Recommendable to most
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.
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.
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.
This is one of the smoothest, most balanced and flavoursome rums I have in my collection. I love Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, and this is absolutely on par. The aftertaste is smooth and sweet, the initial taste is sweet and mellow, and the smell is a balanced chocolate, light smoke and berries.
Gets an extra point for presentation and price.. Nice fruity , caramel nose upon pouring. Dark mahogany colour suggesting added caramel. Smoother than the original with a bit less bite, warm in the mouth but as with the Imperial , no burn on the way down. Only 38% , would like to try this at a higher proof.
