colour is deep brilliant amber, nose is complex, sweet spice and fruit. tatse of nutmeg, cinamon, butterscotch, dried vigs, toasted nuts and dark chocolate.

For its price, I think this is the best sipping rum I have ever tasted

This is one of the two top sipping rums I have tasted in my life. Mildly sweet with a long finish. Beautiful color. Please try it straight; you won't be disappointed.

One for sipping and savouring. The best I've had yet.

Velmi velke prekvapenie menom Abuelo 12y. Moj oblubeny rum Diplomatico RE dostal silneho supera!

Sladky rum, vonavy drevom a vanilkou az ovocim. Chut je jemna, alkohol doznieva velmi prijemne a chute idu na povrch cez sladkost, vanilku az ku drevitosti zo suda...

Ozaj odporucam. Testoval som s jeho bratom Abuelo 7y a je tam veeelky rozdiel. Oplati sa priplatit.

Nazdravie :)

Découvert dans un restaurant puis en masterclass j'ai adoré le côté rond de ce rhum
D'une excellente facture l'alcool n'est pas trop présent en bouche pour laisser place à des arômes de fruits confits et de caramel
À goûter absolument

A wonderful birthday present after wanting to try for a while. On the nose it is distinctive to any other rum use smelt. It has a nice subtle sweetness to it and every sip seems to bring out more flavours which I find very enjoyable. Nice long finish too allowing you to savour those flavours.

Outperforms it's price point.

Po dříve představeném Abuelo Añejo, což byl 5 let starý rum z produkce firmy Varela Hermanos S.A. si představíme o dvě třídy vyzrálejší Abuelo 12y. Mezi nimi se v portfoliu značky nachází ještě Abuelo 7y. Zraje v sudech z bílého dubu a nevyrábí se z melasy, jako Añejo, ale z panenské šťávy cukrové třtiny. Některé zahraniční zdroje uvádějí, že sudy, ve kterých zraje, jsou po whisky a bourbonu.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Panama
Aroma: Tak tohle je originální, vůně je výrazná, s tóny cedrové dýhy, do které se balí doutníky, kůže, ořechy, tabák, rozinky, staré dřevo a dokonce mi evokuje kostel, něco ve stylu starého nábytku. (92 b)
Chuť: Chuť je příjemně nasládlá, velmi lahodná, přitom excelentně jemná, i v ústech jako bych cítil aroma kůže. Dochuť je přímo skvělá, stále se měnící, v závěru zemitá. (94 b)
Shrnutí: Tak tohle je pro mě opravdový skvost a velké překvapení z Panamy. Abuelo není ani nějak přehnaně sladký, ani nepůsobí tak těžkotonážně, jako Zapaca 23y, je to spíš jeho protipól. Je udivující, kolik zajímavých vůní a chutí se skrývá v tak jemném rumu.

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.

Je ne le connaissais pas mais bon choix, je le conseille

Lovely sweet flavour and a smooth finish, lots of subtle flavours that develop the more you drink, an easy sipper

Benchmark for sipping rum. Smooth, sweet, complex, and well balanced. Outstanding value.

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.
93/100

This rum rocks!! I enjoyed this one with a nice cigar aged to
Perfection and lots of caramel flavors and oak notes and vanilla.

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!

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.

Taste is good, a little to sweet for me. Similar to Zacapan but with more oak taste.

Posted over 5 years ago by A.Greenleaf from United States with 51 ratings

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.

It reminds me Diplomatico. Very nice rum, sweet, chocolade, spices, smooth.... long aftertaste.

One of my favorites

Incredibly smooth. Can smell the molasses with a woodsy tone to it. Perfect after dinner with family or friends
