EL Dorado 21 Year Old Rum
Made from rums of between 21 and 25 years of age, matured in 45-gallon oak casks, within six degrees of the equator in Guyana. El Dorado 21 Year was awarded a Gold at the International Rum Festival 2003 in Canada and a Silver at the 2003 International Wine and Spirit Competition in London. Most remarkably, this was the highest-scoring rum ever to be tasted by the Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago.
That is how the beverage tasting institute of Chicago summed up their appreciation of El Dorado 21 Year old special reserve. Designed for true rum connoisseurs its warm subtlety is best savored slowly on its own – and shared with a few very special friends.
This glorious, full-bodied rum of exquisite taste and character was launched in late 2002 and has quickly established itself as one of the finest on the market.
The superb color and character of this exquisite rum is the creation of our master blender. His special recipe blends specially selected rums, oak-aged for at least 21 years, from the Enmore wooden Coffey still, the Versailles single wooden pot still, and the Albion savable still.
Buttery, with chocolatey notes of Rolos behind it. Ripe banana and fruity Christmas cake. Hints of tobacco and sandalwood, leading into spent match smokiness.
Sultanas, dates, blackcurrant, and macadamia nuts. A touch of rosewater, too. The mid-palate brings dark chocolate and nutmeg too.
It just keeps going! There are fried bananas and handfuls of raisin note right through to the end, with just a little hint of spicy cinnamon.
