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.

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
Thom
Nice smooth cane sugar molasses with a slight oaky flavor. Enjoy sipping on the rocks
Scott
This rum is fantastic on the rocks!
Mike
I tried this in a mixed drink...BAD IDEA!!! This rum is better served on the rocks in a tumbler!!! YUMMMMM....
Ryan
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.
Nicholas

Allen
