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.
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
Sweet aroma of vanila and spices. Oily palate with ginger warmth. Bit spicy but great though.
The first time I drank Barcelo Imperial was in Cuba where I spent my days drinking Ron Cubay on the rocks in the sweltering heat, watching the 2014 football World Cup on TV in a local café. The owner had a bottle of the Dominican Imperial on his "top shelf". Compared to the Cubay Anejo it was quite a splurge, although a bottle is actually very decently priced. I had a couple and was pleasantly surprised. Very smooth, a pleasant honey/vanilla-sweetness, light and summery. Back home I bought a bottle and quickly fell out of love. It's been a while - so don't crucify me if I get it wrong - but I remember I thought it very one-dimensional, the vanilla (almost tasted like added vanilla-extract) was very boring after a while and I found nothing else to exite me. You'll expect more from a rum that boldy styles itself 'Imperial'. It's a classic case of overpromise, underdeliver.
Udmærket rom med fin eftersmag. Ikke i den søde ende. Pæn flaske
Un ron muy bueno a muy buen precio sabor suave para mi gusto demasiado suave
For 5 consecutive years was considered the best rum in the world and then was replaced by the Imperial Premium Blend also belongs to the Barceló range . Great to be served on the rocks and has a wonderful perfect serve : Ice on the rocks and a vanilla pod ( awakens the "secret" scents of this rum. It is definitely a rum to taste and take home for those who really know how to appreciate rum.
Dry without a burn, and still quite tasty, gives the impression of being stronger than it is, Straight up, on the rocks, or... my favorite, with soda.
Woody semi sweet rum, comes across your palate with a bit of burn but overall not to bad for the money.
Got this Rum for Christmas one year it was fantastic! Very smooth and full body love it a lot! Hard to find in the States.
Ce rhum aux touches de vanille ,d amande est tres bien equilibre avec un nez un fume et vanille.achete a la jonquera 22 euros pour ce prix et cette sualite c est imbatable.je le conseille pour commencer une collection dans se ruiner.note 8.1.
Delicioso para el ron y coca cola, la relación precio calidad para un ron que se mezcla con soda, es de10!
This rum will be part of my collection (my ten best), and it is a rum for an everyday sipping. For a good price a very good rum.
Not the rum for me is dry and too complex with a cigar, or to mix will be good, but is not too cheap to be mix.
I found it as christmas present from my father. Not my firts choice in bar, but still better as socks packing:)
One of the better rums in this price range from Dominica republic.
If you want a sipping rum that won't set you back $50 this isn't a bad choice. I would order this at the Iberostar in Punta Cana because all their other local stuff (Brugal) was less than drinkable. If you're on a budget in the USA and like rum, this is a good choice.
