Very nice report! That sounds like a fun evening indeed.

The El Dorado was also new to me and probably the biggest pleasant surprise of the evening for me. Definitely the winner for value. Makes me want to try their 12 and 15 year rums.
if you liked El Dorado 5, try to get the 8 instead. It's only a few dollars more and even better, same flavor profile but more intense and complex. It's one of my favorite rums for mixing. The 12 I tend to reserve for sipping because it often gets lost in cocktails.
