Tasty, but not quite great
Not a great nose but I love the mouth. Nose Israel syrupy with aromas of woods. Mouth is smooth with a very good blend of spicies. Very aromatic, with a good dry/sweet balance. Coffee is the stingiest note but has also some vanilla and something else, some herb which I like but can't tell what it is.
This rum is one I called the better standard. Nice well-ballanced aroma and taste. Liquiry aroma followed by rich flavour starting with sweety taste that quickly vanished. Nice performance/price ratio.
Oak, caramel and vanilla on the nose with a light column still rum. Tastes of a young rum but with a balanced flavour. Easily sipped but makes a delicious rum and coke. The finish has a long and lightly spiced flavour. I am now looking for older Abuelo's.
A little bit pungent in the nose, some orange, cardamom, cinnamon, brown sugar, nuts and apricot. Very nice.
Taste not as good as the nose, however, not bad. Somehow a bit watery, spicy oak with ripe fruits and some leather. Ends dry with a finish full with herbs (wood?). Good, but no masterpiece, taste not long and balanced enough.
Sugar: 15 GPL. A lighter version of the 12 year old Abuelo. Not quite as sweet as the 12 and nowhere as complex and tasty as the Centuria, which is to be expected with the price. I would say that this version has a thinner version of the 12 and has more of a whiskey taste. Caramel, oak, and spice are prevalent with that whiskey taste at the end. I suggest you let it breath for about 10 minutes if you are going to sip it straight up. Overall it's a decent sipping rum and an okay mixing rum, but you can use a less expensive rum for mixing and get the same result. Overall I find this rum to be good value, but a little thin on the wow factor.
Really good on the whole. Rum gets a lot better than this, but this is a solid rum to keep in the cupboard. Good enough to sip, but cheap enough to not feel bad about mixing and a full enough flavour that it’ll stand up to ginger beer.
N- Drifts of leafy and dry straw notes before the caramelized sweet fruit with sour plum and clove. Juicy citrus-y lemon underlay at the tail. (19/25)
P- Oxidized coffee with dried fruits, Christmas pudding, dried fig and clove from the oak. (19/25)
F- Short, caramel, rounded with no burn, creamy sweet patisserie. (18/25)
Balanced:- Is sweet but with identifiable fruits and presents of oak for the characters (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 75pt

Recently tried a glass of this neat. Was what I expected from a 7 year rum. Not overly smooth or flavorful but not bland and harsh either. All around not a bad rum for the price but easily forgettable. Others in the same price range are better.
