El Dorado 8 Year Rum
8 Years Old
El Dorado // Guyana
Cask Type Aged in American oak barrels
The El Dorado rums are distilled at Demerara Distillers Limited in Guyana from molasses sourced from 100% Demerara sugar. They have acquired quite a few different stills from closed distilleries on the island and use a combination of them for each marque.
The 8 year uses four different types of stills including an Enmore wooden column-still and a two column-metal-Coffey still. The rum is blended.
Light to medium-bodied nose with hints of tobacco mixed with caramel toffee. Faint aroma of dried stone fruits and flambée banana. Soft and faintly sweet mouth-feel with traces of oak and butterscotch. Distinctly smooth.
