A very sweet candidate, but a tasty one. Typical Panamanian roasted/smoky nose and flavor. Also really affordable at around 25€.

This is another of the good low cost rums out there and as time has progressed my score has gone up for this rum. In my mind very well balanced especially if you consider the price tag on it. This one I would also consider a rum for both beginners as well as those more picky in rums.

I think it’s a quite mediocre rum relaying on sugar. It has definitely tastes similar to other Panama rums, but it’s weaker than the ones I like.

Für mich leider viel zu süß. Aber ein spannendes Destillat. Würde mir wünschen den mal ohne dosage zu probieren

Leicht holzig mit etwas Rauch. Angenehme Schärfe. Durch aus eine Flasche wert

An interesting finish that I can't really pin down, well worth a second attempt.

Misleading age statement ☝️ not minimum age

Sweet at the beginning but then a just a little bit bitter at the end. Taste of raisins and prunes predominantly with hints of vanilla and caramrl/nougat. In the nose you can smell raisins in rum / prunes and wood as well. It is very simillar to Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva however, with a nuances of different tones in nose and taste. Finish is medium to long in time of first tasting.
