First sip of Matusalem gran Reserva 15yo, a deep gold coloured rum. I'm quite delighted by its exceptionally complex taste: there is aromatic tobacco, sweet tropical fruits, molasses, spices, and a long vanilla finish. This rum definitely benefits from the solera aging process – fractional blending, where younger rums are mixed with older rums in a continuous aging process. The slow release of aromas imparts complexity and depth. For me, Matusalem has a distinct and refined flavour profile, a super sipper. Highly recommended for those who are looking for complexity and refinement. I imagine it will be fantastic in rum desserts and coffee.

Je to levne. Karamel, lehce drevo, vanilka, trocha suseneho ovoce. Kdo ma rad spanelsky typ rumu, tak za tu cenu to je fajn.

Not the most tasty, nor the least for a sipping rum. A bit of a unique flavour. Perfectly smooth to be sippable, but not nearly as full-bodied as you would expect a 15-year aged rum would be.

Golden color. Smooth enough to sip neat but also good mixed with coke. Very easy to drink on a real hot day.Not too heavy aftertaste.

This is just an ordinary rum. Usual rum notes with not so great complexity.
