Your basic rum... Has a little more kick to it but nothing else is special. The nose isn't pleasant at first but gets better after a little while in the glass. The taste is fairly bland, very simple wood with some notes of honey.
Love the general profile but the proof is lower than I prefer. If you can find private barrels then that's where it's at with the higher proof!
I have been seeing this rum for sale at around $30 US, but I saw a bottle today going for only $17. Thinking that I had little to lose, I brought it home. It is an 8 year old dry Panamanian rum with no additives. The aroma is almost nothing. However, the 90 proof burn is quite high and obliterates any flavors that could be hiding underneath. Thankfully, the fine print etched onto the back of the bottle was too difficult to read in the store, but this rum clearly does not live up to it's claims. Think of this as a much cheaper competitor to R.L. Seale rums and you can't go wrong. However, this one is just too boring for me. If ice cubes bring out the flavors on a later date, then I will update this review.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Grander 12y Rum bottle and label design looks very nice and unique. Light amber color. There is some unmatured alcohol to the nose and palate with plenty of wood and dryness. Some burn at the end. For whisky lovers, add 2 points. Not my cup of tea being way too dry and woody.
A little reference to the VanHalen song to get started. Pretty good rum. Nice smell good taste, with a fair amount of burn at close to 100 proof. The usual rum flavor with a little bit of Bourbon toward the end. Pretty smooth for the high alcohol content. I’m not sure Panama is known for it’s rum, but this is a good import.
