Nose: old wood, rather rough, some moss
Palate: wooden and some chili. Somehow sweet and dry at the same time...

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.

Pozycja obowiązkowa dla wielbicieli brandy. Dwa pozostałe z kolekcji są zdecydowanie słodsze.

Altid en fornøjelse at kikke ind til Rombo. Man kommer altid derfra med god rom

This is probably my least favourite of the three Abuelo XV expressions. That's not to say it's bad, far from it. I'd happily take it any time. But given the choice, I think I'd rather have one of the others. Maybe because it's the least sweet one. I got cognac on the nose, and the flavour is still great. Recommended.

The box looks solid and gloomy. “Nobleness”, a barrel, heather, vanilla, a confectionery aroma spreads from a glass and alcohol breaks through. The taste is multi-layered: first sweet, then burning and bitterness, again sweetness, oilyness, moderate astringency and again burning makes you swallow faster. Also apricot and sourness are felt. This rum is appropriate to dilute slightly with water and the palette of impressions will become even greater. Long aftertaste. Citrus fruits on the table will be very handy, kumquat is perfect. Inebriation brings a minor mood. But in the morning you will not feel the previous load.

Ron Abuelo is a brand that many people have divided opinions towards. I have never tried one of them before, but I wanted to give one of the cask finishes a go.

Nose: Ripe fruit, raisins and cocoa with a bit of oak peaking through
Taste: Oak, ripe fruit, caramel, vanilla, peppercorn and a long and somewhat suprising dry finish with cognac notes
Overall: I am always somewhat reluctant to taste these "cask finishes" that have become more and more popular, because they seldom do anything to impact the taste. With that said you really get a cognac feel in this rum, which helps the complexity quite a lot. I was affraid that this rum would be to sweet, but that was certainly not the case. A great, but a bit to expensive, rum.

Taste 8+/10. This is sweater than 12, older and better taste. Flavour of tropical fruits little oak and a very mild cognac aftertaste, smooth and really nice but it needs more matureness to be great.

Næse af røde bær og eg. Smag af røg, frugt og træ. Røgen er meget gennemtrængende ved de første par sip og dominerer det hele. Hældte til at syvtal, men efterhånden blev den bedre og bedre, så man endte faktisk med at ville have mere. Kan måske nå op på 9. Indtil videre er de to 15 års jeg har smagt ret gode (den anden er Oloroso). Skal helt sikkert prøve den sidste på tawny port. (24. December 2019 i 1423)
