El Dorado is part of the only remaining rum production house in Guyana's Demerara region. The tradition of the spirit here begins in the 1600s with the establishment of Dutch colonies, who used the mineral-rich soils to cultivate a thriving sugar cane harvest. By the 1900s, 300 rum distilleries had reduced down to only the Demerara Distillers Limited under which the El Dorado family is produced.
Here we have their brilliant 21 Year Old Special Reserve rum, a blend of Demerara rums which have been aged for at least 21 years in oak casks. This is a really special spirit and is the highest-scoring rum ever to be tasted by the Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago! On the nose smoky aromas of chocolate, caramel, and Christmas cake are followed by flavours of dried fruits and hints of nutmeg. It has a long and spicy finish that you'd expect of such a highly regarded dark rum and is perfect sipped neat.
