Matusalem Gran Reserva 23-year rum is the premium version of the Matusalem company's rum, aged an average of 23 years and distilled from molasses using the traditional solera process.
Given my "so so" expirence with the 15 year old little brother, I was very positively surprised with this one. The nose is round with toffee, vanilla, orange, fudge and cherry's. The palette is sweet with butterscotch, vanilla, a bit of chocolate, marcipan, orange peel and some nuttiness. Though it's sweet, I don't find it cloying as the lengthy finish is slightly earthy and tingling, upholding the order. (8,5)
First of all, the "23" is misleading. Years? I doubt it. For a rum that's supposedly been baking in wood in the tropics for a couple of decades, this rum lacks oakiness. Actually, it's not very complex at all. Nothing offensive, but nothing memorable, either. I can't imagine ever needing to buy another bottle of this, when there are so many really compelling rums out there already.
Can you drink it without coke? Yes. Is it a GOOD rum? No. Not the best I've tasted, not the worst. Would l buy it again? Properly not.
Není špatný, ale za tu cenu jsou chuťově lepší rumy.
It is an OK rum but for my taste... My aspects ware high about the quality about this rum!
Udemærket rom men ikke den beste til prisen
mangler lidt sødme
The age makes a difference. Less sweet more alchol flavor. Nice easy enjoyable rum
Přijde mi, že chutná prakticky stejné jako Matusalem 15y.
A very harmonious rum with much sweet and short finish.
Of the Matusalem rums I've tried this is the best, but it doesn't really stand out against other rums...
Very gentle vanilla nose and also gentle smooth vanilla body. Not very sweet and complex body, but decent gentle taste. I would prefer Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva to this one... Some caramel and smoke scents as well. Nice aftertaste where the vanilla body is slowly fading out with some sweetness. Not too aggressive abv.
Den står i skabet og det skal den blive ved med, den smager stadig godt
Pretty good rum, but for the price there are in my opinion better choices.
One of the best from Matusalem. Nice taste! And semi soft flavour
Ikke smagt. .
Bonne dégustation n'a pas la longueur ni la suptilite d un guada ou martiniquais mais vaut carement le détour un bon vieux rhum
I was a little bit disapointed by this Matusalem 23. It is not complex and no so different from its youger brother.
If I look at the price, I'll go for the 15 year for sure.
Sehr angenehmer Ron.
In der Nase feine Holznoten, Karamell und Kakau.
im Gaumen etwas scharf, nicht so süss wie der 15-year, Karamell, Vanille.
Schöner langanhaltender Abgang mit nachklingender süsse.
Ein Ron für jeden Tag.
Very pleasant Ron.
In the nose fine wood notes, caramel and kakau.
Slightly spicy in the palate, not as sweet as the 15-year, caramel, vanilla.
Beautiful long-lasting finish with a sweetish aftertaste.
A Ron for every day.
Un regal de douceur et d'épices. Un nez fabuleux. Reste dans le verre plus d'un jour après la dégustation.
Nothing bad in this rum, but it is quite simple and plain.
For something supposedly 23 years old the taste was surprisingly bland. I was kind of disappointed
Dufter meget af sprit. Det er ikke en man kan sniffe en hel masse til. Jeg fornemmer dog lidt sødme.
Smager af sprit. Den er en smule olieret og tam i munden. Slet ikke så sød som forventet. kraftig alkohol.
Dette er ikke en rom jeg vil investere i igen.
