Default El Dorado Bottle and Really Old Bacardi bottle.

Hey I found a couple of really old rum bottles in my recently diseased grandmother's apartment. I want to know more information since I can't find it anywhere on the internet. They look really expensive and they have not been opened.

The names of the bottles are:

El Dorado by Serralles ( made in Puerto Rico)
Ron Bacardi Añejo (extra special 6 years)
British Navy Pusser's Rum

Welcome to the forums. sorry to disappoint you but none of those bottles is particularly old but that doesn't mean they aren't good rum. Pusser's has been around since 1979, though the new bottles are a different label and probably a lower proof than the one you have.

Serralles Gran Anejo is still being bottled but the newer bottling is slightly heavier and more interesting than their older bottling of that rum.

If the Bacardi Anejo is from Puerto Rico is has a bit more character than that product presently being bottled in Mexico. You can tell by the back label.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
