A great 12 year old Demerara rum from El Dorado. This has won golds at the Caribbean Rum Taste Test in London 7 times in the first 10 years! There are nine stills at the distillery, and this is based around coffey still rum, and double wooden pot still rum.
Nose: Sweet, toffee, vanilla, spices, oak. Hints of smoke.
Palate: Cocoa, caramel, prunes, spices, vanilla.
Finish: Long, sublimely smooth, hints of smoke on the tail.

Bought this as an alternative to Cpt Morgan. Interesting floral woody notes and smooth. The only con i have with this rum is there is no throat burn that you get with other rums. Very good to mix with iced tea.

What i find about this rumIs its to sweet and it has a artificial taste to it, like aspartame

This run is a little hidden treasure! Never fails to impress friends with its fabulous flavour. Perfect for sipping over ice.

Simply serve over ice, sit back and enjoy! I found that the taste was very rich and creamy but as whole a really well balanced rum, would definitely recommend!

this is the first amber rum i have been introduced to and this is definitely a sure value

Overtly sweet (more than 40 g/liter) and not very balanced in flavor. A real disappointment when compared to independent demerara rum bottlings.

Blind taste testing with friends vs Flora de Cana 12 yr and Matusalem 18 and Eldorado was the favourite.Will see how it fairs in next showdown, any suggestions for competition?

This was a good rum, now, this tastes sweet like many other rum liquors out there... Added sugar is the thing that comes to the fore when drinking. Better than some.

Very creamy and sugary, supprisingly refreshing finish, delicious as a drink. Yet I was disappointed when whiffing the smell from a drained glass, to discover the unmistakeable odor of sawdust. While understandable that it is stilled in wooden pots, they had not been thorough enough with cleaning the pots, which leaves a sad aftertaste and whiff.

Sweet, eminently quaffable, superb finish. Perhaps a little less complex than Mount Gay XO, but overall a better rum.

Sorry to disagree with the crowd but found this harsh - too bitter for 12yr- much prefer Cruzan single barrel or aged, Appleton 12 or Extra, or many, many others. This was a big disappointment.
22nd May 2014
tried it straight and while it was drinkable unlike ur average rum i wouldnt call it smooth, tried with a few ice cubes and it improved, at the mo im taking it with a bit of diet coke, maybe im time my pallete will take to it

HI GOT MY 1ST BOTTLE FOR XMAS AND YES I OPENED IT , AND ITS GREAT VERY NICE SWEET BUT A LITTLE HARSH ITS NOT TOTALLY SMOOTH ON ITS OWN BUT YES A GREAT RUM AND ID BUY IT AGAIN

Complex but not difficult to drink. Really well balance but with its own unique character. Over ice is a treat.
10th August 2013
this is one of the best sipping rums in my opinion.not as smooth as the 15 or 21yr old or something like the Zacappa solera - but if you're having it over ice or with a dash of sparkling spring water i think it is far superior. If you were to offer me any of these at the same price i would still take the 12yr old. not sure i want to sing its praises too much or it will start selling out all over the shop...

Red-tinged gold. Quite a pungent nose, sweet but slightly vegetal - like an agricole, or Wray & Nephew, but only a hint. Quite fruity, like berries dipped in honey. Still lots of bite, peppery finish. Great - a good crossover from mixing to sipping.

When I was younger I read a description of a cold, wet child on a pirate ship being offered a sip of rum by a kindly sea-farer and feeling instantly warmed and cheered. This is the rum I imagine him drinking. If you're going for a classic and beautiful rum - go no further. It may not be as cheap as the similarly flavoured, but sweeter, Doorly's XO but this is a more complex, richer and ultimately more satisfying dram, and worth the extra £10 is has on Doorly's - although Doorly's is a fine drink. Ultimately a superb purchase, I just wish a 70cl bottle would last longer.
