@Eatmywords  Give a rum like Doorlys a try.  El Dorado has a significant amount of added sugar added after distillation 


As someone who used to shit on DDL for dosing all their rums, I'm VERY happy to report that they reformulated their recipes quite recently and removed most if not all the sugar. The new 15 year is fantastic and a bargain for what it is, and the 21 is delightful. The 12, which was the most heavily sugared, falls kind of flat, and I see why they added so much sugar to it in the past! Also they have a series of single still bottles that as far as I can tell are bone dry. I just wish they were higher than 40% ABV.


Bottom line, Demerara Distillers/El Dorado is actually listening to the rum critics out there
