Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
I didn't put much stock in this brand until I actually tried it. I found a rich drink with a subtle sweet flavour and a strong aftertaste. Great choice for an entry-level sipping rum, at least for me.
I really like this one. Good sipper for decent price.
I love the Matusalem rums.
Nice sipping, not overly sweet.
If you like this try the 18yo for not much more money.
Hope to get the 23yo soon.
Une certaine finesse et une très belle complexité pour ce rhum dominicain.
Pour moi, un des meilleurs rapport/qualité/prix !
Vraiment une réussite à ce prix là, j'adore ce Matusalem... je ne m'en lasse pas.
The Solara method really makes this rum quite smooth. Smooth rum at a budget price.
Definitely one for fans of scotch. A bite of smoke in the middle makes it a prototypical Dominican rum (and Cuban for that matter). Sweet and smooth around the smoke. Love the bottle too, but for over $30 I was hoping for a bit better. Still, a nice rum that won't disappoint sippers.
rico y acompañable para reuniones, sabor dulce y fuerte, gran aroma!
Another gift at xmas. Loved it with ginger ale at New Years, but again, I'm sure I had a few by then. I do recall the overal smoothness and hints of oak. I was a bit surprised it was a 15 year because it didn't have the wow factor I could have had for a rum aged that long.
I enjoy the smooth, sweet flavour of Matusalem. It seems to be quite underrated by most, it is not the most aromatic or filled with varying flavours as other rum of the same quality but it packs a nice taste with little bite.
Qui il Matusalem inizia a prendere corpo.
Fratello maggiore del Matusalem 7 Year, si presenta più maturo e complesso.
Dolce ma, non troppo.
Sapore di caramello.
Legno invecchiato nel finale.
Con una bella ossigenazione, si esalta il caramello e compaiono sapori fruttati tropicali.
Particolare, molto buono da abbinare a cioccolato al latte.
Rum da assaporare durante le giornate di pioggia e freddo per coccolarsi.
Kunne ikke stå for etiketten, og det er altså IKKE den måde man skal købe rom på. Havde dog undersøgt hvad andre mener om den, så den kan nu ikke være helt tosset, og da den så endda var på tilbud, røg den ned i kurven.
Den bliver meget snart åbnet, og så får i min ærlige mening om den.
Good not too expensive straight up rum. light oaky taste
This is one of my favorite drinks. The taste is strong, smooth and very good. Excellent on ice or straight up. A bit expensive, not good enough for 15YO rum, but I wouldn't double mind to buy another of it for the collection.
A bit edgy in the taste, but combined with the nose it's a really nice sipper.
La bouteille est cependant trop petite... 700ml c pas assé :)
The Solero blending method used here gives this rum a nice light oakiness, with subtle caramel and citrus coming through on the palate.
Hintalaatusuhde kohtaa ilman kovaa verotusta.
Slyly just a little sweet, smooth, and a nice finish. Ron Matusalem 15 is very well done.

En klar favorit! Komplex lukt och smak, kryddig likaså.
