Barbados rum, produced by the Hanschell Inniss distillery since 1884, which was built by the Danish trader Valdemar Hanschell. Distilled from molasses, the distillery uses spring water filtered through limestone rocks. In the nose: grapefruit, cinnamon, dried fruit, iris. It's very botanical, other than the heavy rum from Barbados. Sweet, mild, fruity notes - peaches, and in the finish - spicy - cinnamon, nutmeg.

Enjoyed this sample from my 1423 Rum Advent calendar. Would definitely buy a bottle were it available in my area.

Very nice bottle, but the content is bit underperforming the primal charm. The taste is a bit rougher, but it could be fine sipper if you're not very demanding. But using it in short drinks could be a better way to enjoy it. The dilution will help the taste to rise over that rougher side and mellow down that alcohol pinch in its taste, but it will also provide a more complex taste over the rums that are primarily used for drinks and mixers.

Beautiful amber colour. The nose meet a very distinct and powerful odor. Not sweet odor at all. Taste is quite powerful and strong. Short after taste. Nothing special.

A nice average taste and easy sipping. Not overwhelming and not a stand out.

Hits you with a flavour similar to the distinctive Cuban flavour but with a sweeter and certainly smoother finish. This rum makes me want to try the more senior rums by this producer as this 12-yr was a great taste for the price. Reminds me of butterscotch.

This is what I expect from Panama rums. Vanilla, oak, tobacco, present in nose and taste, none of these scents and flavors is stealing the show, they play nicely together, maybe the oak is a bit more pronounced than the others in the taste. I can sip this one, especially when the bottle is half empty it gets nicely mellow, it makes nice cuba libre too. Pretty versatile and balanced rum.

I found this to be very drinkable. Good color. Good nose. Nice vanilla, oak, hints of fruit and spice. It has a nice bite. Moderate sweetness with no artificial taste. Could be balanced a little better, but it is quite smooth. Nice finish. Definitely a sipper for me. Another good Panamanian rum. The astounding thing is how good this is for the price. Better than rums 3 times the price. A keeper!

Nice bottle and overpack, but taste was disappointing, rough. Feel some unidentified fruit and vanilla.

It's a good natural rum, maybe too simple for experienced rum drinkers, but it's tasty and affordable.
