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.
Mir war der zu fasslastig. Wem sowas taugt der is hier richtig. Ich steh eher auf süße Rums wie A.H.Riise oder Pantation. Is kein schlechter Rum, einfach nur nicht mein Geschmack.
pleasant sweet aroma - icing, honey, cinnamon, exotic wood. In the mouth there are clear notes of sherry, wine mold and still a lot of honey. Light finish - water with honey, rose water, a delicate root note, slightly tobacco.
Жжёный сахар с фруктовым оттенком в аромате. Спирт присутствует, но не сильно. Во вкусе - опять-таки жжёный сахар, однако в меру сладкий, не приторный. Спиртяга присутствует, но не критично. Послевкусие недолгое и приятное. Хороший ром "как он есть".
Burnt sugar with a fruity hint in aroma. Spirit harshness is present, but low. Taste - again burnt sugar, not too sweet, with some spirit bite. Aftertaste is short and pleasant. A good solid rum.
Nice touch with a bit of ice. Easy to drink. Not very sweet.
Interesting smoking taste, but not really my cap of tea.
Appereance is amazing. Bottle design is very good.
This rum is made not from melasses, but sugarcane juice. Other things are same for spanish style.
Nose - intensive and pretty complex, no spirit. Rich vanilla, dried fruits, caramel.
Palate: very sweet and veeeery smooth: sugarcane, rich vanilla, dried fruits and bowed carrot which is dissonant here.
Not bad for the rum made in column. It has own character.
I found that empty glass smells very good with sugarcane and vanilla.
Very easy to drink and the morning is clear.
After being opened ~1 month it becomes better and not too overly sweet.
Got this rum on Curasao for 23$. What a bargain, exceptional good for this price.
It's rich in taste and spicy (not harsh).
You should give this rum some time to breath, 10-20min would be fine, because at the beginning there is a alcohol note in the smell.
I love the oil, it's warm and fills your mouth with flavours.
The finish is warm and spicy, some light sweetness remains on the palet. This rum is very very good.
Smell: oak, caramel, some molasses, dry fruits (plum, raisins), toasted barrel
Taste: caramel, burned suggar, rum raisins, vanilla, spice, oak, some bitterness (not much), oil (3.5/5)
A nice rum for casual drinks with friends. Perfect to drink with soda.
Worthy to try. Not too sweet, caramel flavours and bit of vanilla. Easy to drink and to enjoy.
Not complex but straightforward toffee flavor and some heat. Not bad and not great.
It's the best you'll get at an all inclusive in the DR
Excellent value for money.
Taste without excess alcohol
Nicht zu teurer ausgewogener Rum. Sehr mild und daher für Einsteiger geeignet.
I can feel a coffee. Price just equals the rum quality.
Por su suavidad por la cantidad de notas y por el dulzor final le doy ese 7, desde luego combinarlo me parece un dispendio y ahora que me lo han puesto a 14'95€ desde luego compraré alguna más.
It has a sweet taste. The brown sigar note is strong.
A beautifully smooth after dinner drink that is best enjoyed on it's own
ikke så veldig søt i smaken, men en god ettersmak.
Dry & slightly smokey, with relatively strong alhoholic burn. A nice bottle though and at thsi price it is ok but not the best to sip neat.
The taste and smell mix without anyone being pregnant except the alcohol.
I really like that bottle style but not like that taste
Good but not one of my favorites. Smooth taste, I prefer the sweeter ones
Had this one while on vacation in Mallorca. It has a bit of everything: a promising nose, and the taste itself brings quite a bit sweetness and a bit of oak. Perhaps better with a bit of ice, but suitable for neat as well.
.This was one of the first sipping rums I ever tried while on our trip to the DR. It is a good rum but definitely not one to start your rum journey with. This rum is dry but has good sweet notes.
