Out of 40 + rums that I have collected this is by far my favorite. A bit expensive so it only comes out for very good friends.
It is an expensive Rum, but very good for sure, I really enjoyed. Very smooth, perfect taste. One of the sweeter Rums.
De notas dulces en nariz y en boca mucha canela y vainilla de color matizado este ron en una expresión mas compleja pero no lo venden en panamá siendo embotellado para mercados internacionales. Que lástima
I really enjoyed this rum. It clings to the glass as you swirl it. It is sweet without being syrupy, spicy without too much bite. It has a nice smooth flavor.
I have had probably more rum than one should have and this is the best that I’ve had. The Zafra 21 might be the best value rum around but this is truly special. It’s everything that an aged rum should be. The sweetness level is perfect, it has an abundance of flavors and very little burn. I can only find one more bottle online and unfortunately I’m going to buy it
Worth the wait and selectivity, this is so good for a sweeter rum.
First time i tried this amazing rum during a rum & whisky tasting at our local luxury goods store. I got bottle 3677 of 6720 from year 2015. Great odor/smell of vanilla and caramel, wonderful taste with vanilla honey and bourbon flavor and lasting several minutes in your mouth. This rum is a must have in every premium house bar.
This rum is absolutely at the top of all rums, truly fantastic. It is worth every cent you have! I only had a few tastings at a rum festival, but I am still saddened I didn't buy a bottle then. But will do soon!
Possible the softess spirit I have come across. Reminiscent of the 21 year but more balance. The add time in the cask has dual up the oak and down the sweetness and vanilla that are overly strong in the younger version. It is not cheap but I challenge you to find another 30 year old for any less. It is a great option for a special occasion.
Mit Abstand bester rum den ich je getrunken habe. Hat auch seinen Preis aber der ist er absolut wert.
Simply my favorit rum. Very well-balanced with great flavours of wood, honey and vanilla. After that you smell discreet tastes of sherry and boubon. Even the price is high I had to buy a bottle after trying it.
Bottle 3717 out of 6720!
Can it be any better then this?
Nose, mouth, afterburn - Georgius!
The best “Ron” I have ever tasted!
Picture: My top five shelf!
Amazing rum - wonderful flavor with a long after taste, sweet. my bottle is 5600 out of 6720 bottled in 2015 so it makes it a rare specimen! Tasting as good as it does, this wont last very long!
Jemná chuť, bezvadná barva, opravdu překrásné pití děkuji Hedonist klubu
Yes it is expensive and limited but if you can afford a bottle and find one I don't think you will regret getting one. I really like the standard Zafra bottling but this one is even better. This is a slow sipper for me.
This is a sweet & decadent rum that is well worth the money. The finish is smooth and long lasting.
If all their claims are true, this rum is spectacular. I'd honestly give it a 9.5 It hits a lot of the right spots. Like all of them.
Wow, beautiful true 30 year rum. Fantastic from nose to the long and smooth finish. At 180$ i would consider it a good deal. Get you some of that...
Why "surprising"? Because I rate the Zafra 21 an 8 - this is a nice step up.
This is smoother than the 21, and more sophisticated. Smells and tastes of caramel, oak, and honey, with a hint of bourbon, and a nice light spice. I prefer this to the $500 El Dorado 25, which I knocked down to a 9 after tasting this (it was previously at the bottom of my 10's which are getting over-crowded ).
A delicious rum; I recommend this even if you're not a fan of the Zafra 21.
When I ordered it I was wondering if it was worth the price. I think it is now that I have it.
This excellent dark amber rum presents scents of vanilla, caramel, fruit and wood, which when you taste it, you can also feel on the tongue the bourbon present in the barrel where it was aged.

I generally add a drop or two of water to this rum for sipping. As discussed below, this rum has very little burn. Sipping this rum with zero water added would be no issue. It's really just a matter of preference here.
Medium brown, rich in color. Is certainly not as dark as it gets.
This rum has almost zero nose burn. You can stick your nose right up into the rum, and you will get almost no burn. The benefit of this is that you can fully appreciate the complexity of smell of this rum. The initial notes you get are the creaminess of caramel, vanilla, and sugar cake. You also get notes of wood - the barrel seems to come out in the nose experience. A bit of a smell of red wine. This is perhaps the best smelling rum I’ve had. Very pleasant.
Again, very little burn with this rum. You will get a slight tingle of the tongue, but it is noticeably less than with other sipping rums. The initial taste is a sweet caramel and honey that seems to coat your tongue. This coating gave the feeling that the rum was thick and cream like. The caramel is sharp at first, then smooths out into a well balanced tasting experience. The caramel is not overpowering, however; you can certainly taste the complexities of this rum. Some of the background flavors include oak, maple candy, cherry, cake, and dried fruits. The tastes of oak and barrel really linger on this rum in a more intense way than some other rums. The bourbon casks really come out here. Impressively, the length of the linger on the tongue is long, and the flavor remains intense for some time. After sipping, you taste and feel the flavors shift and evolve over time as the coating remains on your tongue. The only thing keeping this rum from being a 10/10 is, in my opinion, the short linger on the tongue. The flavors do not intensely remain on the tongue for a long period. In my opinion, the tastes die fairly quickly. Other top rums tend to coat the mouth for a longer period.
Overall, this is a great rum. The rum is top notch in terms of intensity, complexity, and overall experience. In my opinion, this rum is a unique experience. The low burn sets this rum apart, and gives a much different nose and mouth feel compared to other similarly priced rums that I've tried.
