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.
Tasty, but not quite great
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.
Not the best sipping rum around, but at it's price it's worth using for drinks like Cuba Libres, as it by far smashes standard rums like Bacardi etc.
I purchased on a lark and was pleasantly surprised by this lighter dark rum. I had straight up but would not recommend. It was delicious with cola...a nice froth and sweet finish. Good value too.
Bought this once when in Mexico and couldn't ring my favorites. I think it's best used in mixed drinks. Was hoping to dip in a lime and sip it. A bit too harsh for that so went to the old standby of half Coke and half rum. The next day I couldn't say how good it was. A 7 from me.
Il colore e' oro brillante.
Al naso si presenta con un ricco bouquet di frutta esotica dove la fa' da padrone la banana,e anche una buona nota di vaniglia.
Assolutamente l'odore che emana ti invita a bere questo nettare che evoca nell'immaginazione il caldo e i colori dei caraibi.
In bocca non si percepisce lo spessore del distillato,quello che precedentemente l'olfatto ne ha percepito ,svanisce come un'ape che punge e vola via!!!!
it has notes of raisins and dried fruit. Its also a little sharp for the nose. The taste of this rum is quite good if you are into rom who has a sharp body of alcohol.
