Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I have got it for EUR 12.00 and I think that it's very good choice for this price...there are lot of more expensive rums with lower quality.
Není ani špatný, ani výborný, takový klasický průměr. Dá se pít. Proč ne ?
Bueno, precio elevado para lo que es, pero buen sabor y calidad
Un ron que ni siquiera con Cola sabe bien...muy ordinario.
Para combinar en cocktails como el Cuba libre o similares (con cola). No lo tomaría solo de ninguna manera, con mucho alcohol y prácticamente sin sabores complejos. lo dicho, para copas
If you are searching for a rhum to mix with coke that doesn't suck and that's cheap enough, this could be it. Not too sweet, not too strong, not smoked, not spiced, not harsh on the throat. You can taste it's there but without standing out on any particular field. A good workhorse, nothing more and nothing less.
Bought for 13.5€ in Spain
Just alcohol and thats it. Something I would consider the lowest end for drinking straight. May be better with coke.
Poured neat, it smells great. Rum, a little oak, a little caramel... The first sip has a lot of heat, though, and isn't very smooth. Would be an okay mixer, but not a sipper.
Pale Amber colour with alcohol and wood on the nose. Light harsh burn with cask and burnt sugar taste. This would make a good rum and coke, but I was only given 2 oz to rate. A dry ,short finish with a good burn.
Ok as a mixer. In terms of value for money, get the better Ron Barcelo’s
Ein sehr guter Rum zum Mixen mit Cola. Dafür hervorragend geeignet. Hatten die 1,75 Liter Flasche mit Freunden zur Verfügung.
Levnější vladší bratříček Barcela Imperial. Barcelo Anejo není tolik vyzrálé i když také už chytá chutě po whisky, převládá klasický rum. Nic extra, ale vzhledem k ceně rozumné pití.
Nice sweet caramel taste. Smells good, really good in a rum-cola. Not really a sipper. Aftertaste is sweet and perfect for cocktails.
Medium rum, neither intimidated nor offend, l would use it as rum in mixed drinks as a self-drinking. the price 13 eur
Nice rum, I would recommend to drink it with some ice cubes. the price is good for the quality.
Mixed very well with cola and it is not very expensive
Nose is attractive with vanilla and alcohol content.
Palate is complex, but bitterness stifles enjoy.
Pleasure is not great, it squeezes the head slightly, relaxes the body, easily digestible.
Cuban/Spanish style mainstream.
Too sweet but at the same time not very much complexity of flavor...
For Sipping (not for sipping)
For mixing (go for more balanced mixers rather than sweet one otherwise you will get gummy bear like taste out of it)
The store I work for actually sent back this product because when we sampled a bottle after shipment the rum was overpowered with a heavy metallic taste. That we believe to be from the copper cap. Long story short our sales-rep agreed with us and we sent them back.
Un ron que nos enseña que las cosas se pueden hacer bien.
Con un costo justo puedes probar un muy buen ron.
Tried the Barcelo Imperial and Anejo back-to-back and both are quite a big disappointment. The Imperial has much darker color than the Anejo. Both have a very strong alcohol smell to them. Anejo tastes like alcohol with a hint of aged rum flavors hidden deep enough but ultimately this is not a neat sipper.
Very cheap rum with a distinctive sweet flavor, maybe a little bit more harsh than it's "Gran Anejo" brother. Still a very bad investment.
Light coloured and not very complex but likeable enough. Bought in Spain for 15 euro so certainly value for money.
When you need something decent in a pinch and there isn't much in the cabinet this will suffice mixed with soda. The barcelo brand is very good when it comes to the gran anjeo and the imperial but this is about the same as captain Morgan spiced rum
