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
I started out with a few sips neat - it was ok, but not one of my favorites. I then tried another round with a couple ice cubes. This seemed to mask most of the flavors and all I tasted was the alcohol - not very good. I finally mixed it with some ginger ale and this seemed to work fine. However I can mix a much cheaper rum with my ginger ale and it is just as good.
So far this is one of my favorite rums. Lovely toffee taste when sipped neat. If you are looking for a good value for money rum that is easy to drink you won't go far wrong than buying a bottle of this stuff.
Matusalem, again a cuban-like rum, although in this case it's a dominican republic rum. However for me goes this rum rather straight into cocktails. He might be a sipper but not for me.
