Tasty, but not quite great
I ordered this at a restaurant in La Jolla, CA. I was expecting to get one of the darker Matusalem rums. I was disappointed at first when they brought out a white rum, but I gave it a chance. It actually tasted great neat, lots of character. I added ice but it didn’t hold up well... It was definitely better neat.
Bought it after reading relatively good reviews but all regular agricoles shit over this. Seriously. It’s ok and has some unexplained character but it’s plain and boring. Something is not right. Had an open Mount Gay Eclipse next to it and the MG felt like a 9 star rum.
Performs badly in coctails as well. Will stash it under the bed and try again in a couple of years
Toto je moje ochutnávka třetího bílého rumu v životě. Objednal jsem jej spolu s Matusalem 15 Gran Reserva v akci 1+1. Už jeho vůně nebyla moc příjemná a byl moc cítit alkohol. Chuť to jen potvrdila a tak jsem zbytek nedopité skleničky na ochutnání, smísil s kolou, kterou mám naštěstí skoro pořád doma. Pak už chuť byla vynikající. Nikdy bych nevěřil, že to takto může dopadnout.
A smell of sugary ethanol, flat and simple. Taste is harsh and a bit like cough syrup. Finish is short and bitter. To me this is pretty much comparable to Bacardi Superior, maybe just a tad better.
Удачное название, простая и оригинальная бутылка.
Аромат: сладость, затхлое дерево и свежая столовая зелень, сливочное масло, спирт.
Во вкусе мало удовольствия, но что-то интересное есть кроме сладости, горечи и ванили.
Закуска обязательна, но при этом ром очень приглаженный, мирный и хорошо играет амплуа светлого рома.
I had a few drinks of Matusalem Platino while vacationing in Oaxaca Mexico. Pretty decent bottle and label design. Very strong alcohol to the nose and palate if neat sipped. Mixes rather well with your favorite soda drinks.
In my quest to find a better white rum than Plantation 3 Star Artisinal, I chose this one only because Vizcaya Cristal is not available where I live. Both of them are Cuban style and made in the neighboring Dominican Republic, but the 3 Star is from several different islands. A side by side comparison was the only way to test them. The 3 Star is still the clear cut winner with flavors, but the Matusalem Platino will add no flavors at all to your authentic Cuban daiquiri. It is also more readily available than the 3 Star.
Update March 2, 2019: This rum will not add any flavors to your mixed drinks. Then again, so will Don Q Cristal achieve the same goal at a lesser price.This one is also probably another white rum with no hangover penalty. There are so many other white rums that one should consider buying unless one is stuck onto the dumb mentality of Bacardi or Captain Morgan.
