What a great presentation! I liked the bottle a lot and I choosed as a birthdaypresent for a friend. The friend was not at home and I couldn't resist not to open the bottle!
A wonderfull amber colour in the glass
Nose: chocolade, dried cherry, vanilla, dates, some spicy hints
Taste: smooth, fruity, vanilla and caramel, but not too sweet. An explosion of taste that make you happy while sipping your glass.
P.S. Don't worry, I bought another bottle to my friend ;-)

Wow, vilken goding.

Här har vi en rom som har rätt nyans, den där mörk röd-bruna färgen som en mörk rom ska ha.

Arom och smakmässigt så har den allt som man vill ha; vanilj, choklad torkade frukter och så finns det även en liten hint av något jordnära.

Kan varmt rekommendera denna.

Under £40 a bottle is great value. Typically Dominican: sweet and buttery with an oaky finish. Tiny bit of burn and not too complex a finish but thoroughly enjoyable.

This is my favorite reminds me of the original Imperial, but with more complex flavor. It stays true to a Rum and does not try to imitate a whisky. Smooth and sweet, much less bite and better flavor to the Regular Imperial well worth the extra cost. Can be Enjoyed Neat.

Mir gefällt der "normale" Imperial schon sehr gut. Dieser ist sogar minimal besser. Ob das an der Edelsteinfiltrierung liegt stelle ich in Frage, aber das Ergebnis weiß zu überzeugen.

Very pleasent rum, perfect after a fine dinner with an espresso. Also has some mineral tone to it, maybe from the onyx stones? I don't know but this is bottle I gladly buy again.

Aroma, taste, and price. Smells great, can be mixed with any soft drinks.

The palette is sweet with butterscotch and nice test

OK sipping rum. Not too sweet although obviously colored with caramel. Resembles Motörhead very much. I would guess it's the same product, but the Onyx is $10 more, which makes it less priceworthy. Doesn't really love up to the exclusive look of the bottle. Another $10 will get you Zacapa which is in another class

Beautiful colours on this one. Tastes great, great on the nose too. Really good value, a must have for day to day sipping :)

Little to much alcohol taste but still good. Good value.

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.

A lot of oak. There are some similarities to Mount Gay XO Triple Cask. 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, mandarine), caramel, vanilla
Taste: oak, caramel, peach, paper, burned sugar
Finish: leather, spice, wet barrel, dark fruit
Aftertaste: wood/wet barrel and caramel

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruit: 2/5
Spice: 2/5
Mildness: 4/5

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.

Posted 5 months ago by Pluring from Sweden with 8 ratings

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
