El Dorado Spiced Rum

distilled by Demerara Distillers Ltd - Guyana

label image
Straw / yellow, Spiced-flavored rum distilled from molasses. Aged in used whisky and bourbon barrels.

Hints of cinnamon, clove and citrus in the nose carry though to the initial taste. The initial taste quickly fades to a slightly viscous quality in the body of this spiced rum. There is a pleasant lack of sweetness that allows the orange peel, clove, cinnamon and viscous coconut to come through in the end of the body and into the lingering finish.

The first layer of the finish is dominated by dry cinnamon bark which is quicly replaced by clove and then the slightly acidic citrus rind flavor of orange, tangerine and cooked grapefruit finally yielding to the slightly oily taste of roasted coconut.

Blended with aged rum, the spice is well integrated into the bottled product, but there is no doubt that this is spiced rum.

 

Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
Arctic Wolf's review    

I was privileged recently when I received an invite to visit the facilities of Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) in Guyana, South America. During this visit I was given a complete tour of the Diamond Distillery where DDL’s famous El Dorado Rums are produced. This included a tour of the old plant which houses the heritage stills (famous stills from various estates in Guyana some as old as 250 years, all working and still producing rum), and I saw DDL’s new high-capacity four-column distillation plant which is now in operation.

During this trip, I also was able to taste the entire line of El Dorado rums including the new El Dorado Spiced Rum. In fact at the guest house where I was staying, a full bottle of the El Dorado Spiced (and a few others as well) were left for our small Canadian group to enjoy each evening. I snapped a nice picture of the bottle while I was there and spent a little time gathering some tasting notes.
