Another really solid mixer at an agreeable price. Essence of rum, unlike most at this price point. Hardly any sugar, brilliant with a smoke.

The smell and taste is classic Malteco/Malecon - spicy tobacco, wood, bit of vanilla, citrus fruits, too rough to be sipped, but it works very well in mixed drinks as the intense aroma and spicy taste develops. The taste profile is rather dry, I cannot feel any sugar added. If you like Havana Club Especial (or other HC offerings) in mixed drinks, you will like also this one. Perfect strong bodied mixer, good price, no sugar - for me it is 8.

Aroma: spices, molasses, barrel, Spanish style, sherry.
Taste: sincere and real - fiery, bitter, sweet, all in moderation and long enough.
Effect: a light snack enough to accompany. In general, it is not tough and contributes to the continuation. The disadvantage is that it fools the head with the first glass.

For the record, I'd give a rating of 7.5 for this rum but I don't have a choice. I found this rum being very similar to Havana Club 7 in both tasting notes, smell and price tag. A very nice classic style rum, with no added sugar but plenty of tropical fruits on the nose and in the taste. A definite friend of cigar lovers.

Enjoyed a bottle of Rum Malecon 8y in Germany while vacationing with my friends. Marginally worse than 3 times more expensive 15y. There is definitely burn at the end, but then again so does the 15y Malecon.

Smooth, nothing special rum. Can be sipped neat. Somehow I think I find the taste better than the 15 year old Malecon. I'll compare the 2 next to each other at another time.

Gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis für einen jährigen. Pur okay, klasse für Cuba Libre.

A bit harsh. Not as smooth as Flor de cana 7y, but a good tasting rum none the less. Like it better with coke, but it's also suitable for sipping. I paid €17,- for 70cl.
