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.

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.

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.

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!
