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.

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.

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.

Pokud sáhnete po rumech z Panamy, očekávejte většinou silné kořeněné rumy. Ve vůni i chuti dominuje dřevo, v závěru cítím ořechy. V poměru cena/výkon ale mám jiné favority.

Silky smooth. Nice mouth feel. Subtle and balanced. Light acetone nose ( which isn’t my favorite) that drops this to a 9. Otherwise, a perfect rum.

I like this one. I’d keep it in the rotation. Complex flavors. Smooth.
