Trully amazing rum, great aftertaste, great flavor, great finish and persistance.
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.
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.
Este excelente Ron de color ámbar oscuro presenta olores de vainilla, caramelo, frutas y madera, que al probarlo puedes sentir en la lengua también el bourbon presente en la barrica donde fue envejecido.
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
Ein guter Rum, leider für das was er bietet viel zu teuer.
The color is a beautiful caramel mahogany. You get a hint of the barrel to the nose with a vanilla, syrup and woodsy smell that take you through the woods and a wonderful fire. The taste as it hits your tongue is a vanilla, caramel and subtle fruit with minimal burn from the bourbon barrel. Probably a bit pricey but excellent rum easily in top 5 percent. Great neat or on rocks. Would be excellent with cigar.
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.
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.
Malgré le prix assez cher 250 euros la bouteille je ne suis vraiment pas déçu d'avoir craquer dessus je le conseille vivement !!!
This is a sweet & decadent rum that is well worth the money. The finish is smooth and long lasting.
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.
It is an expensive Rum, but very good for sure, I really enjoyed. Very smooth, perfect taste. One of the sweeter Rums.
Good quality but a little over priced. Nice presentation.
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.
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
We dont get to rate many actual 30yr old rums that aren't solera's. So I was slightly disappointed that I couldn't rate a 9 or 10. Great dark mahogany colour in the glass , aromas of caramel , stone fruit , honey and wood plus a bit of smoke.
When sipped I tasted sherry , bourbon cask , more honey and some spices.. dry rum so not too much sugar if any ? Lovely spicey warm mouth feel. Long aftertaste with minimal burn.
Very well made and I really enjoyed it but not exceptional for me.
Nose starts with plums and cinnamon, taste develops into citrus and coffee at the end.
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!
