„A fine rum that is appreciated even with the presence of added sugars (without it surely would have taken more). Rich with well-balanced aromas of spice, wood, leather and cigar. Too bad it is too sweet. An easy and pleasant rum to taste.“

„We go up in range and price but the difference in complexity and especially pleasure is not justified compared to the 12 years, which remains my favorite in the El Dorado range.“

„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.“

„It's quite ok for the price and it was a nice entry level for me a couple years ago. You get some dried fruit, cherry, toffee, coffee, hint of licorice. The alcohol integration is not great despite a low ABV.“
