Matusalem Rum 15 Gran Reserva Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Enticing aromas of sweet spice, Christmas cake and toasty oak.

    Palate: Very approachable – soft and smooth mouthfeel, with plenty of rich, fruity spice, but still clean and elegant.

    Finish: Not especially long, but everything in check.

    I like Cuban style gold rums. Legendairo, Havana club 7 / 15, Mount gay, santiargo de Cuba etc so thought I would try this, and in a word it's 'Perfect' well worth the little extra if you like a good neat rum now and then

    This is a superb sipping rum. I have never been able to find a rum that I could just add ice and sip until I accidentally came across this Ron Matusalem 15 year old Gran Reserva. To add a chunk of ice and leave it to cool is just delicious with lovely aromas and spices coating your throat on the way down. I got a bottle in a duty free shop in Lanzarotte and it cost me less than €20 great find and price – only wish it was the same price on this site too! Definitely one to try as I don't think you will be disappointed.

    This is the best tasting rum I have had. I love it so much. The taste is so rich and mixed with my coke it is my favorite drink. Thank you for getting it to me quickly.

    I rate this rum quite highly for what it is. I mean it IS a bit of a marketing confection the "15 years" thing is meaningless as it's in a solera system so could be as little as one drop that old in your bottle. And then the flavour - yes they flavour it. You can taste vanilla and something fruity. ALKO - the Finnish Government testing organisation have this at 5g of added sugar per litre which actually is very low for a "premium" rum, meaning much of the sweetness and richness is actually from aging. They also have it at at 5g of additives, probably flavourings which is lower than a full on spiced rum but clearly not pure either. Either way the result is very good. It's easy to drink neat and has layers of flavours and longish finish all adding up to a fairly sophisticated drink

    Very nice with a lovely caramel flavour. I really like Matusalem rums, especially with cola. But as for "nothing artificial....not sweetened" comments....I'm afraid it most certainly is. Matusalem rums have always been flavoured, with prunes and vanilla, giving them that smooth, fruity taste. But then they got taken over and the new firm uses artificial flavours too. 90% of S.American and rums are flavoured and sweetened.

    There's nothing artificial about this rum. It's not sweetened or glossed up, it stands up for itself. Honey, caramel, hints of treacle with that molasses bite just wavering on the end. The flavor develops as it leave your mouth intensify with that woody oaky kind of realness. This isn't a bells and whistles rum that's going to give you an instant WOW like the El Doroado 15/Diplomatico Grand Reserva, but what it is, is very true to what I imagine it set out to be. Traditional & straight forward.

    15YO for that price, good value. Can't wait for it to arrive :)

  • Freddy lebanon 6 September 2013

    Not bad value for a 15YRo and preferable to appletons of similar value but as a sipper could use a bit more bite flavour wise like an El Dorado 8 even!!Still i like the aftertaste to the point of making my way through this bottle readily

    Brought this along with Mount Gay Extra Old and Havanna Club 7 year old, the Metusalem was the smoothest, although the others were good. For me it was the one I would choose stright or on the rocks, fantastic rum in this price range.

  • lesist 24 December 2010

    please notice that it is a solera rum, so the rum contains rums that have been aged for a maximum of 15 years, the average is much lower. it says spirit of cuba because matusalem was originated in cuba but left the country due to political issues and is now producing in the dominican republic. so they are producing a cuban style rum but being located in the dom rep.

  • lesist 24 December 2010

    matusalem has launched a 18 and 23 solera gran reserva (18 for the us markets and 23 for european markets). please try the 23, it is absolutely awesome. much more balance, a bit sweeter, complex, crispier than the 15 AND much better than the zacapa 23 for me

  • Mr T 20 December 2010

    question why Dominican Republic;when it says the spirit of Cuba on it

  • scyrene 14 August 2010

    This is pretty good stuff, but not the best qpr on the market.
