Enjoyed a glass of Ron Abuelo XV Tawny Port Cask edition while vacationing in Amsterdam. I'm surprised Ron Abuelo team did not choose a slightly different bottle design from their regular rums. At least the label design is a bit updated from the usual. Color is super deep brown. You get very strong port flavors to both nose and palate. Not unpleasant but unique for sure. This is quite sweet rum so hardly any burn at the end. My ranking for Special Edition Abuelo Rums is Napoleon (8), Tawny (7), Oloroso (5).
I prefer this to the Abuelo XV Oloroso and XV Napoleon. To me, the port has a much nicer smell and taste than the sherry or cognac does.
Semi-sweet, which smells and tastes of port, brown sugar, spice, leather, berries (from the port), and cacao. Definitely good. But for port aged rums I prefer the Foursquare 9-Year Port Cask Finish even more as it has a little better flavor. :-)
Medium Dry, with full sweet red grapes taste. Very woody. Long finish. Superb color, great high notes, one can really feel the Tawny Porto wine in it.
u nombre dice mucho añejado por 14 años en barrica de roble blanco americano y un año en barril de oporto este rum se hace presente con notas dulce en boca lo va a dejar como el favorito de las niñas ya veran un sabor para enamorarse por solo 65.00 excelente calidad
I call it "Abuelo XV Tawnt Port Cask" and omit the word "Finish" because I only cracked the bottle today. Que Rico, Smooth smooth to the nose and mouth. It has a medium body. Carmel, chocolate, roasted fruits (raisins, appricots...) and bold spices. The port notes are clear but not over powering.Perfect sweetness. Has a very nice finish with some astringency.The color of this rum is a deep red/brown, its color looks just like its taste. QUE RICO....FINISHED.
Eyes: dark amber, Nose: Carmelish but with hints of dried apricots. Mouth: quite dry and sourish with a lot of raisins notes, not too sweet, yet complex with a long finish.
Special 15-year editions finished in sherry oloroso barrels, napoleon cognac and port tawny took us on a wonderful journey around the world. Unlike many whiskey editions, here the finish had a strong impact on the character of the drink and you could have fun catching nuances.
Probably my least favorite of the trinity (Cognac, Tawny, Oloroso) of these 15 year old collection, it is similar to Cognac but more sour and less sweet, but do not worry, it is still extremely similar.
Round body, bit sirupy consistancy. Taste is remarkable dry but still sweety on the end. You can realy notice the port finish. One of the best rums you can find in this pricerange.
