This is a premium rum with a premium price but it's not that great and sadly disappointed ... This did not taste like a 30 year rum at all
Fin nok. Rom men vil nok vælge en anden i samme pris niveau eller under
Ich finde es wirklich interessant was hier einige Leute schreiben. "Ein 30 jähriger Rum" Mitnichten; es ist das 30-jährige Jubliäum zu dessen Anlass dieser Rum aufgelegt wurde.
Ein echter Barcelo. Ich hatte das Vergnügen, den 21 Premium zu besitzen. Dieser war noch eine Nuance besser, doch muss sich der 30er nicht verstecken.
Zum Geschmack schließe ich mich meinen Vorkommentatoren an. Er ist süß vom Geschmack, mit Noten von Karamell und einem langen Abgang. Allerdings nichts für Anfänger.
Alles in allem ein hervorragender Rum; für die 10 hat es nicht ganz gereicht (die hatte der 21er verdient). Ich denke dass dieser Rum aufgrund der Sonderedition auch als Sammelobjekt Potential hat.
si te gustan los barcelo definitibamente este es el rey,hay q dejarlo reposar en la copa un tiempo para q afloren sus aromas afrutados
Sin duda una edición especial bien lograda, sin perder los sabores de los rones Barcelo, dulce, vainilla, caramelo. Excelente Ron Premium
Le prix pour l'exception
Mais un excellent produit
I was very surprised by the smell. It almost smelt like fresh air with a hint of spices. Really loved smelling this rum
The taste is a bit sweet, a little spicy, and with a good burn. But not in any way unpleasant on the tongue.
I loved it.
Great blended rhum. Very long lasting taste. Better for after dinner.
I love rum! Dark, sweet, smooth rum! I really do. And this rum on paper has everything needed to satisfy me, but it really doesnt...
Not a rum for beginners , it can be considered too strong or aggressive for some people because of their strong aromas. Contrary to what many think, is not a 30 years rum , but about 10 years (not much ) , was released to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the Rum Imperial and demands a knowledge on rums to enjoy the same . Perfect companion for good cigars and is the current owner of the title of world's best rum, not easy to find nor cheap , because I think that only produce about 7,000 bottles a year, not sure. It is amazing and totaly worth it!
Heb het geluk gehad om deze rum te mogen proeven. Een heel zachte en sweet van smaak caramel en vanille
Wesentlich besser als der imperial 16 jahre. Nicht so würzig/scharf wie der 16 jährige
I saw this one in Denmark to a heavy price! Went to the border and gave ½ price :) LOVE IT
Not bad, but mostly sweet (caramel). And to be honest, for the (not so sweet) price and high age of this rum I expected a bit more (complexity).
The barcelo imperial was my first proper rum so I just had to get this.
A few people have commented on the bottle/packaging being cool but I think it is poor. The plastic bit in the middle fell off when I first opened it and the (artificial) cork is incredibly difficult to open (just took me literally 5mins to ease off!). I guess the tin is cool but I make a rule of never keeping them to optimise space on my shelf. I got this for about £80 from vinusvinis if I'd paid the £200 some UK websites are advertising it for I wouldn't be happy!
So it's lost a mark for packaging.
Vegetal nose and a bit of sugar but not lots.
Beautiful dark brown colour.
Some sugar but then lots of odd chemicals. Green grass and petrol?
The grass taste lingers for some time. And then an almost pleasant burn.
Just tasted back to back with the imperial and that is much better. Despite being a fraction of the price.
By no means a bad rum. Quite sweet with some oak and roasted nuts. It is really overpriced in Denmark, but you can get it elsewhere for less than 100 Euros, and then the deal is fair. But you can still find more interesting rums around at that price.
Denne rom havde jeg forventet mig meget af, når man taget prisen på 2250 kr. i betragtning, så burde den efter min smag være meget bedre.
En ellers meget blød og rund rom som desværre forsvinder hurtigt i munden.
Enjoyable, but when you consider the price there are definitely some better choices.
Just like its younger cousin the anejo, this more exclusive product excells in holding back overt sweetness and instead putting herbal, spicy and nutty qualities. it has a light quality that I actually like, making it lively. Not as oaky as one might have thought for such old rum, but still with a vrty smotth and balanced mix of the aforementioned tastes.
Good enough to taste it straight. But must be cold for doing so.
Très bon rhum fortement ambré (30 ans!), avec un côté sucre de canne/caramel assez marqué. Rond et équilibré, il ne lui manque pas grand-chose pour être un coup de coeur (son prix trop élevé sans doute).
There is a fair nose.. Some pure alcohol in it.. The taste is strong and have some nice tones.. But the finish is whats kills it for me.. Pure alcohol and the finish fades down to cheap moonshine.. Not much sweetness in it..
The nose is classic dominican and somewhat neutral in that regard. Light oak, sweet toffee and a hint of banana rise from the glass. The body and taste is medium full, soft and a little oily with deep notes of toffee, some molasse and light oaky spices. The finish is long, clean and smooth. Altogether it reminds me of a slightly more full version of the Zacapa XO. It's good but i am letting my rating reflect a pretty hefty overpricing.
This might be one of the nicest presentations I have ever seen in a room bottle, unfortunately the rum was a bit of a let down. Good but not great for an aged rum.
If you are used to and appreciate the Barcelo Imperial you will not be surpised by the 30 anniversario blend.
The bottle is very nice, mine came with a wooden stand in a metal box.
The smell is appealing, the taste is good (very Barcelo type) but it goes too fast away, there is nearly no after taste.
For a bottled priced in the 100€ I am left a bit disapointed, compared to the Barcelo Imperial priced one third of the price, I don't really find the added value except in the look of the bottle.
You might want to give it some time once served in the glass to warm up a little as I find it developing more taste (and better) after a few minutes in the glass.
