I was hesitant to buy a bottle of this, because of the extremely high price of $499 (DrinkUpNY 2016) and because I'm not really a big fan of El Dorado rums. But this one is very good.

I like the 43%abv on this. Good rums always taste better stronger. Smells and tastes of toffee, brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, and vanilla. Smooth, especially for 43%abv.

I rate this at the top of the 9 scale; very good, but just shy of a 10.

Dufter dejligt fuld knald på forskellige smags noter go efter smag som holder længe, men til den pris burde den ikke været så spritet, ikke hvad jeg havde forventet

Really nice candy apple nose. Incredibly smooth, almost no bite and just the right amount of spice. Oaky with slight nut flavour, nice mix of dark berry and molasses.

Had expected a little more for that price. 9.5 would have been the right grade.

So Complex yet so Smooth. Wonderful Stuff! A must have for the top shelf.

This is better than the normal 25 year aged rum wow what flavourings , money well spent ..
Honestly flavours cannot comprehend how good of a rum this is ... El Dorado stands for liquid gold and this is the holy grail ... I would own a 1000 bottles if I could

I never thought I would enjoy a glass as much as the 1980 vintage of the 25 year El Dorado, but this one is right up there. If I had the money I would would drink nothing but this.

This is a truly special rum, and without a doubt the best I've ever had. The presentation of the bottle is already special, matched by a mouth-watering color. The taste is perfect and smooth, with not an ounce of burn. El Dorado has created the perfect rum!

My scoring system (with weights) is as follows:
-Packaging (10%): 10
-Color (20%): 10
-Nose (20%): 8.5
-Palette (25%): 10
-Smoothness (25%): 10

-Total Weighted Score: 9.7 (rounded up to 10 for rumratings.com)

The nose was very good, but to me isn't as flavorful as I'd expect and doesn't reflect the perfection of the taste. Apart from this, it is a perfect rum in every way.
