtig for en Rom i den prisklasse lidt skuffet 😞
A sweet and smooth rum with lots of dried fruit and a long nice aftertaste
This is a nice smooth sipping rum but like flor De cana 25 and my 1981 English harbour they all just lack that wow factor. That extra flavour and richness. Not my favourite but a nice enough rum nonetheless.
A solid 7.
I must honestly say I thought I was going to love this rum...I don’t. It has a nice bouquet. The taste is good but not my favorite. It is smoky and not too sweet and has some major oak. It almost taste like scotch.
The best of the brand I've had. It's smooth and showcases the best of Guyana
It is a nice rum but not that special. I find that the12 and 15 year have a better overall flavour at a much better price point.
In der Nase kommen Aromen von Holz, Rauch, Kaffee, Schokolade und etwas Honig. Im Geschmack kommt noch "Erde" dazu. Der Geschmack ist süß und lang anhaltend. Meiner Meinung kann man hier nicht viel falsch machen, ein Rum der viele ansprechen dürfte.
