Un bel rum che si fa apprezzare anche con la presenza di zuccheri aggiunti (senza sicuramente avrebbe preso di più). Ricco di profumi ben equilibrati tra spezie, legno, cuoio e sigaro. Peccato sia troppo dolce. Un rum facile e piacevole da degustare.

Not as sweet as the 12yo. It’s a rum that sets some kind of standard.

On monte en gamme et en prix mais la différence de complexité et de surtout de plaisir ne se justifie pas comparé au 12 ans, qui reste mon favori dans la gamme El Dorado.

An OK Rum, quite on the sweet side on this earlier version. Can go as a sipper, but is not outstanding.

Nice sipper when you want regular, available sweet rum.

Grundsätzlich ein wirklich schönes Demerara-Geschmacksprofil. Es wird aber durch massig Zucker und schlappe 43% völlig versenkt. Schade...dieses Profil, kein Zucker, 60%. Schön wärs...

Strangely never had this one before. Easy sipper but overall quite nice. The caramel thats in the cask (not in the newest versions!) hits in taste and aftertaste especially..although far from Don Papa sweetness. I like this.

For me the 12yo is the better one!

Am Anfang war dies mein absoluter Lieblingsrum. Von daher kann Ich diesen jedem Einsteiger sehr ans Herz legen. Aber mittlerweile ist er mir zu süß geworden. Aber dennoch ein schöner rum

My dad was proud to share his new bottle. Seeing the bottle and box I think it’s the “new version”. It does not taste overly sweet. It’s a nice and accesible Guyana rum, value for money a good product.

A solid rum. The best i could find in sofia 😶‍🌫️ A bit fruity, woody and caramelized/sweet. I think it’s sweetened

Ich bin kein Süßrumtrinker und weigere mich auch nach wie vor so etwas Rum zu nennen. Wenn es denn jedoch für jemanden unbedingt ein Süßrum sein soll, weil nunmal die Vorlieben entsprechend sind, dann würde ich mich ganz klar für diesen hier aussprechen Ja er ist stark verdünnt, Massenwahre und nachgezuckert, aber eben auch 15 volle Jahre bei DDL tropisch gereift, was man durchaus riecht und schmeckt. Das macht ihn für mich zu den authentischsten und komplexesten Süßrum, den es auf dem Markt gibt
