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.
The rum is a SMOOTH sipping rum... more like a Rhum. It has a bit of a warmth or burn.
I don't understand the lower rating for this Rum. I found it to be very tasty w/o having to become overly sweet to achieve it.
Brown sugar, spice and everything nice. I even get hints of banana and some cashew.
Price point in the US is excellent.
Poco complesso al naso, poco complesso in bocca. Poco intenso al naso, poco intenso in bocca.
Il poco che lascia non è male, ma tutto sommato è un rum abbastanza inutile.
A bit to small and a bit to smokey taste for me.
You may think different.
A standard mid range rum, smooth enough to not need ice, good round flavour but no real defining characteristics to make it stand out from the crowd.
Nice spicy flavour amazing with coke and a slice of lime.
Nice rum tot drink, tot my taste a bit beter on the rocks. A bit top dry tot my personal taste, I like more sweet rums. But for a nice change it suits me.
Gewöhnungsbedürftig im Geschmack. Zum mixen mit Coke gut. Preis/Leistung ok
En meget let og ekstremt sprittet rom, der både i duft og smag er en tynd omgang. Der er lidt røgtoner i smagen, men den udvikler sig minimalt. Det er en rom der bider i kinderne uden at efterlade ret meget til ganen. Dette er til dato en af de ringeste rom jeg har prøvet.
Den kunne muligvis med held anvendes til drinks 👎
Good quality for the price!Light rum, very pleasant, easy to drink, perfect with friends!
Lekker rummertje prijs 34 euro zeker de moeite waard
De lekkerste voor in de cola tot nu toe... Stuk duurder dan een Oakheart of morgan
Nice aroma with butterscotch and vanilla. A light golden colour with thin but suprisingly clingy, oily legs. The palate is not paticulary sweet or complex but very smooth. You get a subtle tone of vanilla, tobaco and wood. The afterburn is short and smooth.
I sampled this rum after an exceptional meal, at an exceptional restaurant, on an exceptional Caribbean island. Cuba, it said. Cuba, it promised. And Cuba it delivered. But only partly.
This rum is in fact not made in Cuba, rather the DR. It's also a solera rum, and that possibly accounts for why the Cuban lightness and smokiness are not as apparent here as in the truly-Cuba products from Havana Club and Varadero. Against those, it probably had more flavor complexity (though not aroma complexity), surely due to its age. But the practical guy in me can't light up the greater expense with the diminished Cuban-ness. Perhaps I should have judged it directly against some of its DR competitors? Not with that word on the bottle...
Plutôt insipide au départ, en le laissant s'ouvrir un peu on découvre des notes de cacao, vanille, cannelle... en bouche ça reste très léger avec toujours la vanille et un boisé plutôt agréable.
Il s'agit d'un rhum de "tradition espagnole", donc assez léger, agréable mais qui manque un peu de corps à mon gout.
Rapporté à son prix, ce rhum est une bonne affaire.
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.
