Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Quite a decent rum, first try is really sharp aftertaste, second try gives a smooth feel. The aroma of the wooden casks. Can be sipped.
Coffee, vanilla, not very long finish without personnality. A good one for cocktail or rocks & coke.

Very decent, very smooth rum, with wide sugary sweetness and body with hints of coffee and sweet spice. It has very slight after taste burn. I recommend this one as good bargain with high benefit cost. It's very drinkable rum, decent mixer and simple sipper (with no distinctive or surprising taste, however).
The Dominicans scored big with this one! I can't believe all the poor or so-so ratings. This rum is fantastic. It's good iced cold and it also makes a punchy rum and coke. This should serve as the standard for "Anejo" rums! It is very balanced, starts with a nice rum bite, finishes smooth with a very subtle sweetness, and is not over oaked. The aroma lingers in the nose and the pallet for a while maintaining a vanilla and nutty finish. Molasses, fruit, and sugar are not the centerpiece of this Anejo. This is a "hotter" more punchy aged rum.
As always I taste my rum neat. Not a full bodied smooth rum but no overpowering alcohol or burn which is not bad for a rum priced pretty much on par with a Havana club blanco. Spicy and not overly sweet. Pretty decent.
A surprising bargain for a simple sipping rum. No burn.
Nice smooth taste of younger ron. I like it. Alcohol is not sharp so it can be drinked well. Not so sweet if someone seek for this taste.
Its ok bit not that smooth to sip. The Imperial is a massive step up from this.
Buen color y sabor, algo fuerte al paladar, se percibe el roble. Para ingerir con hielo y/o con cola.
Easy drinking, no depth but still enjoyable, did not mix it, should have...
Heavy taste with alcohol, except that I did not taste anything else. It was similar to a brandy.
Bon rhum, aux notes de tabac et de café, somme toute assez simple, sans grande longueur. Plutôt sec selon moi. Ne laisse pas un souvenir impérissable, mais honorable.
Not a nice drink straight, alcohol taste is very present. Decent mixer.
Barcelo is a rum, that everyone can drink, there is some flouvor from raisen other fruit, it dont have the High alcohol so it kills the taste. Try it it worthy the price
Precis på gränsen till drickbar rent men blir tyvärr för stark spritsmak i slutet.
Bra doft mycket vanilj, de ger bra utslag och smak i cola så blandmässigt är den mycket bra. Prisvärd i Sverige sett till kvalité.
Not much to say - tastes like light, column-made rum.
Close to Barcelo Imperial. however a little thiner than Imperial.
Good for everyday rum.
Neurazí, nenadchne nicméně celkem dobře pitelný a chuť je velice jemná.
En ok rom med vaniljsmak. Skall provas i drinkar. Ok.
Not a good sipping rum but works very well as a mixing rum.
Kind of rum that has nothing special but can be a solution in a club that only offers crap as it isn't bad. Strong alcohol taste, not well balanced, only for mixing. For Cuba libre this rum is somewhere in between Brugal XV (a bit better as smoother) and Havana 7 in my opinion
Pretty good, notes of coffee and toffee. Not that big of a burn.
Had this in Mexico it was this or matusalem 10 year old having had matusalem before went for barcelo however would prefer matusalem but this is still ok slightly rough to start but get a good sweet flavour from it it's a good price for what it is
