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

Good but a bit light and thin, remain good for the price and nice to sip. I come back to it regularly.

Lots of fruit on the nose, warm through the middle, with hints of oak

With that ambiguous age statement you straight away know that this rum is all about appearances and marketing. Sure the average age of the rums used is 15 years but what about the quantities? It is very cuban, light, sweet, lots of caramel, a bit boozy and a bit watery. Good as a mixer and fine if nothing else on hand but not your first choice.

Toto je rum, ktorý nejako nenadchne, ani väčšinu neurazí. Podľa mňa ale veľmi priemerné pitie, tvorcovia sa mohli viac vyhrať. Na prvý nádych, typická rumová, ale málo výrazná, nie príliž zaujímavá vôňa. Skrátka plochá. Môžete zacítiť stopy vanilky, hrozienok, citrusov. Vyvážené, ale nevýrazné. Pokiaľ rum nenecháte dlhšie postáť v pohári, po prvom ochutnaní zacítite veľa alkoholu, ktorý sa postupne vytráca. Mierne nasladlý na jazyku, postupne zhorkne, dlhší záver. Na to, aký má Matusalem silný marketing, rum je len priemerný. Ale s Colou a limetkou je v poriadku...=) Ani 23jka nie je nic extra. Ale to zas inokedy.

I don't get a huge nose, nice and even - almost basic. Taste is very mild, not much spice, smooth, butterscotch, oaky. Long tingly finish is nice. Great for beginners who like whiskey, little boring for more advanced.

Ein runder Ron
Sehr elegant und weich in der Nase, Karamell und Toffee.
Im Gaumen sehr angenehm süss, leider keine Ecken und Kanten
wirkt ein wenig zu rund geschliffen aber super lecker !
Ein Ron für Jeden und alle Tage !

A round Ron
Very elegant and soft in the nose, caramel and toffee.
In the palate very pleasant sweet, unfortunately no corners and edges
Looks a little too round but super delicious!
A Ron for everyone and every day !

Tried this rum at Paladar Latin Kitchen and Rum Bar, which has several locations in the US. I found the rum quite enjoyable and would not hesitate to purchase a bottle if I find it in PA. Somewhat sweet and quite smooth.

Aceptable, aunque considerando añejamiento y precio, hay opciones muy superiores. Sabor y aroma fuertes.

Il n'est pas mauvais....mais pas aussi bon que le nom ou la bouteille le laisse supposer.
Au nez on retrouve, comme pour beaucoup d'autres, des notes de vanille et avec un peu d'originalité des notes de noyau.
En bouche rien d'extraordinaire, le feu de l'alcool gâche un peu le plaisir.
Au final on s’ennuie... comme avec le Botran 15 ans.

I think you can get much nicer rum for this price. Haven't provide anything what would catch my attention in this bottle. By saying this I don't want to sound like this is some garbage, still decent rum, just you can get better.
