I've had the 12y.o. several times at a bar I frequent and i've also had the 15y.o. there, but I do prefer the 12 as a sipper. The problem, as I mentioned above, is the cost here. Although i'm happy to make one or two cocktails using an expensive bottle of rum it gets to the point where I personally cannot taste the difference in using an expensive rum in a cocktail as opposed to a cheaper, but good quality rum, i.e. Appletons V/X, or Mount Gay Eclipse and i'd rather not waste it that way and prefer to have it as a sipper.
I have had a few bottles of the El Dorado Superior Dark Rum in the past but can honestly say I never noticed any flavours that make a Demerara rum much different to any other. It's time to get a new bottle and do some taste tests.

there is also a 21 year El Dorado,
very nice,
but at 75 to 85 a bottle.
thats a bit pricey for mixing.

I need to get another one for sipping.
but that price tag keeps me from getting one right now.
