Now this is some good stuff
Finally rum of my dreams!!! I was honestly hesitant, but in the end I wanted to take a bottle of this higher nectar. Deep ruby color, it takes a few seconds to appreciate the sheer complexity. Soft and warm but at the same time really exciting. For me, it's definitely higher than the Zacapa 25y. I'll drink only on special occasions, 'cause for my taste this one is the absolute perfection!
Rum Nation is gifted brand. When I was deciding between this and their 12yo Barbados, I should have take the Bajan, but that's because I prefer Bajan rums. The bottle is absolutely gorgeous, and what you find inside is whole new dimensions of luxury.
Sugar: 20 gpl. This is a top shelf special occasion rum! The stylish bottle shows off the deep ruby colour which I suspect is from some aging in port casks. As for taste I detect a taste of tobacco, oak, port, and some sweetness which seems to remind me of raisins or prunes. All the flavours are well balanced and this rum is extremely smooth. The smell of this rum in the glass makes you savour the aroma several times before that first sip. I have to say this is one of the best rums I have tasted so far. My only regret is that I did not purchase more. If you see this rum in your local then buy 2 bottles; because the first one won't last long!
A lot of fruit on the nose, with some spice but also more than a bit of alcohol burn.
Beautiful bronzed dark brown colour.
Pears at first to taste and incredibly smooth, with a pleasant afterburn. Almost more like a calvados than a rum but with some unmistakable sugary notes too.
I'm getting towards the end of my bottle and will be buying another as soon as I do.
Definitely one of my favourite rums, I've never tasted better.
Rum Nation Panama 21-Year comes in a nice bottle, very similar to the Cartavio XO.
When this rum have been resting in the glass for a while you get mild sweet aromas of vanilla, fruit and some oak. In mouth this rum is smooth and you can taste some orange, chocolate and oak. You can also taste a bit of spice and smoke. This rum is very smooth in the throat, like velvet. The finish is long and very smooth with some oak, spice, fruit and even some smoke and sherry in there.
A very nice sipping rum.
