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.
Nice rum with a powerful aroma and warming feeling. Dry oak, smokey, leathery. It has a bite. Very good value for the money.
Nothing against it, but nothing for it either.
Plantation Barbados (http://www.rumratings.com/brands/642-plantation-barbados-5-year-rum) costs 2.5$ less and is a far better choice!
i am in San Juan and out for lunch and the waiter said he would give me his favourite rum. I was disappointed
When spirits are 38% alc like this one, I find that there is often a danger that the spirit can come across a bit dilute, and this is the case here. Soft oaky notes, but not enough ooomph. Pleasant enough with some nice sweet fruit to go with the oak but.....
Quite a good room, but I expected it to be much better than Gran Anejo, while it's very similar. A bit more harsh and vanilla flavored. Not a bad choice overall, but since Gran Anejo is much cheaper...right :)
Rum and not a bad price
Barcelo imperial delivers a very enticing bundle of smokey tobacco and fresh cane Juice with dried fruit. The overall experience is less refined than other more mature rums but its uniqueness makes this this a worthwhile purchase.
