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
Don't expect something superior. This is a good quality daily sipping rum. Very good at this price category. Very sweet and indeed comperable to Botucal Reserva Exclusiva. A lot of vanilla, cane sugar, cocoa and fresh wood notes.
I think this is a pretty good rum, it’s quiet sweet which I don’t mind too much with tonic or something. I get vanilla and coconut with a slight oak after taste.
Realy nice nose full of vanilla and raisin. I like this one a bit more than the 7 year old but pricetechnical I prefer the 7 year old.
Had it during a flight to South America - the flight attendant saw I was sipping the Abuelo Añejo (younger rum) and brought me this. The 12-yr is definitely an improvement when compared to the Añejo as the first smells in nose are that of toffee, caramel and a hint of vanilla, and after it comes the alcohol smell. In mouth it is smoother and you can taste less the alcohol than the Añejo. It is a woody rum so expect a dry aftertaste. I am sure that the older versions are worth exploring. Can’t wait to try the older versions!
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.
