Lush tropical fruit and spice nose with hints of honey and dark sugar. Round, mellow, full bodied palate with rich flavours of fruit and spice.
Demerara County, Guyana, has been steeped in the history of sugar and rum production since the 17th century. A hundred years later over 300 sugar estates had their own distillery producing their own signature rums. Through the centuries these estates and distilleries have been amalgamated, but these important marques and the original stills were preserved. Today, Demerara Distillers operates the last remaining distillery in Guyana at Plantation Diamond on the East bank of the Demerara River. Here they have consolidated all the old original stills, marques and traditional skills which make Demerara Rum so distinctive. With its 9 different stills, no other rum distillery in the world offers such a variety and range of over twenty different styles of rum.
That is how the Beverage Tasting Institute of Chicago summed up their appreciation of El Dorado 21 Year Old Special Reserve. Designed for true rum connoisseurs its warm subtlety is best savoured slowly on its own - and shared with a few very special friends. The superb colour and character of this exquisite rum is the creation of our Master Blender. His special recipe blends specially selected rums, oak aged for at least 21 years, from the Enmore wooden Coffey still, the Versailles single wooden pot still and the Albion Savalle still.
