Crystal clarity belies the aged rum in this frosted bottle. The first aroma instantly conjures images of an overflowing tropical fruit basket. Coconut, pineapple, papaya and guava aromas are painted over more subtle soursop, banana and sugar cane flavors. The smooth entry confirms the slightly sweet, tropical aroma leading to a round body and viscous mouthfeel. Only a second look at the label confirms that this is actually 40% alcohol.
El Dorado Deluxe Silver 6 year old rum finishes like a tropical afternoon rain shower, refreshing and lingering long enough to whet the apetite for more.
Introduced in February 2010 for the Ontario LCBO, this is the latest rum to be released from Demerara Distillers Ltd.
