Recommendable to most
We can compare this rum to the 23yo Zacapa and so did i.
It has a nice mahagony colour, in the nose a little sting of alcohol side by side with fruits and chocolate. The first sip: dark chocolate,delighting sweetness and again the little alcohol afterburn. Not as smooth as Zacapa 23yo but i might prefer that way. At least i know that i'm having a rum and not candy. Great rum and half the price of the Zacapa 23yo at least here in Europe. Not too common to buy tho.
Just as the well known Zacapa (also from Guatemala), the Malteco is not made from molasse, but from sugar cane sirup. This production method is a guatemalan specialty.
Nose: caramel, oak, vanilla. Slightly spicy. Great, well balanced body.
Palate: very smooth and well balanced, some hints of chili and smoke maybe. Unfortunately, the aftertaste is not lasting very long. But this is still one of the top rums I've ever tasted. Definitely worth buying!
Close to the 10 year Malteco, a little less alcoholic taste even with more alcohol...caramel, cinnamon, coconut, spicy, elegant...I prefer the 10year for like 10€ less, but still a great rum. The level of Diplomatico 12 but less sweet.
Se volete farvi un giro per i Rhum del Guatemala, il Malteco 15 years merita una citazione, simile al più conosciuto Zacapa, ma rispetto a questo mostra oltre il potente sentore di Melassa altre facce lo distinguono. Se volete prendere un bel rhum del Guatemala ve lo consiglio, spesa limitata rispetto a uno Zacapa ma risultato non inferiore.
On the nose extremely rich and sweet with raisins, vanilla and some prominent coconut among the flavors of the palate.
Lots of sweetheart shortly after intake, with cream caramel and honey.
