Beautiful amber color with gray green reflections. On the nose are pastry notes, dried fruits. We must let time do its work and let this rum aerate. There are also vegetable and floral notes. It is very complex. On the palate, we are on the same aromas with a not very long finish. Very nice rum, need time to discovery all aromas. Not easy when you taste during a rum festival ;-)
Enjoyed back-to-back Malecon Seleccion Esplendida 1982 and 1987 while in Tokyo. Very nice and sturdy bottle design but rather dull label design. Both 1982 and 1987 are true 30 year old rums, none of that Solera shenanigans. Deep amber mahogany color. Plenty of nuts and vanilla mixed with mild oakiness to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Super smooth ending. Both are simply spectacular rums, but the 1982 to me seemed too dry.
