Compared to the old sweeter version this one is a step forward. Instead of the sugar covering your palate you get a more hones and slightly spicy palate. The wood is there and so are the spices and semi heavy caramel, but it is a far better version. If you get the chance then give it a try. Price to quality is very good.

After I learned that a Guyana rum without added sugar is offered here, I just had to access as a Guyana fan. It was more than worth it. Roasty coffee with caramelized fruit and chocolate shavings. For me, this is THE rum profile par excellence. For the price an absolute highlight and a scoop for those who are looking for an unsweetened rum to start or as a sipper.

Very nice rum this is without the sugar. It's like a tropically aged Port Mourant that has had its edges sanded off with some soft Demerara Colum Still. As a blend wonderfully harmonious, soft and yet strong and spicy. At cask strength or at least Navy Strength, this would be an outstanding everyday rum. But even so I will get myself a bottle. Well done DDL!

I love El Dorado Rum. And this is no exception. The nose is very rich: fruity, woody and spicy. tasting it's wood forward and surprisingly sweet considering this new bootling is supposed to be unsweetend

In my rum beginnings about 10 years ago, I inevitably had to go through the El Dorado. Found the 15yo at that time really good. Today, the no longer goes. At least the old sugared. But how is actually the new one, without sugar? I had to try it. Nose: has a good start, but quickly loses power at the back. Stop diluted to 43%! Spicy and slightly woody, immediately caramel and vanilla. Seems sweet. Light aroma of orange and currant. With deep draw come allspice and curry. Goes well, actually. 70Palate: in the following order: thin, spicy-woody, slightly peppery and salty, herbs, vanilla, fat pecan, anise. Herbal, thin. 60Surely better than the old one, but still way too thin. El Dorado could do so much more!

Much better. Much much better than the sweetened variant of earlier times. That's all I want to say.

Super price performance ratio. The new bottling has become super exciting. Hardly any sugar compared to the predecessor. Very pleasant and clean. The demarara style is very nicely recognizable without much schick schnack

I love el dorado and this is a great upgrade from the sugary predecessor. More wood and vanilla coming through, nearly too much wood but it’s balanced ok. I’ve avoided these rums for a few years and pleased to see they’re back with a good upgrade - definitely would recommend and a nice sipper for the £50 bracket.

Finally, the 'almost' unsweetened version of El Dorado 15 in the glass. The nose is pleasant, somewhat one-dimensional and could be a bit more intense. Still pleases me quite well. On the palate, initially a lot of wood and burnt sugar, thus a bit more bitter than hoped for. Later comes ne decent portion of vanilla to it. Considering the price and the good availability, then I must admit that I like the rum very well. As a recommendation for all who can overlook the somewhat prominent bitterness or even like it.

What a pleasant discovery that this 2020 version without sugar! It's everything I love, a really nice dark demerara at a great price. The danger: the rum that is easily sipped every day 😁... My quality/price rum of the year.

Good unsweetened rum for starters!

Beautiful nose dominated by coconut and raisin, coupled with molasses and dark chocolate.In the taste quite woody and spicy, coconut persists and is underpinned by a sweetness of burnt caramel.Very tasty, a few percent more would have harmed him but not taste. Then the alcohol integrated here already only mediocre but if necessary would be too dominant.

The nose has strong dark chocolate notes that dominates but there's also some spice and fruit. The palate is a lot less spiced and chocolate driven than the nose would suggest. A strange kind of licorice and caramel dessert. The finish is quite long, warming. The dark chocolate is back from the nose. A very nice rum to sip. I think that I prefer the 12 year old.

Beautiful on nose, nice balance of spices and woody notes with bittersweet notes on palate. Overall very nice rum.

Typical Guyana. Better than 12 YO but I am not impressed. I find Pussers better as it is more heavy in flavour. You can find raisins here, chocolate and everything else that is typical for Guyana. Oh and I must not forget long finish. Comparison with 15YO they are very similar but 15 is more subtle, better balanced and less harsh otherwise they are almost identic.
27 April 2023
Taste-wise I find it very similar to the 12 year old version, only the flavours are more pronounced and it is a bit drier. Lots of citrus, spice and oak in the aroma. Too much citrus for me and I like the 12 year old version a bit more.

Sweet nose with stone fruits, molasses, and marmalade on toast. Less sweet on the palate with notes of cola, barrel wood, and apricot. Slight tobacco-like edge and a mild spice. Short finish with notes of biscuit. The US release is only 40% ABV and needs to be consumed by itself on a fresh palate; it’s easily overwhelmed by other flavors.

This is something you will offer to a non-initiated into the sacred secrets of rum. It is soft and pleasant. But totally on the safe side. Meaning - no real character and excitement. Tends to become dull. Balanced to perfection, it sits right in the middle between great and terrible. Caramel, spices, wood, something green/herbal - but everything dialed down. Good price/quality ratio though. It is recommended to have some for your guests. They will most probably be excited, unless they are ron acolytes or high priests of rhum
