Zafra Master Reserve 21 is a premium rum distilled in Panama, at Las Cabras Distillery, by master blender Francisco "Don Pancho" Fernandez. The rum is made from molasses and aged in American bourbon barrels for at least 21 years.
Sehr netter Rum vom Meister Fernandez.
Schönes goldenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase trocken Früchte, Karamell, etwas herbe Kräuter und ein wenig Holz.
Im Gaumen auf einem rauchigen Holzbrett geschnittene reife tropische Früchte mit Vanillepudding und Karamell-Sauce.
Im Abgang schön geschmeidig und langanhaltend, eine dezente Süsse wie bei einer zartbitter Schokolade.
Ein durchaus süffiger Rum auch für Einsteiger.
Ich finde in dieser Preisklasse den Don Pancho 18yo bedeutend besser. Hat einen voluminöseren Körper
und ist deutlich komplexer.
Very nice rum from the master Fernandez.
Beautiful golden amber in the glass.
In the nose dry fruit, caramel, some tart herbs and a little wood.
In the palate, on a smoky wooden board cut ripe tropical fruits with vanilla pudding and caramel sauce.
In the finish, beautifully supple and long-lasting, a subtle sweetness like a dark chocolate.
A very tasty rum also for beginners.
I find the Don Pancho 18yo much better in this price class. Has a more voluminous body and is much more complex.
Color is slightly lighter than 30 year and smells a little dulled but get similar notes and taste. Overall good rum
A wonderfully smooth rum, with a slightly bourbon flavour. Excellent for sipping, not for mixing.
A dry finish with a light burn. Great sipping rum without the sweet heavy taste of a demerara rum.
This rum is in my top three behind Kirk & Sweeney 23 and El Dorado 21. Caramel and toasted nuts drive this smooth drinker and it doesn't disappoint. Finishes clean without being overly sugary. A pleasure to enjoy.
Was expecting a little more and already with the bottle was under whelmed. Price Tag is beyond it’s appeal.
Wunderbar, nicht süss, sehr ausgewogen und rund.
This is some of the best rum I have had. It is complex with a smooth finish. My only critism is the vanilla flavor comes through more than the others an hurts its balance. It reminds me of a better Zaya or a Zacapa with the vanilla turned up.
Zafra 21 year has very good flavors, but it is very dry, has a harsh burn and does not have the most pleasant afterburn. If you like dry rums, then you will like this one, and especially all the single malt whisky drinkers, you will love Zafra 21 year.
Great smokey flavor and a nice, sweet slow burn. Just sweet enough to sip, yet able to mix as well.
My new favorite drink
Smooth as a hot summer night
Try to drink a little bit warmer and you will find new emotions
Not too sweet and not too dry, a wonderful presentation of a ideal sipper with a moderate price point of around $50. Just another fine rum in master blender, Don Pancho Fernandez' repertoire. Nicely aged in bourbon casks for at least 21 years, Zafra provides rum aficionados with a premier sipper reflective of Panamanian charm.
Fantastic rum with a complex flavor and smooth aftertaste. Great for sipping and inexpensive to boot.
Not as sweet as expected, but it does not matter - it's also not sharp.
Un rhum que je ne connaissais pas du tout mais qui fût une agréable découverte! Il est vraiment bien abouti et très agréable à déguster!
Amazing taste! Smooth sweet and a powerfull after taste.
One of the rums you must have.
A very enjoyable rum. A nice flavor with a beautiful color. Its a simple yet elegant bottle. It pleased the crowd of IPA drinkers I was with.
Good for the soul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really liked this one, full body, loads of taste, to rate it higher I need it to be a bit sweet in the end, and maybe it has spent a bit to long in the barrel - as this taste is really pronounced = a bit to much.
En meget afbalanceret og rund rom. På ingen måde for sød, men heller ikke for 'sprittet'.
Den smager bedre nu mere man drikker af den.
Always drink it neat. Pairs well w/lobster or fries.
Dejlig rom med lidt anderledes og skarpere smag end de noget sødere rom jeg er vant til. Har godt af at stå i glasset et kvarters tid oplevede jeg.
I've been working on a rum collection for a bit. There have been some high and lows in the quality of the adventures, but this one is easily one of the best I've had yet.
Smooth, not overly viscous, layered and deep flavors. The bourbon aging brings a darker edge to the palate but it is not unwelcome nor does it overly dominate.
