El Dorado 8 Bottling Note

A more recent part of the El Dorado range, this is aged in bourbon barrels and offers a heavier body than the 5 year old, but still not as heavy as the 12 and 15, making this a great mixing rum, though not a bad sipping spirit either!

El Dorado 8 Year Old Reviews

Smells & Tastes Like You’re Having Christmas Pudding

On the nose I get notes of treacle from this 8 year old El Dorado Rum, which inevitability makes my mind think of Christmas Pudding. Drank neat, the sweet fruity flavour of this rum is clearly evident, because that’s immediately what you experience on your palate. However, although this rum is sugary, which I love in all rums, (got a sweet tooth what can I say) it’s a thumbs down from me, for three reasons. Firstly, the burn is very harsh. Secondly, it tastes like Christmas Pudding which I can’t stand! And finally, there is zero taste in the finish. In El Dorado’s defence, it does mix well with full fat Coca-Cola and improves some what. But even with the dark fizzy pop coming to its aid, this rum still ends up tasting smoky and heavy with a very strange aftertaste.

Not impressed

Didn’t do it for me , definitely not a sipper and was always looking for something on the taste where it should have automatically been there, I much prefer the 5 year old as a mixer, then the 12 year old up for sipping,I’m a fan of “el dorado” rums but not this one,
