Over 300 Guyanese sugar cane producers got a bit carried away and formed a co-operative.
 
El Dorado Rum is also known as the ‘Liquid Gold of Guyana’. Demerara Distillers started in 1670 when every sugar estate in Guyana had its own Rum still and a group of sugar cane producers formed an exporting co-operative. This early production of Rum for sailors was the beginning of the Demerara. Guyana had as many as 300 producers at any given time over the years.
 
El Dorado (the name of an Indian chief who founded the golden city, according to the legend) 21 Year Old Rum uses a selected blend of Rums from their World-famous stills, two of them – the Enmore (wooden Coffey still) and the Versailles (single wooden pot still) – are the World’s only functioning wooden stills. The El Dorado range is so distinctive because of this heritage.
 
All the Rums in the blend have been aged at temperatures of 30°C-34°C in oak at least 21 years, making this one of the oldest production Rums in the world. This age statement is quite different to those Rums which feature a solera style age statement which highlights the oldest Rum in the blend and usually includes a high percentage of Rum which is much younger in the blend. That makes a big difference!

robert
robert,
one of the best rums I have ever had. extremely smooth with light sweetness. if you don't watch out this could become an expensive habit.
Wade
Wade,
Smooth delicious caramel flavor. Not recommended with Coke. The caramel flavor clash. It's best neat or on rocks.
Enoch
Enoch,
Sweet but "masculine," this is a delicate and smooth glass with just the right amount of spice, and the finish is gentle but leathery. A great drink to share with the guys during poker night.

Hands down the best Rum I've ever tried. Neat all the way.
Pierce
Pierce,
Sweet, smooth, and very, very dark. Has a little burn going down almost reminiscent of a whiskey, but the brown sugar sweetness of a truly great rum.
Don
Don,
A bit too "fruity" in taste for me. It was smooth but as the drink extended- the fruit taste (apples) came through more and more.
