It's rum, and it doesn't taste like gasoline, so there's not anything predominantly bad going on with it. It's just not anything special.

Very tasty but lower rate than it should be due to price

It's a bit like the Gran Anejo but with less nuts and more oak. Same sweetness. Expected more

Had this first while on a work trip to the Dominican Republic. Was a great cap to several busy days.
Once I returned state side, picked up a bottle for home. While it was still a great soft sipper, it lacked some of the wow factor I first got from it.

Brown sugar and toffee notes that were soothing on the tongue and a nice warming finish by the time you get done with 2 fingers.

Would strongly recommend to any one that enjoys a good rum with a great Dominican cigar.

...hard to rate as it’s not really something special and it’s also not as good as hoped.

Mam ho ve skrini uz dlouho. Zaujalo me baleni. Ale chut i vune spis zklamaly. Suchy. Koreneny. Mozna i trochu dreva kuze.
Pouzivam ho s třtinovým cukrem a maslem - na panev, zkaramelizovat a je z toho bomba přeliv na zmrzlinu.

I am not one for trying out rums because of popularity, but I kept hearing about this rum, so I had to give it a go. The result was a pleasant rum, that will please most rum-lovers.

Nose: Brown sugar, wood and a subtle hint of some fruit, maybe dried apples
Taste: Light, dry and well-rounded with notes of wood, vanilla and raisins
Overall: This is really a good rum. It doesn´t blow your mind, but it is well above average, especially for the price. If it is available to you, then you should consider picking up a bottle.

a real rum with vanilla and caramel in flavor and aroma. Clear taste of oak and pepper

24th rum, Barcelo Imperial is a nice full budied rum, to conclude 24 rums 2018.
Coffee and orange on nose, than strong but warming alcohol, smooth with long warm conclusion.
