One of the first good rums I ever bought. It was an awesome experience and would love to try it again

Not one of my favorites, tastes like refined white sugar. The most boring of the plantation rums i have tried, but works as a sipper or for drinks if you like it light and sweet.

Tasted last November, the 2002 vintage as recently been succeeded by the 2004, which I am eager to taste.
As the brand Ambassador explained at the tasting, Central America has it's own style of rum. They use short column stills, with not too many rectification plates, and most of them have started producing rum in the last century or less, which makes their production a bit less standardized than let's say Barbados, Trinidad or Jamaica. This translates in a bigger variation between each Vintage.
This particular rum is the result of a 42 hours molasses fermentation, aged in upright standing ex-bourbon casks (aging vs "elevage") in high humidity warehouses.
Tropical notes: candied orange, clove, quince, profound. Bold and woody mouth feel with caramelized sugar and rum-raisin ice cream flavours. Gourmet finish on a ripe fruit note.

Plantation Panama Old Reserve 2002 has a minimal hint of sweetness to it and bit of fruitiness and spiciness.

L'attaque au nez est sur l'alcool, puis les épices et le bois suivent en allonge, avec une dimension végétale assez présente.
La bouche est dans le même registre, plutôt costaud.
6 à 7

En douceur, avec des notes de banane et de vanille très prononcé. Très agréable.

Viel Ananas und trockene Früchte mit einem Hauch Banane und Vanille.

Soft and smooth is mentioned a few times in the reviews, could not agree more. My only other Plantation rum I have to reference it against is the 20th Anniversary XO which is bursting with toasted coconut flavor. This one is definitely more honey and bananas, attempting to not finish this bottle too quickly has been a challenge.
