This rum has a great smell, always doubting if i should mix it or drink it with ice
It has a smooth and sweet taste. Its a nice sipper with some cubes.
God bid i starten, efterfulgt af en masse smagsoplevelser.
To me, the benchmark for $30-50 rums. Not overly sweet, but very smooth. Hints of oak/wood, tobacco and vanilla. One of my favorites, when I can find it. Seen it under $30 in Panama and Florida. Around $50-60 in California and Texas.
Panama, Amérique du Sud... On pourrait donc s'attendre à un rhum rond et moelleux comme les Diplomatico, Centenario, Millonario & autres productions de type espagnoles. D'autant que la couleur est d'un ambré profond... Et bien non ! Nous sommes ici sur un produit plus sec, au nez puissant et épicé, avec une pointe d'alcool qui n'est pas désagréable. La bouche amène de la cannelle et des épices, un surprenant coté sec. La longueur est moyenne, mais agréable avec des notes végétales et fumées discrètes.
A verry good Rum! Ilike it verry much! Also the price for this good Rum is ok!
Good rum that goes down smoothly straight up. Not very complex but good allround taste
A pretty good sipping rum, just love the smell
The Abuelo 12 anos is a very smooth rum. Women will like it and I do as well because of its smoothness but also his very sweet side with vanilla notes!
This is an excellent rum from Panama that I really enjoy. It is a great value at around $30 too. It starts out smelling like toffee and orange or apples and gets even better from there. The flavor really shines with the toffee, apple abd caramel and this has a nice viscosity so it coats the palate nicely. This is an excellent sipper.
Picked this up in Dom Rep recently at duTY free. Could possibly be referred to as DREs little brother. Not as sweet but certainly has a lot of similarities.
Wood and fruit on the nose, gorgeous colour, a short burn leaving a really warm feel on the tongue.
Top class sipping rum,
For the cost, I enjoy this rum more than any of comparable price!
This "Single estate rum" worked so well for me. The smell is soft but still have a lot to offer, and the taste so good and yet powerful. I need to try out the rest of the Abuelo rum for sure. Thumbs up.
Placut, aromat cu note de fructe si un pic de vanilie. Bine pozitionat in gama de pret.
Smooth on the front end with hints of chocolate on the back.
Putin dulceag, cu arome de vanilie, miros de butoi de bourbon si fructe exotice. Recomand cu incredere.
The nose indicates a high alcohol content. The taste is very smooth.
De los abuelos el que más he probado. Es un chocolate. Muy agradable y familiar. No tiene pierde.
One of my favorite rums thus far. Wonderful oaky finish with a bit of molasses.
Though a bit sweet for my palate, really nice in every way. The only reason I wouldn't take four bottles of this instead of one bottle of Centuria is so I can trade the Centuria for, say, a bottle of Opthimus 18, one of Mount Gay XO, and a Depaz Blue Cane to round out the price bracket.
Value alone, it's a no-brainer at $32ish. It really gets better as it airs out in the bottle or decanting. Dark berries, cherries, apricot, some buttery/salted toffee, coffee. Initial sweetness fading towards the finish with the tiniest hint of leather and tobacco bringing up the rear; really nice medium body texture. If you dislike oak/wood notes to your rum, they're almost completely missing here. There's a delicious cognac note here, too.
If you find yourself unimpressed with the adulterated sweetness of most rums but don't fancy the drier examples like Appleton 12, Brugal 1888, this is a center-line rum you just might come to love. An critical rating of 7 but a cumulative rating of 8 given the great value. A staple.
I liked this rum, but I have only seen it when I traveled.
Great color, aroma, but best on ice. Not a sipping rum per say. I really like the central american rums the best.
Dejlig blød aroma smag af vanilje, portvin rund sød efter smag, rigtig god
