fantastic says it all. The smell is sweet and alluring. Tastes of raisin, molasses, and a little oak. Truly one of the best I have tried recently.

To my palate, this tastes a wee bit like Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, but with much more "fire". Also hints of sherry, raisins and vanilla. Beautiful tasting Rum, sweet but not overly so.

Taste is good, a little to sweet for me. Similar to Zacapan but with more oak taste.

I'm not one to enjoy too much wood, and this tips to that side for me. I can appreciate the expertise though and will recommend it. For my tastes, I'll stick with the 7 year.

A wonderful birthday present after wanting to try for a while. On the nose it is distinctive to any other rum use smelt. It has a nice subtle sweetness to it and every sip seems to bring out more flavours which I find very enjoyable. Nice long finish too allowing you to savour those flavours.

Outperforms it's price point.

I can't give a 10, because nothing is perfect but this one comes close. Sweet but not overpowering or chemical. Well balanced with an amazing afterburn. Pairs well with a good cigar. Complex but still tastes like a rum. I don't like rums who taste like a whiskey or a sherry. Almost no strong ethanol taste. For it's price obe you can buy with your eyes closed. The bottle could be more beautifull. Pitty it doesn't come in a decanter style bottle

first tried abuelo 7 and did not like its thin taste and fany sweetness. 12 is a different story, very fruitfull smell, yet you know you are drinking rum. Seems somehow filimial to Barcelo Imperial. Long sweet aftertaste.
