Proof66 Notes

El Dorado rums are made at the historic Guyana Demerara plant. The name "el dorado" is said to be from "the old Amerindian word for 'land of many waters.'"

El Dorado 21 Year rum is, they declare, "one of the world' greatest rum drinking experiences." It is openly made for rum connoisseurs and recommended drunk neat. The rums are selected from Versailles wooden pot still and aged for at least 21 years in oak.

Although this is undoubtebly one of the best rums i've ever sipped, personally i prefer their 12 and 15 year old for the price point. This is smoother than the former two, but i dont personally think this offers much more for the price you pay.

Easily the best liquor I've had the pleasure of putting to my lips. Very smooth without feeling weak. Sweet without being teeth aching. Very complex mix of flavors. Ive had several people swear they would never prefer a rum over their favorite scotch or other high end sippers. That lasted until they tried this. Drink neat with a nice glass as the aroma is great. Bottles are available from drinkupny.com if you cant find it local

We may not always agree but Buck Mulligan's review on this rum is dead on===the beverage institute scored this a 98 ----and yes drink it neat----why this rum is not in proof66 top twenty rums if not number one is very hard to understand--I only have 10 rums in my recently started collection but I know without any reservation this will always be at the top-----gp the unexpert

This is unquestionably the greatest rum I have ever had the pleasure of sipping. An older and more refined version of the 15 year old - which is magnificent in its own right - the 21 year old is on par with the finest cognac money can buy. If you are lucky enough to stumble upon this stuff, buy as much of it as you can. And please, for the love of god, drink this neat. The subtlety of the molasses sets it apart from other high end sipping rums (Zacapa XO) as it doesnt overpower the other notes. It belongs in the same conversation with the finest liquors in the world.
