Malteco Malteco Seleccion 1981 40yr 40%

RX9883 Very good Column Still Rum Under 250€

The Malteco Seleccion 1981 is a premium rum from Panama, produced with molasses and aged for 40 years, resulting in a richly complex profile. Users highlight its splendid woody and vanilla aroma, complemented by notes of dried fruit and sweet prunes. The flavor profile impresses with a balanced blend of roasted wood, dark chocolate, and dried fruit, underscored by subtle vanilla. While some find it sweeter and lighter than expected at 40% ABV, the rum's depth and character shine through with tobacco and citrus nuances in the empty glass. Perfect for those seeking a sophisticated, well-aged rum with a unique, fruit-forward and spiced character.

“I would have loved if this rum had a higher ABV because it's very light in the profile. This also makes it sweeter that it should have been in my mind. Fruity with nice roasted wood. Draws really nice curtains in the glass. The empty glass is really nice and I can pick up some tobacco and citrus.”
