As of this review, this rum has a score of 8.3, while the Presidente 23 has a score of 8.0. I think this one is a little better, as the 23 year has a bit more oak finish to it and a little less sweetness.

Smells and tastes of molasses, caramel, marzipan, and honey. Doesn't have the oaky finish of the 23, which is nice. A very good rum, especially at the price!

Well over 500 aged dark rums enjoyed and Presidente Marti 19 year from Oliver & Oliver is easily on my Top 10 list after 15 years of tastings. It is superb, so smooth you can't imagine, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors. Only a marginal difference to the 23 year old rum and surprisingly small price difference for an extra 4 years of maturing. If you haven't tried yet this Dominican Republic produced but Cuban inspired 19 year Rum, I will guarantee it will set a brand new benchmark for your personal rum list.

Here's my top 20 list:
1. Legendario 15y
2. Plantation Barbados XO 20th Anniversary
3. Ron Esclavo XO
4. Millonario XO and 15y
5. El Dorado 25y
6. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva / SVG / Ambassador
7. Presidente Marti 23y and 19y
8. Pusser's 15y
9. Cubaney 18y
10. Black Tot
11. El Pasador de Oro XO and Gran Reserva
12. Edmundo Dantes 15y
13. Pampero Aniversario
14. Bacoo 12y
15. Ron Esclavo 15y and 12y
16. Punta Cana XOX
17. Exquisito 1985
18. Cubaney 15y
19. Punta Cana 15y Tesoro
20. Unhiq XO


All aspects of tasting like aroma, sweetness or afterburn are just wonderful. Excellent for celebrations: after the very first glass you wish to have the whole bottle for yourself and to get tanked up!

Der Presidente Marti 19 ist der Mittlere von 3 Brüdern - da ich die beiden andeten noch nicht verkosten konnte bleibe ich einen direkten Vergleich schuldig. Der Presidente 19 ist ein sehr süsser Rum der stark an Weihnachten erinnert - Dörrobst (v.a. Rosinen), Schokolade und Lebkuchen. Vom Anfang bis zum Ende sehr mild. Leider gehöre ich zu der Hälfte der Mennschheit die Rosinen als “vergammelte Weintrauben“ bezeichnet und einfach nicht leiden kann, daher ist der Rum nicht so nach meinem Geschmack. Neutral betrachtet jedoch kein schlechter Tropfen. Freue mich auf den Tag wenn ich den grossen 24jährigen Bruder zesten kann!

My first experience with the Presidente range and a very, very nice surprise.
The bottle design does not really look too promising and the label and stickers on it look even cheap I would say but do not get fooled by the packaging as it hides some really nice rum.
Smells great and the flavour reveals hints of cherries and chocolate. A bit sweeter than expected.
Somewhat similar to Diplomatico RE in a way but more complex and interesting experience at almost the same price. So far one of the best rums I tried hence 9.

Musím maličko popíchnout Olivera :-) je to opravdu dobrý rum se silnou chutí na patře a krásnou vůní. Chuťově jinde než 15, ale v množství rumů které Oliver dělá mi trochu zapadnul do průměru. To nic nemění na skutečnosti,že se jedná o velice lahodný rum.

When you smell on your glass it literally smells like oak and smoke...pleasant odor...

The taste confirmed what you already smelled with a good punch of alcohol and slight burn while sipping one by one...

Not as good though in my opinion as the centenario 20...enjoyed that one more...its between an 7.5 and 8.0...

Een lekkere zoete rum en toegankelijk voor iedereen.

Yes , it has a lot of sugar and colouring added but if your in the mood for a very easy to sip sweet rum , then this is the fella for you !
Its right up there with ED12 and DRE in taste but maybe more interesting ? After pouring a dram or three into my tasting glass i could sense liquorice , toffee , caramel and some spices..
Lovely mixture of heat and sweet and spicey all at the same time then absolutely no burn on the way down the throat . Nice long aftertaste , this bottle won't last long which is unfortunate as not available here in Australia !

I have tried all three aged Presidente rums (15, 19 and 23) and this one tastes best for me and also my friends. It is much smoother than 15, a little less than 23, but with stronger flavour. Also a little more sweet than 23. And very complex taste. One of my 5 favourites...

Un rhum typique espagnol qui passe très bien doux et sucré

Pas convaincu par celui la, ni bon ni mauvais. Il ne déplaira à personne mais ne plaira pas vraiment à tout le monde. Vu aussi bien à 20 € qu'à 50 €. A 20 c'est une très bonne affaire, à 50 c'est beaucoup beaucoup trop cher.

Very smooth, simple and sweet. Works all the time with hint of wood

Good taste, a little sharp and maybe a little too oily. Some hints of tobacco. I wonder why my rum guide does not feature this one...

This rum deserves to be famous like Diplomatico Reserva. Good drink if you have a visit.

very sweet . very easy sipping. good price/quality

Nu har jeg smagt alle tre i serien, og jeg synes 23'eren er bedst, både med hensyn til duft og smag. Dog er forskellen på de tre ikke ikke særlig stor.

Hvis jeg kunne, vill jeg give følgende ratings:

23: 8,5
19: 8,4
15: 8,3

Dejlig dejlig rom, smager fantastisk.. Specielt til prisen er denne sammen med 15 og 23 års noget af det bedste (i min optik). Vælge dog 23 års da den holder noget længere og fylder noget mere i munden

i started with the 15y presidente and loved it .. sweet chocolate taste ... but the 19y is even smoother ... cant wait to try the 23y

It's rather surprising to see Cuban name on Dominican rum. But don't get confused. In every sip it's pure DR

Vůní hodně podobný diplomaticu Res.Exl.12y, který mi ale ve finále asi chutná víc.
Každopádně se těším i na ostatní prezidenty:)

Ideální na večerní srkání. Ještě musím udělat přímé srovnání s patnáctiletou variantou.

zajimavej rum po tresnich a vino, zajimavy, michal se bude vracet

Dufter dejligt, smager dejligt, og har en skøn eftersmag. Den er lige en tand bedre en 15'eren.
