A refined and elegant rum, inspired by true character. After 12 years of aging in selected barrels, it boasts luxurious and exceptional. Its well-rounded flavours are only achieved by time and artistry. Drink it by itself, paired with dark chocolate or along with mature tobacco cigars. Character behind every sip.
Recommendable to most
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.
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
Taste: burned sugar, mandarine, vanilla, dry fruits, some wood, chocolate, spice
Finish: middle long, almost short but the spicy taste lingers longer
Value (35): 3/5
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.
