The box looks solid and gloomy. “Nobleness”, a barrel, heather, vanilla, a confectionery aroma spreads from a glass and alcohol breaks through. The taste is multi-layered: first sweet, then burning and bitterness, again sweetness, oilyness, moderate astringency and again burning makes you swallow faster. Also apricot and sourness are felt. This rum is appropriate to dilute slightly with water and the palette of impressions will become even greater. Long aftertaste. Citrus fruits on the table will be very handy, kumquat is perfect. Inebriation brings a minor mood. But in the morning you will not feel the previous load.

Ron Abuelo is a brand that many people have divided opinions towards. I have never tried one of them before, but I wanted to give one of the cask finishes a go.

Nose: Ripe fruit, raisins and cocoa with a bit of oak peaking through
Taste: Oak, ripe fruit, caramel, vanilla, peppercorn and a long and somewhat suprising dry finish with cognac notes
Overall: I am always somewhat reluctant to taste these "cask finishes" that have become more and more popular, because they seldom do anything to impact the taste. With that said you really get a cognac feel in this rum, which helps the complexity quite a lot. I was affraid that this rum would be to sweet, but that was certainly not the case. A great, but a bit to expensive, rum.

This rum was clearlly different, with strong alcohol and dry finish.not to my taste, but good rum.

very mild plesant cognac aftertaste, smooth, medium sweetness and really nice (close to 9) but it needs little more matureness to be great.

Næse af røde bær og eg. Smag af røg, frugt og træ. Røgen er meget gennemtrængende ved de første par sip og dominerer det hele. Hældte til at syvtal, men efterhånden blev den bedre og bedre, så man endte faktisk med at ville have mere. Kan måske nå op på 9. Indtil videre er de to 15 års jeg har smagt ret gode (den anden er Oloroso). Skal helt sikkert prøve den sidste på tawny port. (24. December 2019 i 1423)

Smagt igen i 2020: Fastholder de 8. Cognac i duft. Sødme og ikke så tør. Gode krydderier med lidt smag af jul. Lang eftersmag. Dog alt for dyr ved 600 kr. Burde koste 400-450. (18. December 2019 i MacY)

Sweet coffee nose, chocolatey after taste that goes for ages.

Tento rum ma príjemne prekvapil,bál som sa,že bude prerazat alkoholový podtón,no bol krásne vyvážený. Drevitym charakterom bol naplnený až po okraj,bolo cítiť i ovocie a mierne dymovy chvostik. Určite sa k nemu ešte vratim

Velmi zajímavý rum, umístěný jako vrchol kalendáře 2019. Pro mě osobně asi až čtyřka za Chamarelem, Pusserem a Cihuatanem.
Vůně po vínu a kvašeném ovoci, chuť jemná, olejnatá, po ořeších.

Schönes helles Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase Schokolade mit Gewürzen und Liebstöckel, getoastetes Holz mit Karamell bestrichen mit Moos und Stückchen von kandierten Früchten garniert.
Im Gaumen wunderbar mundfüllend und warm. Süsse Noten von Karamell und zartbitter Schokolade werden ergänzt von tropischen Früchten, Roten Beeren und Gewürzen, das Ganze wird mit einem eleganten Cognac Finish gekrönt.
Im Abgang lang und süss, Karamell, rote Früchte und Beeren mit eleganten Holznoten.
Ein durchaus leckerer Rum, nicht zu süss. Für Geniesser und Entdecker.

Nice light mahogany in the glass.
In the nose chocolate with spices and lovage, toasted wood with caramel coated with moss and pieces of candied fruit garnished.
On the palate wonderfully mouth filling and warm. Sweet notes of caramel and dark chocolate are complemented by tropical fruits, red berries and spices, all crowned by an elegant cognac finish.
Long and sweet finish, caramel, red fruit and berries with elegant wood notes.
A thoroughly delicious rum, not too sweet. For connoisseurs and discoverers.

I think this rum is a nice balance of dry and sweet with the cognac not so heavy that it overwhelms everything else. It's hard to tell if additives have been added to this or not (I'm hoping not) but more than likely some have but even if they have it's not a sugar bomb so that's something. All in all I would drink this one again.
