Now this is some good stuff
This is a dry bourbon rum. Smells and tastes of pepper, spice, bourbon, oak, smoke, and caramel.
Tastes a bit hot to me for only 42.3%abv. Good if you like bourbon rums, but I'm generally not a fan.
I think it's actually 23 years old. It's not grossly sweet. It's dangerously smooth. The flavor is a mixture between the cane and oak it's aged in. The best part is the price. It's an absolute steal at $56!
For comparison, trying it head to head against El Dorado 21, it was superior and half the price.
Enjoyed a few glasses of Panama Pacific 23y while in Tucson AZ. $56 a bottle is a steal for a true non Solera 23-Year rum. Bottle and label design look artisanal and unique. Yellowish golden color. Strong oak mixed with mild vanilla and some smokiness to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Very dry and extremely short burn at the end. This is a real 10 for Whisky fan boys.
$57 out the door at a world famous wine and spirits dealer in southern California. It may seem expensive but when you taste it then do the research or visa versa you will quickly realize its a deal. Fans of smokey Bourbon oak barrel aged rum will not want to pass this up. A true sipper thats prominent on every level from the nose all the way to it's long lingering finish. It's a winner.
Bottled at 42.3
This rum opens with aromas of vanilla, tannins, and sugar toasted in Irish butter that meld with coconut, banana, and cherry-almond pastry. The palate presents a delicate caramel butter, before a bright warmth leading to rich wood, a little more cherry-almond, then crushed cacao nibs. Delicious dessert notes fade into wood in the finish.
A bourbon drinkers rum. Nice oakyness while maintaining its rum foundation. Great price point for a 23 year true aged rum. Go try it before they jack the price up because of the true aged, non solera aging.
This is a great rum and nice surprise after drinking El Dorado 21 earlier today. A bit of alcohol on the nose but a smooth lightly sweet taste on the tongue. You immediately can tell it’s a fully aged smooth rum not a Solera sugar added rum. Nice flavors caramel but not maple syrup great lingering pleasant ending.
