Ron Abuelo 7 Anos Reserva Superior is produced in Panama and is one of three rums produced in the Ron Abuelo line. As the name suggests, it has been aged for 7 years in oak bourbon barrels and is blended before being bottled.
As first, i need to say that rum is really good quality for that price, atm. for me it is best choice.
Nose is elegant. smooth. non alkohol. Truly Panama style, burned banana and toffee. Taste is good, same palate but with some fruit hits (orange hits). At the finish there is a tabaco taste.
This is really good choice. Compare with HC 7 anos the Abuelo is much much better. In that price u can't buy better. I give it 8/10 because if price/quality
damn, i forgot to tell about great sugar cane flavour. It is impressive essence of rum. Abuelo 7 is for sure 7 yo rum. You can fell that cask finish. That is what i like in rum. Sugar cane aged. Oak flovour Really good stuff.
Strong alcohol nose, not that sweet, mild flavors, feels very similar to cpt morgan spiced but only more expensive. Might bee slightly smoother. Slightly.
Ron Abuelo from the Varela Hermanos estate is a single estate rum, which means that they control the whole process, from growing the cane to fermentation, distillation, aging and bottling. As such it is subject to a very unique production process. Cane fields are not burned before harvest. Instead the foliage is collected and used to fire the still. The fermenting wash is made up of fresh cane juice during harvest season and a blend of stored sugar cane syrup and molasses during the rest of the year. After a continuous distillation in a four-column still, the 7 Años expression is then aged on American oak barrels previously used for bourbon for between 4 to 11 years in a Solera system. Like with many Spanish style industrial rums, the age statement is closer to an average and not the age of the youngest rum in the blend. Before bottling the amber liquid is proofed down to 40% and a small amount of sugar is added to the rum, as is often the case with Spanish style rums. The result is nothing short of an excellent tipple, especially at this low price point. A sweet, but rich and complex spirit meant for sipping, perhaps with a Panama cigar.
Nose: Floral, Tobacco, Vanilla, Caramel, Creme Brûlée, Oak
Taste: Sweet, Raisin, Caramelized nuts, Cinnamon, Coconut.
Finish: Smooth and warm, sweet lingering spices and a toasty bitterness.
Overall: Excellent sipper although more than 1 or 2 drams could be too sweet for my taste. Great value rum!
I recently picked up a bottle this. At the price I paid it’s definitely worth the money. It’s more than adequate neat and goes very nicely with Coke. Not too sweet. At the price I Paid, I have no qualms with mixing it. Obviously it’s no XV (let alone Centuria, which is fantastic!) but it doesn’t pretend to be. Definitely worth the money. Recommended. Can’t wait to see what the 12-year is like.
Tento rum je v porovnaní s 12YO výrazne slabší a je hranicou od Abuela čo sa dá ešte piť. Rozhodne neoslni a radšej doporučujem doplatiť a kúpiť si staršieho brata. Fľašu by som si nekupil
This is full of tricks. Light amber colour and whisky aroma leads you in one direction, but then the sweet banana and caramal taste is a surprise not expected. The sweetness lingers for a while, but leaves you with a dry slightly oaky aftertaste. A delight for the senses and the wallet.
Very intriguing rum if you can get it in the price range £25-30, although it might me worth paying an extra £5 and get the 12-years old. Regardless, very enjoyable!
This was one of the first Rums I liked drinking on the rocks. I started appreciating it more and more and it made me a fan of the Abuelo Rums. Sweet and not expensive!
This was one of the few high end rums available where I use to live. I did a lot of racing on my sailboat and this was our official crew rum.
On the rocks: smooth, semi-dry yet not sugary, delicate taste of molasses, medium body. An excellent product at a civilized price.
Don't make any mistake, this undeniably is a rum, the aroma is in fact very typical of a rum, the taste is little spicy and quite strong but it isn't a nasty burn, I can taste nuts, vanilla, maybe even slight note of cinnamon, all still packing good punch. There is also a little hint of banana peel as the rum comes down the throat, but all the tastes are simply mixed with a rather strong alcohol taste, it isn't disgusting but it still is enough of a nuisance to lower the score. Not much more to say about this one, apart from it not being too sweet and or too complicated, with little aftertaste and lingering. Solid rum for the price, but no award winner.
