Enough flavor to compete with sweet coke.

Not for sipping.

Very easy going and by no means a complex affair but perhaps a good starter rum. To sweet for my liking though.

Expanding my view to Panama with both the 10yo and 15yo Malteco in front of me (both in 50ml tasters) I must say I am positively surprised. Ok, too much sugar for my taste but this 10 year old is showing some character as well.

A typical nose with a little vanilla and a strange mix of floral notes/rotten wood (in a good way!) that I haven't smelled before. On the palate this carries on with a bit of chocolate/coffee bitterness which really helps to balance the added sugar. The base of this rum is really decent, way better than the English Harbour 5yo I had the other day, and it goes down easily. I don't see the alcohol burn some reviewers mention but it does let you know it is 40%, just as it should.

Though the 15yo is a bit better in every way (but also much alike) pricewise my nod goes to the 10yo. This can be bought for €20,= over here and I think that is a bargain for the quality of this rum. The 15yo can not justify its higher pricetag (here between €30,= and €40,= online) as it simply adds too little. Too sweet for my taste but if you like them a little sweeter (without becoming a liquid bonbon) this is a must-try!

This rum is limited to the essentials. It's not complex and a little bit artificial.
The profile is vanilla with sweetness, a little bit like Plantation XO but much simpler.
It's an inexpensive rum for people who want it simple and sweet.
However, does not quite suit my taste, I lack additional flavors.

I get vanilla with sweetness, some caramel and some wood in the nose.
The taste starts also with vanilla, caramel, the sweetness is rising, then spice and wood at the end.
Not very spicy and quite mild rum.
I would rate it with 50 points.

Nose: sweetness, caramel and vanilla, wood
Flavor: vanilla, caramel, intensifying sweetness, spice, wood

I find it mild and intense in taste, but too simple.

Sweetness: 3/5
Spice: 1.5/5
Fruit: 1/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Complexity: 1/5
Value (18€): 2/5
Experience level: just beginners

Zapach: Kompot ze śliwek, wanilia, kawa, karmel, nugat oraz beczka.

Smak: Karmel, wanilia, czekolada, suszone owoce, melasa oraz beczka. W smaku jest lekko słodka i dobrze pijalna mimo wyraznego rozgrzewania od alkoholu

W smaku jest naprawdę porządnie - taki rum który można stawiać za przykład rumu starzonego.Patrząc na stosunek cena/jakość (około 80-100pln w Czechach) to kurcze - muszę przyznać że pozytywnie odbieram ten rum. Szczególnie cieszy informacja o gwarantowanych 10 latach oraz mały bonusik w mocy - 40,5%.

Ocena: 76/100

Rum from Panama have a special place in my heart, so I was excited to try this Malteco 10, but sadly I found it to be very underwhelming.

Nose: Very sweet smell of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, raisins and coconut
Taste: Vanilla, butterscotch, honey, raisins and molasses with a short and sweet aftertaste
Overall: This rum is nothing special on its own, but does work well as a mixer. It is very sweet and should probably get a 5/10, but the low price and value for money bumps it up to a 6/10.

Simple rum with vanilla taste. Would work better with chocolare cakes
