El Dorado 12 year old Demerara Guyana Rum (ships as 1.5L) 750ml

SKU #1028171

El Dorado Rum is made by Demerara Distillers Limited in Guyana, South America and is perhaps the single greatest rum producer on the planet. Having operated since the 1600s, and supplied the British Royal Navy with rum for more than 200 years, the Diamond Estate Distillery still churns out a variety of spirits today. DDL's historic stills, built in the 18th and 19th centuries and still in operation, produce a number of amazing flavors along with more than seven additional stills that create more traditional ones. The deliciously supple 12-year- old uses medium-bodied rums from the Savalle still (a very unique column still with a penchant for fruity aromas) and blends them together with Coffey still, and pot still rums aged in used American oak. The result is a soft and rich flavor, with decadent caramel and molasses, that is never cloying or overly sweet. It's one of the best rums in the world and, for the price, it might be the best deal in all of spirits.

A great rum that is distilled from molasses. It is rich, round, sweet and delicious. While this rum is on the sweeter and richer side, it is not sugary and has complexity to balance it out.

An incredible example of why the El Dorado Rum should be considered some of the world's finest. From a famous rum producing nation, Guyana, Demerara Distillers Ltd is the last functioning distillery in this Caribbean jungle nation. Using some of the world's oldest stills, DDL has been able to continue Guyana's legacy of producing the finest rums. Every offering from El Dorado is strikingly different, but the 12 year stands alone in terms of bang for your buck. This is a blend of 4 rums from 4 different types of still and represents the old style Guyana rum. Delicious!
