Review: Rum Nation Panama 18 Years (2010 Release)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 5, 2013

SAM_0623 Panama 18Panamanian rum from the Valera Hermanos Distillery has been bottled by Rum Nation since 1999. The 18-year-old rum from Panama is acquired in bulk from Valera Hermanos and shipped overseas to Italy for labeling and bottling. After the successful introduction of this bottling 13 years ago, the company has continued to purchase bulk rum from Panama with an annual production of roughly 6,000 bottles per year.

I was given a bottle of the 2010 release (bottled at 40 % abv.) for the purpose of this review by Crush Imports who distribute the Rum Nation line-up in my home Province of Alberta.

Review: Rum Nation Panama 18 Years (2010 Release)

” …The initial scent rising from the glass is full of butterscotch, cinnamon and cloves. A zesty wood spice arises as well giving the aroma a touch of brashness. As the glass breathes, I notice some brown sugar, vanilla, baking spices and roasted pecans all wandering through the breezes giving me a impressions of fresh-baked cinnamon rolls.

Please enjoy this review of this very nice Panamanian Rum!

    • Hi Russ

      Good to hear from you again! And sorry I will not be going to the Rum festival this year as just like last year I have been invited to participate in other events which happen at roughly the same time. It’s hard to say no when all the expenses are covered.

      I have not tried the Colombian Rums of which you speak, hopefully they will make their way up to my neck of the woods soon. If you do spot any of the Rum Nation brand down in Miami, do pick some up as they are well worthit.

      Cheers Chip
