Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It's good but I expected more from this brand. Maybe I drank too much of it on vacation in the DR. It just seemed a bit cheap or like a short cut rum.
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.
Too sweet but at the same time not very much complexity of flavor...
For Sipping (not for sipping)
For mixing (go for more balanced mixers rather than sweet one otherwise you will get gummy bear like taste out of it)
The store I work for actually sent back this product because when we sampled a bottle after shipment the rum was overpowered with a heavy metallic taste. That we believe to be from the copper cap. Long story short our sales-rep agreed with us and we sent them back.
Un ron que nos enseña que las cosas se pueden hacer bien.
Con un costo justo puedes probar un muy buen ron.
Tried the Barcelo Imperial and Anejo back-to-back and both are quite a big disappointment. The Imperial has much darker color than the Anejo. Both have a very strong alcohol smell to them. Anejo tastes like alcohol with a hint of aged rum flavors hidden deep enough but ultimately this is not a neat sipper.
Very cheap rum with a distinctive sweet flavor, maybe a little bit more harsh than it's "Gran Anejo" brother. Still a very bad investment.
Light coloured and not very complex but likeable enough. Bought in Spain for 15 euro so certainly value for money.
When you need something decent in a pinch and there isn't much in the cabinet this will suffice mixed with soda. The barcelo brand is very good when it comes to the gran anjeo and the imperial but this is about the same as captain Morgan spiced rum
Ron muy similar a otros de su tipo, se puede disfrutar mezclado con cocacola.
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.
Only for mixing... maybe. Sweet, but quite harsh. And even when mixing, not at par with the Gran Añejo and definitely not with the Imperial.
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.
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.
Nostalgia brings me to this bottle. summer beach days mixing this famous Ron with coke or Fanta.
No Great rum, but Great times anyways. To share with friends!
Un ron para combinarlo con cola y poco más, estándar
I think that this would mix well with just about anything but I can't say that it's a sipping rum. Not something that I would buy again unless I was planning to make mixed drinks, then maybe.
It is a little raw compared to it is superior and slightly expensive version Gran Aniejo, but the taste for this price is really good. It is better than anything in this price range.
Habe eine Flasche aus dem letzten Jahrtausend.
Flasche und Etikett völlig anders, wahrscheinlich auch der Inhalt.
Sehr lecker und süss, Karamell, Toffe, dunkle Schokolade.
Got a bottle from the last millennium.
Bottle and label completely different, probably also the content.
Very tasty and sweet, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate.
A little bit better than Brugal Añejo but still ordinary and tasteless. Nothing that I would offer a friend. There are far better runs out there for less money.
Πίνω το ρούμι σκέτο , οπότε αυτό το ρούμι δεν είχε κάτι το ιδιαίτερο να μου δώσει. ..... πολύ καλή τιμή που με παρέσυρε ..... Μάλλον είναι για άλλα γούστα, για κοκτέιλ ή οτιδήποτε άλλο τέλος πάντων!
На Новый год два дня пил только его. В общем советую, покупался прямо в Доминиканской республике.
My girlriend liked it, and she does not like rum at all. Not much taste in this one, although i drank it at just 13 degrees Celcius
Clearly meant to be mixed, its flavor is unique enough to stand out, but only really shines when combined with something containing cane sugar. There are better options, but it's worth the experience to try.
