Not as sweet as some others, but very smooth. I was fortunate enough to have had this in a nice tequila bar. I didn't get a chance to fully delve into the complexities, but it seemed like a good, straight Rum and what I'd describe simply as refined.

God bid i starten, efterfulgt af en masse smagsoplevelser.

For me, this is what I like in a rum. However, I can understand why people would find this too sweet and too oaky. The sweetness is intense on the front palate before the oak kicks in to mellow it down. On the finish, the sweetness caries on well after the oak. But.....just sometimes, I can find it to be all a bit too confected. But whether it is a good drinking day or not, it is supremely smooth, full bodied and easy to drink

EDIT - the Mezan Panama is made by the same people as this, and to me is better. While it doesn't have the smokey flavours, the sweetness isn't quite so in your face.

2nd Edit - I have just been given a litre bottle at 37.5% and it is very different to the 70cl 40% bottle that I have just finished. Unsurprisingly it is smoother than the 40%, and the oak notes are much more pronounced. I had become rather undecided about the 40% as it had a dirty edge to it, but the 37.5% is right up there. Very good.

I'm not one to enjoy too much wood, and this tips to that side for me. I can appreciate the expertise though and will recommend it. For my tastes, I'll stick with the 7 year.

Panama, Amérique du Sud... On pourrait donc s'attendre à un rhum rond et moelleux comme les Diplomatico, Centenario, Millonario & autres productions de type espagnoles. D'autant que la couleur est d'un ambré profond... Et bien non ! Nous sommes ici sur un produit plus sec, au nez puissant et épicé, avec une pointe d'alcool qui n'est pas désagréable. La bouche amène de la cannelle et des épices, un surprenant coté sec. La longueur est moyenne, mais agréable avec des notes végétales et fumées discrètes.

The Abuelo 12 anos is a very smooth rum. Women will like it and I do as well because of its smoothness but also his very sweet side with vanilla notes!

I liked this rum, but I have only seen it when I traveled.
