Easily consumable in a bind
I have tried this rum, but it is too harsh and strange for me in a negative way. Tried sipping it and tried to mix it but it dominates my mixed drink and ruins my Coca-Cola.
I have tried to find a way to enjoy this rum, but it comes off as too harsh and funky (in a bad way). It is too pungent for sipping, and it dominates my mixed drinks in a bad way. I'm partial to caramel, vanilla and tobacco notes so I guess I will put this back on the shelf and try it again after a while to see if my palate has matured.
I’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth but I really like this rum. I couldn’t find it for awhile so I bought the 15 instead, which is smoother with similar flavours, but not the same. The 10 seems to have a touch more bite, but a lot more labour, and sweeter - like caramel. I dig it. To each their own!
While vacationing in Acapulco I picked up a bottle of Matusalem 10 yr, which is not available in my area. It was actually quite cheap (250 Mexican Pesos) and I didn’t expect much given the price. This rum is dry, as I expected’ but surprisingly to my liking. Certainly not a top of the line Rum but definitely acceptable even drank neat. Well done. (I wish this was available in my area)
It's an average rum I would say. I buy it when I go to Mexico just because it's nice enough for the price. There is definitely better drums out there but not for the same price in my opinion.
Both their 10 and 15 year rums are very good, but I give the edge to the 10 year. Both are medium color and have vanilla and wood notes, but the 15 was a bit more acidic and the 10 was a bit more vanilla.
