Rhum de caractères, fort et boisé. Je recommande.

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.

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 ( costs 2.5$ less and is a far better choice!

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.
Dejlig eftersmag.

Rum and not a bad price

Posted almost 6 years ago by Leon from Germany with 34 ratings

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.

Best Dominican rum I've had so far. Nutty, smooth, rich and lingering.

Granted that I prefer Agricole RVM, the first time I've drink Barcelò, I remained amazed about the colour: dark ambrè but with very red glares, a delight for the eyes. But the taste... for an anejo, of 40° I supposed it was more velvet, instead I've found a RVM too lively for my preferences.
Inappropriate for a night on the beach...

Highly abraisive on the tounge at first, but slowly comes out with some good oak and vanilla taste. Best on the rocks or with cola.
