Default Another one from Canada


I'm a new member from Ontario, Canada. I've always been a fan of rum but it's only recently that I've started to enjoy spirits such as rum on their own as opposed to mixing or shooting.

My experience is limited but so far I love the Appleton Extra 12 and Ron Zacapa 23.

My next bottle is going to be from the El Dorado line of rums. My choice is their 12, 15 or the 21 year old rums. Any recommendations on which one to start with?

I actually buy most of my bottles at duty free (I've got family in the USA that we visit often) so price isn't much of an issue since even the 21 is pretty inexpensive compared to LCBO pricing.

Welcome to the Ministry!

I would start with the 12yr, get your bearings and then move on up. In my opinion the 15yr is great bang for the buck! i have the entire line in my collection and enjoy these throughly when not sipping my favorite from Cuba.

Let us know how you make out.

I find El Dorado 21 to be the best however ED 12 is a very good choice to start with.
