One very good bourbon like rum with notes of cola, dark chocolate, mocha, coal, raisins, cranberries, cherries, cinnamon, chili, Demarara syrup, jasmine, coconut, grassy sugarcane, and tobacco.

This rum showcases a stunning hue and welcomes you with a velvety, inviting aroma. A subtle, gentle warmth accentuates its supreme quality, highlighting its richness. With every sip, this absolute top-tier rum reveals its latent strength and depth, offering a truly aromatic experience. Encased in an elegantly crafted bottle that mirrors its lavishness, it exudes sophistication. The taste is a delightful blend of smoothness and sweetness, leaving a lingering warmth. Very prominent notes of caramel, along with butterscotch, vanilla and oak offers a seamless drinkability.

The packaging and bottle lives and breathes quality. I absolutely love the heavy weight of the elegantly engineered cork-powered metal stopper. Admittedly, this doesn’t affect the actual taste of the rum in a blind tasting – but it does positively affect the overall experience of bringing out this bottle to indulge.

In summary, this rum is absolute world class. This evening I paired it with a Trinidad Media Luna Cuban cigar, an Oktoberfest bier chaser, candlelight and serenity.

En rigtigt god rom, der er virkelig meget god smag i den. Den er let drikkelig, og nok nærmere et 10 end et 9 tal.

Sugar: Estimated at 20-25 GPL.
This 40th anniversary edition comes in a collector edition box. The bottle is a classic design with a heavy metal top. Worth keeping the bottle out on display. The presentation is excellent, but the contents are excellent. The color is a chestnut brown. Darker than the 30th Anniversary edition. At 43% you get just a slight burn. It's smooth and sweet with a long lasting glow. Caramel, Butterscotch, Vanilla, Oak, and just a hint of nutmeg or a similar baking spice? Smooth drinking and it's hard to stop at just one. I am keeping this for special occasions, or whenever a rum drinking friend comes over. I am giving it a 9.5 but will have to round downwards to just a 9. I might bump this up after a few more tastings. Overall this is the best rum produced by Barcelo.

Scent: Darker tones of cofee, farine sugar, littl bit of chocolate

Taste includes dark farine sugar, coffee, dark toffee, medium spices, oak, peppar, chocolate

A complex, delicate and dark tasting rum. Simply elegant and amazing!

The complexity and quality of this rum is closer to a 10 than a 9, regarding the taste we all are different, but if you never tried a darker rum before this is the one to try!

Personal score: 9-9.5

A must buy!

A wonderfully balanced rum with just the perfect amount of slight burn. Light amber colored with taste of carmel. A rare rum to enjoy!

Ho trovato questo rum molto alcolico,poco espressivo , difficile da condividere se non con un doppio corona maduro- oscuro di Condega. Tutto sommato preferisco un Zapaca 23 dolce speziato e leggermente affumicato
