Distiller: Don Jose
Bottler: La Maison Velier
Brand: Transcontinental Rum Line
ABV: 43% ABV
Age: 7 Years
Nose: Sweet but very closed off. Not a lot happening here. Sweet toffee and a hint of banana are all that really present themselves.
Taste: Medium mouth feel, a faint prick of heat. Sweet vanilla, toffee, caramel and a hint of fruit. It’s sweet, but naturally so. Papaya and banana.
Finish: Short but fairly complex. That oak presence is here a bit more, with some pineapple, pepper and a nice custard component.
Overall: Overall, this isn’t blowing anyone away but it’s very nice, and entirely competent, especially in representing the style I’ve perceived from other Panamanian rums.
