El Dorado 25 years old Tasting notein Tasting , Demerara
“This stunning El Dorado rum is perhaps the best rum I have ever tasted.”
This was distilled in 1980 and, by Jove, it's one of the most fantastic rums you'll ever try, aged for a whopping 25 years.
Perhaps overpriced but definitively an awesome rum. One of the best rum I have had.
This dram has a mahogany-like color.
Nose (85): more than average. molasses, varnish, spices, wood, pepper, floral, hazelnut. It is strange. It smells of old but slightly bad and really good at times.
Palate (93): smooth, oily, creamy. sweet, honey, molasses, brown sugar, sugar cane, spices, cardamom. Awesome! Non plus ultra!
Finish (90): longer than average. honey, molasses, brown sugar, floral, citrus.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this El Dorado 25 year with 89 points over 100.
