Default Meet Carl Kanto......do try

Carl,

Thanks for your illuminating presentation yesterday...loved it. Real pleasure to finally meet you in the flesh - you have an amazing range of rums and your passion for them is obvious.

And tasting the El Dorado 25 was one of the highlights of my day/week/year

And sincereously, what do you think about it?
Can you report a little review about your feelings?

For example I consider Eldorado 21 not so fine as 15 is.
But I have the strange feeling to consider blue labeled rum as commercial operations/edition...

Is the 25y a really great great great Rum? I really hope you reply yes...

Daniele, sorry I did not respond to yo earlier. And thanks Paulipbartender, it makes your day when someone pays you such compliments.
We make some fantastic rums that are totally different from each other. Again preference to rums is dependent on the individual. Even though we produce the world best rum my preference is the El Dorado 12 years old. It has a nose like Christmas fruit cake or a good Gyanese Christmas black cake. This nose is all fruity and inviting, appealing to the palate and making you want to drink. It has a big mouth feel that stays there after it gone to give you long after enjoyment. Some individuals reading my discription my diagree and prefer th 15 or the 21. It is all a matter of persona preference.
Our 3 years cask aged is one of the best thing to happen to white rum.

I'll second that. I was calling on the Hula Tiki Bar and Grill in Santa Cruz, CA on Thursday and they were blown away by the nose, flavor, quality and price of that rum.

I am looking forward to tasting the 3. I can't wait to taste it in some of my favorite cocktails. I can never make up my mind wether I like the 12 or the
15 better. The 21 stands on its own, it carries such a different profile I don't compare it to the others. I hope to taste the 25 at some point.

What is fantastic about this rum is that generally when you mention white rum the response is turning up of noses. Not this one. I know of people who have indicated that they can sip this rum and feel comfortable. Infact no one wants to taste white rum and I have had almost everyone visiting our distillery taste this rum and the responses were "whow, this is different, this is not the white rum we know". In cocktails it gives you a much more rounded drink. Generally in an "ordinary" white rum cocktail such as a mojito the rum tends to rush at you up front with your fruit flavour lagging behind. With the 3years old the rum sits in the cocktail and stays with your fruit flavours hence a round smooth drink. That's the idea of a cocktail, ingredients that compliment and enhance each other
