Tasty, but not quite great
So smooth you can drink it straight! I have been buying Ron Abuelo as gifts on my numerous visit to Panama. I'd never tried it until recently I'm hooked!
Very real, down to the earth, no ungrounded ambitions. Can't find it under ten euro, it is about sixteen here, yet does stand this mark allright. I guess, comparison to the whiskey or bourbon is valid (rums often do mature in bourbon casks, you know). And yet it has that tiny special charge to it, that makes you check this position on the shelf again, to find it's gone. How come, isn't? Found larger bottle at another place, might be different batch, makes next direction to explore. In solid enough and affordable manner.
Next stop did happen: 1L container spotted elsewhere actually did contain another batch, possibly from the year before, or such. And it happened to make even better experience, upgrading my valuation. Well-balanced and unobtrusive, this is where you may want to land, seeking for your next. Actually, lack of distractions does it serious service. If you want that rum-offset, charged with vanilla, ice-cream, caffè latte and what's not - this is NOT the case. This is down-to-the-earth mix of spirits, ramificated in the casks of fate. No more, no less, real rum without fancy tails attached.
NEXT UPDATE: Unfortunately, only one last btl left after couple of months of tasting and refining valuation.
This one is a very nice and smooth rum from Panama, with some vanilla and spiced notes. Nice one to serve with a cigar to me.
Very, very good price/performance - tastes and looks far better than it costs. It is a pearl among other rums in low price category. Actuakly enjoyable even for siping
Had a few bottles of this, as I was surprised at the quality. Easy drinking, smooth and not too sweet. Mixes well with coke, or just on the rocks.
