Une valeur sûre à déguster ou même en sacrilège avec du coca.

A simple every day rum. A bit harsh. There are way better tasting rums for this price.

Tested this long ago and you can definitely taste that it’s a Panamanian Ron. It has it all, but everything is weaker than in the better ones.
Tasted it again during Birka’s rumcruise 22/3-2019 at a Master class and this time I had difficulty to distinguish from Havana Club 7yo.
So my rating will not be changed.

Very well ballanced. Not sweet but also not dry, with his own character. Smooth and complex with more layers and longer aftertaste.

De laatste uit mijn Tasting Collection en wellicht de beste. Waar een deel geen echt sipper was, is deze daar uitermate geschikt voor. Lekkere neus, tikje caramel en een vleugje rokerig. Smaak heel lekker, pure rum. Lekkere lange en rokerige nasmaak. Hier wil ik wel een fles van!

Nose is aromatic tobacco and fruit.

Mouthfeel is light with minimal burn.

Taste is very sweet right up front, little bit of wood that gives way to sugary sweetness. Not a bad rum, necessarily but it doesn't make my top 5 even for the $35 I paid for it.

Very pleasant oak nose with much stronger oak finish. Only slightly sweet. Very smooth body. Overall very enjoyable.

Pro mě pecka.
Relativně rozumná cena, příjemná nasládlost, krásné dřevité tóny v chuti.

Smooth on the front end with hints of chocolate on the back.

No es el tipo de ron que me gusta. Olor de madera, muy poderoso. Color de un añejo potente. El sabor.: presencia de roble muy fuerte sin poder sacar ningun otro sabor. Parece que lo han rellenado a un barril podrido. A mi no me convence.
