Tasty, but not quite great
Questo rum panamense, dalla colorazione dorata o ambrata chiara, con sentori non importanti ma presenti di uvetta passa o di frutta secca al naso, appare leggermente speziato e secco anche al palato.
Si tratta di un rum che richiama molto il whisky e forse è più adatto a chi preferisce quest'ultimo, perché come rum devo ammettere, che non rientra tra i miei favoriti, si lascia bere, ma a me personalmente non dice nulla di speciale. Per la sua fascia di prezzo, forse, può ancora essere passabile, probabilmente è valido come rum da cocktail, o come rum da battaglia, altrimenti, volendo spendere anche non molto di più, si può trovare di assai meglio.
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!
