Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Découvert dans un restaurant puis en masterclass j'ai adoré le côté rond de ce rhum
D'une excellente facture l'alcool n'est pas trop présent en bouche pour laisser place à des arômes de fruits confits et de caramel
À goûter absolument
Good body and nicely balanced between sweet and dry. Good sfter dinner neat or with a rock or two.
Don't expect something superior. This is a good quality daily sipping rum. Very good at this price category. Very sweet and indeed comperable to Botucal Reserva Exclusiva. A lot of vanilla, cane sugar, cocoa and fresh wood notes.
I think this is a pretty good rum, it’s quiet sweet which I don’t mind too much with tonic or something. I get vanilla and coconut with a slight oak after taste.
Realy nice nose full of vanilla and raisin. I like this one a bit more than the 7 year old but pricetechnical I prefer the 7 year old.
Had it during a flight to South America - the flight attendant saw I was sipping the Abuelo Añejo (younger rum) and brought me this. The 12-yr is definitely an improvement when compared to the Añejo as the first smells in nose are that of toffee, caramel and a hint of vanilla, and after it comes the alcohol smell. In mouth it is smoother and you can taste less the alcohol than the Añejo. It is a woody rum so expect a dry aftertaste. I am sure that the older versions are worth exploring. Can’t wait to try the older versions!
Very sweet and nicely full aroma, taste being a tad on the simpler side. Nice sipper none the less.
Smooth, something you can drink straight. Enjoyed with friends.
Sweet and with caremel flavour. Reminds me of Diplomatico
Krásně voní, chuť výborná, co si přát víc, vedle Diplomatica Reserva, Ron de Jeremy parádní volba
Jemný, krásně voní po karamelu s trochou kouře. Spousta potěšení za pár peněz.
To my palate, this tastes a wee bit like Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, but with much more "fire". Also hints of sherry, raisins and vanilla. Beautiful tasting Rum, sweet but not overly so.
I do like the wood in this one and I do like the little burn and the taste of caramel and molasses that you have in your mouth just after you have finished it. But it just ends there, can't feel the magic in this one, don't know why, maybe it is too sweet, maybe I had better rums so I can't be objective with this one. Price in Europe might be interesting but for 5€ you can have a lot of better bottles.
Sweet and tasteful, but too much flavor of dried prune or raisins for me.
This may be a feature of panamanian rum, there was same flavor in Rum Nation Panama.
Nose : Sweet, caramel, fruit.
Taste : Just like the nose its very good. Caramel is there from the start and the some sweet fruit and nuts.
Very good rhum and creamy.
Bon petit ron à un rapport qualité prix correct pour un 12 ans
I quite like this, even if I paid a little more than I think it is worth, at around £45.
It's a little spirity, so hot on the tongue and the back of the throat, but that's forgiveable because of how the flavours develop in the mouth.
On the nose, it's all about toffee and honey. A hint of calvados apples but otherwise, not much fruit here.
It has a sweet aroma which tells you that this is a sweet rum, but when you taste, it isn't as sweet as you might expect. Initialy, it has very dark sugar, almost treacle. This segues into a quite bitter oakiness which fades through a sort-of gin-like finish. I feel that if this rum has been sweetened, it was probably done for a good reason.
I mean, it isn't fabulously complex, but it leaves you wanting more.
pur schmeckt er mit nicht, ist hald auch nicht süss. aber für zum mixen super.. für das hald etwas teuer.
Nothing really special about it. A good yet slightly sweetened choice.
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.
Picture: Brands included at the blindtest.
Vona sladka po melase a hrozienkach, chut plna rumova, primerane sladka, vyvazena sladkost, drevitost aj alkohol. Je to lepsi priemer, stoji za ochutnavku. Pripomina mi trochu El dorado 12y aj vonou aj chutou, je ale menej citit alkohol... A je aj mierne drahsi...
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.
