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.
I truly enjoy drinking this rum. It's not my favorite but is usually easier for me to find locally. Nice and smooth and I love the smokey finish
It is an excellant choice! Yeah, the price is good but the product too... I tasted it from a friend and I can't wait to have my own one! You can't be disappointed, impossible !
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!!!
Color : Amber with dark gold gleam.
Flavour : Dry wood and spicy notes, well balanced with a light leather and nuts aroma.
Palate : Dry with excelent long lasting finish, the nuts and the wood remain long after ingestion.
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.
Sicuramente un rum di prestigio, costoso sicuramente, ma sono 21 anni di invecchiamento autentici, e la cosa si sente eccome
Excellent rum less sweet than other but still among the best, compare with other top 9 plus sweeter rums to define your palate preference
Een rum met een ontzettend lange rijpperiode van maar liefst 21 jaar lang! El Dorado 21 Year Old Special Reserve is één van de beste rum die wij hier hebben mogen proeven, een sensatie voor de smaakpapillen. Het is een rum die gemaakt is voor de echte kenners en liefhebbers en het beste genoten kan worden door er langzaam van te genieten, samen met enkele speciale vrienden.
De formidabele kleur en het uitzonderlijke karakter is het resultaat van de Meesterdistilleerder van El Dorado. Aan de hand van zijn speciale recept worden speciaal geselecteerde rum geblend, rum die minstens 21 jaar hebben gerijpt op eikenhout, afkomstig van de Coffey still (Enmore hout), de Versailles 'single wooden pot still' en de Albion Savalla still.
Finally added this bottle to my collection, have been keeping the 15 year around as a constant staple on my shelf. The El Dorado line is one of my favorites and now I just need a special occasion to open this addition. Like maybe a Monday.
A really nice, complex demerara rum. Though, pretty pricey compared to its younger brother totally worth it. For me a must have if you enjoy heavy dark rums and especially for those who liked the 12 or 15y El Dorado.
This rum is so smooth and just sweet enough. It's something I have on special occasions. Perfect amount of vanilla, oak, and nuttiness. Pretty amazing stuff!
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.
A more refined, mellow and complex version of the 12 and 15 combined to me sans the smokiness from the 15.Mixed fruits and spicy oak, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a dry long fruity finish. An exquisite rum!
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
Un excellent rhum a prendre après un bon repas..... just wow
I actually prefer the 15yo, but this is a tremendous rum in it's own right. Complex and enduring, great for sipping on special occasions. Not the value the 15 is at over twice the price, IMO.
A good sample of Dry Rum with lot of taste. Too many times Dry=less flavour, but not with El Dorado 21. This is one nicely balanced Rum with full scale of flavours from oak to spiciness.
Strong but smooth with a slight hint of tabac.
Vanilla and toffee creating a nice coat in your mouth.
A truly great Rum
Ever since I tasted my first Rum from Barbados I have been a fan of Demerara rums in general and El Dorado in particular.
The 21 year old has well balanced sweetness, almost no sharpness and still tastes like a real rum. Perfection!
I like the El Dorado range. The 21 year edit is a great rum...very smooth and elegant. but in my opinion a little bit too expensive.
In certain circles, rums aren't considered as refined and nuanced as other spirits, El Dorado 21 is my answer to them. It's moderately priced and reasonably available, but the craftsmanship, history, and sippablity of this rum puts it in league with the finest spirits on the market. It's a solid 9 out of 10, not just against other rums, but across the board. Toffy, vanilla, caramel, oak, black pepper, smoke, molasses, fig, notes of honey and sugar cane. I sip this rum after dinner, neat, no water, just straight rum and it's pretty damn close to perfect.
Well-balanced rum with good taste that always seems to please me.
