An excellent Dominican rum, Barceló Imperial was awarded a Gold Medal and also the coveted "Best In Category" title at the 2008 International Cane Spirits Festival. This is aged for between 4 and 10 years, and offers a superb flavour profile.
Nose: Fresh, buttery and creamy on the nose, with hints of sweet nuts, caramelised fruit and oak.
Palate: Dark brown sugar, toffee apples, stewed fruits, malmsey, oak and spices.
Finish: Long, good length and texture with hints of cedar wood and cigar leaves.
Now available in Canada ! yeah

I brought a bottle of this rum home with me recently from Punta Cana without having tried it first ,but once i was home and opened it, there was no comparison to other dark rums I normally drink, I thought it was the best rum Ive ever had and am very disappointed I didn't bring more home. Im thinking i'm not going to find this rum anywhere in Canada after searching the internet,
a good reason to return to the dominican as far as I'm concerned! :)

Rich, dark color. Nice nose with scents of caramel, vanilla, brown sugar and bourbon. Buttery on the palate and smooth going down with a slight burn to remind you of the alcohol content. Great sipping rum.
