This is a great go to rum when you don't want to break the bank. Very smooth. Notes of spices, caramel, tobacco, and vanilla. Difference between this and onyx is onyx is smokier.

I first had this in punta cana and absolutely loved it. i started having friends pick me up a bottle when visiting the dominican. The odd time the LCBO carries it in hamilton. I prefer this straight up or on the rocks rather than in a mix or rum and coke. Out of a dozen rums in my liquor cabinet, this is the one i reach for after a long day at work.

Excelente ron, muy por encima de otros premium en cuanto a relación calidad/precio se refiere. Es un ron con un dulzor agradable, no raspa y con un final afrutado y caramelo. Para tomarlo solo con hielo.

Some say that this shape of a bottle of rum does not fit, but I like it very much. The Imperial name fits well. The color is rather semi-dark, smells sweet. Sweetness will also show up when tasting, and will also please non-rum enthusiasts. When swallowed, it does not scratch and generally acts very cultivated. Due to its pleasant taste and interesting bottle it is also a good gift. I strongly recommend this rum!

This is great rum straight up, provided you appreciate an bold, oaky, dry rum. It reminds me of my Cuban favorites, albeit this is a Dominican Rum. It's $ 50.00 in Quebec which is a great price for nice sipping rum. Can't ask for more in a rum. The fact that it is priced decent is irrelevant, just a bonus

Para mi gusto, este junto al pampero aniversario, son los rones con mejor calidad precio. En este caso estamos ante un ron dorado, recuerda a manzana madura, frutos secos y madera, moderadamente dulce y un final largo , solo o con una piedra de hielo.

Vítejte u další recenze, tentokrát se jedná o vlajkovou loď firmy Ron Barceló z Dominikánské republiky, dodávané v krásné elegantní lahvi o obsahu 0,7 litru a 38% alkoholu. Zrál nejméně 7 (některé zdroje uvádějí 8) let v sudech z amerického dubu.

Aroma: Výrazná vůně kůže a tabáku, čokolády, nasládlost se potkává se zemitostí.
Chuť: V chuti neobyčejně uhlazený, sametový, lahodný, plný a rozinkově nasládlý.
Když budu hodně přísný, líbila by se mi větší výraznost dochuti, je na můj vkus příliš jemná.
Shrnutí: Tento rum jsem podrobil opravdu náročným testům :-) , srovnával jsem s celou řadou rumů, které se u mě sešly. A patří k tomu nejlepšímu, co jsem poslední dobou ochutnal. Stroh 40, Abuelo Añejo, Matusalem 15y, ti všichni zůstali ve stínu Imperialu, jediný rum, který dopadl ještě lépe, byla Angostura 1824, ale tam už jsme v úplně jiné cenové relaci. Imperial seženete už kolem 550,-Kč, takže další muzikant, který vám zahraje hodně muziky za málo peněz.
Přijde mi, že mi s každou další přechutnávkou chutná víc a víc. Výraznější dochuť by z něj udělala supernovu...
