Here we recommend rums that have been sweetened with the addition of aged sugar syrup, sweet wines or other sweetening agents to round off the rum’s flavour. Europe allows a maximum of 20grms of sugar per litre of alcohol to be added to rum.
The Diamond Distillery on the banks of the Demerara river in Guyana is world famous for their timeless distillery. With their collection of rare stills including 3 rare wooden stills, they can make a variety of rums ranging from very light to full bodied. The El Dorado 15 is a true 15-year-old thus has been laid down in oak barrels for at least 15 years then artfully blended using the Enmore and Diamond Coffey Stills, the Port Mourant Double Wooden Pot Still and the Versailles Single Wooden Pot Still.
Serving Suggestions: A classic full bodied “dessert” rum, perfect neat, as a digestif or in a classic “after dinner” drink such as an old fashion. Try warming a brandy glass and serving this rum neat with a twist of orange peel after a big meal.
