Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Lekker, wel wat scherp. Rokerig smaakje met een zoete rozijn nasmaak.
Smooth, something you can drink straight. Enjoyed with friends.
Sweet and with caremel flavour. Reminds me of Diplomatico
Krásně voní, chuť výborná, co si přát víc, vedle Diplomatica Reserva, Ron de Jeremy parádní volba
Jemný, krásně voní po karamelu s trochou kouře. Spousta potěšení za pár peněz.
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.
I do like the wood in this one and I do like the little burn and the taste of caramel and molasses that you have in your mouth just after you have finished it. But it just ends there, can't feel the magic in this one, don't know why, maybe it is too sweet, maybe I had better rums so I can't be objective with this one. Price in Europe might be interesting but for 5€ you can have a lot of better bottles.
Sweet and tasteful, but too much flavor of dried prune or raisins for me.
This may be a feature of panamanian rum, there was same flavor in Rum Nation Panama.
Nose : Sweet, caramel, fruit.
Taste : Just like the nose its very good. Caramel is there from the start and the some sweet fruit and nuts.
Very good rhum and creamy.
Bon petit ron à un rapport qualité prix correct pour un 12 ans
I quite like this, even if I paid a little more than I think it is worth, at around £45.
It's a little spirity, so hot on the tongue and the back of the throat, but that's forgiveable because of how the flavours develop in the mouth.
On the nose, it's all about toffee and honey. A hint of calvados apples but otherwise, not much fruit here.
It has a sweet aroma which tells you that this is a sweet rum, but when you taste, it isn't as sweet as you might expect. Initialy, it has very dark sugar, almost treacle. This segues into a quite bitter oakiness which fades through a sort-of gin-like finish. I feel that if this rum has been sweetened, it was probably done for a good reason.
I mean, it isn't fabulously complex, but it leaves you wanting more.
pur schmeckt er mit nicht, ist hald auch nicht süss. aber für zum mixen super.. für das hald etwas teuer.
Nothing really special about it. A good yet slightly sweetened choice.
A simple every day rum. A bit harsh. There are way better tasting rums for this price.
Tested this long ago and you can definitely taste that it’s a Panamanian Ron. It has it all, but everything is weaker than in the better ones.
Tasted it again during Birka’s rumcruise 22/3-2019 at a Master class and this time I had difficulty to distinguish from Havana Club 7yo.
So my rating will not be changed.
Picture: Brands included at the blindtest.
Vona sladka po melase a hrozienkach, chut plna rumova, primerane sladka, vyvazena sladkost, drevitost aj alkohol. Je to lepsi priemer, stoji za ochutnavku. Pripomina mi trochu El dorado 12y aj vonou aj chutou, je ale menej citit alkohol... A je aj mierne drahsi...
Very well ballanced. Not sweet but also not dry, with his own character. Smooth and complex with more layers and longer aftertaste.
De laatste uit mijn Tasting Collection en wellicht de beste. Waar een deel geen echt sipper was, is deze daar uitermate geschikt voor. Lekkere neus, tikje caramel en een vleugje rokerig. Smaak heel lekker, pure rum. Lekkere lange en rokerige nasmaak. Hier wil ik wel een fles van!
Nose is aromatic tobacco and fruit.
Mouthfeel is light with minimal burn.
Taste is very sweet right up front, little bit of wood that gives way to sugary sweetness. Not a bad rum, necessarily but it doesn't make my top 5 even for the $35 I paid for it.
Very pleasant oak nose with much stronger oak finish. Only slightly sweet. Very smooth body. Overall very enjoyable.
Pro mě pecka.
Relativně rozumná cena, příjemná nasládlost, krásné dřevité tóny v chuti.
Smooth on the front end with hints of chocolate on the back.
No es el tipo de ron que me gusta. Olor de madera, muy poderoso. Color de un añejo potente. El sabor.: presencia de roble muy fuerte sin poder sacar ningun otro sabor. Parece que lo han rellenado a un barril podrido. A mi no me convence.
Aged in Bourbon cask.
Caramel, vanilla, bourbon cask, smoke...
Particular, sophisticated, sweet and rich flavor.
Top Rum 10/10
After my initial introduction to the fabulous 7-years old Abuelo some years ago, the time had come for me to get to know its 12-years old brother, my expectations being really high....but the awakening was rather rude! Although it's older, it's even sweeter, and if in the case of the 7-years old the balance between dryness-sweetness is succeeded in an exemplary manner, here in our case we are talking about an intense sugary palate, a feature that covers nearly everything else. Yes, it is a pleasant rum after all, but I wouldn't prefer my rum to be as sweet as a birthday cake!
