Sort by: Popularity | Date | Rating

Last one of the finish collection I have tasted.
In glass, it looks sugary and leave streaks but once you taste it, it is more dry ( not too much ) as expected on the noze specially if you have tasted the Olorosso and/or the Tawny Finish before.
Again, like the 2 other ones from the collection, the Abuelo Napoleon is fruity and the kind of finish is easy to find. The aftertaste is quite short but well .. nothing is perferct , right ?
Good job from Abuelo.


Cognac and oak are very present with some fruits notes like peach. Very sweet in mouth with floral aroma on final. Short aftertaste. A good rum to discovery special finish. Plantation will always be my favorite for this kind of work but a good job from Abuelo.

This is my least favorite of the Abuelo XV's. My favorite is the Tawny, then the Oloroso, then this. But it's good, and to me it beats the Abuelo 12, though none of the Abuelo XV's match the Abuelo Centuria, imho.

Smells and tastes of cognac, spice, leather, oak, and cacao.

Again, a pretty good rum, but if you only try one Abuelo XV, I recommend their Tawny.

Ron Abuelo XV Cognac Cask Bottling Note
An interesting expression from Panamanian Rum range Ron Abuelo - a well-aged expression which has been given a finishing period in casks that previously contained Napoleon Cognac!
Ought to be a fascinating tipple...
Taste of:
caramel, chocolate, apple, vanilla, berries, cognac cask....
Awesome rum, sweet, aromatic, rich flavor,
one of my favorites.


Smell is good.
Taste is ok.
Aftertaste is ok.

Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for £6.61 tasting in comparison with the tawny port and oloroso sherry finish.

This one is much richer, a little less sweet fantastic flavour can taste the cognac coming through with a touch of smoky oak.

En mi opinión este ABUELO XV es el mejor de los 3, es súper equilibrado, de aromas y sabor sumamente agradable (algo parecido al Zacapa xo).


Cela rada je vyborna. Specialne Abuelo, ktere zraje v sudech po konaku je lahudka.

Enjoyed a glass of Ron Abuelo XV Napoleon Cognac 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 deep brown. You get a strong banana flavor to both nose and palate. It is very close to the Plantation 20th Anniversary rum both in nose and palate tests. Hardly any burn due to large sugar contents. My ranking for Special Edition Abuelo Rums is Napoleon (8), Tawny (7), Oloroso (5).

Une belle couleur, un nez et une attaque douce et ronde, un finish franc et fort. Un rhum très complet.

Presentación premium, sabor y olor sumamente impregnado de las características del Cognac, definitivamente una compra inteligente.

Masser af duft, masser af smag og en ganske fin eftersmag.

Fin og blød i smagen. Ret anderledes end XOen men stadig en rigtig dejlig rom

za tie peniaze to je podla mna samozrejme slabota. ak XV tak Tawny, ktore je po portskom. cakal som viac od konaku, trochu sladkosti, ale...ziaden zazrak za tu cenu 7/10. cisto chut 7,5/10

Un rhum vraiment très bon et très abouti. Il a un petit côté salin très intéressant!

It's been finished of in cognac barrels and you can tell. For me this is a golden shot from abuelo to put their rum in this price range because before the distance between 12y and centuria was huge. I was fortunate enough to try this rum on a festival. From the first snif and sip this rum puts a big smile on my face. It's complex, still smooth, nice burn and colour and it just taste f....... good. One of the best of the day, will buy one in the near future!

Truly fantastic rum..this one is one of the best i have tasted so far

Sehr ausgewogen, komplexe Aromen. Vanille, nicht zu süß.

Jeg kan ikke umiddelbart finde Abueloen på sherry fade herinde, men noterer her. Duften var god, ganske sød og egentlig ikke den store tvivl om de specielle fade. Første smag efter en tur i glasset var små parfumeret, men ved anden smagsprøve 10 minutter efter var det en helt anden oplevelse. Utroligt så meget den vandt. En lækker lang og blød eftersmag med en sødme fra sherryfadene. Spændende oplevelse, og absolut på wishlist i hjemmet. Prisen er normalvis 700.

This rum is smooth and rough during taste. Really excellent and good price

Another version of the XV series, I really like this one, same sweetness as the Tawny version, mouth filling loads of taste - who stays a long time, just a bit more dry on the end than the Tawny, and a lot drier than the Xoloroso version.

Me salgo de lo contrario con su balance suave y al terminar esas notas fueron únicas

A Nice Strong smell and flavour - not too spirited.

Uno de los mejores rones del mundo! Añejado a punto. Fuerte con cuerpo, a la vista deja piernas en la copa. Al sabor llegan notas de vainilla, caramelo, cognac.
