Gut ausbalancierter Ron mit Charakter
In der Nase angenehme Holznoten mit einer fruchtigen Frische.
Im Gaumen sehr elegant und geschmeidig, Vanille, Karamell, getrocknete süsse Früchte...
Im Abgang schwingt eine dezente Schwere mit.
Well balanced Ron with character.
In the nose pleasant wood notes with a fruity freshness.
On the palate very elegant and supple, vanilla, caramel, dried sweet fruits ...
There is a subtle weight in the finish.
Miel fruity nose, hay. Leathery mouth with miel, banana, oak.
En nariz especias,pasas,miel,un cuerpo imponente,un sabor aumado ,dulce pero no empalagoso,y un final extraordinario
This is indeed a tasty, sweet rum. Subtle sweet aroma in the bottle. The flavor is not bad but there is some flavor in their that I don't really care for. That's the main reason why I didn't give it an "8". The aftertaste (post burn) is better. I just cannot put my finger on what that odd flavor it. Oh well. Otherwise a very nice rum.
What a nice rum this is.
A great complex aroma in the glass which you expect with rum's that are a bit older and in a higher price range then this one.
I really like the taste of it and it's very smooth.
The after taste is also very nice.
Nothing wrong with this rum, but nothing special either. I'm not tasting anything memorable like the woodsy oak in the Pampero or the more complex finish in the Barcelo. I'm sure I'll enjoy the bottle just not sure I'm making Abuelo a go to.
Je ne le connaissais pas mais bon choix, je le conseille
Taste is good, a little to sweet for me. Similar to Zacapan but with more oak taste.
Why unexpected? Was for some reason not too sure what to think, it initially had a cheaper alcoholic whiff which burnt off quick. Very shortly afterwards I realized that I need to keep a bottle of this around, like a Ron Barrilito or a Diplomatico Reserve Exlusiva. Has a really nice unique flavor; wood, sweet chocolate and some vanilla. Wouldn't dare mix this, would through a bottle of Zaya instead to save it!
first tried abuelo 7 and did not like its thin taste and fany sweetness. 12 is a different story, very fruitfull smell, yet you know you are drinking rum. Seems somehow filimial to Barcelo Imperial. Long sweet aftertaste.
fantastic says it all. The smell is sweet and alluring. Tastes of raisin, molasses, and a little oak. Truly one of the best I have tried recently.
Bottle: Normal bottle, nothing fancy 0,5/1
Colour: Dark amber
Aroma: Some vanilla. 1/2
Taste: Nice and smooth. Something fruity in there. Maybe too sweet for me. I don't recall much difference from 7yo 4/5
Aftertaste: There is something I don't like 1,5/2
With this rum and probably whole Abuelo collection I have problem - sometimes I really love this rum and sometimes I have to force myself to finishing the glass. I assume it depends on my mood and what I have eaten that day but still I never know what to think about these rums.
Very sweet and nicely full aroma, taste being a tad on the simpler side. Nice sipper none the less.
Smooth, something you can drink straight. Enjoyed with friends.
Sweet and with caremel flavour. Reminds me of Diplomatico
Krásně voní, chuť výborná, co si přát víc, vedle Diplomatica Reserva, Ron de Jeremy parádní volba
Jemný, krásně voní po karamelu s trochou kouře. Spousta potěšení za pár peněz.
To my palate, this tastes a wee bit like Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, but with much more "fire". Also hints of sherry, raisins and vanilla. Beautiful tasting Rum, sweet but not overly so.
I do like the wood in this one and I do like the little burn and the taste of caramel and molasses that you have in your mouth just after you have finished it. But it just ends there, can't feel the magic in this one, don't know why, maybe it is too sweet, maybe I had better rums so I can't be objective with this one. Price in Europe might be interesting but for 5€ you can have a lot of better bottles.
Sweet and tasteful, but too much flavor of dried prune or raisins for me.
This may be a feature of panamanian rum, there was same flavor in Rum Nation Panama.
Nose : Sweet, caramel, fruit.
Taste : Just like the nose its very good. Caramel is there from the start and the some sweet fruit and nuts.
Very good rhum and creamy.
Bon petit ron à un rapport qualité prix correct pour un 12 ans
I quite like this, even if I paid a little more than I think it is worth, at around £45.
It's a little spirity, so hot on the tongue and the back of the throat, but that's forgiveable because of how the flavours develop in the mouth.
On the nose, it's all about toffee and honey. A hint of calvados apples but otherwise, not much fruit here.
It has a sweet aroma which tells you that this is a sweet rum, but when you taste, it isn't as sweet as you might expect. Initialy, it has very dark sugar, almost treacle. This segues into a quite bitter oakiness which fades through a sort-of gin-like finish. I feel that if this rum has been sweetened, it was probably done for a good reason.
I mean, it isn't fabulously complex, but it leaves you wanting more.
pur schmeckt er mit nicht, ist hald auch nicht süss. aber für zum mixen super.. für das hald etwas teuer.
