Matusalem Gran Reserva 15-year rum is produced using a combination of rums aged on average 15 years and distilled from molasses using the solera process.
The Matusalem company was established in 1872 originally in Santiago de Cuba. The company fled the country following the Cuban Revolution in 1959 and the Gran Reserva rum is now produced in the Dominican Republic.
Tasty, but not quite great
So happy to have found it on sale with my student budget. Still the great quality I expect from Matusalem. Very smooth, slightly sweet, no overwhelming wood.
I don't understand the lower rating for this Rum. I found it to be very tasty w/o having to become overly sweet to achieve it.
Brown sugar, spice and everything nice. I even get hints of banana and some cashew.
Price point in the US is excellent.
So far this is one of my favorite rums. Lovely toffee taste when sipped neat. If you are looking for a good value for money rum that is easy to drink you won't go far wrong than buying a bottle of this stuff.
