Watch: Guests get a taste of Demerara at El Dorado rum tasting

Rum aficionados were specially invited to taste the luxury range of El Dorado Demerara Rum with Master Distiller Shaun Caleb.

The event, which was hosted last Thursday at the Old Havana Lounge in Port of Spain, allowed guests to sample from the brand's extensive line of aged rums, starting from three to 50 years.

As Master Distiller, Caleb manages the distilling and aging process for the distinctive range of rums for El Dorado. Known for his impeccable work ethic, his zeal and intense focus on the chemical and sensory profiles of the rums coming from the different formats of distillation is quite apparent. 

Often sampling dozens of rums in a given day, he has acquired a knack for assessing the depth and organolpetic qualities of the fresh rums, long before the world sees the final aged and blended product in the bottle. 

Caleb spent the evening walking guests through the history and distilling process of El Dorado Demerara Rum, giving them a better understanding and appreciation for the award-winning rum.
