70cl Bottle £76.73 In Stock
Description: A Rum of supreme quality. El Dorado 21 year old is an exquisite rum.
In this blend of select aged rums, each of the constituent rums is at least 21 years old. Some are much older and can be as old as 25 years. To achieve the superb colour, smooth taste and full fragrant aroma, the rums are matured in 45 gallon oak casks in an ideal natural climate for ageing - within six degrees of the equator on the tropical north coast of South America, blended to perfection by master blenders.
This rum is described as having an inviting, rich yet caramel hue.
A nose with a degree of complexity allowing one to appreciate the subtle confectioned nuances to linger.
The first taste is warm yet silky with a full bodied rich mouth feel. The warmth of alcohol is supported by fine, smooth yet integrated oak allowing the tropical flavours to permeate and take you to a long pleasurable finish. This is designed for the connoisseur of rums who has the time to indulge and appreciate the wonders of this creation.
This drink is best savoured on its own. 21 years in the making it deserves time and indulgence.
This glorious, full bodied rum of exquisite taste and character is specially and carefully packaged in a gift box and in a bottle inspired by the flasks used by the sugar planters many centuries ago on the banks of the Demerara river, ABV 43%.
The El Dorado 21 Year Old rum was awarded the silver medal at the 2003 Internationally Wine and Spirit Competition in London.

In 1860 Demerara Distillers Europe, then under its former name Breitenstein Products, began trading in tropical products. From the former Dutch East Indies they imported cane sugar and coffee intended for the Dutch market. Thanks to Breitenstein's extensive knowledge of the export country and the maintenance of good relations, their activities soon became a great success.
Beginning of 2003 the company name Breitenstein Products was changed into Demerara Distillers Europe to emphasize the international character of the operations of the company and the bond with the holding company Demerara Distillers in South America. The company now deals in ingredients, products and brands. Their suppliers are located in the tropics and subtropics and their customers in Europe. The company now deals in a full range of rum.
El Dorado consider a knowledge of the production country and its products essential to their activities. Staff are fascinated by the tropics and subtropics and know the products, suppliers and customers inside-out. Good relations in the producing country as well as the purchasing country and an understanding of their needs are essential. It is this philosophy that has made El Dorado's 140 years of success possible.
