Matusalem Gran Reserva
This was first produced in Santiago de Cuba over 130 years ago. It is aged using the Solera process, so on average the rums contained herein are 15 years old.
Artificially flavoured, doubt its 15yo at all
I doubt that this is made in true solera style, and internet has revealed that it gets its taste from macerated fruits and essences. That shows through, it is a bit artificial overall, with a good dollop of added sugar to round all the flavours. Sweet, light hispanic rum, should be sold as spiced rum.

This is a Cuban style rum and as a result is very light. It's extremely smooth and I find lacks complexity, and feels almost watery in the mouth.
If you're looking for an easy sipper, this is most definitely the one for you. It will go down a treat for those house guests that aren't big rum fans.

This is very smooth rum and one of my favourites, despite it recently coming to light that it's flavoured (and not labelled as such). Will this stop me from buying it however? Probably....for £20 I can get a bottle of Chairman's Reserve Spiced... ;)

I tried this a couple of days ago in a bar called "Firefly" in Worcester,I only meant to have one...... I left the bar after four!! The taste of this rum is beautiful. I highly recommend it.
