Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: The best Christmas cake you can imagine. Refined, enticing aromas of candied peel, allspice, cinnamon, dried fruit and golden syrup.

    Palate: Complex, spicy dried fruit, with interweaving layers of honey, gingerbread and toasty oak. This is very classy stuff, never overbearing.

    Finish: Honeyed, spicy finish that persists.

    Comment: An exceptional rum, which has complexity in spades yet is beautifully balanced. Anyone who dismisses rum as a one-dimensional category should try this, and prepare to be wowed.

    I wasn't a rum drinker before I was introduced to El Dorado; I was a fan of whisky. However, I was converted by taster sessions with Steph (a lovely lady who used to be El Dorado's rep). Having tried the 3,5,8,12,15,& 21 year old rums, I thought the 15yo was the best. I've bought quite a few bottles since, both for our family and the odd present. If I could only have one type of alcoholic drink for the rest of my life, the El Dorado 15 would be my choice. This is a sipping rum to be enjoyed neat. Do not ruin it with ice! Just sip it slowly; I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    Have tried many Rums and this is very smooth, good honey notes, great straight up. Waiting to try the other variations and the 21yr old to compare but will definitely buy this one again

    As fine as old Armagnac. Really. Straight up in a snifter after a great meal. I've turned so many stuffy types on to fine rum with El Dorado 15. As good as it gets.

    I'll be fair and say this isn't the best rum I've ever tried. No, I'd probably give it second spot aha, its outstanding! Easilly something I could drink on the regular.

    By far the nicest rum I have ever had. Found this by accident in dubai airport whilst looking for chairmans reserve. Way better than chairmans well worth the extra money.

    I prefer Pampero Aniversario than this, but Angostura 1824 than Pampero, but Cacique 500 than Pampero.

    Just tried my first taste of the 12 year old in St Lawrence Gap in Barbados. Incredible - better than some of the best Cognacs. A true sipping rum that should be savoured. Can't believe the guy from Halifax comments though! Straight out of the freezer with rocks!! Absolute sacrilege - just savour the taste and don't kill it with ice.

    I love this stuff. I''ve been trying different rums all over the world for years and never found anything that can compare to ED 15. Perfect straight out of the freezer or on the rocks.

    High quality Rum! Very smooth, great straight or on the rocks. This is absolutely my favorite rum and I love the syrup notes that linger after each sip. Great sipping Rum, the best I''ve found.
