Default new to my local store

Hi All,

I periodally scan the provincial liquor store website to see if anything new has been added to their inventory, low and behold we have some new treasures to investigate.

They are bringing in something called El Dorado single barrel EHP, and it is $100/bottle. I looked at the demrum website and their is nothing in reference to this product. I was wondering if anyone knows what this is? and more importantly if it might be worth the money.

Also they have added English Harbour 5 y/o, what is the verdict on this?

I have not tasted the ED yet, I believe this is a special bottling of single barrel rum. It is expensive here, too. I would not pass up the English Harbor 5, if the price is fair.
Rum is the answer. What was the question?

I've been told by the Demerara US importer that the El Dorado Single Barrel is quite different from the other blended rums. I believe Paul at IP Bartenders in London posted a review here not long ago.

English Harbor 5 is a pleasant rum indeed. You can read RND's review here.

I've never heard of that bottling od El Dorado before but the English Harbour is good. In BC its about $31 a bottle so it won't break the bank.

The English Harbour 5 is smooth, a touch of sweetness. A very good sipper for my bourbon loving buddies. Here it is always around $20.00 at some store.
