Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Great color, aroma, but best on ice. Not a sipping rum per say. I really like the central american rums the best.
The nose indicates a high alcohol content. The taste is very smooth.
This is a keeper! A really nice Spanish style rum that delivers a good mix of sweetness and fruity and spicy flavours. Maybe not as good as Zacapa, but I would put it on equal footing with say Reserva Diplomatico Exclusiva, which has a similar taste profile.
Este ron tiene la virtud de poderse tomar solo y con refresco. Es la primera vez que lo tomo y me gustó sin duda lo podría volver a comprar
This was my first premium rum I tried and it set the bar pretty high. Poured over an ice cube, the flavors of vanilla and caramel pop. I'm eager to try other premium rums to compare.
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.
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.
Très bon rhum, doux, différent du 7 ans que j'ai moins aimé. Un gout de chêne, caramel et noisette brûlée. Je le recommande mais un peu cher.
I liked this rum, but I have only seen it when I traveled.
Nejsou tam zbytecne orisky a da se to pit porad dokola a chutna, ale je tezsi
This rum has a great smell, always doubting if i should mix it or drink it with ice
Enjoying this alongside Some chocolate mousse. Very well🍫
Very good rum great taste and smoothness.
I like it to be a little more rough at the end, but a very nice run
Kurzer Abgang, nicht scharf, süßlich. Schmeckt aber sehr gut. Schafft es nicht in die Hausbar
One of my favorite rums thus far. Wonderful oaky finish with a bit of molasses.
Tasted 12/25/2018 in Key West at The Rum Bar. Neat. Very delicious! Very oaky, and dry, in a good way. Not sweet like some rums. El Dorado 21 is much sweeter. This is damn good, a little hotter, not quite as smooth, but at half the price. 90+
Une valeur sûre à déguster ou même en sacrilège avec du coca.
Dejlig blød aroma smag af vanilje, portvin rund sød efter smag, rigtig god
I thought the Abuelo Centuria was a little pricey, but this surprised me at only $36.99 (Beltramo's 2015 price). Tastes more like sugar cane than molasses; also includes brown sugar, tobacco, toffee, allspice, cinnamon, oak, bourbon, and vanilla. A surprisingly good rum; especially for the price!
But it's a really good rum!
Ron Abuelo Gran Reserva is made from molasses - but with little added sugar cane juice . And it is perhaps this that has helped to lift the Gran Reserva to a higher level !
The aroma have lots of fruity sweetness, yet with good balance with clear hints of caramel and cherry - and a little coconut ! The flavor is moderately intense with great sweetness! This will return the candy and the cherries from the aroma , along with exotic fruits !
very good stuff. The nose isn't that great to be honest and i has this 'alcohol' smell, if you know what i mean. but then I sipped it and it almost blew my mind. after the decent nose i really wasn't expecting such a sweet and complex taste with a smooth and longholding ending.
De los abuelos el que más he probado. Es un chocolate. Muy agradable y familiar. No tiene pierde.
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.
Für den Preis auf jeden Fall sehr sehr gut, für mich einer der besten in dieser Preisklasse. Der Rum ist recht Mild, schmeckt nach etwas Holz und Tabak, Karamell und Vanille. Vor allem im Nachhall leicht zitronig.
