This is a run of the mill Spanish rum. Not sweet but nothing special about it

Orange and vanilla aroma, taste is okay, almost no finish

Lots of vanilla flavour. Good for a Cuba libre on a hot summer evening. To drink neat is oké but not great.

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.

Very nice smell and taste that is quite balanced. Would recommend.

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

Classic dark, smooth rum. Best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.

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.
