That's some good stuff
Scored this on a whim. Ignoring the fact that the extra tall bottle had a hard time fitting in my bar.. my solution was to leave on the bar top.. THUS... it went rather quickly. Delicious. Smooth. Enjoyed Neat on a cold evening. Will enjoy again soon.
This is a great rum, especially for its price point. I paid $60 for a bottle and am hard pressed to find anything close to it at that price. But let's ignore that for a minute. Zafra has a great nose with many of the intense rum notes you would expect in spades, caramel, molasses, vanilla, plantain. Wonderful color and smoothness. Be careful, it's easy to go through a bottle in no time.
I love the aroma of this rum and the flavor is quite unique. It seems almost buttery in nature. This has many excellent flavors to it. I will probably have to come back to amend my review. This is definitely a sipping rum. Albeit rated at 80 proof there is no burn to this rum...just a gentle embracing warmth that fades into a delightful aftertaste. Some sweetness to it...almost a kettlecorn flavor. Definitely recommended.
A wonderfully concise and smooth flavor make it a joy to sip from time to time, but the oak occasionally drowns out all else in this one keeping me from going back more often. A great value for the experience though.
And boy am I happy I did. Even though I have a little cold I can tell there is a lot of complexity to the rum that I will be able to fully enjoy once the cold has cleared up. Really opens up with a little breathing time.
I'm still very new to the rum world but this is hands down the most complex, and smooth rums I have ever had. this rum will be hard to share. Goes very well with a good cigar.
This rum is as good as its billing. It is so smooth, the long barrel aging really comes up big. If you are starting an aged rum selection for your bar, this should be one of the staples to always have.
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.
