El Dorado Special Reserve 15-Year rum is crafted from 15 to 25 year old rums that are then blended and married together in bourbon oak casks. Prior to blending the original batches are distilled using 4 unique stills - the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills, the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, and the Versailles single wooden pot still.
The bottle of El Dorado Special Reserve 15-year was inspired by the the old hand-blown flasks used by sugar planters on the banks of the Demerara river.
strong & powerful
After tasting 12yo I tries this one. But it is sharp and not very good. After letting it breath it is better, but still...
But I prefer El Dorado 12-year, which in my opinion is a little sweeter, and much easier to drink.
Very sweet, heavy bourbon and oak notes. Overaged in my taste, and definitely dozed heavily. Vanilla sweetness and heavy oak flavors. Not worth the cost, but a fine rum for what it is
I waited a while before I was finally able to find this bottle in Pennsylvania. The bottle is slightly tinted, so the rum is not as dark as in bottle. It is quite smooth with a nice finish. I don't taste all the flavors as others describe, but it is still enjoyable.
The 12 year El Dorado us spectacular, but adding 3 years turns it into the much harsher 15. If you have a choice, get the 12 instead of this.
I liked it but there is such a minimal difference to the 12 year that does not justify the price difference. I'll go with the cheaper 12 year old.
Très bien, mais je préfère le 12 ans. "Chaleur" d'alcool trop présente à mon goût, comme son côté boisé.
Very good, but I prefer the 12-year. Heat of alcohol too present for my taste
Mange steder læser jeg at El Dorado rommen er nogle af de bedste også ift. prisen. Jeg har kun prøvet denne 15 års. Til min smag var den ganske fin, men ikke noget der slog benene væk under mig. Bliver nok ikke til endnu et køb.
Til mig kan man få bedre for pengene
I bought a bottle of this as my introduction to El Dorado. I really like to sip it. The 21 YO is in it's own class, but you will not be disappointed with the 15.
Great flavours, makes a killer old fashioned. Not as good as the 12
Dejlig og god rum fungere godt til kaffen med en god dessert til
En fin rom, som starter lidt sprittet med så kommer en dejlig god eftersmag.
Oui il a de la qualité c'est un rhum intéressant. Moins bon que le 12 mais plus caputeux loin des rhums que j'ai noté 8 et 9.
Well balanced, fairly smooth, and easy to drink overall, I'm just not getting as much of the complex flavors that are given in the product descriptor. Also seemed a bit too watery. I wouldn't say no if somebody offered it to me in the future, but it's not likely to be one of my go-tos.
the 12 year old one is less sharper , more taste , and cheaper for me.
Nose: little bit sweet ,alcoholic. light sharp, spicy ,oak, fruity , caramel, smoke , wood
Taste: little bit sweet ,alcoholic. light sharp, spicy ,dark fruit , caramel,vanilla , smoke , wood
En anelse bedre end 12 års, stadig lidt kedelig eftersmag og en anelse sprittet.
I got a bottle out of a recommendation. It is not bad, but I could have spent my money better. The flavor is bland and it is underproofed. I do not think I can relate its flavor to what I normally do with other rums. It is not disapointing, but given the options that there are, I would choose something else.
Solid standard rum. Nothing memorable, but worth trying. I would compare it to the millionario 15 which is in the same price range too.
I like this rum as much as the 12 year version. I just think it has a little more bite to it.
much more "oaky", however the 21 year old is still much better in direct comparation.
I didn't like the first time i opened the bottle. I descided to give it another try and it's growing on me. I'll rate it 7 and might up it to 8 later. The taste is too'whiskey' like. I like sweeter rums, and it's a bit to dry for me, but the more i drink it with a cigar the more i like it. I can see why people like it, just not my thing (yet)
Eines der besten Preis-Leistungs Verhältnisse im Markt. Super Basic Rum.
