El Dorado 12 year old.
Guana only has one distillery now; The Diamond Distillery, and all the stills from the other distilleries were moved here. El Dorado 12 is a blend of rums distilled from a selection of the different original stills..
A deep glossy mahogany. Very slow legs indicate a thick spirit
Demerara brown sugar. Orange flavoured boiled sweets. An explosion of vanilla, oak and dairy fudge.
Oak at the front here. Tangy spice of Sliced orange dipped in cinnamon surrounded followed by Cigars and a chewy nuttiness like marizpan both in the flavour and the texture.
A medium finish with sweet orange Cough medicine.
