Quick Sips: Citrus fruit and chocolate gently rise off the glass. The 15 year lacks the caramel gasoline fragrances found in so many of her peers. Almonds, tobacco, dark chocolate, and espresso coffee beans glide off the tongue. Then, ripe citrus takes hold and provides a smooth finish as the other flavors dissipate.
Backstory: (via distiller) El Dorado 15 Year Old Special Reserve is viewed as a fine, cognac-like rum possessing the most intriguing and complex character in its class. Perfect for long sipping, straight or on the rocks. A Classic!
A combination of specially selected aged rums, some as old as 25 years, from the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills, the Port Mourant double wooden pot still and the Versailles single wooden pot still, it is blended to perfection and aged in old bourbon oak casks.
