El Dorado Grand Special Reserve Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 16, 2016

poster (6)El Dorado Rum has recently announced the release of a new special edition rum which celebrates the 50th Year Anniversary of Guyana’s Independence from Britain.

This Anniversary Rum is produced from a blend of rums aged 33 to 50 years, and finished with a soupcon of aged pot still rums surviving from El Dorado’s heritage Double Wooden Pot and a since-discontinued John Dore Copper Kettle stills.

The completed rum is bottled at 43 % alcohol by volume and presented in a distinctive crystal decanter adorned by an 18 carat gold collectible medallion. Only 600 bottles will be produced, each individually signed and numbered by the El Dorado Master Blender.

According to the producer’s tasting notes:

The rum is full-bodied and complex with notes of coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate and a hint of orange peel.

The Eldorado Grand Special Reserve is already available in Ontario for $3500.00 per 750 ml bottle.

Of course a media sample of this special rum is on its way to me, and I will have a full review ready in a few weeks.

Happy 50th Anniversary to the people of Guyana!

  1. I spoke to someone who got to taste this at an event in Ontario ($130/oz?!) and he said it was excellent. Can’t wait for your review!

    The El Dorado Special Reserve is my favourite next to the Don Papa (Philippines).

    • I love all thre Special Reserve Rums, the 12 the 15 and especially the 21. This makes me super excited for the Grand Special Reserve! 😉
