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.

Nice and smooth, hints of coffee, toffee, and baking spice- yum!

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.

Very smooith, a bit of a harsh nose at first,but mellows out a bit over time. Very sippable and not too expensive. Also a great rum in the cocktail Dr. J, by Dave Arnold (not milkwashed).

Bon rhum, goût de caramel, un peu astringent. Plus sec que le 18 ans mais bon a déguster avec ou sans glace.

The rum is a SMOOTH sipping rum... more like a Rhum. It has a bit of a warmth or burn.

Like many other reviewers on here, I found the Matusalem 15 decent all around but not spectacular. The aroma is fairly sweet and it has a light honey color. There is a bit of bite initially, but the aftertaste is better than expected. Overall, this is a rum I would share with casual acquaintances, but my best friends would get something better.

Je n' étais pas attire par ce rhum moyennement noté mais un ami le l à proposé en apéritif.j ai étais surpris qu il ne soit pas mieux noté.car à 24€ en Espagne ce rhum cette assez simple fait ressortir des notes pruneaux sur un fond qui ressemble à un pampero et même si l'alcool reste un peu agressif en fond de bouche l ensemble reste sucré et globalement agréable.bien pour débuter dans le rhum.un rhum sans prétention mais qui vaut 7.2 pur moi.
