82 Presidente 23-Year ratings

Sort by: Popularity | Date | Rating

Well over 1,000 aged dark rums enjoyed and Presidente Marti 23 year from Oliver & Oliver is on my Top 10 list after 15 years of rum tastings. It is superb, so smooth you can't imagine, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors. If you haven't tried yet this Dominican Republic produced but Cuban inspired 23 year Rum, I will guarantee it will set a brand new benchmark for your personal rum list.

If Diplomatico Reserva exclusiva was worth of the money it costs, it would taste like this.
Presidente 23yo is very good. It is not too sweet, it is not too dry. This is how well balanced rum taste like. It is very smooth, but still pretty sweet. But here comes the thing - Presidente does not use sugar to cover its weaknesses (like Zacapa or Diplomatico does), it just use it to complete its taste.

The only reason I am not giving 10 points is that I dont like this type of rum. I like more whiskey style or some specific taste mixes. But if you are looking for high-quality rum, you cant go wrong with this one.

After trying the 15 and 19 year it was time for the 23! Just a little better everytime you go more old. All three are very nice and not too much difference price-wise. You can't go wrong with either one. Allthough the 23 is the smoothest. Produced by Oliver&Oliver so prepare for a sweeter rum.

I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did given its score of only 7.9 (as of this review). I generally rate rums about a point below their consensus rating. But I think this is better than its consensus rating!

It's a little on the sweeter side, but that's one reason I like it. Somewhat simple rather than complex, and a bit syrupy, but very tasty. Smells and tastes of molasses, caramel, marzipan, honey, and oak. Easy to drink straight. A solid "9" in my opinion.

I thought I would try this rumas it was on offer, and decided to read the reviews. A nice rum to either drink neat or over ice, that is fairly sweet when sipping. A slightly oaky aroma. Smooth as it goes down without too much burn. I would recommend this and buy it again.

First I thought that it would be some imitation of Diplomatico :)
I didn’t have confidence in this rum, but opposite is true.
Very nice aroma…honey, coffee, wood, little bit fruity.. very nice taste
Perfect rum for sipping, also for rum beginners

ahh,så god…

Fantastic rum. A lot of aroma. Very complex and exiting. One of my absolute favoriter.

Quality-mature 8+/10 taste 8+/10. This is a nice Rum with little bit smoke, balance sweetness, a bit chocolate, a very little wood bourbon (nice balance it) & maybe some fruits. This is not dry (maybe very very little), very balance drink no thick but also no thin and there is not taste overepowering the others thats why the name Presidente (somewhat smooth no complex or strange in a bad way)... Overall an enought good aged drink.

The 19y is considered the best of range, I would have to agree, the 23y is smokier and a bit harsher, albeit not as sweet as 19y which might suit some.

Darker brown color. Sweet with long cherry alcohol tail.

& oliver
nice, smooth, fullbodied with some interesting fruit flavour (cherry?)
best from Presidente line.

In my opinion the best rum of the Dominican Republic. It complies with all the standards of true Caribbean rum. Well balanced taste, beautiful colour and what I like most about its appearance is the viscosity - I love watching the rum as it trickles on the wall of my glass. Definitely a must-try rum. 95%

Smooth, sweet and very little burn. A great sipping rum with leaves a great aftertaste lingering in tthe mouth

... si on est amateur de rhum de mélasse pmais pas aussi sucré qu'un DP

Vyborny rum od Oliver&Oliver. Kdyz si mam vybrat tak radsi 19.

En lækker lidt røget rom som er en super sippe rom

Great sweet and smooth taste but little too short and thin to get ten. Little stronger and its number ten rum.

Very nice sweet/burning taste but generally smooth.

Good choice

Super Preis Leistung
Leckerer Rum mit würzigen Aroma
Auch gut auf Eis

Zatím je to můj oblíbenec z rodiny Oliver. Rozhodně nejlepší ročník z Presidente.

Perfect balance between rich body and dim fresh fruity notes

Rum industriale realizzato con metodo "solera"... Chi conosce il vero funzionamento di questo metodo, sa bene che non è possibile riportare il numero di anni, proprio perché si mischiano diversi rum di diverse annate. Quindi diffidate da TUTTI i Rum che insieme al metodo solera riportano una qualsiasi data! Ad ogni modo è un distillato decente ma che non vale tutti i suoi soldi, quasi identico al Demerara di Rumnation, con la differenza che il Presidente 23 costa 1/3 in più.

All'olfatto: note prevalenti di caramello, cocco, tabacco. Leggera nota agrumata di chinotto.

Al gusto: è molto morbido, dolce quasi stucchevole.
Il caramello la fa da padrone, quindi un po' troppo monotono; il finale è medio e la bocca resta un po' impastata.

Rum "costruito" adatto ai novizi e agli amanti dei gusti dolci.

Consiglio per tutti: quando annusate un rum (o qualsiasi distillato), prima di inserire il naso e inspirare, effettuate un leggero soffio nel bicchiere e subito dopo provate a sentire i profumi. Questa operazione serve a svampare un po' la potenza dell'alcool che altrimenti vi porterebbe a bruciare nel naso e a coprire molti sentori.

Provate a berlo prima da solo, poi dopo aver mangiato del cioccolato fondente (dal 70 all'85% max), ed infine dopo aver mangiato una mezza fetta di arancia fresca (compresa buccia) con dello zucchero di canna sopra. ;-)


Industrial rum made with the "solera" method ... Who knows the true functioning of this method, knows very well that it is not possible to report the number of years, precisely because they mix different rums of different years. So be wary of ALL the Rum that along with the solera method report any date! However, it is a decent distillate but not worth all his money, almost identical to the Demerara of Rumnation, with the difference that President 23 costs 1/3 more.

On the nose: prevalent notes of caramel, coconut, tobacco. Light citrus note of chinotto.

To the taste: it is very soft, sweet almost cloying.
The caramel is king, so a bit 'too monotonous; the finish is medium and the mouth remains a bit 'kneaded. Rum "built" suitable for novices and lovers of sweet tastes.

Advice for everyone: when you smell a rum (or any distillate), before inserting the nose and inhaling, make a slight puff in the glass and immediately afterwards try to smell the perfumes. This operation serves to escape a little 'the power of alcohol that otherwise would lead to burn in the nose and cover many scents.
Try to drink it first alone, then after eating dark chocolate (70 to 85% max), and finally after eating a half slice of fresh orange (including peel) with brown sugar on top. ;-)
