Smooth and neat rum with rastes of vanilla and honey.

Something that is needed at home

From my point of view, the aging is well present in the scent and taste of this rum, the nose is oak, tropical fruits and vanilla, the taste profile is typical Panama mix of oak, tobacco and leather, there is also toffee, it is smooth and it is also (unfortunately) quite sweet with 30g/l added sugar - I might say a bit too much for me to really appreciate this rum. If you like sweet rums, this is your guy.

Had this one in Mała Sztuka on Gdańsk, Poland. I like deep colour is this solera rum. Sweet fruity and spicy rich aroma. Sweet and sour taste with only little alcohol and much tropical fruits and a sweet and sour taste I can't classify. Taste lasts for long but overall experience it's not extraordinary.

A very smooth drink. Altough i liked this rum very much at first, it started to bore me after a while for not being to particular enough.

I definitely like Panamanian rum. This is very good. Smoke, coffee and mocha notes. Sweet molasses in there but not too much. Definitely not sugary sweet. Subtle complexity and very smooth. Nice balance with bite you taste but don’t feel. Great stuff. Better neat than on ice but either way thus is a formidable sipper.

This was very smooth. It finishes with a mild bite in the throat. The aroma is pleasant. I will be adding it to my collection.

Cedar, leather, raisins, peppery tobacco...great aroma. Taste is sort of cedar/black licorice/charred molasses, a bit too sweet and just didn't seem balanced to me. Much smoother that the 7 year Abuelo, so there's that.

Woody with burned caramel. Dry but with a fine balance of sweetness.
A fine rum

Okay rum. Bit hard in the beginning but the after taste with a touch of nuts is nice. After taste isn’t very long. Has enough sweet in it.

It is truly one of my favorites. I love its gentle taste - it is very universal for me, only reason for not being 10/10 - its bit too sweet. Slight bit.
