Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
First this is a 7.5 in my book.
Drinking neat isn't the best idea because it is somewhat harsh upfront, but not harsh in a terrible front to back way like Bacardi Gold. It gives a little sting and heat so I can see someone enjoying it neat for this unique trait. Smelling it you get a large amount of cask smell followed by some vanilla and alcohol. Drinking it cola is similar to Brugal's line, large amount of cask taste and light alcohol in background. Very good in cola would recommend in it especially at 10$ a bottle.
-Stinging upfront bite when drank neat, not too bad can be enjoyable.
-10$ a bottle cant go wrong
-One of those "woodsy" rums both smelling and taste. Similar to Brugal Rum
-Very good in cola
This Abuelo Rum is really the cheap one. Its taste is alcohol a d alcohol. Even mixing it makes you drink an alcohol mix!
Než ochutnáte doporučuji přivonět, voní opravdu krásně. Je to relativně mladý rum a proto tak i chutná, je cítit. Alkohol je silně cítit, chuť je ještě nedozrálá. Vzhledem k ceně lze jen doporučit, ve skleničce ostudu neudělá a do koktejlů bude podle mě výborný.
Es un ron agradable y a mí parecer suave, pero lo que más me ha gustado ha sido ese sabor a madera, me encantará probar rones más añejos de la misma marca, aunque en Ceuta será dificil
Tenía buenas expectativas con este ron, pero me ha defraudado para tomarlo solo que es como me gusta, en nariz no destaca ningún aroma más allá del alcohol, en boca confirma lo mismo, sabor tenue, aroma debil y retrogusto poco amigable, en su favor he de decir que es suave y asequible en precio y para mojitos puede servir estupendamente.
Had it during a flight to South America. I drank it straight with no ice and found it harsh in nose (strong alcohol smell) with some hints of caramel/sugar and vanilla. In mouth it was very dry and woody, with an alcohol taste as well. Mellow after burn.
It is a good rum to have at home to share with friends who don’t know much about rums or to mix it in cocktails. It is cheap also!
Well for the money spent it was OK, but I wouldn't buy it again
Quite light colour. Strong alcohol in the nose with hints of vanilla. More vanilla in the taste, together with harsh alcohol and some sugar. Enjoyable when you want a strong, but flavourfull shot. Would be nicer if it was smoother.
This one didnt impress me, I was suprised that it have some smokey turf finish but it not something that I am looking in rums at all.
No than you I will skip on that
Nice rum for a very good price.
This rum is rolling over your tongue very smooth and has a light caramel aftertaste.
Good rum for mixing for a too shelf mixed libation. Adds a bit of kick to any cocktail and makes your mouth a Happy place.
its great vor mixed drink! better than havana or captain morgen! but not then brugal anejo
gut zum mixen! besser als havana oder captain morgen! aber nöd besser als brugal;)
Soft and nicely sweet rum.
Good price and well worth a try.
Dobry rum, osobne sa mi pil velmi dobre po cely vecer.
Enjoyed drinking Abuelo rum & coke and lime at Panama restaurant with centollo crab....it is smooth and mixes well as a cuba-libre in the humidity & heat of the skyscraper city
Got the 1.75 litre bottle for $15 dollars while in Panama. Didnt expect nothing good from it, but was surprised when I found its a decent rum. Not on the rocks, but makes a good cuba libre.
Very, very good price/performance - tastes and looks far better than it costs. It is a pearl among other rums in low price category. Actuakly enjoyable even for siping
This is a satisfying, easily found (at least in Europe), well priced rum. It is easy on the nose, and totally acceptable as a nice night-cap especially on the rocks. For me it is a little too boozy tasting to be sipped neat. It serves well as a nice treat to drink with guests and the flavors come alive (a creamy, oaky vanilla) when on ice. Also a solid addition to any cocktail calling for a gold or aged rum. Categorically worth the price of admission. It is like the movie that you could have lived without but you are actually happy you saw.
Very smooth. Almost too smooth as it seems almost watered down. Really good but you might drink too much too fast.
This quickly became my favourite, and remains in my top 5. Delicious, sweet and smooth.
Ότι πρέπει γι αυτήν την τιμή ..... πιθανόν τα κριτήρια βαθμολογίας να ποικίλουν, με τους "διάφορους ' που βαθμολογούν εδώ μέσα. Ένα Anejo που σέβεται την τιμή του , ιδιαίτερο και .... οικονομικό!!! Σίγουρα δε μπορώ να το βαθμολογήσω πάνω από το 12αρι (8) , αλλά αν σας έχουν μείνει μόνο 20€ και βρίσκεστε σε μία κάβα ..... Πάρτε αυτό .
*Σε άλλες χώρες μπορεί να κοστίζει ακόμα φθηνότερα !
Dit is mijn absolute favoriet voor een Cuba Libre. Heerlijke goud kleurige zachte rum.
You're not too bad, way better than I'd expected, but nothing special. It'll do fairly well up against Puerto Rican and Dominican rums, it brings the heat and drinks like an industrial rum.
A good value demerara rum for the price point.
Smells nice, bit dry, wooden taste, short aftertaste but warms up fine...
Nice aroma, warm and ballanced first taste with wooden tones. Short aftertaste. This rum won't play no games with you - nonadded sugar, caramel or spice, only young sthraight rum.
