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.
Amazing nose, a creamy vanilla with hazelnut - one of the best out there. Smooth flavor of subtle vanilla and a little spice. Limited molasses comes through, almost a 'pure' taste... would have liked a little more to come through. The finish is strikingly long almost like a mild pop-rocks spice, quite pleasant.
This is a fine rum, good taste, It is a solid one.
SImply the best. Tasted fruits, vanilla, caramel, dark-chocolate, ect...
trully an experience.
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 :)
I never forgot the good sensation in my body when I tasted for the first time Matusalem Gran Reserva 23-Years. With a piece of black-chocolate, is great. For those like me who love aged rums, this one is a must have!
This is a complicated one. Very very dry and too short on the tongue. Let it develop in the glas for a few minutes to get at least some of the dry fruit flavours. Too expensive.
Encore un rhum bien fait. Gout caramel chocolat. C'est facile, abordable
This is a very nice and "fruity"rum.
It's a bit dry with a bite which disapeers if you let the rum breathe a bit in the glass.
Nice notes of banana in it.
I think I will be enjoying this rum in the summer with a big cube of ice in it.
a avoir gouté au moins une fois...
vraiment plaisant, même s'il n'a pas la longueur en bouche attendue.
Havde dog forventet lidt mere fra en 23 års. Flasken pynter i samlingen og den er absolut en god rom.
A very drinkable rum but not as complex or sweet as one could expect for a "23" year old rum.
It tries to emulate Zacapa 23. Same method, same years but different result. Good but nothing special. its vote should be 6,5
Great looking,heavy bottle,much better then the 15yo. Should have a place in your premium rum collection
If you pop the cork and start sniffing, the strength of the spirit is quite overwelming. But if you let it breath for a minute or two, the caramel/vanilla really comes through. Quite a strong rum, with a bit of bite, but in a good way. Nice legs in the glass and a beautiful bottle. A little dry, but a nice sipping rum.
Good sipping rum, a little strong in the start but smooth at the finish.
Had heard a lot of bad reviews on this one, but decided to try it myself. Very nice nose and sweet tones. Easy to drink and smooth
rhum équilibré très parfumé, à déguster en début d'apéro pour en saisir toute la saveur !!
Super nose, dry yet balanced rom. Closes very soft even though its not a sweet rum. 5/10 sweetness. Interesting flavours, lacks a bit in depth. And a cool bottle.
Matusalem Gran Reserva 23 Rum er en ok rom, men den når ikke Ron Zacapa 23, til sokkeholderne og den bliver ikke genkøbt.
Avec de bons souvenirs du 15ans, je me dis que le 23 doit être encore bien meilleur. Mais désillusion, j'ai beau réessayer, je ne lui trouve rien d’exceptionnel. Pour un 23ans ses arômes sont fins, mais trop légers et écrasés par l'alcool.
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.
But a little too dry for my taste. Good flavour but not much aftertaste. Very nice Smell.
Well it's better than its younger brother but its just not me. To dry for my taste.
This decent sipping rum comes in a really nice bottle. It is well balanced and combines a pleasant sweetness with hints of woods. Unfortunately the Matusalem lacks complexity and isn't surprising at any time.
