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.

Perfectly flavoured with a edgy aftertaste that says “yes i drink rum”
Not as smooth as you might expect for a 15 year product but well priced to deliver excellent value for a regular “go to” rum

Maybe someone likes it but I know I won't buy anymore.

Mot much smell, strong, no bouquet

Assez déçu par ce rhum qui est très sur l'alcool et possède une complexité aromatique trop limitée à mon sens.

I've had worse, I've had better, but it's definitely not bad.
Whilst it does have a slight alcoholic taste to begin with, if you let it air for a bit I found that it almost disappeared

Some "expert" thought this bottle would be a good addition to my collection. He couldnt be more wrong. Lacks complexity and isnt my style of rhum. Happy for those who like it!

Bon rhum, rien d'incroyable, pas dispendieux alors ça vaut la peine d'avoir pour une collection

Smooth but still with a sticky aroma.
Smokey taste.

This is not an excellent rum but it's a good choice for beginners who want to start sipping. It's taste is acceptable and doesn't have a strong ethanol presence as other cheaper mixers. It is cheap, easy to find and tastes great with coke.

Матусалем 15 определённо уже отличается от 7и летнего и 10ти летнего Матусалема.
Этот матусалем уже можно посмаковать.
Запах спокойный, не жжет, совершенно «не бьет в нос».
В сущности своей это такой классический ром. Он определённо не ароматизированный. У напитка не будет очень насыщенного вкуса (в сравнении с другими Ромами, которые я пробовал из этой же ценовой категории). Но пьётся он очень легко. Его легко можно смаковать и по долгу держать во рту.
Но вот ещё одно личное наблюдение: когда бутылка заканчивалась уже, под конец вечера дегустации было ощущение, что и матусалем 15 превращается в матусалем 10. Из этого следует что напиваться этим напитком пожалуй не стоит. Можно только ухудшить его подоенную оценку.
Все три представленных рома на вчерашней дегустации были очень схожего окраса, но матусалем 15 все же был наиболее темным (в то время как 7ку и 10тку не отличить на вид).

Matusalem 7: 5+
Matusalem 10 Classico: 6
Matusalem 15 : 7 (6,7-6,8 ;) )
