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.
An everyday to go to priceworthy and always pleasant rum.
Truly very Google to try. Surprisingly good taste and complexity. One of the must-to-try.
Smager dejligt. Lidt til den søde side. Duft er fin, alt i alt en god rom
Got this locally on sale. Figured it to be worthy for the price ($47 from $61). Well, it's definitely decent. But, after allowing it to breath it flattened right out. So, it's a FAST rum. Enjoyable at a party cause it's good but kicking back makes it lack! Letting this breath a little, it's refinement tool starts to dull. It's simply a premium rum that can go the distance but there's heavy traffic when it's a marathon. It does reminds me of the good old days when Panama Red had it's run! Same, Same! & that ain't all that bad. That's why I downgraded this.
Smooth, sweet, full flavor, great sipper, enjoy this one...
Great recommendation from this site. This is my new favourite hands down. As usual I think letting it sit in a glass for a few hours dramatically improves the flavor. I get a lot of molasses/brown sugar/maple syrup flavor after it's been breathing, sometimes 10-24 hours. A bit of heat comes at the end but not unwelcome or unpleasant.
I want to start out by congratulating Zafra Rum co. for being way ahead of the game. I feel like every new product that I am seeing coming out is Bourbon aged something (wines, Scotches, ect.) and Zafra has been ahead of the game for almost a decade. The flavors on this rum are the perfect combination of bourbon light vanillas and char mixed with the sweet sugars that we all love in rum. Leaving you with a wonderful taste that lingers in your mouth long after you finish your sip. I coworker of mine loves his bourbons, but this is by far his favorite spirit he has ever had and has opened the world of rum up to him. I would probably place this somewhere in my top 10 favorite rums ever.
Lovely harmony, perfect balance between sweetness and wood.
Smooth and rich sipping rum go great with medium body cigar
like sweet rums. but this is a mellow sweet rum. you can taste this rum for a minute or to after you drink it. if you want to try a nice mellow rum. this is it. I dont give out too many 9's
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.
