Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum is not for drinking straight up, its way to harsh.
As a mixer it does alright and the drinks are enjoyable
but there are better ones out there at similar prices.
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.
Coffee, vanilla, not very long finish without personnality. A good one for cocktail or rocks & coke.
Quote : 6.5
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.
A surprising bargain for a simple sipping rum. No burn.
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.
Its ok bit not that smooth to sip. The Imperial is a massive step up from this.
Buen color y sabor, algo fuerte al paladar, se percibe el roble. Para ingerir con hielo y/o con cola.
Precis på gränsen till drickbar rent men blir tyvärr för stark spritsmak i slutet.
Bra doft mycket vanilj, de ger bra utslag och smak i cola så blandmässigt är den mycket bra. Prisvärd i Sverige sett till kvalité.
Not much to say - tastes like light, column-made rum.
Close to Barcelo Imperial. however a little thiner than Imperial.
Good for everyday rum.
Neurazí, nenadchne nicméně celkem dobře pitelný a chuť je velice jemná.
En ok rom med vaniljsmak. Skall provas i drinkar. Ok.
Not a good sipping rum but works very well as a mixing rum.
Kind of rum that has nothing special but can be a solution in a club that only offers crap as it isn't bad. Strong alcohol taste, not well balanced, only for mixing. For Cuba libre this rum is somewhere in between Brugal XV (a bit better as smoother) and Havana 7 in my opinion
Pretty good, notes of coffee and toffee. Not that big of a burn.
Had this in Mexico it was this or matusalem 10 year old having had matusalem before went for barcelo however would prefer matusalem but this is still ok slightly rough to start but get a good sweet flavour from it it's a good price for what it is
This rum has a lighter after taste. Not smooth but not strong
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.
This was my first sipping rum. It got me interested in exploring rums.
A very pleasant sipping Rum, great quality for the price and a smooth 37.5%. Strong hints of Chocolate and less of Coffee. You can't go wrong for the price.
Meegenomen van vakantie naar de Dominicaanse Republiek. Op zich niet gek, maar soms tikje wrang en niet helemaal mijn smaak. Een 6,5 zou het zijn voor mij. Ook goed voor in de mix.
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.
