Now this is some good stuff
Caramel and coffee on the nose. A full mouth feel with a lot of flavor, coffee, oak, caramel, and just a bit of sweetness and a medium finish. Pairs well with a cigar or a good steak.
First and foremost, a quality sipping rum without too much sweet or burn. Second, their is a hint of cinnamon that is interesting. Third, I agree for scotch or bourbon fans this is a good introduction to world of rum. Fourth, this is a 8 or 9 for most depending on the flavor profile you favor. End result: this is a quality rum to form a baseline. For example. You can then dial up the sweet e.g. Kirk and Sweeny 23. Or go any Mount Gay Premium for oak, etc. Since I like both up and down. I will start most my friends here and than serve up and down to let them figure out their preference. Of course they could stay right here in which case this rum is a 9. I got my bottle for $48.
I know many people who enjoy this rum and see the reviews of same. I found this raisiny and a bit hot. For a sipper I’d never sip. If you like old mono, dos Madeira’s etc you’ll enjoy this. Similar flavor profile.
This rum has exceptional Flavor with Oak on the nose and as the forward tasting note. There is a sweet honey note on the back end and just enough burn to let you know it is there. I have thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Very enjoyable sipper with slight sweetness. Makes an absolutely killer rum old fashioned as well!
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
