Now this is some good stuff
Ok, this is right up my alley. Wonderfully sweet, sherry aroma with hints of oak. The flavor is that of smooth bourbon, molasses, vanilla, and subtle spices. The finish has very little burn and leaves you wanting more. Looking forward to getting a bottle soon.
Many thanks to the Rum Ratings team for shipping this as part of their Rum Ratings Club quarterly shipments (they also shipped a mini bottle of the Abuelo Centuria, among other rums!!!)
Because this is a bourbon aged rum, I didn't expect to like it as much as the Abuelo Tawny, Oloroso, or Napoleon rums. But I found this better than all of them! The Centuria is still king of the Abuelos to me, but this is my #2 Abuelo as of this review. Has a nice sweetness to it that complements the bourbon aging well.
Smells and tastes of molasses, spice, almonds, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, and oak.
A very good rum and a big surprise!
The smell is inviting you to take a sip: vanilla, fruit and a little bit of wood are luring you in. The taste starts of quite spicy and not so complex. Then the burn, whereafter it breaks down in to a nice variety of flavours. It flows nicely into sweetness consisting of vanilla, caramel and a hint of fruit. The aftertaste lingers nice and long, mainly because of the smokiness of it.
It was too sweet for my liking at the first tasting but the second time around a enjoyed it way more. Its halfway between a Centenario 20 and a Foursquare Sagacity in that respect. Enjoy!
Wouw you can taste deep deep wood in this one. Great nose and taste with lots of wood and ash. The sweetness is there, but well balanced. Well done Abuelo.
I do like Panamanian rum! This one is exquisite. Tons of smooth flavor. Oak, coffee, smoke. Scotch Whisky fans will love this. Hint of sweetness. Balanced and beautifully thick. Great finish. More please!
I got this in my rum pack and it was definitely a pleasant surprise. Not much of any burn and great vanilla flavor giving way to brown sugar and oak on the back end. I really enjoyed this sipper.
Nice amber color i the glass
Nose: vanilla, fruity, orange peel, arrack
Taste: fruity and sweet, figs, nice and warm aftertaste with some fiery
