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.
Tasty, but not quite great
I don't consider the Imperial a sipping rum, but it is my top choice to impress good friends on a good mojito or even better a dark and stormy.
Léger. A l'attaque un peu terreux et épicé, puis caramel et vanille.
Sérieux malgré son petit prix; il nous fait entrer de plain pied dans le monde des rhums.
This is a classic Dominican/Cuban style Rum. In Germany not much more expensive than the Barcelo Gran Anejo. It should be between 20-25 €. I have to add, this Rums really benefits if it is drunked with a cigar. This really can't be said about most rums in this price segment. I I add one point.
Ne příliš sladký rum, mě připomíná trochu bourbon, vyvážená chuť, dobře se mi pije. Klidně si ho příště koupím znovu.
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.
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
