Smooth and delicate with a tiny burn and some sweetness. Probably solera. A good amount of bourbon flavor.

Per the reviews on this site, I picked up a bottle for about 45 bucks. The initial feeling is smooth followed by a full tongue burn that nicely lingers after you are done with your sip. Nice mellow and balanced flavors. You can taste the bourbon notes. The first sip is really wonderful. A great bottle for those who appreciate aged rum.

This is a very good rum which flows very softly and mild through your throat. It has marvelous tastes but is not as sweet as I like my rums! I had to let it breath for at least 20 minutes to be able to drink it neet and trying to enjoy it. It is a perfect rum, but I am not that professional yet to deal with it because of the strong burn and lack of sweetness.

I like everything about this rum… until the finish. I’m getting a strange rotten nut flavor, like oxidized vermouth? I can’t quiet place it, but without this flaw it would be a solid 9/10 for me.

I will have to go back to it and dive deeper.

Total Wine had this rated at 95 and at $48 I thought I'd give it a try. Very nice full flavored rum.

A well-balanced superb sipper. This rum is fantastic and is my favorite, just add ice.

Much better than I anticipated. Nice sipper, smooth yet complex in taste.

Very good, but does not really show its age. Not a great bargain, either. There is nothing wrong with it, and it is very much a Panamanian rum with a lower sweetness than a Barbados or even Nicaraguan rum, but I can't help wanting a bit more from it for the price.

Best by itself or with a little ice.

The first impression is interesting, but only the first. The second is already disappointing. It is true that the core of rum's aromas is noticeable, but the aroma is poor and not very aromatic. The taste is very flat, simple and extremely short. Leaves little behind. Although it is noticeably less sweet than I expected, it is difficult to find layers of aromas there. This is one of the weakest rums I have ever drunk. I honestly don't feel like going back to it. I can choose from many other and cheaper ones that are better. I am not satisfied with my purchase. It is a huge disappointment for me. I believe that it is not worth special attention. I am surprised by the amount of high marks. Everyone likes something else, but I don't understand why to like this one, because it offers little.
