The Artesano 21 matured under tropical sun for 20 years before it was given its finishing in a bourbon barrel for another 21 months. Only 89 bottles were bottled with a strength of 55.7%.

Smell: I am greeted by a very nice, sweet and deep caramel smell. I haven't had a Panama rum like that. It's a combination of caramel and honey with vanilla. This is followed by dried fruits like cranberries, raisins and fresh coconut meat.
A very floral aromatic smell. I still notice sugar syrup or marshmallow and in the background the typical Panama flavor. Very balanced on the sweet side, not overly complex.

Taste: sweet start with burnt sugar and dark dried fruits. The rum immediately increases in spice and spreads astringency in the mouth. He dashes forward with barrel aromas and almost overwhelms me with red dried fruits. Inexperienced palates have to be careful here. I also notice light earthy aromas. There are mainly dried cherries, cranberries, figs and cocoa.
The finish is sharp and long. I perceive the barrel aromas, wood, vanilla with burnt sugar again.

Aftertaste: dried fruits, orange zest, floral notes, wood, cocoa

A very surprising Panama rum, sweet and elegant. Don't ask me how that one was made, but that's how Panama Rum should be.
It is nice and fruity, has more complexity on the palate than in the smell. This is the first Panama Rum that got me excited.

This Ron del Artesano was able to store in ex-bourbon barrels in Panama for 20 years and then mature again for 21 months in a fresh soft oak barrel in Germany. Then it was bottled unfiltered in a barrel strength of 55.7% in a very limited number of 89 bottles. Of course, without additives.

The rum is heavy and oily in the glass. It takes until the rum shows some streaks. In the nose, the rum is not overly strong, but nevertheless very complex. Fruit and vanilla make the nose sweet and fresh. Lots of wood, cocoa and chocolate are a little heavier. Spicy notes also resonate. If you take your time, the rum is slowly giving more and more of itself. On the palate, it is incredibly balanced. I haven't had a rum like that before. And this despite the barrel's strength. The alcohol is perfectly integrated and carries aromas of vanilla, tropical fruits, some cocoa or chocolate, which are captured by the wood. It's never hard in the mouth. The aromas are evenly distributed while drinking. The finish is beautifully elegant. The aromas do not remain too strong and the wood note dominates with a little sweetness.

The 21-year-old Artesano is a force. But at about 180 euros also not cheap. I hesitated for a long time until it was sold out. Now a sample had to do it. I don't know if the rum is worth so much money but it is one of the best rums I've ever drunk. I really recommend the Artesano Tasting. Top.

Dieser Ron del Artesano konnte 20 Jahre in Panama im tropischen Klima in Ex-Bourbon Fässern lagern und dann noch einmal für 21 Monate in einem frischen Weicheichefass in Deutschland nach reifen. Dann wurde er ungefiltert in einer Fass Stärke von 55,7% in sehr limitierter Anzahl von 89 Flaschen abgefüllt. Natürlich ohne Zusatzstoffe.

Der Rum ist im Glas schwer und ölig. Es dauert bis der Rum am Glas Schlieren zieht. In der Nase ist der Rum nicht übermäßig kräftig aber dennoch sehr komplex. Frucht und Vanille machen die Nase Süß und frisch. Viel Holz, Kakao und Schokolade dann wieder etwas schwerer. Auch würzige Noten schwingen mit. Nimmt man sich Zeit gibt der Rum langsam immer mehr von sich preis. Am Gaumen ist er unglaublich ausbalanciert. Habe ich so noch nicht gehabt. Und das trotz der Fass Stärke. Der Alkohol ist absolut perfekt eingebunden und trägt Aromen von Vanille, tropischen Früchten, etwas Kakao oder Schokolade, welche durch das Holz eingefangen werden. Dabei ist er im Mund nie schwer. Die Aromen sind beim Trinken gleichmäßig verteilt. Der Abgang ist schön elegant. Nicht zu kräftig bleiben die Aromen bestehen, wobei hier die Holznote mit etwas Süße dominiert.

Der 21 jährige Artesano ist eine Wucht. Aber mit ca. 180 Euro auch nicht billig. Ich habe lange gezögert bis er ausverkauft war. Jetzt musste es ein Sample richten. Ob der Rum das viele Geld wert ist, weiß ich nicht. Einer der besten Rums die ich bisher getrunken habe war er alle mal. Ich kann das Artesano Tasting wirklich empfehlen. Top.
