Barcelo Imperial rum is produced in the Dominican Republic using column stills before aged in white oak casks for up to 10 years.
Ron Barcelo was founded in 1929 by Spanish entrepreneur Julian Barcelo in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The brand was sold mainly in the Caribbean and North America until a much broader international expansion began in 1992.
Tasty, but not quite great
Nice, posh looking bottle and nice colour to start with. This rum is not sweet, has a nice oaky flavor, but not too strong that makes it go down really easily. Very nice sipping rum at a decent price too.
Nice presentation. Beautiful mid-amber colour. A little alcohol on the nose and a small burn on the way down. Everything points to a good rum. But the flavour is just lacking. Some burnt sugar. A little dried fruit. But no depth or complexity. Nothing making you want more. Not worth the jump in price from cheaper Barcelo products.
