This rum is sweet and compareable to Esclavo XO. They have this mandarine taste in common. It need some time in the glas. Try to hold it longer in your mouth, it will tell you a flavored story :)
The profile: sweet, spicy, burned sugar (dark), mandarine

First you are greeted by some cocoa and burnt sugar in the nose. After some minutes the cocoa goes in the background and you can smell some mandarine behind the caramel.
There is also some earth in the nose.
The taste is a little bit spicy, this intensifies the sweetness and makes it intensive.
If you like oak, mandarine and sweetness this rum is for you.

Smell: cocoa, caramel, dried fruit (raisins), oak, barrel (earth), mandarine, there is some gum in the background (nice)
Taste initial: sweetness, caramel, burned sugar, mandarine
Middle: wood, slight bitterness, spice
Finish: caramel, spice, mandarine, sweetness (milk chocolate maybe)

Typical Oliver and Oliver sherry aftertaste with cherries.

Sweetness: 3.5/5 (it's more intensive because of the spice - could be a 4)
Spice: 3.5/5
Fruit: 3.5/5
Mildness: 4/5
Intensity: 4/5
Value: 4/5
Complexity: 3/5
Experience level: beginner

Well over 1,000 aged dark rums enjoyed and Presidente Marti 23 year from Oliver & Oliver is on my Top 10 list after 15 years of rum tastings. It is superb, so smooth you can't imagine, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors. If you haven't tried yet this Dominican Republic produced but Cuban inspired 23 year Rum, I will guarantee it will set a brand new benchmark for your personal rum list.

In my opinion the best rum of the Dominican Republic. It complies with all the standards of true Caribbean rum. Well balanced taste, beautiful colour and what I like most about its appearance is the viscosity - I love watching the rum as it trickles on the wall of my glass. Definitely a must-try rum. 95%

After trying the 15 and 19 year it was time for the 23! Just a little better everytime you go more old. All three are very nice and not too much difference price-wise. You can't go wrong with either one. Allthough the 23 is the smoothest. Produced by Oliver&Oliver so prepare for a sweeter rum.

Perfect balance between rich body and dim fresh fruity notes

Je to fajn rum, ale pro mou hudu je moc nakouřený. Cítil jsem to takové nauzené jako z udírny a nešlo mi to moc do krku. Jak říkám, rum je to dobrý,ale raději sáhnu po 19Y.

I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did given its score of only 7.9 (as of this review). I generally rate rums about a point below their consensus rating. But I think this is better than its consensus rating!

It's a little on the sweeter side, but that's one reason I like it. Somewhat simple rather than complex, and a bit syrupy, but very tasty. Smells and tastes of molasses, caramel, marzipan, honey, and oak. Easy to drink straight. A solid "9" in my opinion.

I thought I would try this rumas it was on offer, and decided to read the reviews. A nice rum to either drink neat or over ice, that is fairly sweet when sipping. A slightly oaky aroma. Smooth as it goes down without too much burn. I would recommend this and buy it again.

First I thought that it would be some imitation of Diplomatico :)
I didn’t have confidence in this rum, but opposite is true.
Very nice aroma…honey, coffee, wood, little bit fruity.. very nice taste
Perfect rum for sipping, also for rum beginners
