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.
More soft than Bacardi 8,The same proce range,good relation of the price towards wuality, i drink it on ice
Good and affordable for those who like it dry! This rum is a bargain depending where you buy it.
FYI I drink it neat. It's not as mahogany colored as other aged rums and even though it is graded at 37,5º and it's not super complex it has character and strenght. This rum is not overly sweet (which is good if that's not your thing), it's woody and carries an oaky flavour. Would like to try the 12 yrs to see what it has to offer over this.
In terms of flavour this Abuelo 7 remindes me of Malteco 10 - they are both a little too subtle for my taste.
Abuelo is less honeyed and more chocolatey and spicier, but also a little less smoother than Malteco 10.
This is a decent enough rum that deserves 7 points. I find Diplomatico Reserva to be more full of character but all in all I do not regret buying this Abuelo 7. Price is very reasonable, too.
Spicy with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.
Petit rhum à prix très abordable, piquant un peux au nez et en bouche, sympa à servir autour d'une table
Fin rom, til pengene. Har en god eftersmag uden at blive for sød.
I finally opened one of the bottles I picked up a couple years back on closeout. I was hoping this would give me a better idea of what the Abuelo 12 yr would be like with a lot less added sugar, and I wasn't disappointed. Although it is still pretty sweet, it is not the syrupy mess that the 12 year is and a lot more intensity comes through. Due to the way rum is labeled, the ":12 year" could have a few teaspoons of 12 year old rum and a lot more sugar added to make it seem more of a "premium aged rum". This has half as much - approximately 15 g/ltr vs 30 for the 12 year. I would love to taste what this would be like with no sugar at all, but alas the blenders have decided not to give me that option.
Was very surprised and pleased with this rum. Nice nose of maple sirup from Canada with hints of Vanila and spices ...
Round smooth texture in the mouth. Quite good mass market rum from Panama.
Not sure though dry Agricole rum lovers would like this style though.
Abuelo sa goûte la molasse pomal comme si un en rajoutais dans sont vers.

Good price for a smooth sweet rum. The cubata excellent and straight up too quite sipper.
Great on the nose but flavor is far more simple in the glass though still rewarding with relatively strong smokey oak, and a very abrupt chocolate caramel finish.
Abuelo is a fine smelling rum with some shades of raisins, chocolate and melase in the smell, but the taste id very uncomplicated, whisky-like with outstanding influence of wood.
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.
rhum en rapport avec son prix. Pas transcendant mais tout de même correct qui au vu du prix mériterait une meilleure note mais bon... ça reste moyen à mon gout.
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 is okay Rum but miss some body and aftertaste, easy to drink and it is okay straight. I have read that it is among the best 7 years Rum! Price is really ok, I paid around 18 euros in Spain.
Good rum at good price. Little hint of honey in aroma and taste. Good with few drops of water or with one small ice-cube.
lidt skarp, lidt sprittet, men stor smag, stor duft og god tør sødme. masser af fylde og god eftersmag. Dejligt at opleve for så billig en rom
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.
Excellent for mixing, but the 12 year is better for sipping.
my first rum. Thin taste, seems very sweet to me. Nothing special. Not well balanced. Happy to taste it, but not repeating...
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.
Excellent aroma, above average taste, just the finish could be little bit better.
