The word from Anders on El Dorado 12 Year Old Rum:
This rum is wonderfully rich with a toffee-like sweetness. Fun to mix with, but I also love just sipping it neat.

I am new to drinking rum neat. I saw a review on this saying it was better than the Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva, which I like very much, so I bought it to try. Very smooth with very little harshness if at all. I know I am probably going to get flack for this, but I like it better than the Doorly's 12 year, which to me seems better suited for a bourbon drinker. The only thing I don't like is that the flavors are not as intense as the Diplimatico, but that's probably because El Dorado doesn't have all of that sugar & coloring dumped into it that the Diplimatico does not to mention my inexperienced palate. However I would be perfectly happy if this was the only rum I could drink for the rest of my life. And it's cheaper than the Diplimatico and the Doorly's 12 year, which is also a plus.Best ForRated 2.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

I wasn't sure what to expect as I tend to be a fan of the mixer cheaper style rums such as Captain Morgan's stock. But this was a delightful rum that deserved at times nothing more than a ice cube and a clean glass to sip at instead of my normal mixing pleasure.Best ForRated 1.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

Still new to rums so grain of salt and all that, but this one is just so smooth to drink. On the rocks I get a lot of brown sugar notes. Not a lot of burn and no real funk so fairly void of off flavors. Would recommend
- JacksonVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 starsA no-brainer for the price
This is a really nice blended, aged rum. It's extremely versatile, being a nice enough rum to be featured in spirit-forward drinks while being priced reasonably enough to take a supporting role in a tiki drink (and doing that job very well to boot).
Being a blended, aged rum, this isn't the funkiest rum you'll come across. It's not devoid of funk, but it's no Smith & Cross. It's much more approachable than that.
It's a mainstay in my cabinet. If you haven't tried it, it's definitely worth a try.
