Tasty, but not quite great
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.
I really liked this one. Malteco has a great taste, very rich body, strong aromas. For sure, there are better rums out there, but they all are older. Malteco 10 ist only ten years old and therefore has an outstanding value, it is a real bargain! I also liked the lean smooth an heavy bottle. I am very interested in tasting the more matured Malteco rums.

The 15 year old is slighty better, more mature. But this one isn't bad at all either.
The nose has hardly any alcohol and a nice sweet smell of vanilla. When a sip is taken there's some alcohol burn at the end, but not in a bad way. It has a good balance. Just the right amount of sweetness for my taste. I'll probably get this one more often.
