PANAMA 18 y.o.

PANAMA 18 y.o.

Rel. 2014

Appearance: Intense and bright amber.

Nose: Soft, deep, warm but not exceedingly buttery. Sun-dried raisins, dates, coffee and a winey touch.

Palate: Very sweet but well balanced by the tannic and balsamic influence of the oak. Intense, aromatic, rich on liquorice, chestnuts, dried plums, and the typical note of molasses, with a touch of vanilla.

Finish: Getting spicier and spicier: black pepper, a hint of cinnamon and beeswax. Red Virginia tobacco. In the end, though, the sugarcane molasses win.

Comment: Even softer and more caressing than previous releases, thanks to the perfect vatting of casks selected by the Cuban masters working in Panama.

Suggested Match: Valrhona Jivara 40%, a rich milk chocolate with vanilla scent, well suited to the intense sweetness of the rum.
