This bottle isn't on our current list of Home Bar Essentials... but it could be. Add it to your wish list and let us know you want it!
Zafra that will HARVEST your soul and you’ll love every bit of the process. The harvest was soo bountiful it won this delicious Rum the BEST OF 2015 Flaviar Award in its respective category.
 
Zafra, Spanish for, you’ve guessed it - harvest, is the brainchild of quite the legendary Master Distiller Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez Perez. Through the course of 50 years he travelled the world to assist in training of many  Master Blenders & to taught the ways of many spirits - Vodka in Poland, Whisky in Scotland and Wine in France. After 50 years in the business he considers himself to be in his prime. Zafra 21 is in his humble opinion, the pinnacle of his career.
 
Are your high expectations shaped by the price, presentation and marketing spin & buzz? In this case, they should be. This Rum-my nectar matures for at least 21 years in ex-Bourbon barrels. Once blended & let loose it comes at you with both guns blazing… but it won’t shoot you down, as it is quite the gentleman’s drink -rich, nuanced, sophisticated and full of character. Zafra-licious, especially since it won’t scrape your piggy bank.

Beth
Beth,
This is wonderful. I am generally more a whiskey person than rum but this is tasty - less sweet and more caramel and vanilla than most rum.
Stephen
Stephen,
Delicious! Got it in one of the sampler packs and need to get a bottle. Very smooth neat, great sipper.
Marcus
Marcus,
Very smooth, strong Carmel tastes, almost too sweet. Had a very pleasant aftertaste. Would definitely purchase a bottle.

Rusty,
Very tasty rum with full flavor! I can taste the molasses, but it isn't overwhelming by any means.

Jonathan,
What a pleasant surprise Zafra 21yo has proven to be. Complex nose and smooth as you like. Up there with the Zacapa's of the world. Looking forward to further recommendations at this level. Thanks Flaviar and Zafra

Jonathan,
Well, this bottle was a steal at $45. Terrific nose of caramel raisins, this is the rum of rum raisin ice cream. But the trick here is that this rum avoids the cloying vanilla that overpower so many lesser rums. There’s a very mild heat that doesn't distract from the chewy, pecan nut flavor that reminds me of a good rye whiskey. Eminently sippable, this rum immediately made me regret not buying more than one bottle. Next time Flaviar has it for sale, I'm ordering a bunch.

Chris,
I am a whiskey, bourbon and rye drinker and tasted this "blind" loving it and not realizing that it was rum...I don't know if it's a great rum (as I have no experience with great rums) but I do know that it ranks right up there with some of my favorite whiskey's, bourbons, and ryes....

Fool you like a bourbon

Brian,
This came in my sampler, and I sat back, after sipping it straight, smiled, and said to myself, "Oh, my, yes." I've had a lot of overpriced 18-30 year rums, and some that are younger but have big flavor and complexity, like Pyrat. Zafra 21 ranks up there not only with the great rums, much smoother than 21 year old Appleton, but also with great bourbons and whiskies, a rarity in the volume world of rum. If you love rums by the sip and not by the liter, then this is one you should have in your collection.

Sharp on the pallet but has a clean finish. Not a favorite though. Tastes a bit young.

It's fantastic. On par with Zacapa Centenario, but rich and dark.
