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.
this is one the best rum ever...after the 12yo of the same company...lot of flavour..you can drink it as it or as i prefer with cola and lemon
My first review on the site concerns this tasty little beast that I really love! I won't dilate : an absolutely smooth & balanced (both in the nose & in the mouth) rum, not distinctly sweet like its older brother (12 years). A rather aromatic rum with an easygoing character & at a great price, all these make it a great everyday choice for the beginners & the experienced seadogs alike!
Abuelo is one of the few distilleries in the world that uses sugar cane from their own plantations. This Panamanian rom is one of the most appreciated in the world and is famous for its very soft texture and its very supple and friendly body of flavors.
This is my wife's favorite. Even though I am constantly trying new rums, she always comes back to this. Aging gives this Panamanian rum a host of flavors. Smooth mouth with nice blend of spices. Creamy with a little hint of vanilla at the end.
This rum smells very floral. At first it tastes floral which changes into soft honey and cocoa notes. I love to drink this rum straight up, but to convince rum haters that Rum is an heavenly spirit one can make an old fashioned with this Rum (sugarcane syrup, ron abuelo rum, orange bitters, and ice cubes) stirr all ingredients and garnish with an orange zest. That'll do!
Hints of chocolate, vanilla, wood and spice with some smokiness.
Good on its own but not wasted with a mixer, such as a light ginger beer (Fever-Tree). It was a present, so cannot comment on price or value.
surprising to me in that I had no knowledge of this brand. I had not read anything, or heard anything pro or con. I got a 1.75 on sale for about $15.00 and have enjoyed it as a mixer.
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.
I may be in the market for a $100+ bottle of rum as a celebratory rum due to something that may be coming up for me. In the discussion area I asked for recommendations and Ron Abuelo Centuria was recommended. Unfortunately no one locally has that in stock and the best I could find was the 7 Anos Reserva Superior. So I picked up a bottle to try. I will say up front that I find this one of the best values for rum. Definitely a fine rum that could be sold for double the price. Right off the bat I noticed the rich aroma in the bottle. Sipping some revealed a very noticeable sweetness...perhaps too sweet for some...however it is balanced with a multitude of flavors that sadly my uneducated palate cannot identify. However after the slow, rather mild burn (yes, it is a smooth rum) faded, I could detect some caramel to it. And that tempts another sip. This rum is a bargain and should be a required addition to any rum cabinet. A "must have". Extremely versatile as well.
Expected no less than great from Abuelo. Good balance of wood notes and sweetness. First time I sat down with the bottle, I ended up finishing half.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Cedr, lesní med, vanilka, kůže a máta. Bohužel je aroma uzavřenější, musím ve sklence víc hledat. (84 b)
Chuť: Medově nasládlá chuť, pikantní exotická dřevitost, lehce koření. Chuť je uhlazená, ale výraznější než aroma a poměrně bohatá. (86 b)
Shrnutí: Tohle je příjemný rum, za cenu okolo pětistovky je to určitě dobrý nákup. Levnější Abuelo Añejo je o dost horší, dražší Abuelo 12y zase o hodně lepší. Myslím, že odstupňované jak cenově, tak i kvalitou to v Abuelu mají velmi dobře a cenový nárůst dobře kopíruje nárůst kvality.
I believe this is the best product they have. Great for mixing. It tastes like no other. The more aged abuelo rums are better than this one.
I was in Panama last year and only discovered the 7 Anos just before i left (i did bring a bottle home with me though). Up until then i was drinking the standard Abuelo Anejo. The 7 Anos is well worth the slight increase in price if you're after a sipper, its much smoother with a lovely sweet/slightly spicy taste.
Definitely agree that there are better out there, but this is a nice one too. Very Central American in terms of light color, soft and subtle taste, but without crossing into blandness. I love the bottle too. Definitely could be a bit cheaper but not bad at mid-$20s. Have seen it at JFK duty free for $18, which would be an outrageous bargain.
This rum has a light amber, honey colour. Floral, vanilla and karamel on the nose. Medium body with a great round texture. Great balance between sweet and dry with taste of toffee, karamel, vanilla and flowers or apple blossom to be more specific. Some leather and smoke in the finish.
Good luck finding a better rum with this age / price range
This was the very first aged rum bottle I ever purchased. Found it in a little gift shop in Vero Beach FL and thought I would try it. This is how I crossed the barrier from bourbon to rum and it was really good, especially for the price. Recommend this all day long to anyone who is looking to get into rum for a small investment.
