Best Rum in the World at International Wine & Spirits Challenge
Demerara has established a reputation, over the last 300 years, for producing the best rums in the world. El Dorado 15 Year Old Special Reserve is the finest in a range of Demerara Rums. This supreme product of great distinction has been specially selected and blended to perfection by our master blenders, and aged in oaken casks for 15 years. The unique design of this bottle was inspired by the shape of the old flasks used, over three centuries ago, to ship spirits to the sugar planters in Demerara. In those early days, empty bottles were used to store the Demerara Rum which was produced by the small distilleries attached to the sugar estates.
Attractive, rich copper-amber hue. A complex nose of confectioner's sugar, banana, cedar, and iodine. A silky entry leads to a moderately full-bodied palate of vibrant-yet-refined dry caramel and grilled tropical fruit flavors braced by warm alcohol and firm, smooth oak spice. Somewhat Scotch-like, with subtle peaty overtones.
El Dorado 15yo is a remarkable rum, whose greatest achievement was collecting the Wray & Nephew Trophy for Best Rum in the World at the International Wine & Spirits Challenge for an unprecedented four years running.
