Panama Red....

Panama Red is a new higher proof rum that is from Panama. It was blended by Francisco "Don Pancho" Fernandez, lately known for Ron de Jeremy and Zafra rum, but possessing a long and illustrious career in rum making.

Panama Red is loaded with rich, simple and great flavors that lead to a spicy, warming finish.
 
The aromas begin with caramelized  honey, over ripe tree fruits stewed with vanilla, nutmeg, smoky oak with slight alcohol to demonstrate a robust and intriguing invitation. The flavors begin at creamy caramel that dissipates to reveal sapid spice, earth and intricate oak tones.
The finish is smooth, warming restatement of that hangs around for a while.

Panama Red is bottled at 54% and still easy to enjoy straight or on the rocks, but it really shines in an adult beverage.
