El Dorado 15 year old Demerara Guyana Rum 750ml (ships as a 1.5L)
Premier in the range of rums, is the El Dorado 15 years old Special Reserve Rum. Described as "...attractive, rich copper hue. A complex nose of confectioner's sugar, banana and cedar. A silky entry leads to a moderately full-bodied palate of vibrant, yet refined dry caramel and grilled tropical fruit flavours braced by warm alcohol, and firm, smooth oak spice. Somewhat Scotch like, with subtle peaty overtones. Beautifully proportioned and designed for long contemplative sipping." (Chicago Beverage Tasting Institute) This premium product of great distinction is a blend of specially selected aged rums, some as old as 25 years old, blended to perfection by the company's master blenders and aged in oak casks. To complement this fine product, the rum is packaged in a gold embossed presentation box illustrated with a maritime design, underlying Demerara Distillers' association with ancient maritime traditions. The bottle, a unique custom designed bottle, was inspired by the shape of the old hand blown flasks used on the banks of the Demerara river, centuries ago, by the sugar planters. The Gold Medal was awarded to the El Dorado 15 Years Old Special Reserve at the International Wine and Spirit Competition of London and the International Rum Festival, in the Super Premium Category.
