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.

I find Zafra 21 to be my favorite sipper. Not too sweet, really nice aftertaste. No burn, no metallic feel to it and a fair enough price. Is it worth almost twice the price as the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva? I'm on the line, but I think I would miss it if I didn't have it.

My favorite out of my 86 different rums, some costing twice as much.

True pirate rum! Aged nicely, strong and full of flavor. Sweetish, and aromatic. Hints of wood, vanilla. Stays with you for a while. A bit of danish navy stile.

Found it in Akurat bar, Stockholm, 2019

I was disappointed. Average tasting, not good with the first sip but then you can discover the nice taste of nut.

The taste is incredible and has such complexity and the longest finish I have experienced to date. Molasses and oakey spice smoothness. Yum

This is a grown up rum. I don’t get the whiskey references that others do, but I’m no a whiskey guy. However, upon letting it rest I get it. This is a rummy’s Rum though. And a darn good one.

Had this is a small rum shop in geneva for first time. Like the oakiness as a sipper - pretty dry in the mouth, good rum for scotch drinkers. An excellent addition to the cabinet for variety over other 18-21 sippers...
