Truly a fantastic choice
I'm surprised to be the first to review this, as it seems easy to find at Total Wines & More in the S.F. Bay Area (7 Total Wines & More stores in the Bay Area have it in stock as of this review).
What really stood out to me about this rum is how smooth and easy drinking it is compared to other rums at a similar price point and abv. And I prefer the taste to other Panama giants like Panamonte Reserva XXV, and Zafra Master Reserve 30-Year.
Smells and tastes of caramel, brown sugar, spice, oak, raisins, toffee, and vanilla. This is a really good rum - I highly recommend it!
A rum above all. SO yummy and complex. A perfect balance. Did a blind taste test with this and Zacapa XO. All of us picked Selvarey. And the box and bottle are the best looking bottle on my back bar. Super impressive.
WOW! For the price, the rum is worth every penny! The gift box is a plus but the juice is undeniably one of the best aged rums in the market. Comparable to Don Ponchos 30 yr. My fav from SelvaRey, although I love all of them.
I’ve enjoyed this rum so far, but not enough to justify the cost for another bottle. There are other rums I would rather spend my time hunting and paying for. That being said, this is a very pleasant sipper. Very smooth and mild. I found the nose to be slightly sweet with banana, toffee, vanilla, and creme brûlée (I had my wife verify in case I was losing my mind on that last one). The initial taste is very mild with chocolate, maybe a hint of nutmeg, and bread. The finish was oak, tobacco, dark chocolate and coffee.
