Strong yet highly sippable – our favourite combination.
In the 17th century European settlers in Guayana were introduced to sugar cane and they began to distil it when the British laid the foundation for Demerara Rum. Soon each of the estates producing sugar cane started to distil Rum from molasses.
From these producers El Dorado obtained three of the oldest stills, each over 200 years old, and used it to procure versatile, rich and fascinating Rums that bare the heritage, quality and soul of the soil and climate of Guayana.
POW! El Dorado 12 Year Old is a bold and spicy Rum that will be a great addition to everyone's drinks cabinet. Blended from aged Rum aged no less than 12 years, but often more, aged exclusively in Bourbon casks. Raw oak follows through with rich molasses notes that keeps you interested, intrigued and all steeped in production that follows centuries old techniques. A great Rum, strong yet highly sippable – our favourite combination.

Rum used to be accepted as form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Ratings & Reviews
smooth sweet and full bodied with a balance of vanilla and caramel flavors. very warming.
Demerara runs are some of the finest in the world -- as sophisticated and complex as a bourbon or and single malt Scotch. El Dorado and Lemon Hart (both Demerara runs) are two of the finest rum families available. Being a fan of mid-aged rums (yes, you can age rum for too long of a period), El Dorado 12 (& El Dorado 15) sits at the top of the list (along with Ron Abuelo 7, Flor De Cana 12 & 18, Appleton Estate 12 & 21, etc). Distilled from several pot stilled rums, the youngest being 12-years old. E.D. 12 has nice flavor from the American oak casks, which blends well with rich West Indies spices of brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves and molasses...to mention a few. Fresh citrus notes appear in the nose and linger on the palette - particularly orange peel. The rum also has a slight smoky tobacco-ness about it. The tasting profile of El Dorado 12 makes it a terrific rum served neet (add just the slightest dash of water to create heat); and, a fantastic rum for cocktails!
My wife and myself tried this (Zaya is her favorite). She admitted that this was smoother than Zaya. If you are looking for a somewhat sweeter taste profile, you can't go wrong with this one. Must definitely NOT mix! Straight up or on the rocks only!
I'm typically a bourbon guy. This was my first non-Bacardi and coke try.... Wow, I was impressed, neat or on the rocks, can't go wrong. The bottle did not last long. Now in search of my next aged rum experience.
Very smooth
Nice smooth cane sugar molasses with a slight oaky flavor. Enjoy sipping on the rocks
This rum is fantastic on the rocks!
I tried this in a mixed drink...BAD IDEA!!! This rum is better served on the rocks in a tumbler!!! YUMMMMM....
I am not the most eloquent speaker or writer but anyone who likes rum will love El Dorado 12 year. This stuff is like a semi-sweet candy that will take you to your favorite place. I like it best on the Rocks but it is great strait and even in any rum drink such as a Dark and Stormy.
Not a good mixer but ok on the rocks.
very good Rum straight up. perfect mix with Mexican Coke !!!!!
Very smooth sipping rum.
Great rum
Awesome smooth flavor
My first higher end rum experience. Usually I am a bourbon guy but this rum is amazing. Natural sweetness up front, very fruity and smooth. Brown sugar finish.
One of the best aged rums
Super sweet love it
Perfect rum for scotch lover!
Great on its own or as a strong component to a cocktail
