Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Abuelo 7 Anos Reserva Superior is produced in Panama and is one of three rums produced in the Ron Abuelo line. As the name suggests, it has been aged for 7 years in oak bourbon barrels and is blended before being bottled.
I think that Abuelo 7 years is really smooth and sweet, spicy tasting rum. Hint of choclate. And prize is pretty low.
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!
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.
good balance and a good rum. This is the second rum from Abuelo that has proven excellent.
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.
Good choice, smooth rum, in Abuelo chart in the middle.
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.
One of my go to day-to-day rums, and one that I bring to friends instead of wine. Mixes well and also nice over ice.
This is my wife's favorite. Even though I am constantly trying new rums, she always comes back to this. Aging gives this Panamanian rum a host of flavors. Smooth mouth with nice blend of spices. Creamy with a little hint of vanilla at the end.
Has a heavy Sweetness and good power. Not too much at all. With a hint of orange. Very good compared to the price.
So there I am, standing in the Rum isle of the liquor store looking for a good rum as I was all out at home. There wasn't what I'd call a great rum amongst the lot of them. I then I see this rum and it has a little write up with it and rating that it's been given. It's a little pricey, $58.00 ish, but if it's as good as they say I don't mind paying for it. On my first sip I was extremely disappointed. Not much nose and it's BITTER to the taste. At the time I wasn't even sure I would finish the entire bottle. However eventually I did and in the end I didn't mind it as much as when I first tried it but not enough to spend that kind of money on it.
I believe this is the best product they have. Great for mixing. It tastes like no other. The more aged abuelo rums are better than this one.
I may be in the market for a $100+ bottle of rum as a celebratory rum due to something that may be coming up for me. In the discussion area I asked for recommendations and Ron Abuelo Centuria was recommended. Unfortunately no one locally has that in stock and the best I could find was the 7 Anos Reserva Superior. So I picked up a bottle to try. I will say up front that I find this one of the best values for rum. Definitely a fine rum that could be sold for double the price. Right off the bat I noticed the rich aroma in the bottle. Sipping some revealed a very noticeable sweetness...perhaps too sweet for some...however it is balanced with a multitude of flavors that sadly my uneducated palate cannot identify. However after the slow, rather mild burn (yes, it is a smooth rum) faded, I could detect some caramel to it. And that tempts another sip. This rum is a bargain and should be a required addition to any rum cabinet. A "must have". Extremely versatile as well.
Good rum in the 7Y category with an adequate price.
This one is the classic between my friends. We always return to it. Pleasant rum for a great price.
This is one of my go to rums. Can use it for a mixer or alone in a glass. I would suggest this to people looking for a good all purpose rum.
This used to be my favourite daily sipper, pure, no water nor ice, untill the appleton 12 came along. This is still a magnificent rum especially at the price it' s for sale (25 EUROS). Very middle of the road in every regard, not too stingy, not too woody or bitter or sweet. But this does not mean it is bland! Not by far. Decent three stage taste development. Just a very good spanish style rum
One of the dyest rums that I ever had. The rums is very sweet and has a unique flavour. It has a gold colour and the afterdrunk is long. I was amazed by this rum. Good price - quality.
For a moment I thought I had a Zacapa 15
Very similar, but a bit sharper.
Glass: Amber, slightly shallow aroma
Nose: Dried fruit, caramel, well balanced
Mouth: Burst of alcohol gives way to figs and toffee, restrained sweetness (2-3/5)
It don't quite rate it as pleasant as the young Zacapa, but it is a lot cheaper, hence same rating.
cada vez mas me convenzo de que la mezcla para hacer los 7 años es unica uno de mis rones y lo mejor es que viene en 750ml
Muy superior al anejo. De puede tomar solito, apenas dulzon con un poco de sabor a madera
This rum was introduced to me by my godfather a couple years ago, and since then, i have ordered all those who for some reason pass through Panama. Is a good rum to taste.
My first review on the site concerns this tasty little beast that I really love! I won't dilate : an absolutely smooth & balanced (both in the nose & in the mouth) rum, not distinctly sweet like its older brother (12 years). A rather aromatic rum with an easygoing character & at a great price, all these make it a great everyday choice for the beginners & the experienced seadogs alike!
