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.
It's not overwhelmingly sweet. I see what others are talking about with the ethanol taste but it is not overwhelming, either. It has a unique aftertaste - vanilla? - but it's long after the booze leaves your tongue. Would buy if it was on sale, probably wouldn't pay full price for a bottle.
Rhum peu dégusté...
I had high hopes when I opened this one. It let me down straight away. Tasted like burnt acid. I doubt I will ever finish this one. Maybe some day I'll give it another try.
all the rums i drink are never used for mixing...some need just ice and i will drink any rum that needs cola added to it to make it palatable ...matusalem is another bottle that is always available on my shelf ...love the flavors, the bouquet and the look of it swirling in the glass alone or with a cube
I just had the bottle so didn't try it too many times but first impression is good.
The aftertaste of it is like christmas- peppery. Nothing special and doesn't get better with coce.
Colore oro scuro, trasparente. Intensità all'olfatto alta. Profumo di legno, cacao, uvetta e caramello. Aroma di caramello. Tatto corposo pieno si espande aggressivamente. Gusto dolce.
A very light rum with a little smoke. Not very complex and a little thin taste wise especially when mixed.
Makes a good rum and coke if you`re using mexican cane cola.
En noget krads sag, der ikke tiltaler mig.
Den har dog lidt noter i sig, men ikke meget sødme.
Den er muligvis god i drinks
Hintalaatusuhde kohtaa ilman kovaa verotusta.
One to savour and enjoy like a fine Cognac.
En ganske udmærket rom til prisen. Lidt sprittet. Men har også mange lækre smagsnuancer.
Udmærket rom, men ikke min favorit...
Nice High end rum !
Not the best sipping rum around, but at it's price it's worth using for drinks like Cuba Libres, as it by far smashes standard rums like Bacardi etc.
Vil hellere skyde pengene efter 23'eren
I purchased on a lark and was pleasantly surprised by this lighter dark rum. I had straight up but would not recommend. It was delicious with cola...a nice froth and sweet finish. Good value too.
The Solara method really makes this rum quite smooth. Smooth rum at a budget price.
Bought this once when in Mexico and couldn't ring my favorites. I think it's best used in mixed drinks. Was hoping to dip in a lime and sip it. A bit too harsh for that so went to the old standby of half Coke and half rum. The next day I couldn't say how good it was. A 7 from me.
Il colore e' oro brillante.
Al naso si presenta con un ricco bouquet di frutta esotica dove la fa' da padrone la banana,e anche una buona nota di vaniglia.
Assolutamente l'odore che emana ti invita a bere questo nettare che evoca nell'immaginazione il caldo e i colori dei caraibi.
In bocca non si percepisce lo spessore del distillato,quello che precedentemente l'olfatto ne ha percepito ,svanisce come un'ape che punge e vola via!!!!
alone or with chocholate...... very good
great quality price, smell wonderfull and taste delicately.
it has notes of raisins and dried fruit. Its also a little sharp for the nose. The taste of this rum is quite good if you are into rom who has a sharp body of alcohol.
