We finally got a bottle of the El Dorado 15 year Rum and several other brands too. So one night after dinner we four SWIMAPAL, S-i-L, B-i-L and me, sat down to do Rum Taste Test.
Bacardi Anejo or some such
A rum from Nicaragua, begins with a C ( can't fine my notes right now,sigh)
Myers Special Dark
about 3 others.
The opinion of all of us was that the....Drum Roll Here Please.
The rum from Nicaragua was tops followed at some distance bye the Myers Special and bringing up the far far rear was that El Dorado.
Too sharp, not enough flavour, a big disappointment. The ladies did not care for regular Myers, though SWIMPAL does drink it from time to time. But sorry to say no one really thought much of El Dorado and at $40 USD for the bottle that is going to be some expensive hot buttered rum this winter.
I will get the full correct name of the Nicaraguan stuff and add it to the thread later today.
And so it goes.
