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.
Everything I love about rum in the bottle, caramel, vanilla, nice wooden taste, a little sweeter than the 15 years old. But for almost half the price, the 15 years old does everything perfectly, Stick to that one!
Very good rum. One of my finest rum in my bar. But expensive for what it brings... But the quality is There. Still have à lot of added sugar though.
For me, one of the best rum that I've tried!
This is an amazing sipping rum. Complex flavours, not over-sweet and smooth finish. Darn near perfection!
I love the El Dorado 21 and and keep it stocked!
This is one one of my favorite to enjoy my cigars with on the weekend. truly a fine rum, can't say enough great things about it.
Nice taste, a bit oaky but still sweet.
A clear taste and a well balanced rum.
The best for the price.
This stuff is the best I have had ever had the pleasure of tasting... Delicate flavours throughout the whole drink on the rocks... It's amazing Really good... If you have any money this should be a definate purchase... To mix it is a sin
So much flavour!! Long lingering finish, super smooth and very complex it's close to being my favourite rum!!
Kærlighed ved første sip. Denne rom er så lækker. Jeg elsker at byde mine gæster denne masterblend. Hat genkøbt den 2 gange nu og jeg er stadig vild med den.
Là on est sur du très très très bon rhum ! L'équilibre entre sucre, les épices, les fruits, etc. est parfait et lui confère une complexité parfaite avec de nouvelles notes à découvrir à chaque gorgée. Un de mes rhums favori dans cette gamme de prix.
Un des meilleurs de ma collection.
One the best, must have.
So so smooth. Pure joy sipping with a close friend who appreciates not just fine rum but truly exceptional rum. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions....on just about any subject..but anyone that gives this rum a score of less than 8 doesn't know rum. In this price range this rum may have some equals but none better.
Not because of the price-tag, but this stuff is REALLY freakin' good, people! Near perfect rum. Another solid entry from El~Dorado. Richness competes with oakiness, providing a taste-profile that has a nicely balanced sweet & smoky quality - buttery toffee and brown-sugar flavors intermingle with oak to rightly satisfy any pure rum-drinker's discerning palate! If not, well, then, I don't know what to tell you. Drink what you like, but I'm sticking to this.
Excellent sip rum with a good amount of sugar but not in excess. We did a tasting of the 12,15, 21 years and the 12 years was just as good as this one or the 15 years, if not better. A little too expensive considering the qualities his younger brothers
This is a nice Dark deep-seated rum. It has a very Smooth taste and its age shows. This is a very decent alternative to a fine aged Cuban rum.
Your review – you could include things like color, aroma, body, taste, finish, spice, smoothness… really anything you want! You can also share an optional picture of the drink (or better still - you enjoying it!) by attaching a photo below.
Excellent rum less sweet than other but still among the best, compare with other top 9 plus sweeter rums to define your palate preference
This has such a different flavor profile than anything else in my collection. Almost tastes a little musky, a hint olivey. Must be those heritage stills they use... It's a great one to round out your bar with something a little different, and very interesting.
Was concerned the rum would be come to oaky at 21 as the 15 was pushing it.
It doesn't it's excellent. Would give it a ten if it was little cheaper......
Full review to follow soon on
Smooth touch with a minor dry finish that stays a while..
Truely loved the first sniff I took at it, So many aroma's running free when you swirl it just once after that first sniff.
When you poor that first sip on your tongue the rum really comes together.
Oak, tabbacco, vanilla , just a couple of flavors that come to mind.
Great rum , but the price is accordingly high.
This is a Family Selection Rum, you need to have it but, drink it in special moments or with the family. Like all others El Dorado is perfectionon the bottle, I love it From the first sip , very harmonious, with character, sweet and the usual wood flavor. Absolute pleasure from the first contact with the tongue up to the grandiose finish !
Sicuramente un rum di prestigio, costoso sicuramente, ma sono 21 anni di invecchiamento autentici, e la cosa si sente eccome
Den Rum hat mir meine Frau vor zwei Jahren geschenkt - dafür liebe ich sie noch mehr! Schon beim ersten Schluck war es um mich geschehen und n den 21er El Dorado verliebt. Ein sehr harmonischer Rum, ganz ohne aggresive Alkoholtendenzen. Geschmack nach Kokos, Vanille und Nuss, mit leichtem Zimteinschlag. Ein absoluter Genuss vom ersten Kontakt mit der Zunge bis hin zum grandiosen Abgang!
Ok the 12 year is great value, the 15 is my standard to judge all other rums, the 21 was equally good. More complex, but not as sweet in my opinion. I bought the 25 year for a special occasion and given el dorados record you know it will be a treat! You cannot go wrong with ED!!!
