MATUSALEN 15. Another finished bottle, this one from Dominican Republic with high pride in Cuban heritage, this rum is 15 years solera style (NO REAL 15 YEARS OLD), they label this Rum as ”Super Premium” on their website but, it isn't a premium rum.  It really isn't. But as an alternative to the sweet entry level rums, it is okay.
Value for money is okay. Anyhow I only recommend buying it, if you want to try a lighter cuban style of rum, and have trouble finding other options. As for the sipping experience, in my opinion, you can find a lot of better rums in this price range

I enjoy this rum. Find it every so often for around $40. The nose is sweet with caramel, molasses, vanilla and toffee. The palate has some of the same flavor a, though muted. I don't find much wood flavor in this rum and for me, I like that. It is decently smooth. Since it's a solera aged rum, I believe the younger rums over take the older in this blend, hence why the reviews come out so half hearted. You will find a bit of burn in the finish. Overall this is a decent rum. Are there others that are better in this price point, yes. Are there any that taste like this one, no. It's truly a different rum in my opinion. Would love to sample the 18yr to see the difference.

I bought this at a clearance for Euro 20 so you could not go wrong. For the money, it was a great deal. However, at full price I would hesitate. It is smooth, a little too sweet for my liking, and lacks depth and full flavour. There is not rich aftertaste. A nice mixer.

Colore ambrato rossastro. Dolce e fruttato ma non troppo con sentore di csramello e legno. Ottimo da sorseggiare liscio e accompagneto da cioccolato fondente fino.
