Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
started out straight of course.. a fairly delightful rum I must say. This is closer to the Brugal line of whites produced in the DR but less spice a bit smoother an lighter in the mouth, throat, and less spicy on the tongue.
Very light, yet has a bold rum flavor, very well done rum great for straight up tasting. If you like a white rum that tastes like rum and not over distilled or filtered then this is it. Also one that does not add sugar or additives I might add. Pure rum not bogus stuff in this one!
At this price range it is slightly lower cost than white rums close to it and also much tastier. One of the best white rums at this price point for sipping or mixing.
Matusalem Platino describes itself as a "dry rum" but it doesn't seem to be so. It does have a crispness normally associated with dry white rums but at the same time has more sweetness than one would expect. It does resemble agricole rum slightly. There seems some vanilla to it along with a nice medium burn to it. It also appears to have a little butteriness to it as well. Now the finish is pretty dry leaving a little tingle on the tongue. Overall a good mixing rum. Definitely recommended for fruit-based cocktails, especially those heavy on citrus.
One of few white rums I enjoyed drinking straight. Very smooth, very pleasant, very rum-like. Of course there are batter ones, but not for this price.
This is a great plata/ white rum. It has a decent flavor on the palate and the nose, albeit a bit of alcohol. You will feel a bit of burn from this, but I've yet to find a white rum that you won't. It mixes seamlessly into cocktails, almost too much so at times. Careful what flavored you pair with it if you want to taste the rum. If you have someone who doesn't like rum, this is the rum for them in a cocktail. Inexpensive at around $12 a bottle. Can't beat this for drink mixing.
The taste of this rum is many steps above the other white rums in the under $20 category. Made in the Dominican Republic closely following an old Cuban recipe passed down through this family for generations.
I recommend this for anyone that wants a good rum to mix with, but I would stay away from drinking this straight.
I've had success with this one in mojitos.
In my opinion, this is a good white rum that is better than lower tier rums and brands, but I like many other whites better. Try the 3 year El Dorado. Try the Plantation 3 Star. Spend just a little more and get the Pritchard's Chrystal rum - yes from the US of A!
Along with El dorado 3 yr, one of the best I have tried for mixing. Not quite as complex or interesting as Banks 5 Island but much cheaper.
I had a few drinks of Matusalem Platino while vacationing in Oaxaca Mexico. Pretty decent bottle and label design. Very strong alcohol to the nose and palate if neat sipped. Mixes rather well with your favorite soda drinks.
This has a kind of floral perfume to it, a light vanilla note and a TOUCH of sweetness - a grassy sugarcane sweetness. It is really rounded. This is the favourite in my bar atm!
In my quest to find a better white rum than Plantation 3 Star Artisinal, I chose this one only because Vizcaya Cristal is not available where I live. Both of them are Cuban style and made in the neighboring Dominican Republic, but the 3 Star is from several different islands. A side by side comparison was the only way to test them. The 3 Star is still the clear cut winner with flavors, but the Matusalem Platino will add no flavors at all to your authentic Cuban daiquiri. It is also more readily available than the 3 Star.
Its a good product for the Cubas Libres, it has an excellet price and you can find it everywere!
Relativ weich, eher trocken mit etwas fruchtiger Note und etwas Bitterschokolade.
My preference for mixing with coke. Higher quality rum than common the Havana club or Bacardi options...
No lo recomiendo ni para hacer coctelería, no tiene las escencias basicas de un ron.
Ron que siempre hay que tener en el bar, excelente para convinar con lo que sea, sabor definido y fuerte, resistente a lo que se le convine.
nu inteleg de ce are nota asa mare. este o bautura fara personalitate. prea spirtoasa. n-am simtit nici o aroma mai deosebita.
Not to much of a fan. has to be mixed with something to enjoy it at all. I think that there are much better options for the price range. Was looking forward to it and was disappointed.
Good for mixing drinks, but I can get Don Q for less $.
This is an amazing rhum. The best for me to taste it is in a ti punch with lime, sugar cane and ice. It gives a very good and typical taste.
This is also an ideal rhum for mojitos if you want to some change.
Good cocktail rum but still I would choose Havana Club 3.
Comparing to other light rums, this one stands out. Nice easy flavor. A perfect rum for mixing, especially in the states should you not have Cuban rum
This rum is okay. It's not super expensive, but it's somewhat tasty. It seems smooth at first, but it can feel sharp after a few more sips. It's quite viscous, and it has a bit of afterburn as well. It doesn't have a strong presence in mixed drinks, but it's still okay have around if there aren't any other alternatives.
Not a bad white rum if you want to replace your standard rum.
For a white rum in the speed rail you could do a lot worse, its a clean and crisp whilst being warm and buttery at the same time. Perfect for mixing in cocktails.
