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.
Une histoire qui se répète pour la famille El Dorado ...
Comme ses deux frères .. 12 et 15 ans.
Simplement trop cher pour un produits hyper commercial.
Bon, mais à ce prix, trop de bouteilles passent devant !
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.
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 like El Dorado 15 Years better! I taste it with Luigi
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 😞
Très diffèrent du 12 et 15 ans. Pour le prix, je préfère le 15 ans. Bon, mais sans plus
Nose: light sweet , caramel , dry fruit ,alcoholic,wood
Taste: light sweet, spicy , caramel , alcoholic, dry fruit ,vanilla , sugar,wood.
sharper than the 12 or 15 year old one.
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.
Harsh smokey rum, a bit like an single malt whiskey. Round, big bodied liquid for the advanced rumdrinkers with a big wallet. I don't want my rums to taste like whiskey. If I want whiskey I drink whiskey. Hope that the 12 yo is my cup of tea instead.
Good nose with lots of rum raisin. Flavor is a bit of a letdown compared to the nose. A good rum, but not awesome.
I was disappointed by this one. A smooth whiskey would have done the same trick for me. The dry taste of bourbon barrels caught me off guard. Not what I expected after the good 12 year old and wonderful 15 year old.
For a 100$ in Québec,CA you can get better than that for a lower price, it as a strong wood barrel after taste.
El Dorado 21 year is way too close to a good cognac than a flavorful aged dark rum, and it has a surprisingly strong after burn. Best memory is from the Demerara Distilleries between Georgetown and Cheddi Jagan Airport in Guyana when I visited their rum distillery and enjoyed their entire line up in its own surroundings.
This one was a disappointment.. The taste of oak trashed this one for me.. Strong taste of the rum but i´ll stick with the 15 years in my cabinet.
Borde varit bättre...!
Med tanke på pris..
Flaskan borde oxå spegla priset man tar..!
For what this rum costs (2 to 4x more than others), you are better suited to buy mire bottles if another type. El Dorado 12 is the best that they make, and they quickly go down hill with age, which is perplexing. If you prefer harsh, this is for you.
Ive only tasted the 15yr eldorado and i like that better. This one is sweeter tho, but it Got like a sour taste i dont like
I get brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, and toffee. As the glass sits I can pick up orange, spice and chocolate. It smells massively complex. Sadly dulled by the ageing practices
