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
This rum contains a very large amount of added sugar which makes it seem "sweet and smooth", but which masks the rum's actual flavors. What does this rum really taste like? We'll never know.
Har ofte læst at 7 års var bedre end 12 års, men det giver jeg ikke ret i. 15 års er dog bedre. Duft af tobak, træ og appelsin. Meget smag af tobak og træ, men også lidt marcipan ved 3-4 forsøg. Ikke dårlig, men heller ikke en til romskabet. Lang eftersmag. (12. December 2018 i MacY)
Smagt igen i 2020: Opdateret fra 6 til 7. Kunne ikke smage tobak og appelsin denne gang. Duft af røde bær og chokolade, kommer også i smagen, som er sød og nem, men desværre også lidt fad. Bedre oplevelse end sidst. (11. December 2019 i MacY)
This is really nice supprise. This was my first rum from Abuelo and and it was a hit. Really nice aroma of oak, vanilla and caramel. In mouth you can feel nice balance of fruit, oak, toffee and vanilla. End is supprisingly long and sweet. Outstanding rum for its price.
You always gotta love your first. When I first dove into drinking nicer rums this was my first taste, and I was hooked. Still love it today. Smooth and easy to sip neat. Always in the cabinet.
I have always loved this rum, but it's expensive in Canada. I bought 3 bottles at the duty free on SJO for 75 USD. I still love taking this 12 year old out and sipping it. It isn't as smooth as some 21 or even other 12 year olds, but it's very easy on the palate.
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,
