Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
I can not understand why this is not more popular..
Much milder than normal Barcelo imperial and tasteful.
On the palate, butterly honey, caramel and some vanilla.
It is defferent from "premium blend 30 aniversary" but this is amazing one.
Not too sweet, strong flavour of oak (almost too much). Needs to rest in the glass. Otherwise a really good rum from Barcelo, well worth the money
The Barcelo Imperial Onyx owes its name to the filtering proces through onyx stones. Before that it is aged for 10 years in charred bourbon casks. This gives the rum a great complexity, which is very pleasant.
It's got a beautiful mahogany colour and a sweet and fruity nose. The fruit comes back in the tasting, together with some gentle oak. The sweetness is not overpowering the rest of the flavour. It is finished with a great fruity aftertase, which stays in the mouth pleasantly long.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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 ;-)
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.
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.
Precis lagom söt och fruktig. Karamell och vanilj med tydlig smak av fat. Känner inte alla av något rökigt som andra skriver. Mycket prisvärd!
