This rum contains a very large amount of added sugar which makes it seem "sweet and smooth", but which masks the rum's actual flavors. What does this rum really taste like? We'll never know.

Tout ce qu'on attend d'un ron hispanique de 12 ans.

This is a pretty standard rum. There isn't a lot differentiating it from your other standard rums. It’s a little higher on the vapor end than I prefer for a sipping rum. Given the choice, I’d go for the Ron Zacapa Centenario.

Good and tasty. There is nothing exceptional, but I like the herbs and some mandarine in the taste.

I am greeted with burned sugar, vanilla and a hint of apricot. I get also dry furits and some herbs.
All flavors are wrapped in some white ok. Not the panama smell I expected, usually panama rums are more bright.

As the first drop hits my tongue, I get burned sugar with mandarine and vanilla. A second sip provides dry fruits, some wood and also chocolate. The spice provides also some cinnemon notes.
The taste is not complex and the flavors are common. Still a good rum but not exceptional for me.
I would rate it with 72 points.

Smell: burned sugar, white oak, vanilla, dry fruit (plum, apricot), some herbs/plants

A nice rum for sipping. Oak notes, a little sweetness and a touch of smoke.

Mooie smaak. Met karakter. Je proeft de barrel en hij heeft een lekkere afdronk.

Od Abuela 12YO som očakával čosi viac. Je to chutný rum,skôr ostrejší s dymovym podtónom,no ničím má neprekvapil. Zreteľne cítiť aj dozrievanie v sudoch po whiskey,ale dal by som mu tak 5,8 bodu.

A (too) sweat vanilla tasting rum with a strong alcohol. Not a sipping rum for me and I assume that there is added sugar/caramel to this rum. An ok rum for a decent price.

Great aroma, sweet carmel, cinnamon and vanilla notes. Great value. Fans of Diplomatico will definitely enjoy. A staple in my home bar.

Excelente ron, buen color y textura, solo o con un cubo de hielo excelente. Buen precio en el mercado.
