First he seems to slow, to weak, to gently. but the more you drink, you‘ll find out, that this smooth taste with warm honey notes is one of the best. he is charming and as with the girlfriend who never makes a queen out of herself, you are the only one who kows, that if she would like to, she would beat even Paris Hilton, but she is too shy. So you‘ll have her all for your own, enjoy.
Easy and sweet on the nose, lot of syrup and honey notes and definitely wood/oak. Bit on the sweet side with fruity notes and light woodish taste. Woody taste gets stronger on the after pallette, which also has long lasting spicy tickle.
I think it feels less aged than it actually is. Nevertheless, it's a very solid classical Dominican rum but to be honest - for it's price you can find more sophisticated rums for sure.
My reviews are aimed at those who sip rum neat, or on the rocks. Any rum can be diluted to taste better as a mixer.
This rum setup lacked character and depth. Every sip I was hoping for a better burst of tasting notes than I received. A faint woody and creamy nuance was all I could get and it was short lived and quickly overpowered by the power of the alcohol and it’s bite. Drinkable, but certainly won’t be buying a bottle ever again. There just isn’t enough there. I typically prefer rum on the rocks with my cigars. Anyone who does the same should know that a Connecticut cigar shouldn’t overpower the body of your rum. I would gladly recommend don papa Anniversario, Diplomatico, or even Zacapa over this and all three are a lower price.
Colour: light golden colour, pleasing to the eye
Body: as you swirl the rum, there is a lovely little bit of viscosity and the golden liquid develops some legs in the glass
Nose: sweet, caramel and toffee is the initial aroma, another whiff and the alcohol comes through and later on something faintly medicinal (not herby, but more chemical-ish)
Taste: it’s easy to hold and roll around your mouth, sweetness is definitely there, and a little bit of a metallic taste, not much of an aftertaste and there is an ever so slight burn
I had the Matusalem 23 without ice first and honestly, I liked sipping it neat. I don’t mix my rum, so then I tried it on the rocks and again the sweetness comes through though a bit muted. The metallic taste is still there, cannot figure out what it is, I guess I will learn to discern the more I drink.
Will I buy it again…I think I will, its a good sipper, works both with or without ice. My personal preference though is on the rocks. You can find it for S$75-85 in Singapore.
