Recommendable to most
from the moment u sip it u feel your palate delighted by a wonderfull strong banana and papaya taste, rich woody notes well ballanced by the smooth after. although the after could have been longer.
Aroma not nice - something unpleasant, but very hard to identify. First taste is smooth, but after more and more dry ending in woody aftertaste. Nothing special ...
When I experienced the first sip I was surprised, because I noticed the toffee and Hazelnut flavors on the palate, with the initial heat. The sweetness is not so dominant this time, it rather appears later in the aftertaste where is cuts the heating in your throat. The finish is long and leaves you with hints of sweet vanilla.
I have the same recommendation for the Ron Mulata 15 as for Havana Club 7, they are in my opinion best served chilled rather than with room temperature. Or better way, enjoy it with a good quality cigar.
read whole my review here:
This is a top of the line Cuban rum. Smooth and lighter start than some of its aged Cuban peer rums, but solid finish. Mulata 15 can compete with a Havana Club 15 yr old but is considerably cheaper. Goes very well with medium bodied cigars.
Not bad ron. Actually the nose is much better that taste. It is fairly sweet and fruity than nosing but wooden and dry with small acidity on tasting. Definitely worth to taste at least once )
I really like the 5yo and 7yo Mulata's as every day, pleasant but somewhat simple rums. This 15yo expression is clearly more complex, more sophisticated and in every way more mature; banana, tropical fruits, fudge, spice, tobacco and oak are all present. On the nose you would expect a rather sweet rum but it is in fact (as good as) dry with a natural sweetness.
It is still not as complex as some in this price range but every sip tells you that you have chosen well; nothing out of tune and soft as butter. People still complaining of an alcohol burn should maybe simply stay away from spirits in general. When you like its younger brothers you really should give the 15yo a chance and pick up a bottle. Maybe not a great rum but a very good one for sure!
With a light colour and unpretentious bottle it's easy to pass on this rum, but I wouldn't. It has a deceivingly sweet, almost bubblegum aroma, but the taste is smooth and fruity with a slight woody aftertaste all very well in proportion. Give it a try when you find it. You might be surprised.
Certainly, it is a little un satisfactory for a 15 year aged product.
However, well balanced and enjoyable rum. Should drink it without adding anything.
I don't like "Mulata Gran Reserva" but I like this.
