Zafra 21 Year Old Master Reserve Rum70cl / 40%
Named after the Spanish term for the sugar cane harvest, Zafra Master Reserve is a premium Panamanian rum produced using a small columm still and matured for at least 21 years in casks that formerly held bourbon. Blended by a former maestro ronero for Havana Club, Zafra is a pleasingly rich but interestingly dry rum with a perfectly silky mouthfeel and superb balance. Marvellous stuff.

Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Rich, dark notes of caramelised sugar and crème brûlée along with sweet cinnamon pastry, toffee and cherries. Very moreish.
Palate: Plump, boozy raisins and sultanas with a dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg and Demerara sugar, then sticky dates drenched in toffee. A touch of sweetness, but just enough. Soft, silky mouthfeel.
Finish: The spices and toasty flavours last a long time. Delicious.

I purchased a bottle of Zafra 21 last weekend. Let me just say this is one of the best sipping rums that I have tried in years. It tastes like a combination vanilla, raisins, and butterscotch without being to sweet with medium heat. This rum is great alone or put a couple of shots in some eggnog during the holidays. I will purchase this libation again!!!!
Very very nice rum but I just cannot make my mind up about it. There seems to be a bit too much vanilla coming through at times. But all in all a very nice sipper and one to add to your collection.
