Smooth and complex. Sweet and complex. Great for splurge night or gift for someone who has everything.

Origenes Reserva 30 Years from Panama was bottled by Don Pancho Fernandez. It was aged for 30 years on Panama in ex-Bourbon barrels. As far as I know, the origines are normally sweetened a little. It does not seem to be the case with this one. Unfortunately, it only has a strength of 40%.

Smell: A smell of wax, white tea and dried fruits is initially noticeable. The dried fruits are quite dominant. You can tell by the smell that it is a Panama rum. Panama rums tend to be rather subtle, even if they are old. This one is not very intense either. The wax is more in the background, I notice red dried fruits such as cranberries and grapes that are reminiscent of wine. In the background there are more aromas of light wood from a bourbon barrel, vanilla and some sugar cane sweetness. The smell is not complex. Deeper in the glass, I perceive some metallic aromas and some earthy barrel aromas.

Taste: it starts off slightly sweet with burnt sugar and tannins with light wood. The wood also brings a little vanilla. The dried fruits come up, especially the dried cranberries, the rum becomes a little drier in the mouth. The spiciness rises and the tannins flare up again with metallic notes of the distillate. That’s also the finish. I miss the complexity and heavy flavors of a 30 year old rum.

Aftertaste: vanilla, wood, wax

The rum is below my expectations, maybe because of the 30 years aging I expected something extraordinary and got nothing special. The intensity is weak, the RA BC Haiti 2004 is even more intense although it's 14 years younger. The taste is also not complex and without heavy aromas that I would expect in such an old rum.

Overall rating: 83 points

Sweetness: 1.5/5

Deep dark rich colour.

Alcohol, a bit of sugar and some lemon on the nose. Complex sugary start.

Woody and deep aged taste, quite bitter finish.

Over-aged and not smooth enough. Quite sharp finish.

Nice presentation box. The rum in the glass shows really slow thick legs. It has a nice balance in smell of vanilla and oak. Minimum after burn, the after taste of this rum just goes on for ages. It has you smacking your lips together thinking about the complexity of flavours you just had from this rum.

Completo, complejo, sabroso, una delicia desde el principio hasta el final.
Lastima el precio y la disponibilidad, compraria a centenas.

Good, not too sweet and with a suprême aftertaste.

I když na lahvi je psáno "Aged 30 Years", dle podrobnějších specifikací na stránkách jde jen o "směs až třicetiletých rumů" z Panamy. Takže celkem sprosté klamání zákazníků. Toto jsem zjistil až dnes, s odstupem několika dnů od ochutnávky a sepsání recenze, čímž se moje pochybnosti z ochutnávky vysvětlily.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Panama
Aroma: Cedr, kakao. Hřejivá kořenitost, lesní med. Trochu ve stylu dominikánských rumů od Oliver and Oliver. (85 b)
Chuť: Nasládlý jen lehce. Cedr, mírně větrový (anýz, badyán). Tělo vzhledem k označení 30 yo dost tenké, chybí plnost, hloubka a vyzrálost. (85 b)
Body: 85/100
Shrnutí: Naprosto průměrný a zapomenutelný kousek, s ohledem na cenu (u nás 10 000, v zahraničí tak 9 000) by šlo o naprosto nesmyslný nákup. Buďte obezřetní a nenechte se napálit.
Normálně by 85 bodů odpovídalo osmičce, ale za ten podvod snižuju na 6.

- ve vůni částečná Zacapa, sladkost, ale silnější, vanilka, sušené ovoce, pomeranč, koření
- chuť sladká, vanilka, dřevo, ovoce, ozve se pepř, končí opět jemností
- závěr slaďoučký, jemný
Don Pancho 30 years méně sladší kopie Zacapy Centenario 30y Anniverario za ½ ceny

Amazing rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a rare Don Pancho 30y. Beautiful old school bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Dry oakiness to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Short and dry burn at the end. This is a Whisky lovers rum.

Fantastic says it all! Off the hook from nose to the loooooong finish. Very tasty well balanced, just what you would expect from a rum of this caliber. Gonna run you $400/bottle but hey what the heck its great.
