The first sipping rum I ever purchased. Nice and smooth. Not too sweet. One I'll happily go back to.

good it as a present, checked it out but it 's not my taste
also the price seams to be good but lacks quiet a bit.

Slyly just a little sweet, smooth, and a nice finish. Ron Matusalem 15 is very well done.

edited to add sugar test results- 5g

I was recently disappointed to find that this is flavored with prune and vanilla - and to make it worse, the original practice of using macerated prunes has been replaced by extract.

It is still a great tasting rum and a bargain at around $20, but I find it harder to consider it a serious contender to other genuine rums in the same style, such as Seales 10 year.

Edit : to reviewer Robin - you seem to give this rum a decent though not glowing review but then a rating of 1??? Did you make a mistake?

I enjoy using a pretty good rum to make my rum and coke (diet coke). This one works great, at a decent price.

Compared to standard Matusalem seems very sweet, more delicate and less alcoholic taste.

Nothing special, as this is a 15yo reserva. Pale color, average nose, but for it's price about 25 EUR is not so bad 55%

Hmmm... it's a cognac, a good one, so the rating is irrelevant

I have consumed couble of bottles, but it is not great or remarkable. I am not likely to buy more, because of rum scandal issue and personal incompatility with the taste.

It’s ok but not worth the cost. Steer towards the 10 year if you can find it.

It’s not superb sweet. It’s not full of junk. It’s just a smooth rum that you can drink on the rocks or pair with cola, gingerale, soda water etc.

It’s good with almost anything. I appreciate this rum because you can enjoy it several different ways.
