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.
This Rum is light brown, caramel color. Very delicate, the alcool is barely noticed when swallowed. in the mouth its also aerial and agreeably tasty. There is no significant sugar taste, it is not a sweet rum, its more high end overall taste. I look forward to tastw the 18 YO. This goes very well with a tobacco pipe or light cigar. Cheers!
A friend offered me this bottle so I didn't really know what to expect, and at my first taste I thought it was great ! It's smooth, not too strong on the alcohool and great for sipping neat.
I am always trying to buy a "gem" under $30, so I bought Matusalem Gran Reserva 15-Year. It was not a gem. It had overpower alcohol smell, dry....It is probably ok to mix with something, but would you wait 15 years to mix it with coke.
