Easily consumable in a bind
You can find this rum almost everywhere on the island and it is a bargain! Seems, we gringos prefer the Barcelo, whereas the locals prefer Brugal. I would not drink this straight up or just on the rocks. Mixes well with Coke or gingerale.
It is a good rum in it's price category - personally much better than same price (or even a bit higher) Bacardi or Captain Morgan
A pretty good mixer but on the harsh side to enjoy straight. Great price to add this one to you collection or as a decent house rum. Being aged for up to 4 years and in ex bourbon barrels, I was hoping for something better.
I don’t understand why some people are so harsh on this rum. When I read comments containing words like “nose” and “oak and dark chocolate flavors” for describing this rum, I know that person is trying to pose into someone who knows rums, but doesn’t really. Criticizing a 10-14 euro rum for not tasting “special” is like being disappointed cous your Toyota Prius doesn’t keep up with your neighbor’s Porsche.
Also…people that comment that this rum is not a sipper: are you insane, or have you just discovered rum? It’s a cheap mixing rum. You expect to pay 14 euros and get a Diplomatico 1997?
Let’s face it: 99% of the people who drink rum, buy this kind of cheap stuff and mix it up. And this one does the job perfectly. Yes, it doesn’t taste special, distinct. You want special? You want premium? PAY PREMIUM.
People who say this is bad have clearly not tried some of Bacardi’s garbage.
Bit sweet, notes of leather and wood, bits of tobacco. Thanks Mediterranean sun probably influences my opinion, but quite nice at night on your terrace with the sound of the sea as soundtrack.
Un ron agradable, sobre todo por la relación calidad/precio. Se siente mucho el alcohol al probarlo, sin embargo luego baja y se aprecia el dulce. No recomiendo para tomarlo solo o en las rocas, pero si para cocteles, ya que combina muy bien.
Levnější vladší bratříček Barcela Imperial. Barcelo Anejo není tolik vyzrálé i když také už chytá chutě po whisky, převládá klasický rum. Nic extra, ale vzhledem k ceně rozumné pití.
Nose is attractive with vanilla and alcohol content.
Palate is complex, but bitterness stifles enjoy.
Pleasure is not great, it squeezes the head slightly, relaxes the body, easily digestible.
Cuban/Spanish style mainstream.
