Tasty, but not quite great
Got this one in a 50ml (plastic) bottle and to be honest, that is more than enough of this rum to know this is not my style. Very sweet, almost sickly sweet, nose dominated by vanilla. A little floral as well and, as with many rums from Panama, there is the sweet scent of rotting wood (in a good way actually).
On the palate it is not as sweet as the scent seems to promise but it is very sweet, even more so than the 15gpl would let you expect. Still vanilla mostly, a rather present alcohol and the floral and rotten wood notes are here as well. Not uninteresting but too sweetened for me to enjoy and not enough complexity to balance that out. Super short finish and the light burn in the end makes me suspicious about some really young rum in this bottle.
Nice, tasty rum with beautiful aromatic nose super reminiscent of Diplomatico with a whif of alcohol.
Tastewise its nice and aromatic with woody undertone and is a bit alcoholic, not syrupy at all.
As i said in title in its price range it has no competition, absolutely worth trying.
Panamský rum s peknou tmavou fľašou s pravým korkom, vôňa trochu surová, dubová, pripomína whisky. Chuť to len potvrdila, dominuje koža, dub a propolis. Rum je dosť ostrý, štipľavý, až trochu tŕpne jazyk. Zaujímavé, že pri prvom poháriku mi znel veľmi sucho, s každým ďalším akoby postupne sladol. Toto som pri iných druhoch zatiaľ nezaznamenal. Až postupom času objavujem pôvodne zastreté tóny. K lepšiemu zážitku som si najskôr dopomáhal kúskom čokolády, neskôr už nebolo treba. Pôvodný rating 5 som už musel dvakrát prehodnotiť, časom si ma získava. Som veľmi zvedavý na 12Y súrodenca!
The 7 Años opens with a slight sweetness on the nose, followed by light aromas that conjure white flowers and dry grass. Aromatic hints of coconut and hazelnut announce a palate that starts with some heat and evolves into a blend of caramel and vanilla. The medium-long finish introduces some cedar and spice before tapering off into burnished leather.
It's not such impressive as Diplomatico Mantuano or Havana Club 7. Just quite good ron.
Just purchased yesterday bottle of 37,5° and first impressions is that it's a really good sipper winning for the price. Maybe I would prefer bit stronger one with 40° but it is what it is OK. Good one, recommended!
