Dark mahogany and burnished bronze rum distilled from molasses. A blend of rums aged at least 15 years.
This flagship rum from Demerara Distillers Ltd. defines the Demerara style of rums.
The dark green glass bottle hides the dark mahogany color of fine rum. Blended from aged medium to heavy rums as soon as you open the cork closure the aroma of dark fruit - prune, smoky roasted cashew, baked blackberries and oiled leather invite you to taste the dark spirit.
The body has such depth of character that you can almost chew the fruit, nuts and tobacco that lead to the signature Demerara rum finish of smoky oak, treacle, leather and cigar tobacco with just a touch of sweetness.
This bold smoky rum is best enjoyed with just a splash of water but will add a rich flavor to almost any dark rum cocktail.
Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.

Arctic Wolf's review
According to the DDL website, The El Dorado 15 Year Old Special Reserve Rum is a blend of selected aged rums (some as old as 25 years), from the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills, the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, and the Versailles single wooden pot still. It is blended and aged in old bourbon oak casks. The website also makes it clear that the 15 year age statement represents the youngest rum in the blend.
