El Dorado

This is the flagship products from Demerara Distilleries. They do offer a couple of older versions, like the 21 year old and a rare 25 year old rum. The El Dorado 15 year old rum is a dark rum.The rum is named after the city of El Dorado. The name is based on an Indian chief who founded the golden city, according to the city's legend. Because of the wealth an traditions of the chief, the name El Dorado has come to mean the best that money can buy.
El Dorado Special Reserve. Demerara has established a reputation over the last 300 years for producing the best rums in the world. Matured for at least 15 years in oak casks, this fine rum of great distinction is specially blended to achieve its exquisitely smooth, award-winning character.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Bright golden amber. A well aged spirit.
Aroma: Sweet, molasses, honey with tobacco and toasted oak.
Palate: Starts extremely smooth with a touch of sweetness. The tobacco is still present. The flavour is deep and rich. Finishes smooth with a bit of spiciness.
Notes: This may very well be the best rum I have tried to date. It is ultra smooth with robust flavours and sweet tobacco like flavour. The flavour profile fits what I look for in a rum. Smooth to start, with some sweetness and a smooth spicy finish. What's not to like?
