Scored this on a whim. Ignoring the fact that the extra tall bottle had a hard time fitting in my bar.. my solution was to leave on the bar top.. THUS... it went rather quickly. Delicious. Smooth. Enjoyed Neat on a cold evening. Will enjoy again soon.
Where I live in Houston, there's a shortage of great rums. With the exception of Zacapa's offerings, this is the best rum you will find. Very smooth and delicious with a cube or two of ice. Nothing comes close for the price (around $42 where I live.)
A very very good rum, almost as good as the Quorhum 30 (I love that one the most). Very harmonic and smooth.
This is a sweet but also elegant rum. Your first try will make you want more due to its smoothness, however, after your second, you will probably feel the strong molasses.
The aroma that came from the bottle upon opening...wow! A touch on the sweet side but awesome: leather, slight wood smell and somewhere between dried plums & dried apricots (but I can't put my finger on it).
The viscosity of the liquid seems a little thicker than the average drink. Making it roll off your tongue in a smoother fashion.
As for the taste, spot on.
Is it a 9.... not for me but would definitely give it an 8.5
Well, I opened my bottle of Zafra and I can say that it is unique and enjoyable. The flavor is complex, and to me, it has an earthy and grassy flavor to it. The flavor remains consistent throughout the drink. Now I have to disclose some news that will hurt some folks feelings. I mix the rum with either Diet Dr. Pepper or Diet Coke, depending on which flavor I am looking for. I like starting one drink with Zafra to get that grassy flavor and then I have my second drink made with Clement 6 to give me that earthy - dirty flavor. I like them both and recommend them to your collection. Zafra is good for every 1 out of 6 or 7 drinks to prevent getting tired of it and appreciating it when you do want something GREAT, yet uniquely different. Cheers,
Tasted. Nice rum. I can see why most of people like it. Rich wide taste, sweet mollase with distinctive nutty (wallnut, hazelnut) taste afterward. Sweet mollase vanilla smell. Very, very nice sipper.
