That's some good stuff
I prefer this to the Abuelo XV Oloroso and XV Napoleon. To me, the port has a much nicer smell and taste than the sherry or cognac does.
Semi-sweet, which smells and tastes of port, brown sugar, spice, leather, berries (from the port), and cacao. Definitely good. But for port aged rums I prefer the Foursquare 9-Year Port Cask Finish even more as it has a little better flavor. :-)
Medium Dry, with full sweet red grapes taste. Very woody. Long finish. Superb color, great high notes, one can really feel the Tawny Porto wine in it.
As a South American who grew up driving by the sugar cane plantations, rum has always been close to my heart.
This expression of Panamá's Abuelo is absolutely refined and smooth, punching above its weight when compared to other sublime and more expensive drams.
It's sweet and polished, thick on that first sip and not at all sharp on the palate. Notes of port and sticky date pudding. Superb!
First night in Panama the Hilton had the entire double aged series on display. I am partial to Port aged rums and tried this one first. Deep dark color in the bottle smooth and not to sweet with a nice port finish. Highly recommend.
Beautiful. Port cask aging shines through. Oak and white pepper notes. Very smooth. Great balance. Another superior rum from Abuelo. Long sweet finish. I like the Sherry cask finish just a bit better but this is sumptuous. A definite 9.
u nombre dice mucho añejado por 14 años en barrica de roble blanco americano y un año en barril de oporto este rum se hace presente con notas dulce en boca lo va a dejar como el favorito de las niñas ya veran un sabor para enamorarse por solo 65.00 excelente calidad
Here's a rum from Panama 🇵🇦 presented at 40%ABV. This Abuelo is a blend of rums averaging 14 years maturation and finished in a tawny port cask.
On the nose there's molasses, strawberry, honey, cherry, orange zest, raisin, honey, pepper, oak and it's sweet.
The palate is creamy, syrupy, vanilla and cherry cola.
The finish is long (surprising given the low ABV) with caramel, coffee, oak and walnut.
This rum has a lovely nose and is quite viscous for the ABV. Very syrupy but not artificially so - this would be a great rum to give to someone starting off in spirits or not familiar with rum - I think it would be a general crowd-pleaser: easy going, well made, sweet but with some complexity.
