A refined and elegant rum, inspired by true character. After 12 years of aging in selected barrels, it boasts luxurious and exceptional. Its well-rounded flavours are only achieved by time and artistry. Drink it by itself, paired with dark chocolate or along with mature tobacco cigars. Character behind every sip.
Recommendable to most
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.
Why unexpected? Was for some reason not too sure what to think, it initially had a cheaper alcoholic whiff which burnt off quick. Very shortly afterwards I realized that I need to keep a bottle of this around, like a Ron Barrilito or a Diplomatico Reserve Exlusiva. Has a really nice unique flavor; wood, sweet chocolate and some vanilla. Wouldn't dare mix this, would through a bottle of Zaya instead to save it!
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.
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.
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.
