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.
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.
Nästan ingen sötma alls! Spritig eftersmak! Den passar inte mina smaklökar alls:-/!
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
