El Dorado 5 Year Old Rum is a remarkably developed and complex medium-aged rum that has a distinctive delicate taste and is aged for a minimum of 5 years in bourbon oak barrels. Its unique character comes from the skillful blending of traditional aged rums from the Uitvlugt Savalle Still and the Enmore wooden Coffey Still. Exceptionally versatile, it can be enjoyed straight, on the rocks or for creating premium cocktails. Lively with a dried tropical fruit nose with aromas of caramel, butterscotch and molasses. A vibrant spicy entry leads to an evolving palate of fruit, caramel and toasted coconut, fading to a vanilla-tinted glow.
American oak barrels play host to Plantation 5YO Rum, where it ages for three to four years. Next, a woody and nutmeg palette is drawn out in Ferrand French oak casks as the rum continues to mature for one to two years. The result is a subtle and tropical Barbadian style rum, excellent for aperitifs or classic cocktails like the Mai Tai.
