Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
another good sipper, not oversweet.
All these promo stories about onyx and silver make almost mystical atmosphere and black embossed bottle is very impresive. Good gift.
This one started my interest in Rum. Really like the flavor, good on the rocks as well.
availabe in NL since last month. i like the regular imperial so was looking forward to try. put simply, it's well worth the additional money over the imperial. (36 eur vs 22 eur in NL). where the regular has it's flaws you take for granted due to price, the onyx has more to prove. the sweetness in the aftertaste remains but the taste overall is much more in balance. the additional time it spent on the heavily charred whiskey and bourbon barrels makes me think off flor de cana. which is also made of cane juice and matured on Jack Daniels barrels.
Beautiful amber color going on the mohagany. This rum from Barcelo is a new version of the imperial with a filtration made through onyx stones (hence its name) and an aging in three types of barrel containing three types of different whisky or bourbon including Jack Daniel's. The aging in the three types of barrels seems to be the same but I have no more information and also the name of other bourbon. Otherwise, on the nose, we're on classic Barcelo, it's very pastry, caramel, coconut, almond, vanilla, toasted, cherry. In the mouth, the woody arrives with the spices the finish is present but not significant. It's not very long. A classic revisited.
Nice perfect Ron for business meeting. Ey like dry Ron but good taste an perfect body. I like it. Yeah.
I just returned from a trip to La Rommona, and a tour of the Barcelo factory. And discovered his wonderful rum. The extra char in he barrels gives this rum whiskey flavor, with hints of vanilla. Great on the rocks, or with a splash of coke.
Ron dulce excelente para tomarlo en la rocas! Lo recomiendo.
Aromes vanille, amende et un epu se réglisse dans un second temps.
Manque de longueur en bouche.
A lot of coffee, toffi and sugar cane. Marzipan, vanilla and roasted fruits too. Good for ladies, because of the 38% ABV.
Bought it for sipping but found it good for mixing. It tastes a bit strong but has a great smell. A good one but not as i’ve expected.
Got one as a present. Good looking bottle and great sipper
In the nose a lot of cherries, cherry leaves, cherries in chocolate, currant. Taste a lot of mold, barrel and cherry, also leaves and wood. A tan, tea finish. And cherries. Rum for cherry lovers.
The rum was too cold on the first tasting, just arrived in the package.
That's why it was too bitter for me. I also had an expression of cold Guinnes (will never do the same mistake :)
After a new tasting here is my impression:
A lot of oak. There are some similarities to Mount Gay XO. Almost the same nose. MG XO is more spicy in the taste, I like the Barcelo Onyx a little bit more. Very cheap for the price like all Barcelos.
Smell: oak/wood, dry fruits, tropical fruit (banana, peach), caramel, vanilla
Taste initial: oak, caramel, peach, sweet wine
Finish: leather, spice, caramel
Smooth and with better taste and body than regular Imperial.
Denna Dominikanska rom är en rom som borde provas av alla rom älskare. Med denna enorma goda arom och smak.
it is good on ice, you can feel some carmel, vanilla, banana, with english cream, also some kind of fruit. it could be cherry but im not sure. any way nice to collect.
Rund mit dezenter süße. Recht weich, aber auch etwas alkoholisch. Feine Würze. Leider etwas wenig Körper und Tiefe. Im Abgang leicht herb und wärmend.
Similar to the Imperial but has a darker color and a more pronounced oak and vanilla nuances.
Precis lagom söt och fruktig. Karamell och vanilj med tydlig smak av fat. Känner inte alla av något rökigt som andra skriver. Mycket prisvärd!
I bought this because I was trapped at Barcelona Airport, which turns out to have a few less obvious rums. This one is dark, smooth, keeps delivering flavour and not very sweet. These are all positives for me. Very pleased with my purchase
First thing I noticed is that this is a pretty smooth rum. Flavors are a nice caramel and vanilla and for the most part remain subtle. It's very balanced and not that sweet. While I really enjoy this rum, at the price point I would lean towards others that have a bit more character. But if bringing to a party to share with the guys for cigar night, you can't go wrong with this one.
A rich and complex rum! Deep amber colored with an aroma of caramel and so many more ...
Сначала показался так себе но распробовав оказался очень спиртовой, пресное послевкусие. Желания пить его дальше нет никакого. Поэтому моя оценка 6
