The latest info I've noted is a rating/review from tastings.com:

Fariñez Ron Añejo Súper Premium Rum

of course the other rum in the portfolio had been previously rated as:

Macuro Aged Rum

Thanks for the link Rum Runner.

The hyperbolic tribute to Ron Macuro on the importer website by Spanish Master Taster, Mr. Oriol Serra Nadal, is awkwardly translated and does little to help the reputation of this rum. It might be better left out of the listing.

I agree Michael. It's curious that the importer chose to aim those tasting notes at an English speaking market.

Dear Sirs,

Thank you so much for the interest in Ron Macuro and Fariсez Pachano Nє 23.

Just wanted to update you on the latest. I could not go to UK Rumfest and most likely going out business. I have not been able to find investors nor financing. I guess I was totally wrong about my aged rum ideas.

I really appreciate your support along the way !!!

Best regards,
Alberto.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation Alberto, hopefully you won't go out of business. It would be a shame as both of your rums seem really great according to the comments made in this thread.

Dear Alberto,

We're very sorry to hear that your rums may not reach the market. Perhaps a better financial climate in the future might provide a more favorable reception for your interesting ideas on aged rum. Your candor in answering all our inquiries has been refreshing and we hope that you will continue to post here.

Alberto,
Hope you have more lucky with next marketing ideas behind rum. Premium segment is a hard one to win I think. BTW, I really enjoy preimum segment like your Macuro and other kind of aged rums like Cacique Antiguo, ST Bicentenario, etc (premium and rare rums). Anyway for me the great sucess model in Venezuela has been impossed by ST Gran Reserva that in my opinion is tailored to reach the biggest segement of LIM we have in the market that look for good value.
Anyway good luck for you and let me tell you I am proud of venezuelan people like you that believes on Rum as one of the spirits with more tradition in the country.
Regards, Fabio.
