Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Matusalem Gran Reserva 23-year rum is the premium version of the Matusalem company's rum, aged an average of 23 years and distilled from molasses using the traditional solera process.
Well it's better than its younger brother but its just not me. To dry for my taste.
But a little too dry for my taste. Good flavour but not much aftertaste. Very nice Smell.
This is a nice rum with notes of toffee and touch of banana. The problem is it lack that X factor to make it stand out from the pack. The small thing which makes you remember it long after the glass is empty. I would recommend to take quite big sips, as that allows you to get a better taste of the different notes.
A very drinkable rum but not as complex or sweet as one could expect for a "23" year old rum.
Bon... mais meilleur avec de la glace !
Bon rhum pour découvrir. Très "vanille, caramel" rhum très agréable !
Sweet tropical fruit on the nose, otherwise fairly standard dry aged rum with wooden barrel notes.
Good sipping rum, a little strong in the start but smooth at the finish.
It is an OK rum but for my taste... My aspects ware high about the quality about this rum!
Good rum. Works well straight or in any rum flavoured drink.
It tries to emulate Zacapa 23. Same method, same years but different result. Good but nothing special. its vote should be 6,5
hvis det skulle være matusalems svar, på en modstander til zacapa og ligende så er den ikke lige i øjet.
men en ok rom og så kommer den i fed indpakning :)
This is a rum that I usually don't offer to ladies. Strong oak flavor, a bit stronger nose. My brother who loves whiskey loves this one!
Nothing bad in this rum, but it is quite simple and plain.
Gus desavarsit, se simte vechimea dar nu impresioneaza cu aromele. Trebuie lasat sa se linisteasca. Se simte prea tare alcoolul din el. Are nuante suave de caramel, lemn si citrice. Din punctul meu de vedere este prea dur si prea scump.
Sehr angenehmer Ron.
In der Nase feine Holznoten, Karamell und Kakau.
im Gaumen etwas scharf, nicht so süss wie der 15-year, Karamell, Vanille.
Schöner langanhaltender Abgang mit nachklingender süsse.
Ein Ron für jeden Tag.
Very pleasant Ron.
In the nose fine wood notes, caramel and kakau.
Slightly spicy in the palate, not as sweet as the 15-year, caramel, vanilla.
Beautiful long-lasting finish with a sweetish aftertaste.
A Ron for every day.
Tasted this following a meal in a Peruvian restaurant in Belgium, together with the Rum Nation Panama 23yr. and the Millonario XO. Now, besides eating some well seasoned Peruvian dishes, I had also consumed a significant amount of wine before we got to the rum, so I couldn't taste too critically, but I can say the Matusalem ranked last, well behind the Nation Panama and the Millonario. Slighty dissapointing.
Dry but not too much. Weak body and short aftertaste but still much better than Matusalem 15y
Der er nu noget over Matusalems flasker, som jeg som samler ikke kan modstå. Det er nu sådan at selv min højt elskede kone er med på samler vognen og dermed er med til at udvælge de rom vi skal have :-)
Esperaba más de este ron, no es malo sin embargo la relación de precio y sabor no es la mejor.
Pretty good rum, but for the price there are in my opinion better choices.
Got this rum as a christmas gift. Nice rum in the mid-range. Easy drinkable, the nose not very impressive. Taste, average but reasonably nice. In general not too bad but also not special. Same goes for the bottle.
Very gentle vanilla nose and also gentle smooth vanilla body. Not very sweet and complex body, but decent gentle taste. I would prefer Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva to this one... Some caramel and smoke scents as well. Nice aftertaste where the vanilla body is slowly fading out with some sweetness. Not too aggressive abv.
