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.
I would like to taste him one more time. But when I tried him, I didnt like it. Maybe I will get hand on it sometimes later and change my opinion.
Both their 10 and 15 year rums are very good, but I give the edge to the 10 year. Both are medium color and have vanilla and wood notes, but the 15 was a bit more acidic and the 10 was a bit more vanilla.
Pensé que sería mejor? Notas muy alcohólicas. Aburrido en nariz y boca. Luego muy amargo en paladar. No creo que sea para tomar puro ni con hielo. Quizás, no lo hice, pueda funcionar bien en un Cuba libre. Pero personalmente me decepcionó y dudo que el 23 años sea mejor.
Pale golden. I was not sure what to expect from this one. Straight away, aromas of mead, honey, some mild tarragon. However, this positive impression is broken -to some extent- by the flavours: fruity melon, on the sweet side, very samey.
There is not much to it.
It's certainly not unpleasant, and not a terrible rum, but it doesn't quite cut it. Perhaps the phrase "a combination of rums aged on average 15 years" is responsible, seeing as the better information being the youngest rum used... Drinkable, no major flaws but that's it.
This is a good rum. Not too sweet taste. Fine sipper.
Please just do not buy these. It is more liquid sugar than a real rum. Still slightly better than some of the worst though.
This one is a very basic rum. For my it is to sweet. Ita nice along with greentea.
Good color and aromatic. Good taste to mix with Seven Up.
Too weak and thin with too much alcohol taste in my opinion. Works quite well as a mixer, but nothing I can recommend for zipping.
It was one of the first so called zipping Ron that I tasted and it’s more or less a miracle that my zipping rum journey didn’t stop there.
Nothing special as far as taste goes. Was expecting more for the price.
Podivné, neotesané, asi tomuto pití třeba dát víc šancí, ale myslím, že u mně je nedostane.
Thought that it will be smooth nice rum. 15years. No. Very brutal alcohic taste.
Un rhum agréable à boire. Assez doux en bouche et pas trop sucré
Sweet but not to much. Oke to sip. Nice aromas and burn.
Smell: Rich notes of wood ,caramel,dried fruits and sweet condiments.
Taste: An elegant and complex bouquet of wood, fruity notes and cocoa .
Finish: Persistent, like a cognac!
Colour: Amber, brass.
Tento rum je takovy prumerny, chutove pro me nevyrazny. Celkove opravdu 5 bodu.
Coke should just take over this brand and resell as stuff to mix with. Can’t drink it neat and keep a smile so on to the next one. Again if you’re a mai tai drinker then by all means otherwise EJECT
This rum is really cheap among older rums, but not as good as I expected.
Saw some of the other reviews and was nervous. This rum is smooth and get hints of chocolate.
After all a good rum, not particularly structured with a pleasant hint of chocolate. Ideal to drink with friends, not for tasting.
Jemný rum chuť až trochu nevýrazná krásný kokosový dozvuk po polknuti.
Standard sweet taste, but finish is very alcoholic and very long. Definitively not for casual sippers. There are better options for the price.
Nice dry, bit harsh, nice tones on nose when you leave it poured in glass for a while, worth trying, slightly above average rum, might be good as mixer
Wat langer geleden maar in mijn herinnering erg wrang en alcohol-achtig. Wellicht nog eens proeven om ‘t zeker te weten. Maar een fles kopen is daarvoor iets teveel.
Kto ma rad staru skolu, toho tento rum potesi. Karamel, vanilka a prijemna dubova dochut, teda ochutnate a viete, ze je to rum a nie syrup. Pokracujem v objavovani... Na zdravie!
