Review: Berrys’ Own Panama Rum 10 Years Old

Berry Bros., a UK wine and spirits merchant, is branching out into rum production, bringing in a variety of rums from all over the Caribbean and Latin America. We received one of the seven bottlings the company is importing, a 10 year old rum from Panama.

On first blush, it’s very hot — all heady alcoholic vapors — but give it a few minutes to settle down, and this Panama gem shows its charms. Rich, caramelized sugars play with light citrus notes, coconut, and a cocoa finish. After that heat burns off, Berrys’ Panama proves to be quite the smooth and, it must be said, quite delicious sipping rum.

Track it down.

92 proof.

  1. Is it on the woody side? Abuelo and Zafra are both from Panama, and they both have a lot of barrel flavor, making them more whiskey-like (to my taste buds) than many other rums. Mount Gay Extra, from Barbados is also a bit whiskey like, and a safe bet for whiskey drinkers who would like to sip rum.
