Got this 5cl sample in batch No2 from RR Tasting Club and participated in the virtual tasting yesterday.
The Abuelo XII Two Oaks is a 12yo rum stored in two different types of oak barrels. First on traditional Tennessee whiskey / bourbon casks during 11 years, and then a final storage on deep-fried casks of new American white oak.
It’s produced from both molasses and sugar cane juice by Varela Hermanos.
The sugar content is 24 gpl, so it’s sweet but not extremely sweet.
In nose it’s possible to recognize smoke, vanilla and coffee.
In mouth and palate it’s possible to recognize the same aromas + chocolate, but it’s also spicy and of course sweet.
Picture: My emptied sample.

Ok, this is right up my alley. Wonderfully sweet, sherry aroma with hints of oak. The flavor is that of smooth bourbon, molasses, vanilla, and subtle spices. The finish has very little burn and leaves you wanting more. Looking forward to getting a bottle soon.

Duft af træ og tobak. Også et hint af noget, der er ristet. Smagen er varm af røg og tobak, men også lidt karamel. Rommen fylder meget og har en meget lang eftersmag. Abuelo laver fornuftig rom, og det bliver aldrig rigtig dårligt. Denne har også fået en plads i skabet, sammen med 5 og 7 års samt hele XV serien. (10. december 2021 i 1423)

This is an incredible rum sweet but not to sweet like the centuria or xv sherry. Incredible going down no bite you can drink this all day and of course you can share with a special person omw to get a bottle

Many thanks to the Rum Ratings team for shipping this as part of their Rum Ratings Club quarterly shipments (they also shipped a mini bottle of the Abuelo Centuria, among other rums!!!)

Because this is a bourbon aged rum, I didn't expect to like it as much as the Abuelo Tawny, Oloroso, or Napoleon rums. But I found this better than all of them! The Centuria is still king of the Abuelos to me, but this is my #2 Abuelo as of this review. Has a nice sweetness to it that complements the bourbon aging well.

Smells and tastes of molasses, spice, almonds, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, and oak.

A very good rum and a big surprise!

Dunkles sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase weich und ausgewogen. Satte dumpfe Töne verleihen dem Ganzen eine ordentliche Tiefe. Karamell und welke Blumen verleiten in eine andere Dimension. Doch das erloschene Lagerfeuer dominiert Alles.
Am Gaumen warm und weich. Etwas Karamell und Schokolade mit einer permanenten Schärfe. Undefiniert hasten die Aromen an den Geschmacksknospen vorbei. Tropisch Regenwälder brennen im Hintergrund.
Im Abgang etwas spritzig und prickelnd aber leider etwas zu schnell weg, zurück bleit eine leichte Bitterkeit.
Ein leichter Panama Rum ohne aufdringlichen Schokogeschmack, dafür eher verkohlt. Für Freunde des BBQ und Entdecker.

Dark rich amber in the glass.
Soft and balanced on the nose. Rich dull tones add a decent depth. Caramel and wilted flowers entice you into another dimension. But the extinguished campfire dominates everything.
Warm and soft on the palate. Some caramel and chocolate with a permanent spiciness. Undefined, the flavors rush past the taste buds. Tropical rainforests burn in the background.
Finishes somewhat tangy and sparkling but unfortunately gone a bit too quickly, leaving a slight bitterness.
A light Panama Rum without intrusive chocolate flavor, but rather charred. For friends of BBQ and explorers.

Oaky, a bit smokey and full-bodied and just sweet and fruity enough without it getting overwhelming. Very nice but a little too sharp to reach all the way
