Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I saw this one in Denmark to a heavy price! Went to the border and gave ½ price :) LOVE IT
Not bad, but mostly sweet (caramel). And to be honest, for the (not so sweet) price and high age of this rum I expected a bit more (complexity).
The barcelo imperial was my first proper rum so I just had to get this.
A few people have commented on the bottle/packaging being cool but I think it is poor. The plastic bit in the middle fell off when I first opened it and the (artificial) cork is incredibly difficult to open (just took me literally 5mins to ease off!). I guess the tin is cool but I make a rule of never keeping them to optimise space on my shelf. I got this for about £80 from vinusvinis if I'd paid the £200 some UK websites are advertising it for I wouldn't be happy!
So it's lost a mark for packaging.
Vegetal nose and a bit of sugar but not lots.
Beautiful dark brown colour.
Some sugar but then lots of odd chemicals. Green grass and petrol?
The grass taste lingers for some time. And then an almost pleasant burn.
Just tasted back to back with the imperial and that is much better. Despite being a fraction of the price.
By no means a bad rum. Quite sweet with some oak and roasted nuts. It is really overpriced in Denmark, but you can get it elsewhere for less than 100 Euros, and then the deal is fair. But you can still find more interesting rums around at that price.
Denne rom havde jeg forventet mig meget af, når man taget prisen på 2250 kr. i betragtning, så burde den efter min smag være meget bedre.
En ellers meget blød og rund rom som desværre forsvinder hurtigt i munden.
Just like its younger cousin the anejo, this more exclusive product excells in holding back overt sweetness and instead putting herbal, spicy and nutty qualities. it has a light quality that I actually like, making it lively. Not as oaky as one might have thought for such old rum, but still with a vrty smotth and balanced mix of the aforementioned tastes.
Très bon rhum fortement ambré (30 ans!), avec un côté sucre de canne/caramel assez marqué. Rond et équilibré, il ne lui manque pas grand-chose pour être un coup de coeur (son prix trop élevé sans doute).
There is a fair nose.. Some pure alcohol in it.. The taste is strong and have some nice tones.. But the finish is whats kills it for me.. Pure alcohol and the finish fades down to cheap moonshine.. Not much sweetness in it..
