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.
Perfectly balanced rum, nothing to complain about, like
Malgré son vieillissement de 10 ans ce rhum n'est bon qu'à utiliser dans un Cuba libre.
Tasted yesterday, gift from a friend: I think is a good rum, recommended.
Merveilleux rhum en son genre. Très bon on the rocks
This is rum to mix with coke or to get it on the rocks.
The price was alright and just wanted to add this to my collection and it's great. smooth and mixes well with coke
puissant sur glace! comme dit précédemment idéal avec un cigare .
Il Barcelò è un ottimo rum, molto profumato e rinfrescante (provato anche con ghiaccio).
Nice, very smooth with light touch of alcohol for reasonable price. Good tip.
Fully flavoured rich rum. Incredeble nice price for such rum. Comes with complexity by adding small drip of water.
Ron Barcelo Imperial
Density, dark, copper, mellow mahogany.
Initially you can feel high alcohol in your nose, as soon as your open it with a bit of water, aromas such as honey, vanilla, chocolate, molasses start coming to you.
The palate is creamy, but not burning in the mouth just a little bit in the throat, sweet, chocolate, sugar cane, nuts, a reminder of oak definitely a little dry finish.
Makes a good rum and coke. Good rum taste with a good amount of after-burn. Sipped alone, it is better than many of its brethren in the same price range. Mixed with cola, it is better than Bacardi Gold and at a good price point. Not quite as good as Bacardi 8 as a sipper. Not nearly as good as Pyrat or some of the less expensive offerings (5 year, 8 year) from El Dorado, to provide other comparisons.
Strong oak smell. expected to find more of it in taste! it needs to brief to deliver. getting better and better! good value Rum.
This is actually the best Barcelo can do. Best neat or on rocks.
A gouter pour changer de voie dans le rhum. Plus sec que les classiques DDD ( don papa, diplomatico, dix neuf dix neuf ) il manque de charme et de parfum.
Prix mini donc foncez
A good entry in Dominican style rums. Sweet,smooth,light and for the price of 20€ you please your purse aswell. Good one!
Sweet, smooth and with a reasonable price. Makes this rum a treat.
I don't consider the Imperial a sipping rum, but it is my top choice to impress good friends on a good mojito or even better a dark and stormy.
Léger. A l'attaque un peu terreux et épicé, puis caramel et vanille.
Sérieux malgré son petit prix; il nous fait entrer de plain pied dans le monde des rhums.
This is a classic Dominican/Cuban style Rum. In Germany not much more expensive than the Barcelo Gran Anejo. It should be between 20-25 €. I have to add, this Rums really benefits if it is drunked with a cigar. This really can't be said about most rums in this price segment. I I add one point.
Un peu brut de décoffrage, un final intéressant, même si cela reste un rhum linéaire. Super rapport qualité prix. Je suis fan.
Ne příliš sladký rum, mě připomíná trochu bourbon, vyvážená chuť, dobře se mi pije. Klidně si ho příště koupím znovu.
I think this is definitely a top choice for sipping. Not too sweet or overly flavored. Smooth and easy to enjoying particularly with a nice cigar.
