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.
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.
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.
Un bon rhum de dégustation, puissant.
Nez peut être un peu agressif, mais agréable en bouche. Notes de caramel et boisées.
Note de réglisse en finale.
Sugar: 5 gpl. Soft on the nose and very smooth going down. Nice caramel aroma with a soft oak taste. Not a lot of burn but what there is sticks with you for a while. So soft it will sneak up on you in a mixed drink as it tends to get lost in the mix. If you don't like a strong rum taste in your mixed drink then this is a good rum. In a pinch this could be a sipping rum. Great value here in Canada at $39.
If you can't decide what to buy, then give this one a try.
Este ron es una desilusión total, a pesar de que es añejo su sabor no es agradable
big favourite of mine. Great value for performance. Love the almond/nut smell as well as the chocolate. Taste is great, sweet, yet with touch of alcohol. Just loving it
A really soft and gentle rum, fruity and sweet. At the Price a very decent rum, a good sipper, and great for desserts.
Smooth and well balanced. Would buy again, good value.
Drinked it a loton the domenican republ, pretty standerd but a good cheap one.
Jede produzierte Flasche ist mit verschiedenen Nummern versehen und gilt daher als echte Rarität. Kann ich im Geschmack nicht ganz nachvollziehen.
Had a few rounds of this at a bar in the dominican republic. It's a good rum with a nice and soft scent of caramel and figs. The palette offer notes of burt sugar, oak and caramel, with a rather smoothe finish. Good value.
Nothing against it, but nothing for it either.
Plantation Barbados (http://www.rumratings.com/brands/642-plantation-barbados-5-year-rum) costs 2.5$ less and is a far better choice!
i am in San Juan and out for lunch and the waiter said he would give me his favourite rum. I was disappointed
Mais pas extraordinaire, agréable sans laisser un souvenir impérissable
piacevoli sentori di liquirizia. veramente ottimo.
Ein guter Durchschnittsrum. Für mich zu scharf im Abgang. Pur mag ich ihn nicht
When spirits are 38% alc like this one, I find that there is often a danger that the spirit can come across a bit dilute, and this is the case here. Soft oaky notes, but not enough ooomph. Pleasant enough with some nice sweet fruit to go with the oak but.....
Quite a good room, but I expected it to be much better than Gran Anejo, while it's very similar. A bit more harsh and vanilla flavored. Not a bad choice overall, but since Gran Anejo is much cheaper...right :)
This is by far the best rum I've tasted; very very smooth, but with great flavour.
Lidt sprittet, lidt fad, men ellers god.
Rum and not a bad price
Barcelo imperial delivers a very enticing bundle of smokey tobacco and fresh cane Juice with dried fruit. The overall experience is less refined than other more mature rums but its uniqueness makes this this a worthwhile purchase.
This room is the best for me. Very good smell and testy, men's character, good with smoke, absolutely not for short drinks, and don't have difficult test but it the best for all what I have tested. Recommended to buy
Det var denne rom, som startede min interesse for rom.
