Rum Review: Panama 2004 (Bottled 2017)
Category: Gold Rum
Cost: £40.75 buy from Master of Malt
What they say:
Meticulously selected by our Cellar Master, Mezan rums capture the depth and diversity of the Caribbean and offer a taste of its purest, most authentic flavors. Distilleries old and new, some founded centuries ago, others no longer in operation; all are subject to our Cellar Master’s discerning eye. He tirelessly travels throughout the region, seeking out its hidden treasures: untouched rums, artfully crafted from a single year’s distillation by a single distillery. Unsweetened, uncolored and only lightly filtered, these vintage rums represent the finest, truest expression of their producer and country of origin.
Sweet aromas of caramelized bananas, ripe mango & vanilla spice combine with flavors of banana bread, honeycomb and candied fruit.
A delicate finish with notes of dried coconut and cocoa.
What I say:
Sampled during the #MezanRum tweet tasting hosted by Steve @TheWhiskyWire
Rich golden brown (14/20)
Caramel/Toffee sweet, Toffifee – with praline, nut and chocolate too, crème brulee
Caramel sauce, praline, chocolate, oak wood, vanilla, a little dried mango and *ahem* Jamaican ginger cake & spiced caramel latte
Short, spiced caramel latte
A delicious dessert of a rum with plenty of chocolate, sugar, ginger cake and coffee.
Don’t take my word for it:
