Light, buttery, banana, oak, this is not an overwhelming rum. Nothing "special ". But, you'll keep reaching for this one if you have it in rotation. Solid neat, rocks, and mixer. A real sleeper. One I'd like to keep around especially for the price. You need to try it.

I dont like overly sweet rums so if you like that then this is an 8, but solid complex taste for sipping great peppery bite on finish. Exactly what you’d expect from Panama. Good job i hate that I dont like it more wish it was less sweet, maybe age it bourbon barrels?

Update: Test showed 0g sugar **(my hydrometer is not super accurate though)**
Bumped rating up to 8 because of this, plus I found a store selling it for $16 USD!

Everyone seems to disagree about whether this juice is legit (by that I mean true age statement, no flavoring, etc.)

I've read everything from "best I've ever tasted" to "gasoline and paint", but to me this is a solid mid-range sipper with just enough proof be memorable. Now I really need to find the older expressions.

Notes of butterscotch, cinnamon, blackberries, and a very spicy oak finish.

I think I have discovered that Panamanian rums are just my jam. This was a rum that, based on descriptions, I didn’t think I would really like...I was wrong again. This was a delightful combination of strength and character at a great price point. The nose is a perfect aromatic balance of vanilla, raisins, and nougat. The first taste has a wonderful smoothness that coats your tongue (without being viscous) and the palate opens up with a pleasant blend of caramel, bourbon, and spice. Despite the strength and other reviews I detected no burn. The aftertaste has bourbon and light caramel notes. The experience is not quite as impressive as Zafra but this is nonetheless definitely a rum I will be adding to my cabinet given the character and price point. What a wonderful combination. I am not a cigar smoker, but if I was I would pair a good cigar with this rum.

Nose: 7
Palate: 7
Aftertaste: 7
Smoothness: 7
Versatility: 9
Price: 7

Total: 7.3

The nose and burn on the tongue tell you up front that this is a higher proof, not for sipping. The real find here is the way it blends adding distinct tastes with different mixers. Coke, lemon-lime, ginger ale, etc., every one brings out different flavors in the rum.

It made for a great night to discover the many facets of this rum and will look forward to finding the 23.

I have been wanting to try this rum for quite some time, so I picked up a bottle today. The aroma is alcohol and oak with the same two flavors going down the pipe. Holy moly! Does it ever burn! Then I read the fine print on the label which states that it is 94.6 proof. This is definitely rum for whiskey lovers and it is quite dry. For me, it is best enjoyed on the rocks and this is when the other flavors finally come out. It is not very complex at all. It is just pure and simple rum. However, as a mixer it ruined a perfectly good Pepsi.

Update December 1, 2018: While watching DVD's of fairly recent live Rolling Stones concerts in anticipation of their upcoming USA tour in the spring of 2019, I sipped this one on the rocks as I first recommended. After drinking Flor de Cana 7, this one pales in comparison. It is just too dull and boring and too much overproof. I have no choice except to lower my rating from a 7 to a 5 and will never buy this one again.

In my overall rankings, I now have a much cheaper bar staple being rated about 7 points higher. Between $7 per bottle of the bar staple versus $29 per bottle of this Panama Pacific, I will gladly choose the bar staple for both taste and price. This is really quite sad! Don't be fooled by rums from this distiller! By the way, the bar staple is not from Bacardi or Captain Morgan.

I tried the 23 at a cigar lounge and enjoyed it quite a bit. When I purchased a bottle of the 9 and tried it at home, I found that it has a similar deep oaky flavor and I did not have the heart to rate it lower. 7.5 for both on my scale. If I tried them side by side, I might end up changing my rating(s). Stay tuned!

Nice amber color, nose is light with that sweet Carmel smell. It is sweet with a little burn but not bad. Nutty. Decent
