When you open the bottle of the molasses based El Dorado 8 year old Rum fragrant notes of delicate vanilla, caramel toffee and tropical fruit first come to the fore.

A long finish deepened by this flavor composition ends with soft and sweet strikes. Molasses is the thick, brown and sticky by-product of sugar production.
El Dorados history dates all the way back to the 17th century. At the time countless sugar mills were established in Guyana, of which a large number were operated under the leadership of Englishmen. Almost every company had its own Rum distillery whose Rums were mainly exported to England. Two sugar factories merged in 1976 and became known as the Demerara Distillers Ltd. The company focused on the production of quality Rum - and with great success. El Dorado has been bottling very popular Rums for a long time, including the superb El Dorado 8 year old Rum.
In the preparation of the exceptional medium-bodied El Dorado 8 year old Rum, the distillate passes through at least four different Stills which include the original Woody Coffey Still Enmore and the Double-Wooden-pot still from Port Mourant which are both over 200 years old. This tasty premium Rum is aged at least 8 years in selected oak barrels - which previously housed whiskey and bourbon - in which it assumes its unique taste and its rich gold-bright color.
The El Dorado 8 year old Rum is presented in a sexy wide shouldered bottle which makes it easy to hold and pour and to store. The attractive label is elegant and sets it apart from other Rums. This award-winning and affordable Rum makes an awesome addition to a Rum collection.
