Made from Panamanian sugar cane molasses and aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 7 years, this rum is dark gold in color. The nose is very expressive and affable, a nice showcase of the molasses with sugar cane, vanilla, toasted marshmallow, and caramel. In the core of the nose is a very pleasant pineapple note, supported by the bourbon barrel notes including oak, black pepper, and clove. All these elements come together well in a nicely integrated and inviting nose.
The entry for the Cana Brava Reserva is lighter than the nose would suggest. The opening is sugar cane, with a touch of pineapple. It’s a touch watery in the opening, and a little more restrained than the expressive nose would suggest. Moving towards the midpalate, this rum does open up quite a bit with vanilla, molasses, dark chocolate, oak, and cinnamon. The pineapple note from the opening is also in the mix. Towards the end of the midpalate there’s a bit of a pepper kick with cinnamon, black pepper, and oak. This drives a long, dry, and spicy finish with cinnamon, oak, bittersweet chocolate, char, and a undercurrent of sweet molasses.
As a sipping rum, Cana Brava Reserva is a little too light in the opening, and dry in the finish, but these same qualities make it ideal for mixing.
