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
visiting casa de campo in DR, tried barcelo imperial on the rocks and was impressed with its smooth taste and fruity aroma. I bought a bottle and then another and now I drink it after dinner every weekend, I love the taste and dont get tired of it
I found the allure of the bottle, the written tasting notes and numbered bottles appealing - however, the taste doesn’t match all the flare. First, I found alcohol to be the most predominant flavor of this rum; smooth not being a characteristic at all. If you can handle the burn, the flavors are average - a spicy, mildly sweet leathery finish. Personally, I’d save your money.
Was able to enjoy sampling the Imperial at a resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Low sugar content, with a mild flavour profile and medium alcohol finish, it is a decent rum to sip on especially for the price point (noting the price in DR). As it's not readily available here (in BC/ Canada) it was nice to try and I did enjoy several glasses.
Not something I would go hunting for, but definitely a nice rum to have on the shelf simply to add diversity to your collection
Good rum with strong aroma, slightly less so on the pallet but enjoyable from the first sip. Works as a sipper to finish the day. Not sweet at all. More after the wood / smoke than caramel that is hinted in the flavor. And a nice bottle to look at.
Great to share with friends and easy on the wallet.
Ein Rum für jeden Moment oder auch zum Mischen.
Preis Leistung ist nicht schlecht. Hatte keine großen Erwartungen an diesen Rum und wurde auch nicht überrascht.
