Malecon
Seleccion Esplendida 1987 Rum

Category: Rum (Aged more than 3 Years)

Date Tasted:
Country: Panama
Alcohol: 40%
Bright golden amber color. Tropical, fruity aromas and flavors of guava paste, passion fruit icing, allspice, and pineapple cake with a round, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, huge, medium-long finish conveying accents of cigar wrapper, tropical white flowers, leather chair, and sandalwood finish. A balanced rum that is somehow both rich and light.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
