Sweet, smooth and with a reasonable price. Makes this rum a treat.

A very pleasant sipper. Not nearly as strong tasting as it's aroma suggests. Smooth.

Μπήκα σε μια κάβα με διάθεση να δοκιμάσω κάτι διαφορετικό το μάτι μου έπεσε σε αυτο το ρούμι. Παω σπίτι βάζω ένα ποτήρι... ήπια τρεις γουλιές πόλυ σκληρό για τον ουρανίσκο μου ευτυχώς την επόμενη μετα η σύζυγος μου με ενημέρωσε ότι έσπασε το μπουκαλι

A colleague of mine gave me this rum as a present.
I must say the way the rum is presented (design, color of the rum) did make me expect a whole lot. But, although it's a tasty rum, it's not very special.

A gift of this pushed me back into the world of fine rums, a superb standard.

Un des premiers rhum gouté lors de mon séjour en république Dominicaine. j'ai vraiment aimé son goût et c'est grâce à lui que je souhaite connaitre d'autres bon rhum.

I decided to try this Dominican rum and the takeaway is quite good. Not too sweet, quite smooth and enjoyable. Bought it in NYC as we do not have this kind in PA. Very nice for the price.

Good rum but nothing special. Very easy to drink, quite oaky but it doesn't give you much else to sparkle the mind...

Rhum à cocktails, avec du coca ou en mojito mais pas sec.

I am perhaps taken in by the products of other islands, or maybe I have been seduced by rums in other price points. But, I no longer see the Imperial as a sipping rum. It's solid, no doubt - with a shallower version of the characteristics of newer rums from other producers. But, it doesn't light my fire.

Na prvý pohľad zaujme fľaša, ktorej budíkový tvar s logom vyzerá exkluzívne. (asi to ovplyvnilo aj mňa :)). Vôňa nie je zaujímavá, drevitá - dubová. Rum je suchý s prenikavou drevitou chuťou, jemne korenistý s nadýcham tabaku a jablka. Dochuť je trpká až jemne horká. Príjemne zahreje. Celkovo ma veľmi neoslovil, mám radšej jemne násladle rumy, tento mi silne pripomína až whisky.
