A bit too sweet for me, we enjoy Matusalem with cuban friends who look for it when we invite them to our home. It reminds them of the good old days in Miramar and Jacks in Havana 1950s
This 10 Year Solera rum from Matusalem is only $21 US, which is about $12 cheaper than their 15 Year Soloera Reserva. I have been a fan of that older brother for years and before I started writing reviews on here, I considered that 15 Year Reserva as a luxury rum. I still love it, but have found quite a few that I like even better.
This one is a very good dry rum distilled from the original Cuban formula. Like it's older brother, it can be sipped neat, on the rocks, or used as a fantastic mixer. There is absolutely nothing offensive about it and this one just makes me wanting to sip it neat because it is so pure.
Update April 14, 2019: I have had this one in my collection for almost 4 months and it still tastes the same because of no added sugar. That is the good news. The bad news is that this rum is so boring that I have no desire to go back to it even to be used as a mixer. I now drop my rating from a 7 to a 5, which means that I will never buy this one again, especially since their much better 15 year and 18 year are more easily available. No amount of mixer can tame this rum.
I'm not fan of cuban-slyle rum but this one I like. It have not so much vanilla and caramel like Extra Anejo so it quite tasty. Right proof and a little bit oak. It is easy to drink neat so it's good rum.
Hard to rate...room temperature to much of alcohol in taste...even cold....even on the rocks...still to strong alcohol fragrance...But on the end you can feel nice, sweet caramel.
A well rounded,often well blended,smooth rum,as close to the Cuban style rums that you can buy in the U.S.A. without having to cross the border. Very drinkable on it's own.Usually has a slightly sweet taste with a light barrel char.I actually like it better than their 15 or 18 year expressions which are less sweet.One thing that I have definitely noticed is the lack of consistancy though.One bottle will have a heavy,harsh,whisky taste,while a different batch will be sweet and mild...Seems like they are relying more on a brand name than a dependable product to generate repeat sales.
Матусалем 10 классико -
Несколько приятней, чем матусалем 7.
Он жгуч, весьма, но и у него весьма выраженный вкус. В сравнении с матусалем 7 , у которого вкус менее выражен, но все так же жгуч, как и десятка.
За весь вечер дегустации не сумел уловить ничего особенного в этом напитке, говоря об это вкусе.
К слову запах, точно так же: несколько приятней чем матусалем 7, но все же при глубоком вдохе не очень приятно...
этот ром не для того что бы им наслаждаться и по истине смаковать его.
Я ставлю ему твёрдую 6, но не более.
Matusalem 7 : 5+
Matusalem 10 Classico : 6
Matusalem 15 : 7
