Tasty, but not quite great
Rum from Panama, three years old. Aroma of kerosene, dried cherries, dried plums. The taste has a lot of snuff, like Grande Champagne cognac, dry, zero sweets, skin, bitter tea, cherry juice, green walnuts. The finish is also very dry, tart, very leathery, tobacco, besides pears in syrup, raspberries.
Sipping this in Panama with little ice around it’s a lovely change to the usual on ice rums I’ve tried. Instantly you get a sweet taste followed by a smooth woody flavour. The flavour lingers too. Love it
A lot of smells - overdone with flavors?
Quality alcohol with an excess of sugar and acids.
It's burning for women, it's sugary for men, it's optimal for students?
I had a Brugal extra viejo with soda, and after that I tried this one in the same combination. While the Brugal is not outstanding, though quite nice in the mix, The Carta Vieja did not deliver. a raw, unfinished taste, the alcohol coming through while the sweetness did nothing to finesse it. Quite cheap though, and I will buy it again, and have raisins and prunes soak in it, add a little honey and cinnamon for an after dinner "Bajativo".
