Dark brown rum distilled from molasses. Aged 12 years in used whisky and bourbon barrels.

Reformulated in 2006, El Dorado 12 is now much closer in flavor and texture to the flagship of Guyana, El Dorado 15 year old Special Reserve.

Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.

El Dorado 12 Year Rum 

Demerara County (in Guyana) is popular across the world for its rich, three hundred year history of rum production. Using a combination of old wooden stills in conjunction with modern stills and distilling techniques, Demerara Distillers Ltd. (DDL) has built a reputation for outstanding quality and consistent production. In fact, Demerara Distillers is the currently the largest supplier of bulk Caribbean rums to Europe and North America.

This is a review re visitation. The original review for El Dorado 12 Year Old Rum was posted on the Ministry of Rum almost one year ago. It was more of a synopsis of opinion than a true review, and I have been revisiting all of these original reviews, (And the rums that inspired them), in an attempt to provide a more consistency to my blog.

Here is an excepdt from the review:

“…This rum enters my mouth with a spicy sweet baking spice explosion.  Deep dark brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, hints of orange peel and citrus fruit lay upon a foundation of spicy wood tannins….”
