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.
I expected a lot of this 23 years but I am very disappointed. The nose is round with caramel , brown sugar, vanilla, and for 23 years the oak is not very present. The palate is strong without complexity and does not have much length. Snif !
Very well balanced, bit more alcoholic flavor, dark after taste
I think this is good rum.
However, it get too smooth and gets bored.
I like Matusalem 15year more than this.
Tried this at the famous Rum Bar in the beautiful Whitsundays in North Queensland. Lighter than I imagined so not much caramel colouring.. strong alcohol smell at first but settled down after 10 minutes. Dryish , tastes of vanilla , almond or marzipan , brown sugar and a bit of citrus.. not much wood and a shortish ending. Better than the 15 but still a bit dull although worth a try !
Sweet and fruity nice and smooth. A lot nicer than the 15. A really well rounded solera
A bit more sweet than the zacapa but in a company with friends that does'nt usually drink rum, this would be the choice
Den er rimelig til prisen men super begejstret er jeg nu ikke for den er lidt før sprittet.
Possibly some orange and vanilla in the scent. Light vanilla, cinnamon and maybe a little tobacco in flavor.
I found this rum boring, lack of taste and smell, would never buy this rum my self.
Très bon rhum, plus sec que sucré, puissant, très agréable à boire
This one is ok. Not to sweet. Bit dry. Also good with cola ;)
Sweet tropical fruit on the nose, otherwise fairly standard dry aged rum with wooden barrel notes.
Za ty penize si umim koupit daleko lepsi. Neurazi ale nadseni ve me nevyvolal.
Ein solider Kandidat
Nichts überwältigendes aber gutes Mittelmaß
Nice ron,interesting taste of little cherry and cask. Good for drink with guys.
Just emptied my bottle. need absolutely A new one!
Au Nez il est complexe avec des notes de bois. En bouche on perçois aussi des notes boisées accompagnées de noisette et d’amandes grillées. La finale est longue, ce rhum est superbe. Semblable au zacapa 23 ans mais le zacapa est mieux. Tres bon, je le conseille.
Strong flavor yet subtle complexity. Dominican but originally from Cuba I think. Blend of old and new vintages.
Dry but not too much. Weak body and short aftertaste but still much better than Matusalem 15y
Excelente presentación, intenso color, olor y textura.
De sabor amaderado que nos permite disfrutar de sus 23 años de añejamirnto.
I did really like this rhum. Not too sweet on to my taste. Dryied fruits, creamy butterscotch and marchmallow.
Really good rhum after a good dinner. Good for pairing a dark sigar!
It's a nice rum with a balanced taste. It's smooth, sweet but not too sweet, no afterburn. All good, but not worth the price of almost 60 euro. You can get some better and more complex rums for that price or less.
Kan varmt anbefales. Smag af vanilje og karamel. Ikke så sprittet som 15 års.
Duft af vanilje og karamel. Lidt "varm" i smagen til at starte med, men vaniljen finder vej sammen med lidt smag af fad. En dejlig rom, som heldigvis ikke er for sød, og ikke så sprittet som sin lillebror på 15. En pris på 400 kan måske diskuteres.
