That's some good stuff
Malecon Rare Proof series is one of my favorites when it comes to Latin styled rum.
Tasted this one together with the 1996 version just to see if it had changed in any way.
They are more or less very similar, but this one (1999 version) is sweeter and less powerful all the way from nose, to palate and finish.
So I have to degrade it from 9+ which was my rating of the 1996 version to 8+ for the 1999 version.

I had this rum yesterday at German 10. Rumfestival in Berlin. It tastes good and the higher abv helps a lot to improve the taste. Finishes sweet but not the good way. Nothing that would bother unexperienced drinkers but something that conossieurs would not appreciate. When i finished drinking i went back to the stand and asked for some details about you know how this rum is made and where exactly it comes from. Unfortunately the person just has read some marketing "information" from her paper. I dont want to tell the details here but i think it is really bad not beeing able to provide detailed information about the product. Especially since Malecon is marketed against other high quality products. There is no way i can rate it higher than an 8. And im not sure whether 8 is probably to high.
Thank Your Rhum Attitude for a proper rum tasting during the 17th month of global lockdown. Malecon Rare Proof 20y has a very nice and unique bottle and label design. Deep mahogany color. Extremely sweet nutty flavor profile. Way too sweet ending. Would be considerably better if less sweet.
