Complesso, fine e persistente.
Non eccessivamente morbido vista l'età.
Si beve con molto piacere ma non lo comprerei.

For this range of brand and aged the 25 yrs is by far the best tasting one.
I recommend this to everyone.

Tasted together with Malecon 15, this 25yo brother is smoother, more complex, yet i feel some afterburn with both, smoked Davidoff Dominican Primeros while drinking, it didnt bring up much sweetness, I heard no sugar added in them which might be a goodd thing for whole bottle evening talk with friend compared to overly sweet rums... will give it a try later

Bold, complex and yet smooth as silk. This has bite but is so balanced. Chocolate, coffee, currant, vanilla and oak notes. Nothing dominates. 25 years has melded these flavors into one great rum. The end result is greater than the sum of its ingredients. That is art in distilling and aging. SUPERB!

Der Ron Malecon Reserva Imperial ist ein Melasse Blend aus Panama. Die Rums durften mindestens 25 Jahre in Eichenholz Fässern lagern. Der Rum wird in Höhlen gelagert und nach kubanischer Art hergestellt. Der Bernstein farbender Rum kommt in einer unaufgeregten Flasche. Der eingeprägte Maelcon Schriftzug gefällt mir gut. Dem Rum wird kein Zucker hinzugefügt und mit 40% Alkohol abgefüllt.

Der Malecon ist sehr direkt in der Nase ohne zu aufdringlich zu sein. Nussig holzige Noten mit Karamel sind im Glas. Am Gaumen ist er sofort würzig und aromatisch. Tatsächlich bleibt er nussig und und die lange Lagerung macht sich bemerkbar. Eichenholz Noten, Schokolade und tropische Früchte machen den Rum vollmundig, komplex und interessant. Man schmeckt die 25 Jahre. Die Schärfe des Rums ist bemerkbar aber insgesamt gut eingebunden. Der Abgang ist erst cremig süß und wird dann durch holzige leicht rauchige Noten eingefangen.

Der Malecon ist ein super Rum mit vollem Körper der viel zu bieten hat. Er hat viel natürliche Süße und gleichzeitig nussig holzige Armonen. Für 60-70Euro bekommt man einen absoluten Premium Rum. Der Preis muss hier in die Bewertung einfließen. 25 Jahre Lagerung für den Preis (kein Solera) ist nicht häufig zu finden. Mir fehlen die Erfahrungswerte mit Rums jenseits der 100 Euro, welche ich nachholen werde, aber bei den Rums unter der magischen 100 Euro Grenze ist der Malecon 25 Jahre einer der Top Produkte. Genau wie der 20 Jahre Rare Proof. Lecker.

The Ron Malecon Reserva Imperial is a molasses blend from Panama. The rums were allowed to be stored in oak barrels for at least 25 years. The rum is stored in caves and produced in the Cuban style. The amber-coloured rum comes in an unexcited bottle. I like the embossed Maelcon lettering. No sugar is added to the rum and bottled with 40% alcohol.

The Malecon is very directly in the nose without being too intrusive. Nutty woody notes with caramel are in the glass. On the palate, it is immediately spicy and aromatic. In fact, it remains nutty and the long storage is noticeable. Oak notes, chocolate and tropical fruits make the rum full-bodied, complex and interesting. You taste the 25 years. The sharpness of the rum is noticeable but overall well integrated. The finish is creamy sweet at first and is then captured by woody slightly smoky notes.

The Malecon is a super rum with full body that has a lot to offer. It has a lot of natural sweetness and at the same time nutty woody armones. For 60-70Euro you get an absolute premium rum. The price must be included in the valuation. 25 years of storage for the price (no solera) is not often found. I habe no experience with rums beyond the 100 Euros that I will make up for later, but for the rums under the magic 100 Euro limit, the Malecon 25 years is one of the top products. Just like the 20 years of Rare Proof. Delicious!

Not so good as expected from a 25 years old rum. No coherence between the flavours.

Typical banana/mandarine smell like in all Malecons.
I think there is not a big difference to Malecon 21.

Smell: vanilla, banana, some mandarine, caramel, oak, light bitterness
Taste start/middle: vanilla, banana, burned suggar, wood, wet barrel
Finish: spice, some caramel
Aftertaste: caramel

Sweetness: 2.5/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Fruit: 3/5
Mildness: 4/5

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Panama
Aroma: Těžší dřevo, kůže, těžce květinové aroma. (86 b)
Chuť: Velmi vyzrálý, dřevo ale začíná dominovat. Lékořice, kůže, opálené dřevo, v dochuti až dřevěné uhlí. Oproti 21 yo přibylo dřeva a taninů, což už je spíš ke škodě, dřevitost mi už přijde rušivá. I přesto má něco do sebe, vyzrálost je fajn. (86 b)
Body: 86/100
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem na další společné ochutnávce s kamarádem. Tentokrát tvořila jádro degustace šestice single cask rumů od Rum & Cane, tuto sestavu pak doplnily rumy Malecon 21 yo a 25 yo. Tento skončil na 3. místě z osmi (Hunter 4.-5., josé 1.-3.).

Manque un peu de watts ! Mais agréable, peut-être trop court en arrière bouche

Rum Malecon 25y has a pretty standard bottle and label design. Amber color for a 25y old rum indicating very little added ingredients. Nutty and sweet to the nose and palate. Very short burn at the end. Surprisingly good rum, but falls short from amazing. Solid 8 for sure.
