El Dorado
8 Year Old Rum

Category: Aged Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Guyana
Alcohol: 40%
Amber color. Aromas of caramel coated nougat, circus peanut, and maduro cigar with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a medium-length salted butterscotch, prosciutto, burnt sugar, parmesan, flamed orange, clove, and candied peanuts finish. A cognac-like rum with lots of sultry rancio notes.

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
