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.
Firstly it is not expensive.
The color is a little blend and a lot of rum reviewers will say as is the taste, but not for me.
The smell is cognacy complex and very gentle. I drank it neat and it was super complex, smooth jet gentle. It is at the same time woody, fruity and dry but in a very gentle pleasant way. Try not to sip at least 5 glasses in a row, I could not stop. I think I could drink the whole bottle in one sitting. I would also recommend to keep it in a fridge so when you drink it’s already cold.
Now, rocks and mixing is a big no no on this one. It loses all its gentle complexity.
Na tomhle jsem zacinal. Urcite zajimava vec za ty penize,ale rumova lahudka to neni. Da se z nej dobre michat.
I got this rum as a birthday gift and I must say I like it more than expected. It is not as powerful and full of flavours as a cuban, but neither as simple and smooth as a domincan quality rum. It's a like something between a Santiago 11 or Cubay 10 and a Barcelo Imperial. Ok for sipping, and very good in Cuba Libre. But the price is maybe a bit high for what it offers. Anyway, I would drink it again and again with pleasure.
I prefer Demerara rums, but this is a great “Cuban style” rum that I will definitely buy again when the LCBO stocks it again.
After the first tasting you want to raise a pirate flag, shout Hooray! and go to the ocean to plunder the trading ships. With those words I rate the strength of this rum. In aroma and taste is very strong to aggressive, although it tastes quite sweet. Probably in the future it will not be my favorite, but it's not quite bad. He will surely find his fans, and he has a pretty nice bottle.
Actually I kind a like this rum. The truth is it has a bit of ethanol taste but it is definitely not tasteless. Six and half would be adequate...
This was my second rhum label what I ever tasted. So kind of second love for me. Still when I see this I'll have to take it! <3
