El Dorado Rum 15 Year Old Reviews

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.

    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.

    As others state here, this rum is quite simply amazing. The depth of flavours is extravagant with overtones of caramel, raisins, cinnamon and maple syrup. This is the only rum I have encountered that is enjoyable straight or on the rocks it is genuinely very smooth. Can’t recommend highly enough.

    This is the best rum in the world..great taste its much better than all the other rums i have ever tasted i give el dorado number one..

    I hear a lot of people shouting about cigars, wood and earth. But I think you've got it all wrong. I wouldn't call this a Caribbean rum. After careful consideration (a lot of licks) coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange, all spice, cognac. Definitely fruity and luscious, xmasy but not tiresome. Sipping, yes. Over priced, no. I've spent 4 times as much on rum and this doesn't compare. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva similarly priced (and even better) gives you the same buzz.

    ED 15 rules the Summer, the rest of the year, single malts take over. - TT

    Just had the first taste from my bottle of El Dorado 15yr and it's undoubtedly a top class sipping rum and very enjoyable however I do find it a bit too sweet for my taste. Perhaps i should try it with a dessert, rich fruit cake or some blue cheese. I would like to try the El Dorado 12yr to see how it compares. My all time favourite is still the Appleton Estate 12yr which is just perfection to me.
