Another try out with a Mezan rum. At these prices it would simply have been rude not to give Mezan a fair crack of the whip. With Mezan trying to do things the “right way” (in many peoples eyes – including their own) I simply had to persevere with their range.
This Panama 1999 is another one of my more unusual purchases. The original idea was to finally try one of Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez’s rums. I’d focused on the reasonably priced 7 year old celebrity cash in Ron De Jeremy. Then I saw this Mezan distilled in 1999 and bottled between 2012 and 2014 (I have only seen that around on the net so it may well be wrong I cannot find a definitive age).
