Tasty, but not quite great
Hints of chocolate, vanilla, wood and spice with some smokiness.
Good on its own but not wasted with a mixer, such as a light ginger beer (Fever-Tree). It was a present, so cannot comment on price or value.
Good and affordable for those who like it dry! This rum is a bargain depending where you buy it.
FYI I drink it neat. It's not as mahogany colored as other aged rums and even though it is graded at 37,5º and it's not super complex it has character and strenght. This rum is not overly sweet (which is good if that's not your thing), it's woody and carries an oaky flavour. Would like to try the 12 yrs to see what it has to offer over this.
In terms of flavour this Abuelo 7 remindes me of Malteco 10 - they are both a little too subtle for my taste.
Abuelo is less honeyed and more chocolatey and spicier, but also a little less smoother than Malteco 10.
This is a decent enough rum that deserves 7 points. I find Diplomatico Reserva to be more full of character but all in all I do not regret buying this Abuelo 7. Price is very reasonable, too.
