Seller: upsynthau (65) 100%, Location: Sydney, Ships to: AU, Item: 291396000807 Brand: Ron Abuelo, Type: Rum, Age: 5 Year Old, Volume: 700mL, Country of origin: Panama, Details: Ron Abuelo Añejo Reserva Especial rum aged minimum five years Panama 40% ALC/VOL 700mL Ron Abuelo Rum You thought cigars from Panama were good. The rum is amazing. Produced by three generations of Varela’s, this exquisite melt-in-your rum dates back to 1908. Ron Abuelo is how a rum should be. Made from the distillation of sugar cane, the rum’s balanced flavour can only be attributed to its faithful heritage and considered family commitment. One that’s lasted over a century. 2,000 hectares of sugar cane are grown next to the distillery for no other purpose than to bring us this sweet, complex rum of the gods. Ron Abuelo rum is stored in fine American Oak barrels for a minimum of five years. These barrels were once used to age some fine old bourbon whiskey, so there’s a bit of that flavour, in terms of vanilla, spices and toasted coconut. It’s a blend that is perfectly balanced and has never faltered in its expectations of a smooth, smutty, sweet-spiced rum. Mouth watering yet? Read the tasting notes. Ron is a daiquiri’s best friend. A papa doble’s mistress. And glass of Coke’s best mate. It’s a dam fine rum that makes the bloke in anyone purr. One sip and you’ll question the Queensland polar bear variety. About Añejo: Crafted using fermented Panamanian molasses, Ron Abuelo Añejo is a blend of aged rums that have spent a minimum of five years in fine American oak casks previously used to age bourbon. Añejo is created using a combination of traditional and modern technical procedures to achieve a superior level of excellence. Enjoy this Reserva Especial neat, on the rocks, or with your favourite mixer. Notes: Ron Abuelo Añejo is bright golden amber in the glass. This medium-bodied rum features a soft and supple entry with hints of sweet fruit, toasted coconut, vanilla and other delicate spices. Mocha, nuts and sweet spice fade into a finish that lingers for a very balanced flavour.
