Truly a fantastic choice
This is a delicious sipper. Very complex but not "funky". The right amount of oak and smooth as silk. You pay for perfection, but it was worth it.
Nice color and smell is very rich. Sugary sweet caramel and vanilla. Flavor has a lot of complexity, I'm not experienced enough to hit it all but definitely a caramel sweet molasses with vanilla and spice. If it wasn't 90 a bottle and rare limited at that, I'd drink it all the time.
Alas, I'm very slowly working my way through this one. I believe in enjoying good things. Sure, I could shelf this for a long time and be happy on cheaper stuff, and in between I sure do, but I definitely am enjoying this limited treat. Certainly should be enjoyed with a good friend that can appreciate a good complex treat like this one.
This is one of the finest rums I have sipped. Wonderful nose with spiced and fruits all blended in and little to no alcohol hit. On the tongue you get the fruit first with almost a bourbon taste in the middle with a great spice finish. Limited or no burn this is a great rum that will never see a mixer at my bar.
Thanks to my wife, a great Christmas present I am just now opening and will keep for special occasions.
Phenomenal rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a super rare Zafra 30y. Beautiful bottle and label design. Dark golden color. Cognac aging to the nose, mild Whisky flavors to your palate. No burn at all. Very well done indeed.
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.
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.
Deep mahogany color. Old oak over dark fruit followed by dark caramel and vanilla. Echoes of sherry and bourbon. Long balanced finish. Bottle number 1739. I wish I had 100 more. The master 21 is also good especially at the price point.
