Being intrigued by the new Myer's Single Barrel Rum aged in Sazerac Rye Casks, I checked others that were aged in Rye Casks. These were Papa's Pilar 2021 Special Edition and Bayou Single Barrel. All three used minimal Rye Cask aging to greatly improve otherwise passable dark mixer rums.
I finally broke down today and bought this bottle for $47 US. Unlike those other three dark rums, this one is light colored. I would venture to say that this rum spent too long in rye whiskey barrels. It is also 100 proof. The heat from the alcohol burns the nostrils and well as my entire mouth. Others have suggested serving it on the rocks. That worked quite well, but still not good enough to get above my low ranking 7. My next closest Grander is a high ranking 6 for their 8 Year Single Barrel.
Got a sample of this rum from RR Tasting Club. It’s unmistakable an rum produced in Panama, which is my favorite country when it comes to Latin styled rum.
The ABV of 50% balances the sweetness well and so does also the finish in Rye Whiskey Barrels.
I think it’s possible to detect vanilla, toffee, oak and of course hints of Rye Whiskey.
I have no problem to recommend it.

This isn't a bad rum, but I'm not a huge fan of the drier rums. I prefer this to their Trophy Release.
Smells and tastes of molasses, whiskey, bourbon, oak, and pepper.
Not a bad rum at all, but a bit too dry for my personal liking.
Great intro rum for the whiskey drinker. Panama rum finish in I believe Woodford barrels. It is dry, but finishing in a rye will give it just enough heat going down.
Caramel and sour cherry nose. Interesting blend of dry with a spicy long finish, really lasts a while. Smokey with hints of leather and bark. I’m not a whiskey lover, but I like this a lot more than normal whiskey type dry rums. Probably for more complex palates, certainly not a typical sweet rum. I might not sip that often, but enjoy something this different. Strong 7 for me, add 1-2 for whiskey drinkers.
Nose is reminiscent of a rye heavy bourbon without many traditional rum notes. Not as hot as the 50% ABV would suggest. Tastes a bit spicy, but overall pretty smooth. One for whiskey fans.
Unique offering, just not for me. The Trophy Release is a little more pleasant.
