Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a well made, smooth rum with a great initial impression. The aftertaste of coffee and maybe a hint of chocolate leaves me flat however.
It’s very drinkable and I’d pick this over many others. It has a dark, rich taste and I’d give a higher rating if the notes were more fruity or vanilla.
Vol en zoet voor in de mond, vervolgens smaken van gebrande koffie, bitterkoekjes en overrijpe mango. Smaak blijft lang hangen en verandert van toon.
Zeer fijne rijke rum
Bardzo dobry przedstawiciel stylu hiszpańskiego. Sięgam po niego kiedy mam ochotę na coś dobrego. Najlepszy z lodem i "psikiem" limonki. Jest słodki, ale nie za słodki. Dobrze ukryty alkohol. Bardzo dobry dla początkujących.
This bottle reminds me of drinking a very strong sherry. Its overtly sweet and just tastes so fake and wine infused. Overall this shit sucks. I cannot and will not suggest anyone purchase this. By far one of the worst rums from panama I have ever had.
First stroke is vanilla!!! I'm not a fan of vanilla flavour but this mixture between rum, caramel and dominant vanilla is perfect. Alcohol is very well covered.
I have yet to meet an Abuelo I didn't like, and this is no exception. While the 7-year goes fantastic with Coke (for me), this one I prefer neat. it is just that little smoother and more refined. Where the 7 has a slight edge to it, this one is quite polished. It doesn't have the complexity and depth of the Centuria, but at the price, one can't really expect that. As a day-to-day sipper, this one fits the bill nicely for me. Recommended.
...I had high hopes for this one, yet it did not give me the kick expected.
"Decent" is a good word to describe it.
For a straight sipper, I would rather recommend the El Dorado 12 year which has the same price range.
I compared this one to the diplomatico reserva, this one is a little less sweet and i found the diplomatico a little smoother. Still a great sipping rum.
Very pleasant in every touch. A bit shy on the nose, but attractive. Banana, cherries plus some exotic fruits, still not too sweet and dry enough. Close to infinity ) aftertaste.
Decr one point due to little alcohol burn.
If see them Abuelo 7 and 12 buy both instantly )
Next stop Abuelo 30!
This is a pretty standard rum. There isn't a lot differentiating it from your other standard rums. It’s a little higher on the vapor end than I prefer for a sipping rum. Given the choice, I’d go for the Ron Zacapa Centenario.
Good but not exceptional rum. The taste is better that the smell.
Smell: Burned sugar, dry fruit (plum), a lot of oak, some gum
Taste: Burned sugar, dry fruits, some wood, spice
Finish: long, warm and spicy, sherry in the aftertaste
Od Abuela 12YO som očakával čosi viac. Je to chutný rum,skôr ostrejší s dymovym podtónom,no ničím má neprekvapil. Zreteľne cítiť aj dozrievanie v sudoch po whiskey,ale dal by som mu tak 5,8 bodu.
A (too) sweat vanilla tasting rum with a strong alcohol. Not a sipping rum for me and I assume that there is added sugar/caramel to this rum. An ok rum for a decent price.
