About El Dorado 5 Year Aged Rum
El Dorado 5 Year rum is a good choice if you're looking for a solid Demerara Rum for your tiki cocktails.
Years ago there were hundreds of rum distilleries in Demerara. Today there is only one. El Dorado 5 Year Rum is produced by Demerara Distillers, the last remaining distillery in Guyana.

If you're looking for a demerara rum to mix tiki drinks this is my personal go to. The El Dorado 12 in my opinion is the best sipper of this line, I prefer it over the 15 year. But for cocktails I stick with this every time. It's cheaper, and once you add the citrus it's hard to tell them apart.Best ForRated -2.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

First off, I prefer this over the 8 year old when it comes to cocktails or simply mixed drinks in general. I would also categorize this rum with Plantation 5 year, if you enjoy that rum then this would be another welcomed addition to your home bar.Best ForRated -1.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

I got this because I love demerara rum and it's difficult to get in Oregon, minimum $40 without a sale. This stuff has the flavor that I seek! My only problem is that it doesn't have the same mouth feel as Hamilton or Lemon Hart. It's also not as proofy as I like, but it gets the job done. Totally worth it!Best ForRated -1.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
