Recommendable to most
I wouldn't say this is the sipping rum you must have on your bar, but if you're expanding your collection it's good to have to show the different ways rum can be aged and ultimately taste. I love sherry aged spirits, and this one definitely brings it!
First sherry tones you can find in aroma. Taste is complex with nice hint of Oloroso, not covering the basic Abuelo rum character. Long aftertaste. Perfect fun is compare all 3 editions (Oloroso,Napoleon,Tawny) together :-)
when compared to the Luxus sherry cask, it pales in comparison. However, the nose is brown sugar and light sherry. Taste/finish is dry red wine, medium sweetish sherry. 80+
The notes of sherry is very strong, but in a good way. The taste varies from vanilla to sherry and the ride is exelent. I love this rum
Dark amber rum with a nose of burnt brown sugar and figs along with wet oak, tobacco and overripe cherries. A fairly deep character.
The taste is semi sweet at first and medium bodied with notes of orange, cherries, burnt sugar, oak and tobacco. It fills the entire mouth nicely with a lingering sherry finish. The sherry is perhaps a bit overpowering as others have noted, but it’s still a very nice product with character.
Panamanian rum from Ron Abuelo's Finish Collection,
which has been given a finishing period in Oloroso Sherry casks!
caramel, vanilla, chocolate, a lot of Cherry, sherry cask....
Another Abuelo's astounding rum, sweet, aromatic and rich Aroma.
Thank God I'm not an expert... Just been drinking rums most of my adult life and fortunately my palate is not jaded with inteligencia. Therefore I rate this a ten... wonderful aroma, wonderful aftertaste on the palate, and fabulous to share with a close friend which I did. Sip slowly straight at room temperature no ice.
Purchased a sample from www.masterofmalt.com for £6.61.
Wonderful nose on this rum sweet sherry and oak. Flavours of chocolate and raisin with a touch of cherry and oak. Very nice!
In my opinion this seemed the worst of the 3 ABUELO XV, however it's not a bad rum, only that to my taste this has a lot of finish in Sherry, and takes away the rum itself.
En mi opinión éste me pareció el peor de los 3 ABUELO XV, sin embargo tampoco es un mal ron, solo que a mi gusto este tiene mucha terminación en Jerez, y quita protagonismo al ron en sí.
Enjoyed a glass of Ron Abuelo XV Oloroso Sherry 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 very deep reddish brown. You get very strong sherry flavors to both nose and palate. Its very unpleasant for my palate. This is quite a sweet rum so hardly any burn at the end, but its simply way too sweet. My ranking for Special Edition Abuelo Rums is Napoleon (8), Tawny (7), Oloroso (5).
