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.
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.
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
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
