“Gouté rapidement sur le Rhumfest. Encore une fois j'ai du mal à comprendre la "politique" El Dorado. Ça se vend pour deux fois le prix du 15ans. En gros un bon Versailles très torréfié, sucre brûlé et crème brulée mais réduit à 40%. C'est parfait pour découvrir un simple still sans monter les degrés d'alcool mais du coup, le prix n'est pas adapté. Et pour l'amateur qui veut le produit typé Versailles, le prix ne gênera pas mais le rhum mnque clairement d'intensité... Bref c'est un bon rhum facile d'accès mais si vous n'êtes pas spécialiste Guyana, vous prendrez un 15 ans sans hésiter pour vous faire plaisir à prix sympa et si vous êtes à fond, vous passerez votre chemin car il vous manquera quelque chose.”

“Interessant, dass hier nur sehr wenig vom klassischen Versailles-Profil übrig ist. Stattdessen satte Süsse von Ahornsirup und dunklem Karamell. Interessant, andererseits schade, dass hier nicht die typische Bleistiftspäne-Note auflebt und die 2009er-Serie mit den unterschiedlichen Destillen im Namen somit in diesem Falle nicht als Einstieg dient. Davon abgesehen sehr süffig, nicht uninteressant, wenn auch insgesamt eher geradlinig.”
