When I finally get the urge to crack this baby open, I will update this rating.

Very surprised by the low ratings, this rum is great - butterscotch sweetness but with a gentle burn. Smells, tastes even better.

So, so, so smooth. The alcohol is barely tangible on the nose or tongue. The color is light amber with a hint of reds.

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.

My local shop has this priced at $15, which is great for the value. It's an excellent blend of Dominican rum and it's light brown color matches its smooth taste. Great alone or with mixer. Would buy it if it was $20 or $25 but not higher.

I've been looking for years for something that tastes like that! It has this really nice odor and the tastes I just can't compare. I am drinking it 100% clean, but I am yet to try this with cola.

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!

If you look at price / performance.
This is a very fine tasty rum.

Where dark rums are concerned, this one has a complex, almost fruity forefront. Hefty notes of apple and apricot adorn the palate, quickly followed with a dense, oaky finish. Defninitely an interesting addition to any collection.

A surprising bargain for a simple sipping rum. No burn.

A mio gusto un rum che si presta molto per cocktail sopratutto per il cubalibre
Lascia sentori non troppo accentuati di invecchiamento
Il giusto compromesso per un gusto raffinato

Absolutely men's character. Classic oak testy. Best for price/quality

Este ron es uno de mis consentidos ya que la relación precio sabor es muy rentable. Ron dulce y ligero para tomarlo durante toda la tarde. Tengo varias botellas en mi cava.

I don't understand the low numbers this rum received. This Dominican rum is not overly sweet although there are some sweetness in the finish. Some vanilla flavor and no harsh burn...quite smooth. Nothing extraordinary about it otherwise I'd have given it a 9. Would make for a decent sipping rum if nothing better is available. Works great in mixed drinks and colas. Extremely versatile rum.

Délicieux rum, goût pas trop dure avec un soupçon de vanille. À déguster entre amis sois "On the rock" Ou en "Cuba libre".

This rum is good. Even neat it has a lot of flavour, though i recomend it with cola.

Es uno de mis favoritos para mezclar con refrescos, da un buen sabor, sin llegar a ocultar el sabor del refresco

Rather low in price, but pretty high in quality! Great rum, works well in mixed drinks and with cola, but is also great with just ice. If I have to think something negative, I'd say the smell isn't as delicious as it could be, the smell of alcohol is quite sharp. Also the first sips might not be as good as in some other rums, because of this sharp aroma of alcohol. But still, I'd recommend this rum!

A beautifully smooth, sweet Dominican rum from Ron Barceló, Gran Añejo is a perfect mixer and works tremendously well in a variety of dark rum cocktails, or you could just have it with a few ice cubes and a squeeze of fresh lime.

Sa robe est or pâle.

Au nez, l’impression est sèche. L’arôme dominant est nettement le caramel. Viennent ensuite des notes torréfiées de chocolat. Pour finir une touche vanillée apparaît. L’ensemble est relativement frais.

En bouche, l’attaque est souple mais sèche, ici pas de sucre. On retrouve les mêmes marqueurs qu’au nez. Le chocolat et le caramel font cependant jeu égal. Bien que la bouche soit plutôt légère, les arômes ne sont pas si timides que ça.

La finale est assez longue et toujours sèche. Les mêmes notes demeurent et un boisé discret pointe le bout de son nez.

Facile à boire, presque aussi bon que la version imperial... en moins doux ;)

Smooth sipping, drinkeble, for mixes, etc. Good aged allround rum. Very nice!!!

I think this rum should be more appreciated, especially if you like rums that holds back on overt sweetness in favour of more fruity, herbal or nutty flavours. I especially appreciate its nutty and herbal qualitites, letting the sweetness take a back seat to this nice mix of tastes. Sure, it is not an extraordinary product, but very well made and price worthy given its qualities.
