A burning aftertaste when drunk straight. But when mixed the floral and citrus notes come out. Not a sweet rum so if you don't like your mixed drinks too sweet this could be a good choice. But as a mixer it is rather expensive
Tried the Rum Nation Martinique 12y and I was not convinced a bit. It's better than Rum Nation Panama 21y, but only barely. The Martinique 12y has a nice semi deep color, but the taste is super dry and lacks the aged rum flavors. This is very close to Rhum Agricole style rums, and I'm not a big fan of those.
