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
Light citrus and orange notes with vanilla and chocolate. Very sweet with some leather notes. A good one but slightly below its big brother.
Жжёный сахар с фруктовым оттенком в аромате. Спирт присутствует, но не сильно. Во вкусе - опять-таки жжёный сахар, однако в меру сладкий, не приторный. Спиртяга присутствует, но не критично. Послевкусие недолгое и приятное. Хороший ром "как он есть".
Burnt sugar with a fruity hint in aroma. Spirit harshness is present, but low. Taste - again burnt sugar, not too sweet, with some spirit bite. Aftertaste is short and pleasant. A good solid rum.
Appereance is amazing. Bottle design is very good.
This rum is made not from melasses, but sugarcane juice. Other things are same for spanish style.
Nose - intensive and pretty complex, no spirit. Rich vanilla, dried fruits, caramel.
Palate: very sweet and veeeery smooth: sugarcane, rich vanilla, dried fruits and bowed carrot which is dissonant here.
Not bad for the rum made in column. It has own character.
I found that empty glass smells very good with sugarcane and vanilla.
Very easy to drink and the morning is clear.
After being opened ~1 month it becomes better and not too overly sweet.
Got this rum on Curasao for 23$. What a bargain, exceptional good for this price.
It's rich in taste and spicy (not harsh).
You should give this rum some time to breath, 10-20min would be fine, because at the beginning there is a alcohol note in the smell.
I love the oil, it's warm and fills your mouth with flavours.
The finish is warm and spicy, some light sweetness remains on the palet. This rum is very very good.
Smell: oak, caramel, some molasses, dry fruits (plum, raisins), mandarine, toasted barrel
Taste: caramel, burned suggar, rum raisins, mandarine, vanilla, spice, oak, some bitterness (not much)
Value (21€): 4/5
