Panama Rum offers strong alcohol notes with a rough, sweet profile. Flavors of caramel and chocolate emerge, but fruit is lacking. The alcohol isn't well-integrated, making it sharp. Expectations were higher given its age and ABV.

“In der Nase kribbelt erstmal der Alkohol... dann kommt Karamell und etwas Schokolade. Etwas Cassis und Dürrpflaume .... Am Gaumen ist der Alkohol sehr brennend und nicht wirklich gut eingebunden. Schokolade und Karamell auch hier ... Frucht ist im Mund kaum etwas zu spüren... es dominieren schärfe , Holz und generell Bitternoten.”
