Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A pretty bottle of 1970s design. Vanilla is too much in the fragrance. Pleasure from taste no: alcohol and bitter herbs. The aftertaste does not please, but does not upset. Quality moderate booze.
I'm really not sure if I tried the 7 or 10 yo version (probably 7), but I remember it harsh, not smooth, drinkable in a Cuba Libre yes, but like HC7, not a choice I would repeat if I could have a different one.
Had a very untasteful experience with this one. Not my thing.
Siempre en mi opinión es un ron decente, con un precio contenido menos de 15€, en mi opinión por un poco más está el 15 años que es superior.
Not sure in what form but surely someone at some point added in a mysterious way a lot of vanilla in this one. Not a good sipper, the bottle may tempt someone, but let that be someone else.
Easy to drink. I like sweet scent, makes it more special.
As my opinion, this is more interesting than Havana club or Caney of same ages.
Rum molto gradevole, dal bassissimo costo, consigliato
Find den Rum gut! Ohne Schnickschnack und Gedöns... ein einfacher ehrlicher Rum, perfekt zum mischen!
It’s really nice stuff for this money. The price is close to classic black Bacardi/oak, cheap captain Morgan, but this matusalem 7 is for sure better.
no need to mix if you like clear. Don’t expect something special, when you open the bottle. But as i say, it’s really good for this money.
*Need to compare matusalem 7, 10 and 15 year at the one time.
Buy it for 16,99 euro
I give 5+ for this one
Vulgar but not bad rum. Perfect to mix with cola. Not a bad hangover
Vite bu, vite oublié. Pas écœurant mais seulement si on a que ça a boire.
Tried the Ron Matusalem 23y, 10y and 7y back-to-back. The 23y is much darker in color, semi dark, but the 10y and 7y are very light. Surprisingly light for aged rums. Both the 10y and the 7y have the same smell and flavor profile as the older sibling, but obviously both younger ones are much less matured and developed in the flavor department. The 7y has a very strong alcohol smell and taste to it, much more than the 10y.
Very sweet and easy to drink; very soft afterburn and I personally love it straight at room temperature.
Au nez, une forte senteur de caramel
En bouche, une forte présence de l'alcool malgré les 40 degrés
Finale en bouche assez courte
Ensemble qui manque de finesse sans méchanceté
expected more, dissapointing impression, my opinion - Matusalem 5 years is better
Sweet and vanilla flavored, bit more delicate than the cheaper Matusalems - overall a nice add to a mojito or can of coke, even if not great in total.
I expected more from a 7-year aged rum. Not much taste to it, quite soft, no aftertaste, somewhat boring.
Perfekt att använda som en drickingrediens. Inte någon favorit att avnjuta som en avec men klart en helt ok rom.
Not amazing slight aftervurn... Nice to smell and a bit different to drink but wouldn't go out of my way to buy it
Men lite tunn i smaken. Men den skall inte underskattas. Bra bjudrom.
Suave, this is a word which the cubans use to describe different conditions. The Matusalem 7 is very good rum and a favourite of mine in the last 5-6 years. The taste is sweet and the finish is very soft, but still not as Elexir or something like. Definately my choice when i am out or have guests at home.
Dal corpo rotondo ma non invasivo, il Matusalem 7 lascia assaporare in avangusto note di cacao e tabacco. Retrogusto un po' più ispido e alcolico che permette però di preservare i sentori principali senza "bruciarli". Da gustare liscio con sorsate non eccessivamente masticate.
Very strong and powerful rum.
Soft round smooth attack with powerful long finish.
