Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I don't understand the low numbers this rum received. This Dominican rum is not overly sweet although there are some sweetness in the finish. Some vanilla flavor and no harsh burn...quite smooth. Nothing extraordinary about it otherwise I'd have given it a 9. Would make for a decent sipping rum if nothing better is available. Works great in mixed drinks and colas. Extremely versatile rum.
Still looking for a DR rum that I would truly appreciate. Better that the Brugals I have tried.
Barcelo Gran Anejo er en basis rom til drinks, kan drikkes ren men temmelig skrap i smagen.
I think this rum should be more appreciated, especially if you like rums that holds back on overt sweetness in favour of more fruity, herbal or nutty flavours. I especially appreciate its nutty and herbal qualitites, letting the sweetness take a back seat to this nice mix of tastes. Sure, it is not an extraordinary product, but very well made and price worthy given its qualities.
It tastes to much to alcohol. Good mixing rum.
In the end Barcelo is a good rum producer.
It's like Appleton V/x that is harsher with more vanilla and less molasses. Doesnt mix that well with diet coke as you would expect. Still it's okay for it's price.
Harsh and flat, wouldn't enjoy it neat There are far better options even for a mixer.
I had a small flask of this and It was hard for me, to drink it. Dry with no good taste. I wont drink this anymore...
Light, carmel and vanilla. Good for mixing drinks.
Smooth sipping, drinkeble, for mixes, etc. Good aged allround rum. Very nice!!!
un rhum pour les cocktails, assurément ! Un léger goût de café et de vanille, qui constitue une belle base pour le Cuba libre notamment ! Pas de gros plus vis à vis du anejo...
A mio gusto un rum che si presta molto per cocktail sopratutto per il cubalibre
Lascia sentori non troppo accentuati di invecchiamento
Il giusto compromesso per un gusto raffinato
Neni moc jemny, spis silny a trpky. Min sladky, spis panak
Think this one goes best with a Coke, not getting much else that than the ALCOHOL taste.....
You can either sip it or mix it with cola or put it in a cocktail, you can do basically everything with it and it wonn't offend you.
Like most Dominican Rums this one is also very smooth and easy to drink. But if the price difference to the Barcelo Imperial is not very large, what is normally not the case, you should go for the Imperial, if you are in need for a sipper. The Gran Anejo should be a little below 20€, while the Imperial is normally a little over 20€.
Introduced to sipping rum with this one, very smooth, great on the rocks, hard to find in the states, well WNY anyway
its a really basic rum for mix drinks nothing else its far from being a good rum
This rum is good. Even neat it has a lot of flavour, though i recomend it with cola.
Denne rom har en svag duft af vanilie, og den mangler smag, dybde og kompleksitet, men det er måske også for meget at kræve efter 4 års lagring. Den bør kun anvendes til drinks, da alt andet er spild af tid og smagsløg. Genkøb uaktuelt 👎
Den här rommen faller ganska platt.
Luktar och smakar lite vanilj och nöt men det finns inget djup i den. Smakar för mycket sprit i eftersmaken. Ett par droppar vatten eller lite is hjälper. Flaskan är dock trevlig
Always good to have this cheap one in the house, for your thirsty friends.. cuba libre
On the nose you find a bit caramel and alcohol. The characther is a little unrefined. The palette offers sweetish notes of caramel, barrel and some alcohol. The rum feels a little "young" but is decent for mixing.
