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.
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.
This was the bottle that started my rum addiction years ago. When i had to rate it back then it would get an 10/10 but over the years there where a lot of even better rums to come. I fell in love with panama rums... this is still my all day rum, nice sweetness, good body and a unbeatable price for what you get. Will ever offer the abuelo 7 to people they are sceptical to rum;)
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.
This is a fine sipping rum with lots of complex flavor. I would have rated it higher but it is a little too sweet for my taste. This stuff hit the spot after skiing powder all day in Colorado.
The 7 yo Abuelo is a well balanced rum like it's 12 year old brother. Not the same roundness in taste though but nice. Nose: caramel, nuts and vanilla. Palate: butterscotch, light chocolate and vanilla.
I thought this is an ok rum first time I've tried it. Got two bottles, the 7 and the 12 anos directly from Panama during holiday travel. But then I tasted the 12 anos and I felt like I had to spit the 7 anos one. The 7 anos just tastes rough with too much burn.
La presentación sobria pero justa para el precio, desde la apertura puedes notar el predominio dulce del Ron y al probarlo verás que te encuentras frente a un ron muy suave y con el justo sabor a azucar para los amantes de las bebidas dulces.
Al final detectó un pequeño sabor a menta que me encantó.
Smooth coffee aroma along with fruitiness of jackfruit and fresh coconut flesh. Lightly burned butter with vanilla pod. The let down will be the sharp (nail polish) finishing on the nose towards the end.
Floral and fruity. A bowl of cereal with raisins, dried fruit and drizzle with honey. Still manage to enjoy the burned butter with vanilla but lesser compare to aroma.
Finished with honey suckle but it ended too soon.
Definitely a good choice to start the night with!
