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.
Rhum de caractères, fort et boisé. Je recommande.
Picked this up very cheaply in Tenerife a few years back. For the price its an excellent golden rum.
Easy drinking, good price for the quality. Better than much other pricey rums and a sure buy.
If you are a fan of the Dominican style rums, you will probably like the "4-B's"- Barcelo, Brugal, Botran, and Bermudez.
All are excellent in the higher product range of each.
If you like this one, try the ONYX version. It's even better.
I like this rum.
I think, this rum has both rich side and dry side.
There is sweetness as brown suger with vanilla flavor and also smooth nuts oil taste.
This price at this taste, it's really a bargain !
actually hard to describe because there weren't many significant characters in smell and taste. It's smooth and easily drinkable, maybe better to use it with Cola...
Nice amber color, smooth but not too sweet. Need 50 characters instead of 44. Happy now?
Smagte denne på en rommesse og var ret skuffet, ikke lige noget for mig
Tento rum nie je moc sladky, aspon podla mojho nazoru. Mne to vyhovuje. Flasa je naozaj krasna.
un bon rapport qualité/prix qui mérite un gros 6 voir 6.5
visiting casa de campo in DR, tried barcelo imperial on the rocks and was impressed with its smooth taste and fruity aroma. I bought a bottle and then another and now I drink it after dinner every weekend, I love the taste and dont get tired of it
Celkom priemerný, trocha alkoholový, trocha korenistý. Vypil som.
I found the allure of the bottle, the written tasting notes and numbered bottles appealing - however, the taste doesn’t match all the flare. First, I found alcohol to be the most predominant flavor of this rum; smooth not being a characteristic at all. If you can handle the burn, the flavors are average - a spicy, mildly sweet leathery finish. Personally, I’d save your money.
Was able to enjoy sampling the Imperial at a resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Low sugar content, with a mild flavour profile and medium alcohol finish, it is a decent rum to sip on especially for the price point (noting the price in DR). As it's not readily available here (in BC/ Canada) it was nice to try and I did enjoy several glasses.
Not something I would go hunting for, but definitely a nice rum to have on the shelf simply to add diversity to your collection
Good rum with strong aroma, slightly less so on the pallet but enjoyable from the first sip. Works as a sipper to finish the day. Not sweet at all. More after the wood / smoke than caramel that is hinted in the flavor. And a nice bottle to look at.
Great to share with friends and easy on the wallet.
Ein Rum für jeden Moment oder auch zum Mischen.
Preis Leistung ist nicht schlecht. Hatte keine großen Erwartungen an diesen Rum und wurde auch nicht überrascht.
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 was drinking this at a resort and at best it belongs in coke....
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.
