Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Schöne Flasche und sogar Nummeriert. (Nachbewertung vom 28.12.2018)
Tja, auch schon das beste an diesem Ron. (Nein)
In der Nase fruchtig und etwas bissig. (Relativ dezent, Karamell, Kakao, Leder, Früchte, nicht bissig)
Im Gaumen doch etwas zu flach, Trockenfrüchte, Toffee, Leder. (etwa so)
Nicht so süss. (jawohl)
(Gutes Preis/Leistung Verhältnis für Einsteiger.)
Beautiful bottle and even numbered.
Well, even the best thing about this Ron.
a slightly fruty and biting nose.
On the palate, a bit too shallow, dried fruits, toffee, leather.
Not so sweet.
Weak in the finish.
Un rhum correct, avec beaucoup de rondeur mais pas assez de longueur en bouche c'est dommage.
Me gusta mucho este ron dulce y añejo, yo lo prefiero tomar convidado con Coca-Cola, sin embargo sabe bien con soda y un poco de limón como lo toman en República Dominicana
Balance in all things. Not strong, but not pungent odor. The taste is complex and without unpleasant bulges. Alcohol blurred. Lulling long aftertaste. Bottle breathed 2 weeks and alcohol emerged harsher.
it was not one of my favorite - but i won with this rum a Holiday in the Dominican Republic :-)
Very good rum for dry rums lovers. Super good price for the performance (if it costed more I would give 7/10). If you are tired of the sweet pleasers, try this one. It will fill your mouth with many aromas, but none of them will be vanilla or fruity.
I was a bit hesitant to start but I found it smooth and tasteful. Full body taste to it. It was great both as it self and mixed with Dark Ginger Ale. I have not tried it with coke yet, but I do say that ginger ale is better with rum personally. The rum does leave a great after taste and is dangerous cause it is so smooth and easy to drink. :) Recommend to anyone wanting a great tasting rum without hurting the bank.
Average sweetness and quite easy. Fruity taste with oak/wood, some honey
No acaba de convencer para beberlo solo y es demasiado caro para combinados
Sassy bottle; not for rookies!
Strong alcohol smell on the nose; it burns my nose hairs.
A tonne of spicy smoke on the palate.
The finish is super dry and leathery.
Maybe it's just me; but nothing goes better with a fine cigar then a dry, leathery rum.
For me yet again a tasty well balanced rum.... I like the sweet toffe smell with hints of vanilla flavour...with an ice cube and you make my day...
I have been travelling forse more than 30 years throughout the carebbean islands and it is still the best Rum in my opinioni.
Enjoyed this ons on the rocks. Nice bottle for a gift
This is a very fine rum, I will go so far to say that to the price it is really a bargain!!
Ein guter Rum für einen super Preis. Allerdings nichts für Anfänger. Ein kräftiger, trockener Rum der am besten pur oder mit einem Eiswürfel schmeckt.
Insipide ... Plate ... Fort arrière goût d'acool... À la limite agressant.
Et pour un gars comme moi aui aime les produits agricole bien fait donc non artificiellement sucré... C'est juste mauvais.
Et le prix ... Une farce
Definitely one to enjoy straight up or maybe 1 ice cube to help bring out the flavour.
Average rum in a nice looking bottle. Better than the Anejo
Enjoyed the different aromas and that slight 'smoke' flavor. Did drink it in one night with my girlfriend and 2 cousins
À venir prochainement.............................
This is a unique rum experience and should be tried.
That said, the rum smells and finishes like perfume! I prefer the cheaper and tastier Barcelo Grand Anjeo to the Imperial. This one surprised me, in a bad way...
I'm thinking it must be the barrels they are using for this label. The oak flavor was odd, it was over oaked providing a burnt tobacco flavor. The whole rum was way off, dry, and unbalanced. The only saving grace is that I could taste a quality aged rum wanting to come out. It was just overpowered by a strange oakey flavor and overly pungent botanicals. For my second try I used a glass of Coke to help calm it down a bit but that lingering perfume aroma would not go away and that strange oak flavor prevailed.
The rum is not worth the price but its something a rum drinker should try. Maybe your experience will be different but I think Barcelo took what could have been a great rum and messed it up terribly.
It's also a nasty hangover. That smell is still in my nose and I feel awful right now!
This is a very nice rum
It is a steal for the price
I bought it blindly. Very beautiful bottle and contents very good
