Vůně příjemná je cítit vanilka. Barva krásné jantarová a chuť jemná ovocná, karamel. Velice jemný rum a příjemným jemným koncem.

This rum has a beautiful smell about her. She be a little sweet, with vanilla, caramel, and oak, but just below deck, just out of range, there be hints of fruit, spices, and a bit of smoke. As for taste, the subtle sweetness, vanilla, and oak come through as expected, and then there be a surprising hint of biscuit flavor! The real surprise be when all that turns into a flat, tart cherry flavor that be more like a port wine than a rum. Arrrgh! Those two shores should never meet! Bourbon be a beautiful beverage, but if there be ANY hint of bourbon in this rum from the agin' process, then I be no better than a biscuit-eatin' landlubber! Arrrgh!!!

Aged? Hmm...
Surprised to see all those top ratings here... I expect more character and body in a spirit of that age.
Nose: Spicy, sharp, dry fruits
Palate: Sharp, some chili and also some oak, but disappointingly poor in flavour and a quite short aftertaste (there is some afterburn, but only little to no aftertaste).

This bottle was gifted to me by a friend so it's free 99 price tag may be biasing my taste buds. That said, this is one of the best rums I've had. The perfect caramel color actually speaks to the flavor profile. Nice and sweet without being overbearing and the subtle hints of wood and fall fruits and spices are reminiscent of a sweeter bourbon, making it a good choice for whiskey and rum drinkers.

Now that my bottle is officially kicked in dream of the day a fresh bottle is back in my home bar.

Did a blind taste and this came in second. Not Plantation XO, but beat Kaniche Perfeccion. Was close with Santa Teresa

Nose of toffee, vanilla, honey. Not the slightest hint of alcohol. In the mouth is very buttery: viennoiserie, croissants. The finish is peppery. I guess this one is dry or almost dry, maybe a few grams. One of my favorites so far, the only problem is the bottle is empty so quickly!

zafra master reserve 21 presents with immediate vanilla, cane, and oak, in perfect balance. the experience is consistent on the palate in the sense that the flavor profile doesn't evolve - it simply is what it is - except to finally give way to a slightly "boozy" ethanol burn. may be drunk neat or over ice, but don't be ashamed to use it with a mixer.

Great smell, I could live the rest of my life in the bottle. Vanilla, maple, honey, oak. So smooth that my mouth doesn’t want to swallow it too quickly.

This is a beautiful rum from Panama.
Nice color. Heavy quality attractive label and bottle.

Smooth nose of warm caramel light molasses a bit of allspice.

The palette is very oily. Caramel, Sweet molasses cookie, and a lingering thick aftertaste of toffee and candy orange.
