Now this is some good stuff
As most rum lovers I’ve started my rum journey among the Spanish styled ron. Nowadays there are not more than around 15 left in my cabinet. The ones that still stand out are especially two brands from Panama, Zafra and Malecon. Can maybe depend on that “Don Pancho” has been involved in both. So Zafra 21 is still one of my favourites to a reasonable price. It’s complex, not extremely sweet, smooth, has rich flavours and a very nice afterburn. If it wasn’t for the Zafra 30 I should have given it a 10, but now I stop with a 9 till I have tasted my Zafra 30.

We have never found the way to each other - its good smelling and tasting but there is something what bothers me. But try it for sure, its not a bad choice.
Oak and wood in the nose.
Lots of oak on the tongue, then the brand. I like this kind of rum, but unfortunately after swallowing it down - there is nothing left in the palate. This means: one point less.
But still a very good sipping rum for every day after dinner.
I'm continuing my journey into the world of rum and wow... I'm not sure I even know what to say about this, other than "incredible". Zacapa is still my first and I love it. But this... this may end up being a main favorite. I love everything about it. I don't think the oak is over-powering. It's an incredible balance that works perfectly.
I will be recommending this one highly.
This is one of the best rums out there that is fairly easy to find. The perfect balance between sweet and oak in my opinion, then again I'm a bourbon drinker. 21 years in oak for $40 is a steal.
Good, but it has too much harshness from oak. Sip able, but not for long. Drink it occasionally, but don't make it a regular.
une couleur ambre, un nez de fruit sec et de bois, des larmes bien épaisses malgré son degré d'alcool...ce rhum est un excellent digestif. Il ne possède pas un atout énorme mais il plaira vraiment au plus grand nombre par sa rondeur, une attaque franche, puis une belle douceur.
notes boisées du fût de bourbon, de tabac et de cuir,
je l'apprécie malgré le petit retour de l'alcool, et malgré la faible résistance en bouche.
