So as you know bourbon is king around here, but every once in a while I find a spirit so transcendent it warrants mention. El Dorado is absolutely killing it with their 15 and 21 year rums! The words lush and oak-bomb are the first descriptors that I think of. The rums are rich and decadent without being cloying, a very hard line to walk. Here are my tasting notes for the 21 year:
Pours a beautiful brown-mahogany color with a super thick and viscous texture. On the nose I get aromas of browned butter, dates, raisins, candied yams, wildflower honey, vanilla ice cream and bread pudding. On the palate its very lush and soft with flavors of butterscotch, rice pudding, cream corn, caramel chews, sweet cream and kettle corn. The finish is on the shorter side but its so engaging you immediately want more. Absolutely epic!
Come and get it! Cheers
