As if the 1980 wasn’t incorrect sufficient!


Yesterday, I went face to face with the El Dorado 25 12 months previous from 1980.
That is its brother from 1986. Not a lot else to say.

When the 1980 was executed, they made a brand new one, and that is it.
Hopefully will probably be higher that the 1980.

It begins out in another way, however not higher. There may be merely lacking so much.
Truly the nostril may be very week and never practically typical Demerara.

It comes off manner much less wealthy and full bodied than the 1980, and appears like it’s lacking so much. Simply barely some molasses and dried fruits. First rate oak and tobacco.

Then a whole lot of oily notes, earlier than barely reaching for pencil shavings.
And in the long run a little bit piece of buttered toast.

*sigh* Even worse than the 1980.
Extra sugar, however not skinny watery syrup. It is extra like condensed, macerated black grapes and black berry marmelade. There’s a little liquorice beneath together with some fairly current oaks.

Additionally a little bit of candy oranges and moist tobacco.

After which, on the far again, the juice, dried fruits which might be so acquainted to Demeraras. However manner too distant to really make an affect and even matter.

Quick. Apart from delicate oaken notes, some tannins, and the goddamn sugar bowl.
Not likely one thing to jot down house about.
Ranking and ultimate ideas
Jesus Christ DDL, you’ve got executed it once more. One other solution to spoil historical rums, which may probably have been nice, had they only been bottled sugar free and at cask energy.

I ponder if anyone will each do a factor like that … oh wait … any person (plural) did. And made a few of the most superior rums on the planet. Go determine DDL…

Ranking: 62/100
