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
The nose is smooth with just a slight burn. Slightly nutty with some fruit but not the depth for a sipper. Mixed well with Coke but again not the depth to standout with a citrus soda. Enjoyed but will not stock.
Smell: Rich notes of wood ,caramel,dried fruits and sweet condiments.
Taste: An elegant and complex bouquet of wood, fruity notes and cocoa .
Finish: Persistent, like a cognac!
Colour: Amber, brass.
Coke should just take over this brand and resell as stuff to mix with. Can’t drink it neat and keep a smile so on to the next one. Again if you’re a mai tai drinker then by all means otherwise EJECT
