Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
I am still looking for my second 10. This is very good, and the price is very reasonable for such a fine rum. I can nearly get a 9 out of this, but a little too much burn for me. The finish is very tasty though. You can't go wrong with this choice. Worth a try and worth every cent.
Dejlig sod og kompleks rom. Synes den minder lidt om El Dorado 15. Derfor er dette ikke en jeg vil erhverve mig p.t da jeg har rigeligt inden søde ende.
So good. A hearty, balanced, not cloyingly sweet for being aged bourbon barrel. Delicious in an old fashioned. The Master of Panamanian rum
Had it in a bar where everythung was 7,95-9,95. For that money its worth of it. Relativey nice balanced Rum, not too sweet.
For the price, I expected a bit better. A little oaky aftertaste, light on the molasses. Have it listed as a 5.5 on my scale, but can't get a half bottle here.
Hluboká dubově-dřevitá vůně se silným hutným tělem a protáhlou dochutí je natolik protkaná podbízivostí tabáku či hutného kakaa, až máte i jako nekuřák rázem velmi sugestivní potřebu pravého nefalšovaného karibského doutníku. Opravdu originální iluze, ovšem ona výrazná dřevitost dráždí mé chuťové pohárky a neustále lehce překračuje hranici příjemné míry, která mi nedovoluje udělit vyšší hodnocení... A jedna perlička pro zajímavost – v Panama City jsem při jednodenním a jednonočním pobytu, ke svému překvapení, o Zafru nikde ani nezavadil. I velmi protřelý a rumuznalý taxikář José nevěděl o Zafře zhola nic, na rozdíl od Abuela či Cartavia, které označil za jasnou jedničku a dvojku v celé Panamě. Konkrétně Abuelo nechybělo jak v každé drobné večerce (za podobné ceny jako u nás), tak si svou propagaci obřími billboardy pečlivě pohlídalo i na modernizovaném letišti Tocumen.
Was. Given this as a promotion gift and it was amazing. Every glass. Was a treat and I would definitely buy one myself.
Where I live in Houston, there's a shortage of great rums. With the exception of Zacapa's offerings, this is the best rum you will find. Very smooth and delicious with a cube or two of ice. Nothing comes close for the price (around $42 where I live.)
Received my first bottle of this as a birthday present. Went well with the cigars
A very very good rum, almost as good as the Quorhum 30 (I love that one the most). Very harmonic and smooth.
This is a sweet but also elegant rum. Your first try will make you want more due to its smoothness, however, after your second, you will probably feel the strong molasses.
Not bad, but has to breathe. I will have to taste it later and rate then.
A strong flavor, but somehow it didn't hit me right. I guess it's good, but I can't really recommend this one.
The aroma that came from the bottle upon opening...wow! A touch on the sweet side but awesome: leather, slight wood smell and somewhere between dried plums & dried apricots (but I can't put my finger on it).
The viscosity of the liquid seems a little thicker than the average drink. Making it roll off your tongue in a smoother fashion.
As for the taste, spot on.
Is it a 9.... not for me but would definitely give it an 8.5
Well, I opened my bottle of Zafra and I can say that it is unique and enjoyable. The flavor is complex, and to me, it has an earthy and grassy flavor to it. The flavor remains consistent throughout the drink. Now I have to disclose some news that will hurt some folks feelings. I mix the rum with either Diet Dr. Pepper or Diet Coke, depending on which flavor I am looking for. I like starting one drink with Zafra to get that grassy flavor and then I have my second drink made with Clement 6 to give me that earthy - dirty flavor. I like them both and recommend them to your collection. Zafra is good for every 1 out of 6 or 7 drinks to prevent getting tired of it and appreciating it when you do want something GREAT, yet uniquely different. Cheers,
God sød rom, som ikke kommer i top, men et køb værd
Tasted. Nice rum. I can see why most of people like it. Rich wide taste, sweet mollase with distinctive nutty (wallnut, hazelnut) taste afterward. Sweet mollase vanilla smell. Very, very nice sipper.
Well, i bought only 1 bottle, didn't taste bad, but for that price I could buy a better one.
I bought a bottle when I was in Dubai airport a few years ago, and I remember I loved it. I can't get too in-depth here, as I can't remember everything, but I know it was smooth, really great rum. I was recently going through a bunch of old photos, and came across one I took of the bottle, which was a reminder to myself to be sure and buy it again, ha ha. I'm in Hawaii now, haven't seen it here, but I'm looking for it.
It has been difficult to find in Sweden, finally found it in Denmark. Smells simular to other quality rums. The taste is round bot not that sweet as I expected 5-6 in scale of 1-10. It becomes more complex wirh longer aftertaste after around 15-20 minutes in glass. The bottle mentoned by others is beutyful👍🏻🙏🏻
White oak after bourbon was a great choice. Very distinguished nose and mouth. This one doesnt bore you for a while
Vraiment un rhum smooth, si vous aimé le Santa Theresa 1796, vous allez adorer ce rhum.
Not bad. Not bad at all. Flavors of molasses at the front with a smooth finish. GAI.
Poutavá barva mědi, ve vůni dub, exotické ovoce/koření, tabák. Bylo mi ctí :-)
