Mario
Mario,
Not my flavor profile; too much bourbon, which dominates my palate as I do not drink regularly.
 
Paul
Paul,
Never got this rum. I was not good alone and not good with a mixer. It wanted to take over, but the flavor was not to my liking.
 
Jason
Jason,
Very good sipping Rum. One of my go to drinks.
 
Craig
Craig,
21 years in bourbon casks didn't heavy-up this rum, happily. Made of pure cane, it's light and surprisingly subtle. Straight-up white sugar base, with [no surprise] woody notes, and some vanilla and citrus. A great sipping rum.

Dry and caramelly

Pairs well with any cigar.

Athanasios,
Easy to sip and simple, definitely can taste the hint of bourbon from the cask. Above average but nothing crazy
 
Danny
Danny,
It’s a great beginner rum. Very good but basic. Not complex but smooth and not much burn.
 
Nick

Very smooth a little sweet but very nice will buy again.

Kenneth,
One of my all time favorites. So smooth.
 
Howard
Howard,
Ya know what, I'm not gonna try to describe what it tastes like to me. Liquor/wine tastings are like cigar tasting, which are really amusing to me. I will say it is a very nice sipping rum with an extremely generous price point. Almost twice as good as Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva? Hard call. No burn, not too sweet, decent price.
 
Eric
Eric,
Great stuff, smooth and nice vanilla notes up front, with brown sugar and nice sweetness following. Neat, right out of the bottle, will thoroughly enjoy this bottle with friends!
 
Robert
Robert,
I enjoy straight up in a chilled heavy glass. A nice kick that smooths evenly and leaves with a pleasant smile. Let it linger and the smile becomes contagious.
 
Alex
Alex,
I was told it tasted like toffee...it did! Was pleasantly surprised by the full-mouthed flavor with a hint of spice. Wasn't overpowering. Perfect by itself or mixed into drink. Definitely made me regret ever trying cheap rums. Had it at Doc Ford's in Sanibel.
 
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.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
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.
 
Jack
Jack,
Great Rum
 
Rusty
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

Aaron,
Amazing Incredibly smooth and flavorful. There's nothing to dislike about this rum.
 
Jerome
Jerome,
Amazing rum, love it.
 
Jonathan
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
Chris,
This is amazing sip it chilled or mix if you must, but either way it's an amazing Rum.
 
Derek
Derek,
Insanely smooth and flavorful, stands out in any cocktail. This is my new favorite rum.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
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....
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Fool you like a bourbon
 
Brian
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.
