How does this rum taste?

Smooth with hints of vanilla and smoke, the El Dorado 5 offers subtle dried fruit and butterscotch notes. Best in cocktails; its sugary sweetness and warmth make it a crowd-pleaser, particularly in a rich, banana-vanilla daiquiri. A solid mixer with a slight bite.

“This one became a favorite with my friends once I made a daiquiri with it. El Dorado 5 year old Fresh lime juice Maple syrup Mix rate 2/1/1 1 Banana 1 Fresh vanilla bean Scrape out the vanilla bean and put everything into a blender with ice cubes. If you have a high ABV demerara you can add one part to add a kick to it.”

“Sugary nose. Nutty, chocolaty, fairly complex but slightly alcoholic flavor. The pleasant flavors give way to astringency rather quickly. Ace mixing rum.”
