First of all, what a stunning bottle that is. Looks good where ever you put it 😉
It's an expensive bottle of rum, but worth every penny.
The color is fantastic, and the rum is full of life and just melts on your tongue.
Its fruity and dry. I can taste vanilla, oak, raisin and tobacco. Of course its diffrent from one man to another 😀
Exceptionnal and slightly too expensive.
Its a great rum that should be sipped while listening to Jazz.
It's a rich yet subtle, complex and well balanced.
The price of this one hurts still to this day, but I can't complain about the flavor, the impact of pulling out this bottle, the completeness it gives my soul... It's rich and delicious with heavy raisin sweetness at the start, ending clean and dry. Smooth and extremely dark. Yes there is still a touch of buyer's regret, but only because the happiness it gives it similar to the joy from it's less expensive brethren of the El Dorado line...
Very few rums I've experienced give me as much pleasure as this bottle of El Dorado 25 Years Old. The rum is soft, subtle, with a rich dark caramel nose, oaken spice, nuts, dried fruit, well.... grab a bottle already. So what if it's a few dollars. The best in life costs extra.
Fantastisk rom. Måske ikke helt pengene hver. Kan finde noget lige så godt til billigere penge
I was fortunate to taste this rum a handful of times, and find it truly at the top of the tops. Complex, smooth, full, balanced and... tasty. When I allowed a friend to try it (once) he said "I never knew rum could be like that."
Didn't buy the bottle but found some at a tasting bar. Honey-toffee clean and no burn. Probably my favourite tasting rum however prohibitively expensive.
I enjoyed this rum. It perfectly fits to my taste. One bottle given to my very good friend from Taiwan, so I do believe he will enjoy, as well.
...ya gotta get this smooth powerful, flavor bomb. A slight smoked essence passes over the vanilla....
I've only tasted this once, but I fell in love with it. Unfortunately, I can't afford a bottle right now, but it sure is on my wishlist. Perfection.
Denna rom är el Dorado flaggskepp, deras lilla baby. Men för de pengarna skulle jag lätt köpa t ex 3 st zacapa royal för istället. Visst den är minst 25 år gammal, rätt komplex i smaken men den smakar för mycket honung och är lite för söt för mig. Den är inte dålig, då jag ger den en 8a, hade kunnat gett den 9a men pga priset dras betyget ner. Alldeles för blommig och honungsmak. Men varit kul att få testa. Kanske ändrar mig i framtiden.
Am avut ocazia sa degust putin din acest rom la Festivalul de la Berlin si pot spune ca este in top 10 cele mai bune de pana acum. Am descoperit multe arome iar aftertaste-ul este spectaculos! Straight up sau on the rocks!
It is a fine rum for sure, enjoyed best whilst sipping and savoring the price.
a little over flavored with peanuts , raisin and tobacco,
A fine bottle but for my pallet a little too rubbery.
Dufter himmelsk, fed, sødme, krydret.
Den smager bare super. Den er Olieret, god sødme og masser af smags oplevelser.
Utrolig lang og lækker eftersmag.
Men til over 4000 kr. Så bliver det nok ikke en samlingen.
Tried this at a tasting bar when I first started drinking hard liquor. What a mistake that was, because it kind of ruined all other rums for me. Incredibly smooth and complex, tastes of vanilla and oak, sometimes I get a hint of cherry in there as well but it could just be because I ate cherries, haha. Extremely well balanced and rich. No burns in the mouth and you get this nice warmth once it hits your stomach that will expand to the rest of your body. Very satisfying to drink. I'm sure lots of people will tell me that there are similar or better rums out there, but for me, this is simply the best.
This is definitely a premium rum. However, the only reason it didn't earn a 10 is because I didn't find it different enough from the El Dorado 21-year to justify the 4x price. Still worth a sip, though!
