Not a great nose but I love the mouth. Nose Israel syrupy with aromas of woods. Mouth is smooth with a very good blend of spicies. Very aromatic, with a good dry/sweet balance. Coffee is the stingiest note but has also some vanilla and something else, some herb which I like but can't tell what it is.
Quite a good rum, taste of hazelnuts and toasted bread. Very smooth mouth. My girlfriend who usualy doesn't like rum but really apreaciates whisky loved it. So if you want to bring a whisky fan to the wonderful world of rums... This one is a great starting point!
I think that Abuelo 7 years is really smooth and sweet, spicy tasting rum. Hint of choclate. And prize is pretty low.
I will admit that i only tried a sampler of this rum. My memories recall a decent experience, with some melasse sweetness, and a slightly dry tobaco finish on a medium body.
This is one of the truly wonderful rums you can get without breaking the bank. The funny secret is it is cheaper but somehow slightly better than the Abuelo 12 anos. I've met others that agree, it has a smoothness that its older brother lacks. Perfect with a dash of seltzer and a squirt of fresh pineapple juice.
A well balanced nose with vanilla, caramel and some sweet (dried) fruits. The taste even gives way to some faint cocoa notes. Also quite a pleasant toasted finish. Considering the price level in the Netherlands of just over 20 euro's it's one of the better deals on a rum available.
($50CAD) Not too much coming to the nose, but theirs a faint smokiness that is enticing. Charred oak and candied cherries.
The taste is much of the same with an explosion of flavour. I don’t remember the 12 being this intense, though I did love it. This is my new favourite in the cabinet. Tons of flavour and fun on the tongue. Give me more!
Got this after exhausted row of locally available Abuelo Anejo 1L to find nice bending towards confectionery of the established mainstream rums. Has that vanilla and lingering sweetness about it, slightly suspicious towards similar effect of the artificial sweeteners. Very moderate, which makes this spirit stay open for abuse. Great weekend or festivity-anticipation evening break. So far, I find Abuelo logic justified.
