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 am still quite inexperienced with rum tasting, but I really loved this one. Nice hint of vanilla that I personally really like. Would recomend in a heartbeat.
Nice to drink straight. Full bodied, a bit rough, slightly bitter but satisfying. I don't get the negativity or why it is considered to be iconic, but it's certainly good. Not for standard, though, at least not for me.
This rum doesn't have a real good taste. Its flavour is mostrly covered by alcohol taste, but anyway has notes of molasses and a sweet aftertaste. I wouldn't recommend it as a good rum, but for its price it can be a good deal imho (you can find it for around 20 euros, which is the bare minimal for a decent rum). For starters, it's an ok choice.
Quite good rum with a good price/qualità ratio. Nice smell of vanille, long lasting in mouth, smooth. To much alcoholic at the beginning. After some minutes and warm up, It works Better.
První ochutnávka přináší velmi příjemný pocit, jak se postupně dostáváme z pevnosti měkkého, lehkého pálení k chuti citrusů a koření, následované karamelem a tmavým ovocem. Je to skoro jako bych pil dva rumy najednou – mladý a starý. Jak objevuji víc, cítim papriku, všehochuť a trochu prachové tóny dubu. Rum se trefuje do zadní strany krku chutí zralých švestek s náznakem čutní. Když se pozastavím, abych si mohl užít závěr, má ústa se zůstávají v pocitu radosti, a jak postupně mizí lehké tóny, vyplývá na povrch chuť koření na pečení a karamelizovaného cukru.
Golden spirit, quite industrial alcholic note. Solera aging, so nothing special at all... it is a very basic rum, I’ve tried both the cuban and the rest of the world version and the cuban one is slightly better. Very entry level and basic one, good choice only if you don’t have much money to spend since it has a good quality/cost range.
