Sort by: Popularity | Date | Rating

Well over 400 aged dark rums enjoyed and Presidente Marti 23 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. 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.

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

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…

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

In Italian and English

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. ;-)


Schönes sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase überraschend frisch und fruchtig im Hintergrund Noten von getoastetem Holz.
Im Gaumen gesellen sich Aromen von Karamell, von ganz viel Karamell und noch mehr Karamell zu Vanille und Eichenholz.
Im Abgang verbleiben die Aromen von Karamell und Vanille sehr lang.
Etwas gewichtiger als der 15 jährige. Ein typischer süsser O&O Ron für Einsteiger und Geniesser.

Beautiful full amber in the glass.
In the nose surprisingly fresh and fruity in the background notes of toasted wood.
On the palate, flavors of caramel joined by lots of caramel and more caramel to vanilla and oak.
In the finish, the aromas of caramel and vanilla remain very long.
Somewhat more weighty than the 15 year old. A typical sweet O & O Ron for beginners and connoisseurs.

Je to fajn rum, ale pro mou hudu je moc nakouřený. Cítil jsem to takové nauzené jako z udírny a nešlo mi to moc do krku. Jak říkám, rum je to dobrý,ale raději sáhnu po 19Y.

Lidt smag af chokolade og nødder. En sød rom, som ikke er for meget. Skal absolut smages igen. Ville jeg købe en hel flaske? Måske ikke, da der er andre, som er lidt bedre i samme prisleje. Som f.eks Esclavo XO.

Tastes a little bit of nuts. Its a little sweet and nice to drink. One of the better rum. Theres nothing wrong if you buy it.

Ein guter und süßer Rum. Er ist sehr zu Empfehlen.

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

Denne 23 års Presidente er en utrolig dejlig rom, specielt når man tager prisen i betragtning.

Smagen er dejlig rund, kraftig og holder ganske længe. Lige et niveau over både 15 års og 19 års. (8,5 i min bog)

I big suprise for me. For that money cca 48€ its a must. Complex and round taste, mild

I'd already appreciated the 19-year variant with the highest rating, therefore this one couldn't perform any worse. We drained the bottle on occasion of a friend's doctoral degree celebration. Cheers Stanley!


God sød rom måske lige en anelse for sød endda. stikker lidt på tungen, men alt i alt en fin rom

super god rom. God sød rom, uden at være så sod som de fleste Riise. Jeg tror den er blandt de 5 bedste rom jeg har smagt.

Lidt for mørk til mig. Dog noget sødme og en fin duft.

Smells like honey and chocolate, tastes like chocolate coffee.

Ikke smagt. .

Dejlig fylde, en lille bitte smule parfume anes, god duft. God sødme, dog en kende for meget i min smag. Eftersmagen er god, men ikke videre lang. Halv varighed af eksempelvis el dorado 15.

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.
