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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Lovely dark amber in the glass with aromas of dark fruit and caramel sweetness. Sweet but not sickly and balanced nicely with the oaky dryness. Very nice.
This is a fabulous rum amazing taste and finish not too heavy love the wood tones and moderate spice, bought this in St Thomas on a cruise last week, it will go well with my collection. Have a bottle of Centenario 25 from Costa Rica and Angostura 1824 all are fabulous.
