Very nice surprise. This is the first Abuelo rum that I’ve tried and I am very pleased. Beautiful caramel color. Sweet nose of sherry and oak. Elegant mixture of flavors such as vanilla, caramel, dark fruits, and spice. The finish is a bit sweet but no harsh burn and extremely smooth.

Got a sample of this in my second batch from RR Tasting Club and participated in the virtual tasting yesterday.
The Abuelo XV Oloroso is 15 years old and is first matured in American oak casks to be finished in Oloroso Sherry casks.
In nose it’s possible to recognize smoke, wood, citrus and Sherry.
In mouth and palate it’s possible to also recognize those aromas but it’s also fruity and nutty and of course sweet. Read somewhere that a hydrometer test gave 44 gpl. The finish is medium long.
Picture: My emptied sample.

Another 5 cl sample from RR tasting club, presented at a very nice online meeting.

The aroma is sour and not very intense, dominated by humid wood. One can sense fresh notes and cane, probably coming from the cane-juice-based component. Sweet fruity aromas are also present after some time.

In he mouth this rum strikes with sugar. Grapes, apples, raisins, apricots, plums and other sweet fruits appear but not to last too long. It is mild, the wood is almost absent, attenuated by taste of almonds. There is short woody finish but the tastes are gone very fast.

The overall experience is like drinking a thick sweet syrup. Not my cup of tea, unfortunately.

If you like whisky, especially Scorch whisky yuo are going to love this. Really good. Very very smooth. Very balanced. Deep sherry and oak notes. Coffee and a hint of molasses. Vanilla fading in the background. Great finish. Long smooth and subtle. This is some great sipping rum.

Enjoyed a glass of Ron Abuelo XV Oloroso Sherry Cask edition while vacationing in Amsterdam. I'm surprised Ron Abuelo team did not choose a slightly different bottle design from their regular rums. At least the label design is a bit updated from the usual. Color is very deep reddish brown. You get very strong sherry flavors to both nose and palate. Its very unpleasant for my palate. This is quite a sweet rum so hardly any burn at the end, but its simply way too sweet. My ranking for Special Edition Abuelo Rums is Napoleon (8), Tawny (7), Oloroso (5).

... and very sweet Sherry as for that: This is one for you. I do like sherry, but this rum is too much. Too sweet. It is very agreable to the nose (plums and sherry), but then too sweet in your mouth. There is a hint of dark chocolate, though. Dark chocolate that lingers in your palate for a pretty long time.

This rum has a subtly sweet taste and quality. It's actually a somewhat dark gold rum, and the sherry cask finish brings a nice flavor. Probably not up your alley if you don't like sweetness, but I find it light and not cloying.

Sweet nose with notes of brown sugar bananas and vanilla. Medium sweet with a long finish.

All 15 year double finished Abuelo rums were excellent with subtle distinct differences. The sherry cask was not as dry as the port cask and was very pleasing. Dark rich coloration with notes of oak and sherry. All in all very nice rum highly recommend.
