Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Quite a decent rum, first try is really sharp aftertaste, second try gives a smooth feel. The aroma of the wooden casks. Can be sipped.
Very decent, very smooth rum, with wide sugary sweetness and body with hints of coffee and sweet spice. It has very slight after taste burn. I recommend this one as good bargain with high benefit cost. It's very drinkable rum, decent mixer and simple sipper (with no distinctive or surprising taste, however).
The Dominicans scored big with this one! I can't believe all the poor or so-so ratings. This rum is fantastic. It's good iced cold and it also makes a punchy rum and coke. This should serve as the standard for "Anejo" rums! It is very balanced, starts with a nice rum bite, finishes smooth with a very subtle sweetness, and is not over oaked. The aroma lingers in the nose and the pallet for a while maintaining a vanilla and nutty finish. Molasses, fruit, and sugar are not the centerpiece of this Anejo. This is a "hotter" more punchy aged rum.
As always I taste my rum neat. Not a full bodied smooth rum but no overpowering alcohol or burn which is not bad for a rum priced pretty much on par with a Havana club blanco. Spicy and not overly sweet. Pretty decent.
Nice smooth taste of younger ron. I like it. Alcohol is not sharp so it can be drinked well. Not so sweet if someone seek for this taste.
I find this Barcelo gran añejo impossible to drink on the rocks but perfect for a good rum-coke! So as a sipper I rate it a 3 but as a mixer I rate it a good 7 that's why the score of 6 because it is a love and hate relation for me.
More bite the Imperial. Can still be enjoyed Neat if you like some bite, The alcohol lingers just a bit when drinking Neat, its an excellent for mixing, make a good Rum a coke or Rum and Coconut water when hydration is needed. When traveling in the Island its readily available in every restaurant and bar.
I think I paid 45 dollars for this. Well worth it. Comes in a nice looking bottle. Has a nice mild oakiness about it and the some sweetness from the sugar cane.
Perhaps this is aged a bit longer than the anejo but I could not detect much difference other than the bottle. Certainly not worth the increase in price.
This is my first rum, so I was not sure if 8 is not to high. I tried some cheap rums before and never could enjoy sipping because of a strong alcohol taste. So I was sticking to whisky.
Gave rum another chance with buying this one after reading some of the reviews here.
I’m lost to rum now! Finally no alcohol, pure pleasure!
I’ll continue exploring, thank you Barcelo!
medium bronze, bright, one note taste, sweet. Very fleeting unpleasant aftertaste, something rotten? two 1 oz shots always leaves a headache
this could open gate to the rum world but it it still so much different then my style of rum. i can feel some oil barrel, that to much, other spices? a bit to weak sweetness, but of course there was great party with that, I/t its worthy to taste, but not for my classic open bar bottle. taste is ti much oil in my opinion, even if there should be called cream taste in my opinion it is oil not creamy,
Zdravim jedná se o klasiku co je dostupná a chuťově neurazí z aroma vyčnívá dřevitost a v pozadí karamel a rozinky co se týká chuti tak ji přebijí alkohol však dozvuky se dostaví do míchaných nápojů se ale nehodí
Light in color. Smells light and very sweet and of caramel like a candy bar. Not too harsh but there's definitely a burn there. Better than the añejo version but I wouldn't really consider it a sipping rum. Sweet on the tongue but you don't taste much else. Not complex, and would definitely just mix this. Pretty good in pineapple juice, almost disappears so would make a mean drink.
