    Tasty and smooth, without any alcohol burn. Complex, flavors come out slowly with a mellow effect on the senses.

    The best sipping rum I have tried (so far). Sweeter than pot rums. Really complex taste that keeps on giving. More depth than Zacapa Solero 23, but not quite as smooth

    I've had the pleasure of enjoying this Rum for several years now after being gifted a bottle several years ago. I've tried the 15-year-old El Dorado and this is better. I find the 15-year-old to be too smokey, good but not great. I've tried many other top end Rums many times the cost of the 12-year-old El Dorado but I always come back to this Rum. Sipped while smoking a cigar it is the closest you can come to an orgasm with having one.

    This was my first time with 12 yr old eldorado rum and letting it breathe at room temperature made the world of difference It's a exceptional drink and would recommend it .highly

    Bought a bottle a few says ago. (El Dorado 12yr Old) It is easily good enough to be drinkable neat or on ice, and it was awesome with Coke, (I go light on the Coke) and then I also made an Old Fashioned with it which was heavenly. I'm sold, great stuff.

    The five yr old isn't bad. This is great. I'm told by a very reliable source (who genuinely knows his rum and has bottles of both) that it's better than the 15.

    The 12 year old is by far one of the best rums around. No wonder is has recieved so many awards. I always recommend this to friends. A real winner!

    I'm new to Rum. I picked this up & brought it home. I opened it & poured a shot, took a sip. Didn't like it so I let the bottle sit open for an hour. The difference in smell and taste was like night & day. Buy this Rum but let it breathe for an hour & then sip in the nectar of the gods :)

    I always try my rum neat before using for cocktails. I enjoyed this more then the 21yr. It was also amazing with Coke and made rum and eggnog absolute heaven. Normally I would have it with Ice or chilled but I preferred this rum at room temperature.

    The taste is sweet woody spice with hints of fruit. You then get a mild to medium warmth from the alcohol as you swallow. When drank neat the flavors are intense and its quite smooth and easy to drink especially if you have a sweet tooth. Though I found with ice the flavor is diluted and the taste of the alcohol is more prominent. So drinking it neat for me is the way to go. The only downside is you have to show restraint as you could easily drink half the bottle in a evening.lol

    This is one of the finest rums I have ever tasted. Growing up in Florida and having Caribbean family I grew up drinking rum, but as I got older I wanted more than Appleton or Mount Gay. Tonight with some friends I had a tasting: El Dorado 12 and Ron Zacapa Centenario XO Rum Solera Gran Reserva Especial. Despite the El Dorado being 1/3 the price of the Ron Zacapa, all who tasted both said the El Dorado had a nicer fragrance, a better mouth-feel and a superior aftertaste, one that is complex with flavors of vanilla, wood and tobacco amongst other flavours. It is a truly delicious rum and at around ?30 a bottle it is an absoluteam steal!!! Put it into a brandy snifter for best effect, and for goodness sake do not use it as a mixer!!

    This I a fantastic sipping rum, but it also mixes very well too. It smooth and this is a strange word to use comfortable, it''s a sit and take your time drink and it''s so full of flavour, very very nice.
