Getting Into Rum

What about Gunpowder version?

The extra proof helps a bit but it still seems to be more sweet than it should be. It hasn't been around that long, maybe three years? Maybe I have had more recent bottles because I usually have it as a float on a drink at my local tiki bar and they probably go through a lot of it. In fact I know they do!

A few thoughts…  

Bass - Demeraras - Big, bold, grassy, oily, dark molasses, peppermint finish, vegetal taste of the cane left behind.            Caroni - Extinct - Cinnamon, coffee, oily. On the bitter side.

I am curious if it is really 21 years old or if some “solera” shenanigans are involved. I suspect it is the later…

Cool, thanks for the heads-up Bruce!

Where would you all place a 21yr old Zafra rum?

Thanks, I have it, tried it and liked it.  It was my re-introduction to rum way after my high school days of Ron Rico 151. :) It was recommended by the owner of a store near me so I tried it. i know it's from Panama, just didn't know where it fit in the rum hierarchy. Does not seem to be one of the overly sweet ones. It is finished in bourbon casks, that's why he said I should try it.

Gotcha. A lot of rum is finished in bourbon casks. Curious if there is any dosing in it.
