El Dorado 12 Year Demerara Rum

Produced by Demerara Distillers Ltd, El Dorado 12 Demerara rum is in the middle of the El Dorado range.  This is a fantastic value for a complex rum made partially from distallates coming from wooden stills.  The age specified on El Dorado rums is the minimum age of the rums used in the blend.  Some of the rums can be quite a bit older.

Orange-amber color. Brown sugar, burnt orange, tobacco, and damp earth in the nose. Opens steadily into a medium body with honeyed, smoky sweetness, though lighter and not as sweet as the bouquet suggests. Followed by minerally acidity and tingling heat. The finish lasts about a minute. A substantial effort in the traditional earthy, smoky Demerara style. Tasted 8/15/2008.
