El Dorado rum 5 YO

The 5 Year Old El Dorado Rum is a blend of rums aged for a minimum of five years.
This blend consists of rums produced on the Wooden Continuous Coffey Still – former Enmore Estate, French Continuous Savalle Still – former Uitvlugt Estate and from rums produced on a Continuous Coffey Still.
The Wooden Continuous Coffey Still originates from the Enmore Sugar Factory, founded nearly 200 years ago by Edward Henry Porter. This Wooden Still is now located at the Diamond Distillery – home of the El Dorado Rums.
The rum mark made on the Wooden Continuous Coffey Still is referred to as “Enmore” or “EHP” this after Mr. Edward Henry Porter.
The Continuous Savalle Still originates from the former Uitvlugt Rum Distillery. This truly versatile still is now located at the Diamond Distillery and has the capability to produce nine different rum marks by using different operational settings. One of these marks is used in the end of the Five Year Old El Dorado Rum.

The rums are aged in oak barrels in Guyana (South-America) with its ideal climate for ageing.
At temperatures of 30 – 34 degrees Celsius the oxidation process is more rapid and creates delicate aromas.
Under these conditions, unwanted congeners are absorbed easily by the oak wood.
The loss of these congeners is called mellowing and this process continues for as long as the rum is in direct contact with wood.
Most of the rums are stored in used Bourbon barrels sometimes re-charred on the inside to help impart more of the character from the wood.

Tasting Notes:
The Judges at the Chicago Beverage Tasting Institute described the El Dorado 5 Year Old as “Amber. Spirity, dried tropical fruit nose. A vibrant entry leads to an evolving palate of caramel, fruit, toasted coconut and American Oak notes fading into a vanilla tinted glow. Alcohol is present but supportive and provides a balancing bite on the finish. Remarkably developed and complex for a relatively young rum.”

Bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.
Stylish bottle 0.7 l.
